Explore New Activities Together 

At the beginning of any relationship, both partners are interested in spending time together and trying new things; however, as time goes on, there's a possibility for the urge to begin to dull.

Share your interests and try out the ones you will both enjoy.

When with your partner, paying more attention to your gadgets deprives you of enjoying the present with them. 

When with them, make conscious efforts to take time off using your devices, enjoy the moment with them and have fun together.

The time you take off technology enables you to be in your best state of mind while communicating with your partner. 

You will be able to think and share your thoughts with your partner because your mind is recharged and refreshed. 

It removes the stress of saying the wrong things or upsetting them.

Become Workout Partners

Prirotize Your Partner 

When one partner places more importance on hobbies or friends over quality time with the other, they may begin to experience a lack of connection, trust, and intimacy in their relationship. 

It is essential to spend quality time with your partner by prioritizing them.

Humans have time for whatever they make a priority. 

When your partner comes first, they have an importance in your life which lets you focus on their wants and needs alongside yours. 

Making each other utmost priority improves teamwork and mutual understanding in your relationship.

Likewise, you can prioritize your partner by involving them in your decision-making process. 

Involving them should not be seen as asking for permission; instead, it is simply placing a high value on your partner's opinion.

Similarly, you could create goals to achieve with your partner. 

Have a monthly mission to accomplish with your partner.

Sharing goals builds your teamwork and allows you to grow together.

Go On a Romantic Trip 

A trip for a day or two can help you rekindle the romance and connection in your relationship. 

Scheduling a romantic trip with your partner keeps your relationship fresh and lively and allows you to spend quality time with your partner.

A romantic trip with your partner does not have to be elaborate or detailed. 

Have fun planning the location and spots to visit during your trip so you don't get too engrossed in details and miss out on the point of the trip. 

The planning stage is where all the fun should begin.

Going on a romantic trip sets you free from all distractions and the roles you play at home.

You get to enjoy your privacy from work, house responsibilities, and extended family. 

It also helps you focus on your partner and dwell on your happy moments.

Being together in a beautiful place away from stress increases intimacy and improves your sex life, thus leading to happiness and satisfaction in the relationship.

However, you should realize that spending quality time with your partner is a stepping stone to a happier and healthy relationship.

You can spend quality time with your partner by exploring new activities together, scheduling a gadget-free time, becoming workout partners, prioritizing your partner, and going on a romantic trip with them.
