8 Small But Impactful Ways To Show You Appreciate Your Partner
1. Thank your partner every day for something.
This can be anything little, like thanking them for remembering to do a chore. Or it can be a much bigger thank you, like for choosing to spend their life with you. While it may seem like nothing, it is a good habit to get into and they while appreciate the thanks and feel valued.
2. Never belittle or put your spouse down.
Words can be extremely powerful tools. When used for good they can lift you up and make you feel on top of the world. However harsh words are “like feathers released in a harsh wind, once said; we will never get them back.” Never put your spouse down as you may never be able to lift them up again no matter how much you say “sorry”. This is especially important for when you are in front of others, do not bring them down in front of any company. You should have each others backs not drag each other down.
3. Pay attention and listen to your spouse when having a conversation.
This may seem obvious but with today’s distractions like mobiles ect it is more important than ever to have someone’s undivided attention. Also rather than just hearing what they are saying actually listen. Communication is key! This will help to know how your spouse is actually feeling/thinking. Don’t be quick to answer back listen and learn.
4. Compliment each other on your appearance.
Obviously beauty is only skin deep. But it is nice to be complimented once in a while. And while you may think they know you love them for them it doesn’t hurt to reinstall this. Even if it is just to say they look good in the outfit they have on that day. Or you love their hair/eyes/smile.
5. Let your spouse know the important role they play in your life and successes.
It is easy to get swept up in daily life and just do what you do day in day out without any thanks. This is why it is important to tell your spouse how important they are. Gratitude goes a long way and is very similar to the thank you. Nobody wants to feel undervalued. Even if that is just to say without them you may not be able to achieve x, y and z.
6. When your spouse is tired from a hectic day, perform their house roles.
In modern households all the roles are interchangeable. If one spouse is tired then you can offer to help out. If they were supposed to wash the dishes, offer to do it for them.
7. Let go of the small stuff, habits, or preferences that will not make or break your marriage.
Focus on all the things they do right. It is easy to get engrossed in someone’s worst habits while forgetting all their good qualities. Is the fact they leave their dirty socks on the floor really a marriage breaker? While they might be the most loving and tentative person. Let it go and be lenient. We are human we all have flaws!
8. Let your spouse know how much you love them by speaking their love langauge.
Our “love language” describes how we receive love from others. These are five things: Words of Affirmation,Acts of Service,Receiving Gifts,Quality Time and Physical Touch. Each of us is different so it is important to know which one your spouse is so you can better understand them.
