In many ways, the first year of a relationship is often the most stimulating. During this time, you’ll discover your lover — inside and out — and build a foundation that could lead to lifelong love. But, what happens after the honeymoon phase ends and the exhilaration passes? Some couples fall into a rut and have a tough time reigniting the fire in their relationship. Sex can become routine and boring, which could make your relationship seem dull. Luckily, you can easily boost the enthusiasm between you and your partner and revitalize the passion.
So, what can you do to reawaken the love craze?
Exercise: Working out and watching your diet will obviously improve the way you look, which will be a sexy surprise for your partner. In addition, it will lift your confidence and that’s incredibly attractive.
Sleep naked: Stripping down before bed is sexy, irresistible and has health benefits. Skin-on-skin contact releases oxytocin (the feel good hormone), and will lead to spur-of-the-moment sexy time.
Get toys: Sex toys are a great way to breathe life back into intimacy. There are so many products available; dabble with something you and your partner have never tried. Who knows — you might find something you can’t live without.
Take trips: Surprise your partner with a staycation. It can be hard to get away, but a quick trip to the beach or Las Vegas can help refresh your relationship.
Be spontaneous: Sometimes, saying, “I love you,” kissing and even sex become so predictable that they lose their sparkle. A little spontaneity goes a long way.
Shower together: What’s sexier than being naked with your love? Being naked and wet with your love. You probably shower at least once a day; why not shower together?
Work on you: It can be hard to focus on yourself when you’re in a relationship. But, if you don’t, it’s hard to grow. Take some time to concentrate on you; learn a language or start a new hobby like archery. By focusing on yourself, you’ll grow as an individual, which can be fascinating to your partner.
Keeping your relationship stimulating can be tricky, but it’s doable. If you dedicate time to yourself and your partner, a spark of excitement can easily reignite the flame.
