Valentines Day is just around the corner. This year don’t go out buy a gift for you loved one. Yep, I said that. Do something truly special. You have a few days to truly notice your partner.
Pay close attention to what they do on a daily basis to make your life easier, then make a card expressing gratitude for all those things and what they mean to you.
Offer a shower of love: Have them sit down, slowly walk around them and tell them all the things you love about them physically, emotionally, personally an intimately then jump up and down and shout I LOVE YOU a couple of times. You’ll both get a belly laugh which builds intimacy.
Ask them about their dreams then just listen to them with a smile on your face.
Offer to do an activity that THEY enjoy, even if it’s not your favorite thing.
Find anything that will bring the two of you laughter.
Make a personal coupon book for your partner to use throughout the year. Put specific things in it that your spouse would like to receive like a foot rub, a shoulder massage, putting gas in their car etc.
Being in a relationship requires effort. The effort doesn’t have to always be difficult or expensive. It needs to be fun and light sometimes. Imagine what your marriage would look like if you both did these things for one another on a monthly basis! You will build positive neural pathways- you’ll have positive feelings about each other and you’ll build emotional intimacy.
Here’s wishing you relationship joy!
