Car number plate

By Anjula Mutanda, author of How to do Relationships

Every year we get a reminder to take our cars in for an MOT to ensure that they’re roadworthy.

But what about our relationships? Do we need a reminder to check in with our partners, or should we just carry on until the wing mirrors fall off, and we can no longer see the relationship hazards coming our way? 

Giving your relationship a regular tune-up can be an effective way to focus you on relationship niggles and nip them in the bud before they become major problems. It can help you to identify any underlying feelings that may be bubbling away, and take positive steps to work through them. It can also help to focus your mind on what’s going well.

The good news is that there are simple steps you can take to get your relationship back on the road.
