Your relationship with your spouse is one of the most important bonds in your life. If you’re feeling like your relationship has become off-balance or maybe even a little stale, there’s no reason to panic. In fact, it’s totally normal. We have so many responsibilities and relationships to maintain that they all can’t be at their very best at all times, you only have so many hours in a day and there’s only so much of your energy you can devote to others. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to become more in tune with your spouse so you’re closer than ever.
Focus on Your Spiritual Connection
There are so many aspects of your relationship with your partner that you need to focus on each one individually. To improve your spiritual connection, you could try an exercise to improve your energy strands, removing unwanted cords in your relationship to alleviate any bad energy that may be affecting your connection.
Another option, that would actually be a fun bonding experience, is to get a read on your aura-energy and chakra balances. Find an aura camera for sale and plan an evening where you two can take photos of one another and go over the reports. This can provide insight into what’s going on your partner’s life and provide guidance for how to deepen your relationship.
Book a Massage
Did you know that getting a massage can release oxytocin, serotonin, and dopamine? This is one of the reasons couples massages can heighten feelings of attraction and intimacy between partners. Book a massage for you and your significant other to spend some quality time together. During your treatment, focus on enjoying the peace and relaxation of the moment so you can get away from all the pressures affecting your relationship.
Want to take the intimacy to the next level, stay at home and give each other massages instead. Just make sure you have everything you need on hand like lotion, oils, and maybe even a massage roller.
Plan a Date Night
Going out can be a lot of hassle from transportation to booking a reservation. Plus, crowded spaces on weekends can make it hard to connect and have a good conversation. Instead, plan a date night in and order a food subscription box so you can spend time together in the kitchen without the additional stress of having to make time to go out and buy ingredients ahead of time.
Make it extra romantic by setting out flowers, playing their favorite album, and turning on an aura candle warmer lamp for ambiance. Your partner will appreciate the thought you put behind the planning..
Get Out of Town
It’s easy to get caught up in the routine of our everyday lives. Getting a change of scenery can help you set aside the stress and obligations you’d be reminded of at home. Schedule a weekend getaway to treat you and your spouse to a little rest and relaxation. This doesn’t have to be to some extravagant destination, but it can be. Think about places that you’ve been wanting to go to or somewhere that has sentimental value in your relationship.
In addition to location, think about activities you can do together that will give you an opportunity to bond. That could be a spa day, romantic private dinner, or something outdoorsy like kayaking. The most important thing to keep in mind is that the purpose of this getaway is to focus on getting more in-tune with one another, so put down your phones, leave the work at home, and be present.
Go to Couples Therapy
Couples therapy isn’t just for relationships that are on the rocks, it can be a valuable tool in even the healthiest marriage. Not only does it give you a neutral place to discuss any problems but it’s also just a great space to talk about general challenges in each of your lives and how you can work together to create an even stronger bond. Listening to your partner’s concerns, stresses, and view on life can give you insight and allow you to empathize with them. Just make sure you are both on the same page about going so that this doesn’t have the opposite of your desired effect.
Try one, or all, of these solutions to become more in tune with your partner and your relationship will reap the benefits.
