The rekindling of young love after many years apart is the key to long-lasting wedded bliss and relationships. However, as we grow in our relationship, sometimes the butterflies and the sweaty palms seem to give way for new yet love-draining attitudes.
The daily hustle and flow of our busy lives constantly pulling at us, it can feel like a challenge to connect with the ones we love the most—including planning a formal date night, which can often be the first thing we put off. Here are few ways to ensure your love and intimacy candle keeps burning:
Share Real Love Letters
Emails and emoji-filled texts are cute, but when was the last time you whipped out some stationary and a pen and poured out your heart on paper? Not only are you able to share your feelings for each other in a more intimate and thoughtful way, but the letters themselves become romantic keepsakes you can cherish and re-read whenever your heart desires.
The couple who work out together stay together
Increase happiness in your relationship. Participating in physical challenges or activities leaves couples feeling more satisfied with their relationship and more in love with their partner.
Improve the efficiency of your workout. The mere presence of someone else affects your ability to do an activity. Working out with your romantic partner is a great way to improve your energy output, thereby boosting your performance.
Turn away from those screens and turn some pages. There’s a unique intimacy in the act of cozying up with the one you love and getting lost in a good book together. Take turns reading chapters to each other in bed or if you’re apart, read separately and then talk about the book together. Either way, you’re connecting in a new way.
