Emma (35): "Sinds enkele maanden heb ik een nieuwe bazin. Eerlijk: ze doet haar werk écht niet goed. Bovendien gaat ze bij het management met de pluimen lopen als  wij voorstellen doen, en wijst ze naar ons als er dingen foutlopen. Het verziekt niet alleen de sfeer, maar is ook nefast voor het bedrijf. Wat kan ik doen?"

Tips to improve your relationship

  • Build “couple’s time” into your schedule. For most couples, the key to improving your relationship is to make it a priority to spend more time together
  • Whatever you do, make sure you have time to really talk during your special time together.
  • Learn to say no to others and your smart-phone during ‘date-night. Create a relaxed atmosphere by dimming the lights or go for a walk in nature.
  • Create moments of connection during every day. A gesture, a wink and a smile. Scientific research says that it is the small, positive moments that matter in keeping relationships satisfied.
  • Be honest with each other. To keep your relationship strong, be open and honest about your feelings. Then you’re really communicating.
  • Find new interest to pursue together. Doing something completely new will bring you closer together: a cooking workshop, a class together or training for a run.
  • If your partner is unsympathetic with you in a testing time, such as being fired at work or after a death in the family, then consider that it maybe not be him or her, but the situation that produces those words. Differentiating contextual behaviour from personal behaviour is an art that can help create healthy, lifelong relationships.
