If you're fully present and aware of how your partner is reacting to your words, you'll be more able to facilitate good communication.

4. When you’re doing an activity like walking, designate part of the time to be in silence together, simply aware of sights and sounds.

As you both take in your surroundings, you'll be more able to speak honestly and openly.

6. Respond rather than react in the angry, fearful moments.

And when the bad stuff comes, don't let your anger explode — instead, take a deep breath and respond thoughtfully.

7. Approach your partner with curiosity so that you can continue to get to know him or her.

You'll find that no matter how long you've been together, there is always more to discover.
