Most relationships are filled with passionate love at the beginning and you just can’t get enough of each other. However, this honeymoon period does not last forever and at some point it will start to get less exciting. This marks the true beginning of your relationship and how you handle it determines whether you will continue being together or not. There are several exciting tips that you can use to keep the love spark alive and nurture healthy relationship, some of which are mentioned here.
1. Do the things that bring you together
Regardless of whether you have been together for a year or a decade, there are those things that will always bring you together. Whether it is gardening, cooking, or just taking a walk on the beach, identify them and start doing them again. These are probably the things that made you fall in love in the first place and therefore will help you reconnect. Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying each other’s company more and be in love as if you just met yesterday.
2. Get playful
The surest way of killing a relationship is by becoming too predictable and boring. That is why you and your partner need to become playful in a loving way. For instance, you can spend time just sharing silly secrets or funny stories. Make funny faces, pull of foreign accents, or tickle each other. Have pillow fights and surprise them with goodies one day as if it were special occasion. These and other playful things will breathe new life into your relationship each day and help to keep the love flowing.
3. Get to know each other on a deeper level
Communication is an essential thing in all relationships, and can be given interesting and fun twists. You can ask each other questions that allow you to know each other on a deeper level. These may range from the obvious such as their favorite childhood experiences and ambitions. You can then progress to deeper ones such as what they felt or thought the first time you met, and how they could communicate their love if they became dumb. Doing so will enable you to not only understand but also love each other more.
4. Massage each other
To keep the sparks burning, you and your partner need to draw closer. One of the best ways of doing so is by giving each other sensual nuru massages. You first need to set the mood by dimming the lights, lighting some candles, and playing some soft music. Ensure your partner is comfortable and have all the ingredients you need- especially some warm massaging oil. Take your time to stroke, knead and rub their whole body. Massages are not only therapeutic but also allow you to understand your partner’s body and set the pace for intimacy.
5. Make time to reconnect
Sometimes all you need is to reconnect with very simple actions that will prevent you from drifting apart. Make time for each other and just have some light-hearted conversations. Avoid your electronics and snuggle as you tell each other of how your days were or what your plans for the next day are. These activities may seem trivial but are necessary in keeping you in touch with each other. After doing it a number of times, you will find yourself looking forward to such moments. Consequently, you’ll enjoy being together more and you will get your groove back.
