Usually during the holidays people make the same mistake — overeat with delicious food. After the holidays, everyone feels relaxed, but with a few pounds heavier. This is the right moment to go after an effective diet. People want to regain their old form in which they feel best with the help of certain restrictions. The same tactics should be applied in relationships. All partners in most lasting relationships are trapped in routine and bad habits, accumulating “more weight.” In this case, it’s time for a love diet.
The love diet is actually very simple. You must understand what damages your relationship and try your best to remove it – the same as the harmful foods. There is no need to lecture your partner and make some restrictions on what he/she can do or can’t do. Everything is in your hands. When you stay away from the conflict zones, then the beneficial changes won’t late for sure.
Here are the basic rules of love diet:
1. Do not put blame
Do not blame your partner for everything and try to understand your loved one’s thoughts and actions. The guilt that you are trying to attribute your partner will kill the intimacy and passion in your relationship. Distinguish between guilt and responsibility. You have to think about both of you in every situation, and not just for your personal satisfaction.
2. Be honest
You are probably not fully honest as much as you think. Most likely you often remain silent about what happens or what you feel or think at a time. Remember, you should be equally honest with yourself and with your partner to make one relationship really healthy and successful.
3. Be grateful
Your love diet will not be effective without sincere appreciation. Instead of focusing on the shortcomings of your partner and what he or she failed to do for you, consider all the things that you should be thankful to. Express your gratitude and do not forget the word “thank you.” Often, many partners begin to believe that you are obligated to each other and just stop to appreciate the efforts made by both of them
4. Make compliments
All compliments take almost no time or effort, and bring real happiness. Spend a few minutes daily to say a nice word to your partner. It doesn’t matter whether the compliments are related to the physical attributes or personal characteristics of your partner. Use words like “I love the way…” or “I always smile when I think of your …”. Kind words produce good feelings.
The love diet is a pretty effective method if you want to improve your relationship and keep the passion. The mutual compromise is something that really works and you should never forget it. Respect your partner and make sure to be honest person. It’s the only way to make your relationship eternal.
