You love your partner.
Of course you do!
You can’t imagine life without them.
But over the years you’ve noticed a decline in both emotional and physical passion.
The initial rush of attraction and butterflies have diminished…what does this mean for your relationship?
As we get older, our bodies change & our hormones diminish.
This brings challenges in the area of desire & baby-making.
We know this can feel daunting BUT there are SIMPLE things you can do to reconnect emotionally.
Visualize what you want your relationship with your spouse/partner to look like. What we tell ourselves over and over is what we create. Imagine what would happen if you visualized a vibrant sex life instead of telling yourself you are too tired, stressed, etc. to have sex.
Show your love by bringing them a cup of coffee in the morning or sending an “I love you” text during the work day. Make time for a kiss before/after work each day. The random act of doing something kind for your partner helps you shift to a more loving space.
Make time to listen to each other – next time you want to share about your day or maybe you are having an argument, try sitting directly across from each other with your knees touching. Assign one person to be the speaker and the other as the listener. After three minutes are up, swap seats! Remember – when you are in the listener’s seat, avoid making comments or challenging what they are saying.
HUG!! Hugging restores a sense of closeness with your partner. It opens the gateway for more verbal (or non-verbal ) intimacy in the future. Simply hold each other until you feel the stress and pressure of the day melt away. Repeat often!
