If there’s one piece of relationship advice that we can offer that comes up missing in most marriages as time goes on, it’s passion.
We’re not just talking about what happens in the bedroom (although that’s important). It’s also what happens every moment of every day between the two of you.
Although your life might be very busy, you can make conscious choices now to create more passion and connection in your relationship.
With this in mind, here are 3 powerful ways to increase passion, love, and connection…
We invite you to try them out in your life!
1. Create a positive attitude about everyday life and make each other smile or laugh! In other words, lighten up. It’s very tempting to let life weigh us down and take the fun out of living in every moment.
You might say that you don’t have time for fun or that there isn’t anything fun in your life.
If that’s the case, then find something. Don’t live your life in hoping that tomorrow is more fun than today. Find something simple to have fun doing. Find something to laugh at with your partner. Find some activity (like playing in the snow or the leaves) that you used to do as a child–and then let yourself play.
2. Understand and accept that you are each other’s partner but still you’re still an individual with thoughts, feelings, ideas and views that might be different.
Find what excites you and gives you juice–not only as a couple but also as an individual.
One fear many people have (especially women) is that when they get in a relationship and start having a family, they will lose themselves and their identity. To not allow this to happen, make some time for self-care, along with caring for those you love.
Even if it’s taking a quiet bath by yourself or reading a book that you love, ask for your partner’s help so that you can have that time.
It’s a fact–when you are nourished, you have more to give.
3. Make time for one another.Even if you only have 5 minutes, let your partner know how much you care about them.
Just stopping what you’re doing to say a few words to your partner as one or both of you leave the house or come home can go a long way to rekindling the love that you may have thought you lost.
