It is human nature to fall into a cycle or routine. We do the same thing daily. For some of us, it’s school, to others, it’s work. Unfortunately, your relationship can be a victim of this. If you are in a long-term relationship or marriage, there is a certainty that at some point, things are going to get boring.
If your goal is to spice up your marriage or relationship, the ways to do so should not just be sexual. There are other things that can be done to achieve this goal.
Try new things.
After finding out you and your partner have fallen into a cycle, you need to switch things up! Travel to someplace you haven’t been before even though it is just for a weekend. Visit a new restaurant and participate in activities neither of you have never done before, such as participating in a pottery class, culinary class, painting class or even more outdoorsy activities such as skating, surfing, mountain climbing, and hiking. If that is not enough, you can play fun new games with your partner on date nights or just go on a couple’s retreat.
Thoughtful presents and gestures.
I believe receiving gifts is almost everyone’s love language. We all love getting spoiled once in a while. Make it a habit to occasionally do or get something thoughtful for your partner. It shows that you spent time thinking about your partner and definitely warms their heart. Being able to anticipate what your partner needs and making it available can rekindle and spice up your relationship. Thoughtful presents and gestures can pull your relationship or marriage out of that routine it’s fallen into by surprising your partner and making them feel loved.
Some alone time.
Alone time does not have to be sexual or romantic Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying it shouldn’t, it just doesn’t have to be. Sometimes, you can use this time to talk with your partner and find out what has changed in their lives. A lot of times, when children get involved, marriages lose that spark because there is no longer anytime to connect with your partner to find out what they are thinking, what they like, or what is different with them. This alone time would rekindle that flame by making you feel in sync with your partner– and of course, could end in a romantic evening 😉
