Getting grateful enough to appreciate your partner in the ways they like will have you learning to look for positives in no time.
When you already know that praising them results in them feeling good and doing more good, you will get used to looking for the positive thing in all their actions to repeat the appreciation process.
As you get used to seeing positives, you will learn that it helps with stress relief.
Given that your ability to see the silver lining in every situation will translate into other aspects of life besides your marriage, you will be able to maneuver around difficulties instead of getting stressed over them.
Similarly, your positive thinking will help you with improved wellness and a stronger immune system.
This can happen because your regularly happy state will ensure your body's chemicals are in optimal condition.
You will also be in a great mental space to exercise and eat healthily.
Equally, you can also build your mental resilience with the positive thinking you have created from seeing the good in your partner.
Whenever you are in any form of life struggle, your optimism will help you react to it positively and figure out a solution.
Being nice to other people generally makes us feel good about ourselves for being great people that can make others happy.
So, when you appreciate your partner and they feel good, you are also likely to feel great because you made them happy.
Your personal happiness may stem from a contagious form of joy, which occurs because of the proximity to a happy person.
If your partner is happy beside you and you are not feeling any negative emotions, you are likely to be infected by their happiness and feel happy.
You may also feel good because you know deep within you that your praises will lead to more connection between both of you.
Compliments are an excellent way to cement your presence in your partner's life, and you will continue getting closer the more you praise them.
Also, we generally think of ourselves as nice people; thus, when we get the chance to be recognized as kind people, it will trigger a sense of fulfillment.
When you feel good after appreciating your partner, it may be due to the validation of your "nice person" status.
The principle of reciprocity is central in almost every facet of marriage. This is expected because marriage takes two to tango.
Therefore, it's equally likely that when you appreciate your partner for their good deeds, they will also appreciate you when you do some good deeds.
The reciprocity is excellent because it will let the relationship move stronger and get more solid.
In a relationship without reciprocity, you may build resentment toward your partner if they don't appreciate your efforts.
You may start to believe that your efforts are never good enough for them.
Also, reciprocity is excellent because it shows that both of you care about your marriage, and it's not just you who desires a blissful marriage.
When you praise them for their effort in the morning and they consciously praise you in return, even when your effort is small, you'll know they care about you.
If you notice that they aren't reciprocating your appreciation despite doing more good deeds, you can begin a conversation about it.
They are likely not doing it with a bad intention.
You bringing it up will let them realize and change to be better.
Understanding a person's needs can open up new ways of making efforts in the relationship. When you appreciate your partner, your appreciation will be made for certain acts, enabling them to know your likes and how to satisfy you.
There will be a greater connection in your marriage since they understand what you like and relate to your interests.
For example, if you appreciate them for working out with you, they will realize its importance to you and may build up a liking for exercise to connect better with you.
Also, there are likely to be fewer problems when they understand what you like.
Since they know your needs, they won't deviate and do things you don't like.
With your needs evident to them, there will be increased communication in the marriage since they can easily talk to you better.
For example, a partner you appreciate for saving a movie will understand you like such films, resulting in further communication over related topics.
Sometimes, people may stop appreciating their companions because they take their efforts for granted.
However, when you read through the benefits of appreciating them, you realize that you should appreciate your partner more.
These benefits include making both of you feel good, training you to look for positives, making them reciprocate, and letting them realize what you like.
