4 Ways to Have More Romance & Passion
It’s easy in life to get overwhelmed, overbooked, and overextended. Most women, who are historically good at multitasking, tend to live in a state of feeling overwhelmed. In the midst of kids, career, home, bills, and mile-long to-do lists, it seems like there’s never enough time in the day to relax, much less spend romantic time with your partner. If we’re not careful, it’s easy to put our marriage on autopilot, leaving our relationship on the back burner and hoping that it will somehow manage to take care of itself. Unfortunately we then find ourselves feeling burnt out, disconnected from our spouse and wondering why we don’t feel much love, passion, or romance. It’s easy to get in a rut in your relationship. Before you know it, every weekend revolves around your child’s soccer game, a Netflix movie and Chinese takeout. Date nights and romance become reserved for special occasions and anniversaries. You find yourself missing days of laughter, romance and cuddles. So how can you get and keep the romance and connection you crave alive and well in your relationship? Learn four ways to have more romance and passion.
Four Ways to Have More Romance and Passion
Plan a romantic getaway.
There are a lot of proven benefits to romantic getaways: women who vacation more show increased satisfaction with their marriage; and couples who vacation together tend to have stronger bonds. Not convinced yet? Vacations carry many other benefits such as alleviating work stress, overall improved romance and better sex long after the trip. Romantic getaways are an excellent way to recharge and reconnect to your spouse.
Spend some quality time together.
Disconnect from the outside world, put your phones away and set boundaries with your kids and work. Make your time together a priority. By doing this, you are demonstrating to your partner that they are important and valued. John Gottman, a leading researcher in the field, suggests that happily married couples make time for one another regularly. In fact, he suggests that couples put aside at least five hours a week for one another. At first glance, five hours of uninterrupted couple time may seem like an unachievable goal. But in the grand scheme of things, it’s only 3% of our entire 168-hour week…yep, only 3%! Talk about some of the ways you each enjoy spending time together and try to incorporate at least one date night each week.
Seek out a therapist.
Therapy is not reserved for couples in crisis. Therapy can be beneficial to all couples and a trained therapist can help teach you the skills to you need to communicate more effectively through conflict and to listen and respond to your partner in a supportive way – even if you don’t agree with them. A therapist can help you identify your needs and learn to communicate them to your partner. Clients who attend therapy regularly are more likely to experience improved communication, better intimacy and higher relationship satisfaction.
