She says now is the time to go back to treating your partner how you did at the beginning of the relationship, which probably includes acting more thoughtful, listening more, and being more present. Dr. Glied healthy relationship hacks include:

Arguing is not always a bad thing: She says if a fight resolves conflict it can be beneficial, but problems arise when partners are not listening to each other

Be willing to compromise: She says instead of focusing on what you might be losing with a compromise, you need to be mindful of what you are gaining

You can't change other people: Dr. Glied explains despite what we may not like in others, the only thing we have control over is our action and choice and she says it is better to accept that your partner might not change their ways

Focus on the pros of the relationship: She notes any relationship or partner has pros and cons and your relationship will flourish if you remind yourself why you are in the relationship in the first place
