- Rekindle the Mattress Magic
Remember when you and your lover first connected? You couldn’t take your hands off each other. The chemistry was undeniable. Over time, it’s easy to let that fire die out. You work hard all day long, and when you have some time to yourselves, you just fall asleep on the couch. Maybe you make time for the horizontal tango, but you’re lazy about it and the goal is to get it over with so you can cross it off your to-do list. (Let’s be real, this is okay from time to time, but it can’t be the only physical connection you get.)
You might be amazed how much you connect with your spouse by taking some time to spice it up behind closed doors. Take the time to look your best, not only for your spouse, but because feeling confident will make your bedroom time best. You don’t have to make it complicated; just take the time to do it right. Make out. Give the time all your attention. You’ll be really amazed how it reminds you of the days it was new and exciting.
- Take a Weekend Getaway.
Sometimes the best way to remove all the distractions that build up between you and your significant other is to just get away from it all and focus on each other. Set aside time to have a nice trip together. Relax by the pool together. Take a hike together. Do nothing together. Unplug from reality and just spend some quality time with the one you (should) love the most.
Maybe you don’t have the time and money for a big fancy weekend trip. We get that. That’s called life. However, it’s no reason that you can’t make your own little love getaway. Schedule a day that you are both available, and dedicate it to being together. Go on a picnic. Visit a local park together. You don’t have to spend a ton of money to rebuild the foundation of your relationship.
This might be the least creative item on the list, but it’s worth being mentioned because it’s important. If you ask any couple that has made it for a long time what the secret to their success is, they will almost always answer communication. Talking is critical for working out problems effectively. It’s also important for maintaining a friendship, a building block in keeping the magic alive. Just talk. That’s it.
