Your romantic relationship and your health go hand in hand, and I am so excited to share about this topic!
First off, I should clarify that I am not a relationships coach or certified to give relationship advice in any way. What I am sharing is solely based on my own research from qualified individuals and my own personal experiences.
Also, don’t worry… your partner doesn’t have to be on board with any of this or participate in any way. These tips are about YOU and what you can do for yourself, which inevitably benefits your relationship and your health. It has NOTHING to do with manipulating your other half or playing games. You’ll be wayyyyyy too busy focusing on yourself to conspire against anyone!!!

Strengthening your romantic relationship will help you become healthier. How so? Your relationship is likely one of your biggest curveballs. Arguments, resentment and lack of support can all throw you off your healthy A-game and make you indulge in your unhealthy habits as a coping mechanism.
I’m here to tell you, you don’t have to choose between your relationship and your health!
There are a lot of parallels between your romantic relationship and your relationship with your health. These are my top 3 tips for improving both of these important aspects of your life.
Improve your communication
This is classic and well-known relationship advice. If I were to ask you what does your communication with your partner look like, what would you say? The best thing you can do to improve your communication is to listen more.
If I were to ask you what does your communication look like with your health, what would you say? Yes, health talks! In the form of symptoms… and the same advice applies here. You want to listen to your symptoms just like you listen to your partner.
Ask questions, be curious. This is key to getting the relationship and level of health you desire.
Stop controlling and obsessing
This is a big one.
Most of us go into relationships with expectations and we do the same with health. We want our partners to act a certain way; we want our health to happen in accordance with our expectations. We do this because we feel better once our expectations are met. But this is also where we fall into the trap.
When we let go of our expectations, we eliminate the disappointment we feel when things don’t go our way. That’s not to say we tolerate getting treated badly or suffering through unbearable symptoms.
But we can take responsibility for our own happiness, and let our relationship and health be the cherry on top.
Focus on the experience
Lastly, pay attention to how your romantic relationship and your health feels. What is the vibe?
When you feel good, your partner will feel that and you’ll notice shifts. Also when you feel good, taking care of your health becomes so much easier and shifts also happen there.
Look, I know you won’t always feel good and that is not the goal. But you do want to recognize these moments and address them so you can keep focusing on the positive experiences on your relationship and health journey.
I guarantee you, if you follow this advice, you will see a difference. And it can happen FAST!!!
So remember these 3 romantic relationship tips for better health:
- Improve your communication
- Stop controlling and obsessing
- Focus on the experience
