With kids, work and obligations it can feel like you're emotionally a million miles away from your partner. But, there are great tricks to reconnect you can try right now, and really do work!
No matter what kind of relationships you are in, the small things seem to matter the most. True, what works for some may not work for others, but we can all agree that little gestures like loves notes and sweet smooches make most women feel more loved and appreciated.
And with that, here are a few easy ideas to make your loved one feel special, loved and not taken for granted. Reconnect with the one you love by making them a priority, in some way or another, every single day.
No More Electronics
Unless you are waiting to here back on a life threatening emergency, put the phone away. There is no need to have it at the table, period. Look up, make eye contact, and enjoy an adult conversation with your partner.
Yep, kissing helps connect you not only physically, but emotionally. So, pucker up and enjoy a nice long high school make out sesh with your hubby. No bleachers required.
Snuggling up floods your body and mind with endorphins, making you and your partner feel closer and more in love than ever before. Even just a few minutes a night, grab a blanket, put the kiddos to bed and watch the evening news in each others arms.
Take A Stroll Down Memory Lane
Remembering funny stories and laughable moments together will bring you right back into the moment it happened. Also, it shows your partner vulnerability, leaving your heart and soul wide open.
Compliment Each Other
Giving each others compliments every day is a wonderful way to show the person you love that you are noticing them. It also opens up the door to communication and connecting.
Write Love Notes
Who doesn't love to find a sweet little note under their pillow? It's like getting the good kind of mail, but from the person you love, and without having to go to the post office! Nothing is sweeter and more appreciated than a hand written love note. Not only is it crazy romantic, it's proof you can keep and look back on whenever you need a little reminder.
Working out releases endorphins and makes you happy. So, be happy together. Get your heart pumping and your blood flowing with a morning sweat session and enjoy one another company in a whole new way.
Make A Meal
Whether you are cooking a five course meal, taking a class, or baking cookies in your jammies, cooking together creates a team atmosphere and pretty much forces you to work together. Have fun and get dirty, it will be fun I promise!
Enjoy Alone Time
Yes, you read that correctly. Become a closer couple by enjoying time apart. No one should rely on their partner for entertainment, and when you are constantly bored together, it can create resentment. So, find a new hobby and enjoy it all by your self.
Throw some tennis shoes on and go for a walk. Rent some paddle boards and laugh at each other all afternoon. The point is, you need to get out there and breathe in the fresh air while the sun beats down on your cheeks. P.S. Wear sunscreen.
Read The Same Book
One easy way to have great conversation, is to read the same book. There will be endless ideas to share, points of view to discuss, and plot twists to debate together. Bonus, this new intellectual bond often leads to a physical one as well.
Every relationship needs a little TLC sometimes. So, even if you don't feel disconnected from your partner, and everything is still quite comfortably in the "honeymoon phase," it's still very important to nurture that connection and not take it for granted.
