As life gets busier, sometimes it’s easy for couples to unconsciously let their relationships slip to the wayside. But it’s possible to keep it strong even in the midst of busyness. Here are 10 simple ways:
- Spend time apart
- Let small things slide
- Fight fair
- Stay intimate
- Say thank you (and please)
- Keep it surprising
- Make the effort
It’s helpful to write these down where you can see them; post-it on your computer, fridge, bathroom mirror, dining room table, kitchen sink – somewhere where you’ll see it as a daily reminder. Of course, this is in no way an exhaustive list but it’s a simple and practical list that will get you back on track towards intimacy.
Have fun and enjoy each other. Always. Love and laugh lots.
