Dr. John Gottman says, “Successful long-term relationships are created through small words, small gestures, and small acts.”

The important moments, the ones that strengthen relationships, often happen in small ways.  Reaching out to your partner, leaning into their bids for affection especially during conflict, showing affection, recognizing the things that they do that enhance your life, and taking time to laugh together, are some examples of small ways that you can show your partner you care every day.
