Knocking off a task for a partner can be serious help, especially during busy seasons of life. What can you help them with that will ease some stress?

8. Learn to Listen
This is a big one! We live in an age where listening is seriously hard sometimes. Did you know that the average attention-span is 7 seconds?! Learning to actually listen to your partner will do wonders for your relationship.
9. remind them how sexy they are
I get it! Sometimes, we forget to tell our partners how much we like to look at them. Its superficial and crazy but we are all just humans and we like to hear that our partners think we are good looking! Take some time today to tell your partner how much you love their butt!
10. Go for a walk
So understated but so powerful! Going for a walk is free and can be a great way to re-connect. Leave your phones at home and talk about your day or new things going on in your life. Nature is so healing!
11. Gift them a book of reasons why
We tell our partners everyday that we love them. But sometimes the reason why can be lost! It is so nice to hear or read these sentiments! I gifted this book to my partner and it is still sitting right in front of his work-space for him to see everyday!
12. Be honest with them
It's not always sunshine and rainbows and that's ok! Love is meant to be messy, but only if we communicate about it. Don't forget to share how you're feeling with your partner, they will always appreciate this in the long run.
13. Go for a dream drive
I got this idea from my dear friend Candace Primm, this is her and her fiance. Yep, that's right, they're totally getting married in May! she's an awesome wedding planner, check her out here!
