It can be easy to get caught up in the busyness of wedding planning and life’s responsibilities. Many times, when people and couples get too busy and caught up with everything outside of the relationship, it can feel like there is something that is missing from the relationship.

Research shows that engaging in moments of gratitude can increase positive emotions throughout your day. When you can apply this same skill to your relationship, you are more likely to experience positive emotions about your partner and about your relationship.
A way to do this is by:
- Taking a moment to think about your partner (perhaps a fun and loving memory of them may help your brain focus).
- Thinking about what you are most grateful for when it comes to your partner.
- Notice the emotion that pops up for you as you do this.
This practice can be as short or as long, as you would like. The point is that you are taking a moment to experience a positive emotion related to your partner.
