  • Remembering why you chose your partner and the importance of reconnecting.
  • Do positive self-talk and create a gratitude list about your partner.
  • Work on understanding recurring patterns so you can change them.
  • Have "micro-dialogues".
  • Understanding each other's "conversation battery".
