It’s not easy being in a distant relationship, and having to wait for a long time to see that special someone in your life can really be difficult.
Long distance relationships provide a test for your love and it’s also an important time to work on your individual lives, in spite of the fact that you miss each other.
These survival tips would help you and your partner.
1. KEEP IN TOUCH
Communicating with each other in spite of the distance is the only way you can bond with your partner in a distant relationship. Communication is all that you got and it’s the soul of the relationship — never joke with it.
2. TELL EACH OTHER EVERYTHING
At a time when you miss your partner so much, you would really need someone to talk to. Find a buddy in your partner; talk about everything, laugh on the phone together, discuss what’s going on in both your lives and be each other’s support system. This would go a long way.
3. BE THERE FOR YOUR KIDS
If you have kids, your kids would also miss the parent that’s away, meaning you have a bigger role to play. Don’t complain and grumble; just show them love and support, and be there for them.
4. CREATE TIME TO REST
You might be busy with your life, work, chores and the kids. But you should also create time each day to rest. This would really help fight off stress and depression.
5. CREATE TIME TO MEDITATE
Create 10 to 15 minutes each day when the house is quiet to observe some peace and quiet; you wouldn’t believe how much meditation would really help you.
6. DO THINGS YOU LOVE
Follow your passion, do things you love and just have fun. Time would move so fast when you do this.
7. SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Spend time with people who matter to you; they would provide a strong support group for you at this time.
8. WORK ON YOURSELF
When away from your spouse is a good time to work on yourself; develop yourself in your given career, improve certain aspects of your life and work on your flaws; think of those things you do wrong when your partner is around and try to be better.
These eight tips would help better yourself and your relationship with your partner in spite of the distance.
