If you feel as though your relationship has lost all of its fun, then it’s time to affirm some things to yourself that will help you develop relationship habits for having more fun. Habits are what will make or break your relationship. Your relationship habits determine how happy you are in the relationship and whether or not you will last or break up in the future. They are extremely important to your relationship’s health, so let’s talk about some affirmations that will help you develop better relationship habits.
Repeat These Affirmations Until Fun Relationship Habits Are Formed
1. I Make Time For Date Night
Date night is crucial to my relationship? We LOVE it because it keeps our connection strong and gives us an opportunity to have fun together.
Whether you choose to have your date in the morning, afternoon, or evening, a date (with just the two of you) is a chance to reconnect and enjoy each other’s company. In other words, have more fun.
According to a report done at the University of Virginia, when you spend at least one day a week together, you are more likely to be intimate with each other. That tells me that date night is a great way to increase the fun and connection you feel, which is why it should be a relationship habit for every couple.
I speak from experience. Date night always leaves me feeling more connected and increases our intimacy.
Not Sure What To Do For Date Night?
Has it been so long that you don’t know what you should do for date night? Here’s a powerful suggestion: Go somewhere that you share memories together.
For example, if you met at school, go to that school and have a picnic. Or, if your first date was at a Mexican restaurant, then go there. When you relive memories that brought you joy, you will instantly feel more joy at the moment.
You Can Also Do Something That THEY Enjoy
After a while, you can stop doing things your partner enjoys without hurting their feelings. But it’s important to remember that what they enjoy is fun for them. Therefore, doing it with them is a great way to help them have fun with you. So, if they enjoy going to concerts, then get some tickets and go with them. Their fun will rub off on you if you are open to it, and it’s going to be a great experience for you both.
And Don’t Forget Adrenaline Activities
Adrenaline increases when you are first dating, and that causes serotonin and dopamine to be released, which makes being with someone much more fun. If you want to feel that feeling again, you can create adrenaline through adrenaline producing activities.
No, you don’t need to go bungee jumping, but you do need to get your heart pumping. Do something that scares you, and you are guaranteed to get that adrenaline going.
A relationship can become quite boring and stale after a while. Routine sets in and you do the same things over and over again. But, by adding in new experiences, you can help yourself shake out of the routine and have more fun.
Traveling is probably one of the best ways to have new experiences together and create more fun in the relationship. Experiencing new tastes, sights, sounds, and activities together is a great way to have fun and boost the connection in the relationship.
The great thing is that you don’t have to get on a plane to experience the benefits. A drive into the country can be a trip that offers new experiences and fun. It’s just a matter of getting away from where you normally spend your time.
That said, new experiences don’t have to be had outside of your home. You can do things you’ve never done in the home – renovate, play games, watch new movies, cook new foods, etc. The possibilities are endless, so aim to try something new as often as you can.
The more you repeat this affirmation, the more you will consciously look for ways to have new experiences with your partner – it will become a habit, and that’s going to create a whole lot of fun.
3. I Laugh With My Partner Often
I’m willing to bet that you were attracted to your partner because of their laughter, in part. It’s fun to be with someone who knows how to laugh and have a good time. It’s a playful trait and it promotes good, happy, and fun relationships.
How Can You Laugh More?
If you have a hard time making your partner laugh – or they have a hard time making you laugh, then you may not be feeling this affirmation. I get it. Sometimes the humor has left the relationship and there doesn’t feel like there is anything to laugh about. That’s when you need to search for outside influences that can make you both laugh and experience the benefits of laughter.
For instance, going to a live comedy show can be a great way to have a date night, new experience, and laugh together. It fulfills all three of these habits that build more fun in the relationship.
A funny movie also works well.
And, it’s always important to find humor in situations. When you can spot the thing that’s funny about a situation, you can laugh easier. And if your partner can see it as well, then you can laugh together more.
When you repeat this affirmation over and over again, you are going to find yourself looking for ways to laugh with your partner more. That is going to have a big impact on your happiness and the happiness of your relationship.
