If life were perfect all the time, then how would we appreciate it? The simple fact is that people need the bad, so they can appreciate the good. That doesn’t mean however, that it’s fair for people to take their bad times out on those around them and unfortunately in a marriage, the closest person us usually their spouse. If you are suffering from a grumpy wife, then there are things you can do to help calm the situation, or rather things she can do, with your gentle persuasion.
1. Appreciate life more
Your wife might have a lot of stress in her life or a lot to be down about, but that doesn’t mean that it’s all bad. If your wife has been down for a while or you can’t remember the last time that you saw her smile, then remind her about all the good things that she has in her life. Sometimes people forget to look for the light when they have been hit by a lot dark and, as her husband you have the ability to change that.
2. Take some time out
It seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day anymore. Thanks to the introduction of smart phones and computers, we are connected in a way that has never been known before, and because of that, we don’t know how to just stop, anymore. If your wife is being grumpy with you, then it’s probably because modern life is stressing her out and she needs to take a little time out, just to calm down and reflect on life.
3. Talk about it
Sometimes a problem shared is a problem halved and your wife might need someone to talk to. If your wife is being grumpy then there is obviously something bothering her and rather than becoming frustrated by her actions, you could always ask her what the matter is. The likelihood is that once your wife has shared her problem with you, she will stop taking it out on you.
4. Feel loved
If your wife has something troubling her and it is making her act grumpily, then make sure that she feels loved. If your wife is feeling insecure about something, then it can help a great deal to make her feel, as though you have her back. If you want your wife to be happy, then you need to make sure that she feels, as though you love her.
5. Work out
Sometimes we need to just get out and stretch our legs and the inability to do so, can actually make us grumpy and unsociable. If your wife hasn’t been out in a while or she has had a lot of work on recently, then suggest going out running together or another physical activity, which you can both do together. Exercise releases endorphin in the brain, which naturally lift our moods and make us feel better, so it will help to ease your wife’s grumpiness.
6. Hit the sheets
Exercise releases endorphin, which lift your mood and make you, feel good about yourself. Hitting the sheets can do this tenfold. If your wife is feeling grumpy, then making her feel confident about herself can do wonders. Hitting the sheets with your wife can help to establish the emotion bond, which you both share and can, put the solidarity back between you both. If your wife has been taking her grumpiness out on you, then this can really help to put a stopper to that, even if it doesn’t solve the actual problem.
7. Eat some chocolate
Chocolate is filled with feel guide nutrients, which can naturally elevate the eater’s mood. If your wife is being grumpy and you just don’t know what else to do, then buy her some chocolate and her favorite film and let it do the work for you. Not only will the time relax her, as she is doing something, which she enjoys, but the chocolate will be helping to elevate her mood from the inside out.
8. Address the issue
Sometimes women can hold onto problems rather than addressing them. The problem with that is there isn’t any resolution to the problem in question, which can lead to long periods of grumpiness with seemingly no end. If you want your wife to stop being grumpy, then you need to get her to address whatever it is that is making her grumpy in the first place. You need to explain to her that it isn’t fair for you to suffer because she can’t face up to what is bothering her, but in a supportive and respectful way, which helps her to understand what it is, that she is doing to you.
We can’t all be happy, all of the time and sometimes we get grumpy. When we are married can be easy to take that grumpiness out on our spouses, because they are the closest people to us and they have promised to love us for better and for worse, but that doesn’t mean that it’s fair.
Luckily there are many ways in which we can release stress and sometimes we just need to be reminded about these things. If you wife is being grump with you or just grumpy about life in general, then remind her about all the good things that she has in her life. Support her through her problems and if you can, then help her face them and find a resolution.
You should always be honest with your wife about how you feel and if her grumpiness is affecting you, then you need to discuss this with her. It’s wise to remember though that you need to raise issues such as these in a respectful way, which works towards a solution and not an argument. If your wife feels supported by you, then she should allow you to help her work her way out of the grumpiness she is currently feeling.
