It’s not about spending all day with each other but its about QUALITY time with your better half.
Here’s a list accumulated from psychologists to give you the best tips for a happy relationship!
1. TURN YOUR PHONES OFF!
It’s been found in studies that using your phone for social media, means you can become addicted and the dependency suppresses the release of oxytocin in your body. This is the very hormone that is responsible for emotional intimacy and bonding. Carol Carey, a psychotherapist says the best thing to do is switch the phones off!
2. Don’t bring up work!
