As a relationship ages, we sometimes take the things we love about our partners for granted. Practicing gratitude is a great way to show your partner that you appreciate them, while improving the quality of your relationship.
The Relationship Gratitude Tips worksheet includes a list of ideas to help couples show gratitude in their relationships. We suggest using this worksheet alongside a concrete plan to begin implementing the advice, such as challenging clients to consciously try at least one tip every day.
