We all know those couples, who after years of being together still can’t seem to get enough of each other. Here are 8 habits of happy couples that you can use to improve your own relationship.

1. Focus More on What Your Partner Does Right Than What They Do Wrong

Research on perception and attention has shown that we see more of what we are looking for. So if you are always looking for what your partner does wrong you will probably find it. The same is true if you are always looking for things that your partner does right. Look for signs of kindness and that will be more likely to stand out to you. It all depends on what you want to look for. Choose to accentuate the positive rather than the negative.
