- What is my age:
If you walk with your spouse or partner on a regular basis, you might want to speed up. Or tell them to. A new study by Purdue University nursing, health and kinesiology, and human development and family studies researchers shows that couples often decreased their speed when walking together. Speed further decreased if they were holding hands. The study looked at walking times and gait speeds of individuals from 72 couples. The participants ranged from age and were in numerous settings, including clear or obstacle-filled pathways, walking together, walking together holding hands and walking individually.

Or both. At some point in the process of trying to change your relationship, things will be slow and it will be frustrating.
I can guarantee this. When change feels slow in your relationship, this is the time to take stock of all the small changes that have actually happened.
Instead of discounting small changes as not enough, try to value any shift that you see in yourself, your partner or your relationship. Small changes are actually how big changes happen.
