I found an old post draft that I wrote with some sexy love tips. It turns out I wrote quite a few! I must say, reading them was making me laugh, so I decided to dust off the cob webs.
It's spring-time, and love is in the air. So in honor of trying to keep things fun and exciting and light hearted in your marriage, here are...
5 IDEAS FOR KEEPING THE SPARK ALIVE.
I mean, where else is a better place to discuss these things??
Alright, let's do it! We'll have a little series over the next bit. Each week, choose just one that sounds good and go for it.
-MANAGE YOUR ENERGY.
Imagination, freedom, and creativity are snuffed out
when you are burning energy on worry, anger, fear, and negativity all day.
Learn how to manage your energy effectively. It can be done.
(I wrote a whole post about this one!)
Protect it, conserve it. Don't burn it on little things.
It can help if you struggle with feeling
"too tired" or "too stressed" for sex.
And it can help the imagination.
-CHANGE UP THE SCENERY.
Make time to experience something NEW together.
A new restaurant.
A new hike.
A new town or a new country.
It keeps conversations alive.
Am I right or can't you just think of that one time in ____?
(insert the exotic location of your choice. Maybe it was the kitchen.)
-DO NOT LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR HIM/HER.
Learn how to live for YOU.
Learn how to thrive in your OWN skin.
Learn how to be an individual and explore your OWN passions.
Do not live for another person.
You are most radiant and irresistible in your own element!!
-GO ON A COUPLES OR WELLNESS RETREAT.
A retreat just might feel like a honeymoon.
It felt that way for us.
Nothing is better than you & your partner feeling ALIVE
and feeling ALIVE together at the same time.
Taking care of your body & mind changes your vibration.
That can change the vibration of your marriage.
That can lead to lots of smiles.
See you in the U.S. or Ecuador?! :)
-DRESS UP FOR YOUR SPOUSE FROM TIME TO TIME.
Cause you dress up for other people.
Lipstick does wonders.
Ratty sweatpants are not sexy.
Unless that is a novelty, of course. :)
Life is short, friends! Let's make our marriages and relationships the best they can be.
As always, would love to hear your thoughts and additions.
P.S. - We didn't previously request a Vermont volunteer, but it turns out we could use one. Please let us know if you live in the area and would be available to help.
