Go to sleep at the same time: Simple things like reading a book in bed, or browsing the net from your phone or even completing that presentation can play havoc. Ensure that you finish all your work (including mobile time) half an hour before you go to bed and fall asleep together.

Keep common interests alive: It’s easy to get caught up with the everyday routine but make sure you set some time aside to do things that you both enjoy.

Hold hands: When was the last time you went for a walk holding hands? We are always occupied with our mobiles, updating everyone else about the walk, rather than enjoying the moment. Hold hands, walk side by side and have a conversation about anything.

Trust and forgive easily: Don’t abandon logic and self respect but trust a little easily and forgive a bit more than you usually do. After all, it will only make your relationship stronger.

Focus on the positives: We all have faults but the best part is that they can be ignored. Instead of focusing on what your partner lacks, look at the positives.

More hugs and kisses: Give him a hug before he leaves for work and give him a kiss when he least expects it. These small touches can do wonders for your relationship.

Eat together: Have at least one meal together every day. Turn off the TV and have a real conversation instead.

Never go to sleep angry: It might not be possible to solve every argument but give it time. A good night’s sleep can do wonders so make sure you don’t hold on to the argument and go to bed angry.

Focus on the small things: Celebrate the little things in life instead of constantly expecting more. After all, it is the small things that truly matter.

Have a sense of humour: Life is not always ideal or fair. Be ready to laugh at setbacks instead of assigning blame or being angry.

Share your feelings: Don’t just assume that the other person knows that you love them. Say it. Send a lovely message or leave a sweet post-it note around the house to let him know that he is special.

Check on each other: Call him up once in a day (don’t go overboard) to ask how his day is shaping up. Make evening plans or just simply have a quick conversation.

Step into each other’s shoes: Give up the habit of always being right and try to understand where your partner is coming from before you react.

Find time to reconnect: Schedule date nights, leave the kids with a family member or helper and spend time only with each other.

Break routine: Once every while, do something totally different. Break the old rules and go a little crazy. This tiny element of surprise will help keep that spark alive.
