5 Simple Ways To Rekindle The Spark In Your Relationship
Long lasting relationships don't just happen, there is a lot of compromise, understanding, patience, care and of course love that goes into it. There are high points and low points in every relationship, and this up and down is what makes them real and not utopian. Sometimes though we forget this very fact, and let the low points get the better of us and don't strive towards achieving the high points again. Other times we let other things in life make us forget exactly how important our relationship is. If you are missing something and want to rekindle the spark in your relationship then here is what you have to do.
Let Them Know You Love Them
It might seem redundant to tell your partner that you love them, since it seems like the most obvious thing. However, when you have been together for some time, saying "I love you" becomes a sort of habit like saying good morning. That is precisely why it is a good thing to ever so often tell your partner you love them, and really mean it with all your heart. Go ahead and even tell them what it is that you love so much about them in as many words as you can.
Give Them Warm Hugs
No, I don't mean the little bit of haphazard holding each other you do when you are making out, which eventually leads to sex. What I mean is that give them a warm and fuzzy bear hug of sorts. Hold on to your partner and not let go for a long time. Just stay there in each other's arms feeling each other's heartbeat. You need not even say anything to each other, or even try to kiss each other. Just a tight unselfish hug with no ulterior motive can make the two of you feel one at a whole new level.
Be Thankful To Them
As a relationship progresses we often tend to take each other for granted. There are so many things that your partner does for you that you are so used to by now that you don't realize the effort they put into it. Notice the little things they do, even if it just waking you up for an early morning flight so that you make it on time; realize it and be grateful for their effort of breaking their sleep for you. Genuinely thank them and let them know that every little thing they do is appreciated by you.
Make Their Life A Little Easy
You and your partner are both doing your own thing every day. Each of you is busy and occupied and just struggling on most days to meet with the pace of the fast moving world. Why not make things a little bit easier for your partner as and when you can? Were they supposed to pick up the groceries after work? Why not do it for a change if you can, so that they can come home directly. Have they stayed up all night preparing for an important presentation? Why not let them sleep a little longer in the morning and lay out their clothes and make them breakfast?
Give Them Time
In the end, nothing that you do or feel matters much if you can't take out time to spend with them. I get it you are busy and so are they, even so make time. I'm not advocating leaving all responsibilities and work to sit with them 24x7; but, but there comes a point when you need to realize that you have spent way too much time at work. Take time off work and shift your priorities a little, make it a point to spend some quality time with the one you love.
Go ahead then, rekindle the spark in your relationship before it's too late!
