important steps for cultivating healthier relationships

Have you ever wondered what makes your relationship work? Is there scientific evidence to show that honesty or commitment contributes positively to a relationship? Well, the truth is that there is a lot of scientific research on all this. What does commitment mean in real terms? It means that you and your partner will be able to weather any storm, stay for the long haul, and support each other no matter what. That is the authentic signature of a great team—a great team in which the relationship’s health comes before personal benefit.  Check out these important steps to a healthier relationship!

“Love is not blind – see more, not less. But as you see more, you choose to see less.”

Will Moss.

Faced with that question, many people would say that having illusions about your partner could lead you astray in the long term. But science has shown that this does not have to be true. Romantic Love is full of illusions that make you see an idealized version of your partner, but how healthy is this? A positive image is typical of the beginning of the relationship. Then time will begin to reveal your flaws, your bad habits, and other harmful things. Studies show that the more you know, the less likely you are to stay in Love. And in a way, this is true; look at the divorced who shudder when they think how they could have fallen in love with that person. But current research supports the idea that positive illusions help the relationship last. These couples fight less and are happier. 


Most relationships seem to work best when there is a degree of autonomy in the couple, and they feel they don’t have to act together all the time. There is no feeling of coercion in making decisions, and you can have the time and space you want to do what you want. Independence within a relationship is vital because it allows you to live a life that doesn’t rely on others. Instead, when the pair comes together, it is a union that feels warm and welcoming.

Physical contact is one beautiful way to bond or re-bond with your partner when things are difficult. Did you know that a hormone called oxytocin is released when we kiss, hug, or hold hands? Physical contact can only enhance our sense of well-being and is essential in building a healthy and happy relationship. It is a blessing. Studies show that there is a strong link between high-quality relationships and frequent physical contact. It could be worth looking into sex therapists if you feel this needs work.

Probably the most significant risk to a stable relationship is falling into a rut. The same activities each day can lead to monotony and may lead one partner to another path. Boredom can devastate relationships. The statistics, in this case, do not lie. Relationships are happier and more relaxed when we explore new things. Making simple changes can be the most effective.
