Now's the time to pull out those old dancing shoes from the cupboard, hit the local pool or tune up that dusty guitar.
Immerse yourself in an activity that left your mum screaming that dinner was on the table!
Very often, we tend to side-step a series of red flags in a relationship out of a strong desire for it to work out.Remember that developing a good habit is as infectious as starting a bad one and it won't be long before you simply can't go without that HIIT or yoga session in your day. Did you dance ballet, play the drums in your parent's basement or attend swim school?Moving your body releases oxytocin ('the love hormone') which is a hormone released during sex or moments of extreme joy, so exercise is the gateway to living a happier and healthier life. Whatever it was, now is a great time to revisit those activities.We bypass all those annoying traits and label them as insignificant because our newly found partner makes us feel so good.The problem here is that our commitment to the relationship is much stronger than our commitment towards our truth.It's time to sit down and have a chat with the vampire inside you. Do you really want a boyfriend who bakes himself to sleep every night after work?Ask yourself: what do you want to see unfold in your life? Do you really want a girlfriend who can't stand you spending some quality time with your best friends?The key to a successful relationship is compatibility before commitment, and before you get very clear about what it is that you desire in your next relationship, you are likely to fall into the same pattern of your past failed ones.Can you trust that there is a purpose to all these traumatic events in your life?The longer you hold in your emotions the longer they will stick around...just like that annoying drunk guest who won't leave the party after it's over.
