Self-care and setting boundaries are essential. Both partners should have personal practices that support their individual mental health, which in turn benefits the relationship.
Signs include increased stress, anxiety, depression, or a persistent feeling of unhappiness that can be traced back to the relationship.
It's about recognizing when outside support is needed and when the relationship can provide the needed assistance. An open dialogue helps in making these decisions.
Explore shared activities, practice deep and empathetic listening, and consider couples therapy to bridge the emotional gap.
Rebuilding trust involves open communication, therapy, and a commitment to understanding the factors that led to the breach of trust in the first place.
Mindfulness and meditation can help partners become more present, reduce stress, and improve overall mental well-being. Couples can practice these together.
