There are two types of relationships. There’s the one where intimacy is alive and flourishing in a marriage. Then, there’s the other where the couple hasn’t quite figured out how to have a love life that is more frequent and electrifying.
Now for that second type of couple, there are a variety of factors that will impact their love life. Time, stress, a lack of energy and sometimes challenges within the marriage are all culprits. Some couples don’t really know how to get their love life back on track when they face those situations.
But there is hope.
3 INTIMACY HACKS THAT INSTANTLY IMPROVE YOUR LOVE LIFE
In this article:
Improving intimacy isn’t as difficult as some couples might think. There are a few simple ways to make romance a top priority again.
1. Find New Turn-Ons
Change is usually one of the biggest factors affecting the intimacy in a marriage. Life, family, body and career changes can all add to stress which ultimately leads to a lack of interest in any type of affection or physical connection.
When the body changes, for example, it can be hard to get as excited about intimacy as it was in the past. This is one reason why couples must look for other turn-ons. Believe it or not, there are so many sexy things spouses do for each other that are sometimes forgotten.
For example, do you like when your spouse takes charge, makes sacrifices for you, cooks and cleans, or even how safe they make you feel? Each of those can be a turn on when you think about how well they do those things and why they do them. When couples begin to view their spouse’s sexy in a new way, the love life will surely improve.
2. Give Yourself Affection
Some people don’t often understand the impact self-love has on a marriage, but it is significant. Loving yourself will quickly improve your love life with your spouse. People who find ways to love and appreciate themselves make much better lovers.
When there is acceptance and not very many insecurities there usually aren’t any inhibitions when it comes to the closeness in the bedroom with a spouse.
You can love yourself by being kind to yourself, eating right and giving your body attention. Being desirable to yourself first makes you more desirable to your partner.
3. Just Do It
The easiest way to keep your love life alive is by just doing it, yeah literally. Intimacy will almost instantly improve the more present you and your spouse are to one another. Couples have to be risk takers in this area which adds to the excitement.
Intimacy doesn’t always have to fit into a calendar. It can happen wherever you are and doesn’t have to be tied to the bedroom and the evening only. Couples must get creative and have some fun by taking the routine out of it and being a little risky. When it comes time for intimacy, think lunchtime loving, back of the car, closets, and backyards, to name a few. Couples don’t have to wait for the time to be right to get it on.
Couples, improving intimacy is always possible and easier than we sometimes realize. So try these 3 hacks today and get your love life back on track.
