#37 Happy Couple: create your positive timeline
The idea is to remember together the shared positive moments.
Nurturing and enriching our closest affective relationships takes effort and consistency. The technique of the day is the "positive timeline of the relationship", an exercise that can be done together, with your lover, but also with a close friend. The idea is to remember together the shared positive moments. Draw a line that represents the history of the relationship, each one takes a pen of a different color and each partner will put a personal score to the selected positive events, yes, only positive events. From the day you met to vacations or other happy moments shared together, each partner will put a score on them from 0 to 10. Don't forget to include recent events, such as last week's dinner or party. Finally, also include moments from the future of your relationship that you anticipate enjoying. Share your evaluations with your partner, discuss them and finally imagine that this timeline belongs to another couple. What does it say about the relationship?
