Try Out This 30 Day Relationship Challenge For Yourself
1) Write 3 Things You Love About Your Partner
Grab a journal or any piece of paper and get to writing.
This is especially good to do on the hard days. It brings your focus to the positive.
2) Plan a Date
Sit down and make a plan. Work out all the details.
This should be fun!
And make sure to put a date on the calendar!
3) Go on a Date
You have to make it happen.
No sense planning a date if you’re not going to actually go on it.
4) Love Languages
You and your partner need to read this book. I honestly believe every couple NEEDS to read this book.
This book is no miracle worker when it comes to the trials and tribulations of marriage. But it will help you and your partner understand each other on a much deeper level.
5) Give Compliments
How often do we give criticism?
We could all benefit from giving and receiving a few more compliments.
6) Write a Letter
Here’s the thing. You have to actually give the letter to them.
This may feel very awkward the first time you do it. I know it did for me! But do it anyway.
7) Practice Listening
If you are like me, you tend to think of what you are going to say quite a bit more than you listen.
There is no way to snap your fingers and be a better listener. But you have to start somewhere, right?
Why not start today?
8) Talk About Something You’ve Been Putting Off
Don’t assume this has to be a bad thing.
This could be anything that has been on your mind or your heart. Make the time to share it.
9) Hold Hands
This may seem like something small. And it is. But it is also something that has a huge impact on your relationship.
Check out all these other small things you can do for your relationship.
10) Put Your Phones Away
I can almost guarantee that most of the stuff on your phone is not more important than your relationship.
11) Say Thank You
Don’t underestimate the power of basic manners.
A hug. A smack on the tush as you walk by.
Even just a touch on the shoulder.
13) Send a Nice Text
A simple text is such an easy way to show someone you are thinking of them.
Give someone an afternoon boost with a sweet, sassy or sexy text.
14) Go To Bed Together
This may not be possible every single night. But at least a few nights a week go to bed together.
Cuddling may be one of my favorite things.
My husband is not such a big fan but he does it for me and I appreciate that.
16) Set A Goal Together
Think about a future goal for your relationship.
You know what? It is perfectly OK to celebrate for no real reason at all.
You both made it through a long, busy or stressful day. Celebrate.
You had a great day. Celebrate.
18) Do Something Nice Just Because
This is not about grand gestures.
This is making a favorite dinner.
Shoveling the driveway instead of waiting for your partner to do it.
And this is also about doing something without the expectation of a returned favor.
19) Post-it Note
Leave a post-it note with an encouraging message somewhere your partner will see it first thing in the morning or when they get home at the end of the day.
This takes no time at all. Go do this right now!
20) Let Them Choose
Let your partner choose the restaurant or the movie.
Maybe let them choose the paint color for the living room.
You get the idea, right?
We can bo so quick to be set on things going our way. Make sure you are giving your partner some room to share what they think or what they want.
21) Laugh Together
Put on a funny movie or a comedy special and laugh your butts off!
I always think it’s a good sign if you can remember the last time you and your partner had a good laugh.
Think back to those early days of your relationship.
Who doesn’t love a good walk down memory lane!
23) Play Your Song
I don’t know a couple that doesn’t have a song. Put that song on and make time for a 3-minute slow dance.
Or fast dance!
24) Play a Game
A little competition is good for a relationship!
Offer to do something your partner normally does.
I know it is important to ask for what we want and need in a relationship. But sometimes it is nice to not have to ask.
The other night my husband got home from work a little early and did something that made my day. He offered to take over ALL of the bedtime routine for our daughter.
Fellow moms know what a big deal this is!
Order a pizza, put a movie on and just enjoy a relaxing night free of talking.
Now, I am all about talking. I find it almost impossible to not talk (even with a movie on).
But I know that my husband is talking all day at work and sometimes a little quiet is all he needs and desperately wants.
This could be as small as picking up their favorite dessert, snack or beer. This could be telling your partner you rented a movie for yourself so he can go play his video game.
Beer and video games are the way to my husband’s heart!
28) Say “I Love You”
Take a few seconds to stop and look your partner in the eye when you say it.
29) Plan a Getaway
It doesn’t matter if you can get away next month or next year. Plan the getaway anyway!
30) Just Do Something
Have you ever read something that suggested things to do but you did absolutely none of those things?
Of course, you have. We do that all the time.
But taking action is the key to everything. You have to do something if you want things to change.
You don’t have to do the things on this list in any particular order. Heck, you don’t have to do all of them if you don’t want to.
Just make sure you are doing something.
There is nothing you can do to flip a switch and make your relationship perfect. Free of highs and lows.
Perfection is not in the cards.
But don’t forget to give your relationship the attention it deserves. This is the only way to build that kick butt relationship we all want and need!
Life can be a lot. And our relationships may be one of the first things to fall by the wayside.
There will always be bumps in the road. But it is up to us to ride out the bumps in style by doing things that are good for our relationship.
I come back to this list often. And I hope you do too.
