Practicing gratitude is a very powerful yet underestimated tool that increases quality of life and satisfaction. Though practiced individually gratitude can also be helpful in improving a relationship. Often we get focused on what doesn’t work or what we don’t have in life and in our relationships. Being in a state of gratitude brings attention to the present moment and thus helps dispel thoughts of regret (past) and fear (future)
A gratitude mind set focuses on appreciation of what works with our partner and can often trigger positive change.
In between tasks throughout the day think about what is good in your that present moment about your partner and enjoy the warm and hopeful feeling that comes. Some websites for gratitude practice in a community are http://www.gratitudelog.com/
