Healthy, long-lasting, vibrant love is what we all want, and according to our society, popular fairy tales and the media, all you need to “find” real love is a little luck and maybe some magic. As a therapist and relationship expert, I must disagree!
Attracting and building healthy relationships requires attention and intention. @terri_cole (Click to Tweet!)
By taking care of your own mental health and being conscious once you’re in your relationship, you increase your chances of staying happy and growing together. This includes focusing on effective communication, nurturing passion, practicing forgiveness and prioritizing sex.
Let this week’s Real Love Revolution video, “20 Tips to Healthy Love,” act as your guide.
In this video, you will learn 20 Tips to Healthy Love, including:
- How to authentically apologize
- Why it’s important to show physical affection
- How flexibility could change your relationship and your life
- When jealousy is actually just insecurity (Hint: Always!)
- How to appreciate every day with your partner
I shared this list a few years ago on my fourteenth wedding anniversary on Facebook, and the response was overwhelming. I had requests to write an ebook, create a poster and a course. (And I did. Stay tuned for details for the Real Love Revolution starting Feb 1st, 2017.)
The suggestions on the list are all based on my personal experience and working with thousands of clients over the past two decades.
Achieving healthy love can seem impossible and overwhelming, but if you are willing to change, it’s possible.
For people in relationships, sit down together and discuss what could use improvement and if you’re single, use these tips as goals for what you want your next relationship to look like. For all the details discussed in this video and more, download the 20 Tips to Healthy Love Handout. Keep it near you as a reminder of how to achieve the kind of love you want and deserve!
