In most relationships it isn’t huge issues that are causing the rift but more everyday, mundane things that can easily be remedied with a little effort. Here are a few things you can try to give your relationship a breath of fresh air.
One of the simplest things that one can do to prevent the passion from slipping away in your relationship is to care about your own appearance and hygiene. I mean, you have to care about how you look if you want your partner to care. That only makes sense. Doesn’t it?
Take the time to notice little things and compliment your partner on how they look. Tell them how much you appreciate it when they do something that is normally taken for granted, like cooking a meal or even taking out the trash. A kind word can go a long way to reigniting lost passion. There is a book called, “The Five Love Languages” that goes over this and four other things you can do to keep passion alive in your relationship.
Sometimes just the idea of a romantic vacation together can help to spark your relationship. Just take the time out on an afternoon and sit together making a list of places that you want to go together. This kind of daydreaming together helps solidify the relationship and make each partner feel more secure, which leads to greater intimacy.
Plan time for each other on a daily basis to keep the spark of passion from going out, and to get it back if you have lost it. Everyone has the same 24 hours in a day and the couples that last are the ones that take time for each other and don’t make excuses.
One of my personal favorites is taking baths or showers together! If you do this on a regular basis it is almost impossible to lose the passion in your relationship. Bathing each other is a very sensual activity and allows you to give to each other while relaxing at the same time. Try it, I promise you’ll like it.
Just because your relationship is starting to lose its passion doesn’t mean the relationship is finished. All of the examples above are easy ways that a couple can utilize to reawaken the passion in their relationship. As long as you still love each other, it is possible to bring back the passion and if you do the things I am suggesting that you do, you will never lose it.
