Weird 30-Second Technique That Can Save Any Relationship

The way we are wired and the pressures we face every day make us tense and irritable most of the time. May it be from our jobs, from our dating lives (or the lack of it), or from dealing with friends and family. When a potentially negative situation arises, we tend to blow up when our threshold for pressure has been reached. This does a lot of damage to our partners, friends, and even family members. But, it’s not too late to correct this habit with a simple 30-second technique that can save any relationship we have.

Save Any Relationship By Setting Aside 30-Seconds To Do This Method

To avoid becoming an explosive volcano when our balance is threatened, we need to aim for a calm and rewarded state. It helps us appreciate what we have and enables us to keep our negative emotions in check. There is a weird 30-second technique that can help us achieve this state. With constant practice, it can save any relationship from breaking:

Breathe

So the first step is to breathe. Take in a lungful of air and exhale slowly. Breathing does two things. First, it creates an interruption to building up the tension and it allows the mind and body to pause before responding. Second, a physiological process occurs that helps us relax and actually changes how we feel about the situation. As the oxygen reaches our brain’s prefrontal cortex, our fight-flight-freeze response becomes regulated.

Label

After pausing to breathe, this is actually the quick part where you identify your emotion. Is it anger, frustration, disappointment, jealousy, or any of the negative emotions? Labeling is not useless. It actually gets the mind and body to do two very important processes. First, it signals our prefrontal cortex to think and engage in rational thoughts. Second, it allows us to externalize. This way, we can process what we are feeling and not act according to emotional cues.

Reappraise

Reappraising just means asking yourself some questions. It mostly zeroes in on three things: your learnings from the situation, the things you can be thankful for despite the situation, and if this situation will really matter years from now.

Situations that can anger us may happen every day, especially in romantic relationships and non-romantic ones. But this 30-second trick can save any relationship, even those marriages that are on the brink of divorce. That is because it helps you to respond rationally to situations instead of giving power emotional responses. For more tips on how to make a relationship healthier, read other posts on our blog.

Getting Through The Summer Season As An LDR Couple | Asian Date

Guide To Getting Through The Summer As An LDR Couple

Summer is here and everybody is gearing with their partners to hit the outdoors. But what about an LDR (long-distance relationship) couple? How do they go through summer when they are apart? It’s not going to be easy, but there are ways for an LDR couple to enjoy summer together despite the miles.

Stay In Love This Summer Despite Being An LDR Couple

Don’t be jealous of other couples just because they can enjoy the summer together – go out, go camping or swimming. In your own way, an LDR couple can enjoy the summer as well and stay even more in love with each other in the following ways:

1. Send letters and postcards.

While we already live in the digital age, a DM (direct message) with lots of emoticons is nothing compared to a hand-written letter. Try to mail each other at least once a week. You may also include postcards of the spots where you go. It will let your partner know that you are thinking of him or her while you are out.

2. Set up video chat dates.

Video chat dates would be the nearest thing to getting connected with your loved one from far away. It would be doubly trickier if you live in different time zones. So the best thing to do is to set up a date and time and honor it. If you can do it daily, so much the better. A scheduled chat date makes you both more relaxed. You are not in a hurry and you are not caught in a compromising situation.

3. Constantly wear a memento from your love.

If your lover has given you a trinket, wear it always to remind you of the person. Also, let your partner know that you are wearing that trinket always because it will warm the heart of the giver.

4. Agree to wear a couple’s shirt on the same day.

Even if you are far away from each other, nothing can stop you from doing synchronizing things that only the two of you know about. Wear a couple’s shirt and take photos. You may want to upload them on social media or you can just share it between yourselves. It doesn’t matter. After all, you are doing this for each other and not for others to see.

5. If possible, schedule a weekend together.

If you do not live too far away, you may want to schedule a long weekend together. It would still be great to be able to spend time together in real time, even just once during the summer.

An LDR couple will have to exert more effort to keep the flames of love burning. But with the right attitude, you can both make it. For more Asian Date tips, make sure to check the rest of our blog.

Relationship Killers That Have Been Right Below Our Noses | Asian Date

Relationship Killers That Have Been Right In Front Of Our Noses

There are so many things we overlook when it comes to factors that negatively affect our relationship or our dating life. Of course, we see the most blatant ones, like cheating or taking our partner for granted. But, what about the relationship killers that are not too obvious for us to notice?

These Are The Relationship Killers We Often Ignore

Honestly, there are plenty of relationship killers out there that many of us are guilty of doing or showing. As early as now, we need to identify what these are to ensure our relationship goes the distance. Here are some examples:

Lack Of Self-Awareness

We don’t really consider self-awareness to be an important factor in a relationship’s success. From the term itself, we think that this only affects our “self”. What we don’t realize is that we might become too insensitive because we are not in tune with our internal thinking. It’s also possible that we won’t be able to see the things that we have done wrong clearly because our perspective of ourselves is not in alignment with reality.

Lack Of Honesty And Communication

How many relationships have been destroyed because of the lack of communication and honesty? You might think that talking or speaking your mind is easy, but it isn’t. Both require a good amount of effort and bravery, especially during the tough times. Most choose not to talk about hard topics or choose to lie about them because it is easier.

Lack Of Empathy

Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. Just from the definition, it’s certainly a vital component of any relationship. How empathetic we are can dictate how connected we are with our partner. They must know that we understand then and that we know how they are feeling. The lack of empathy means that you are not seeing things in the eyes of your partner.

Do an honest review of your relationship right now. See if you or your partner has any of the relationship killers listed above. Once you spot it, it’s time for you to do something about it. For more posts that help improve relationships, make sure to check out the rest of our blog.

Gatsbying - The Newest Dating Trend To Pop Up | Asian Date

“Gatsbying” Is The Newest Dating Trend You Should Be Aware Of

In case you haven’t noticed yet, yes, the newest dating trend “gatsbying” is based on the main character from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel “The Great Gatsby”. It’s as rampant as taking a selfie on a random, boring afternoon. And everyone that has a social media account might have been guilty of it already.

Everything We Need To Know About “Gatsbying”

Before anything else, the story behind “The Great Gatsby”, in a nutshell, is that Jay Gatsby, a lowly soldier, rose to the top of society to win the affections of his one true love Daisy. Jay and Daisy met by chance at a party when they were younger. However, circumstances arose that split the would-be couple up.

After years of hard work and cunning means to procure properties and wealth, Jay Gatsby bought a mansion right across the lake from where Daisy lived. Every night, he would hold lavish parties in the hopes of seeing Daisy in one of them.

Basically, this is what gatsbying is – posting a photo that’s attention-worthy on social media in the hopes that your crush will take notice. You’re portraying yourself to be opulent so the person you’re interested in will say that you are somebody important.

Examples Of Gatsbying

The main idea is to catch your potential date’s attention and make them think that you are someone important or someone worthy of their attention. If the above explanation still isn’t clear, take the following examples to help you understand the dating trend better:

  • Posting a selfie of yourself in a fancy restaurant with the intention of catching your crush’s attention.
  • Posting a photo of yourself holding an expensive item.
  • Posting a picture of yourself with famous people.

Unfortunately, only the person posting the photo can say that he or she is gatsbying because it all boils down to the intention of the person. Could you be guilty of it yourself?
