Here are five small ways to celebrate your relationship today (or any day of the year), because your relationship is worth a little extra effort today.
3. Share your gratitude: Take a quick moment to share with your partner what you appreciate about them. Start with, “I appreciate you for…”
“Research shows that people who hear frequent appreciations feel better about themselves, produce more, and serve more.
Feeling appreciated is important to healthy relationships and work teams. It’s also important to one’s sense of being valued. Whenever you share an appreciation with another, their brain hears the appreciation and releases dopamine. Dopamine is a neurochemical that, when released, produces a feeling of pleasure. How many “dopamine shots” do you give your employees, colleagues, spouses, and children each day? May we begin to value not just being appreciated, but appreciating.” – Dr. Mark Richards, PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator and Trainer.
