Relationship & Sex
Make Love - Reignite the Spark
There are lots of great things about being in a long-term relationship. The study shows that happy couples, in countless ways, have better health and overall well-being than their single or divorced peers. After all, a loving partner can offer the best companionship, luxury, and physical and emotional support when you need it.
Be more Touchy & Feely
Wendy Walsh, a clinical psychologist says "Long-term couples don't touch enough. “When we touch—especially skin-to-skin—we get a little rush of the brain chemicals that help trigger those loving feelings” is a chemical reaction between humans. If it's just a quick peck on the lips before and after work, makes an effort to step up your game, says Walsh. Adding to it, Walsh quotes research showing that a 30-second hug will activate a substantial oxytocin release. Wherein most married couples hug for three seconds or less in this current world, and so it is advisable, two to three times a day, to stop what they're doing and hold a long, calm embrace.
Some rush of brain chemicals will come from physical contact in bed—and not just during sexual role; either way is found from medically and by study too. Sleeping skin-to-skin with full-on dolloping or even just touching toes can have relationship benefits, too. A survey in 2014 stated at the Edinburgh International Science Festival found that couples who slept the closest to each other reported having more relationship satisfaction. And so you please get the toddler or the dog out of the bed and try snuggling for at least a few minutes.
Nothing is slaying communication faster right now than young generation staring at their smart phones, iPhones while girls are trying to talk to them at the dinner table, or vice versa. Science says, that in a 2014 Brigham Young University survey of heterosexual women, 70% felt that smart phones and other devices were inquisitive with their love lives.
Make a promise with your partner to limit your phone usage, phone calls, and television at mealtimes and in the bedroom, or determining together about precise times you will and will not use technology. "Otherwise, you won't give each other your full kindness, and it's easy to become irritated or feel detached."
Lock the Lips
Researchers found that locking lips can play an important role in the quality of a long-term relationship; wherein recurrent kissing was even more significant to bond satisfaction than frequent sex. A 30-seconds kiss gives a warm, secure feeling from that embrace hormone, oxytocin. Companions can give this feeling to each other by performing a hug and a kiss a mini connection in the morning before work and before bed at night, will work positively.
Complement Each Other
Try focus on more good things and less on the bad. Let your partner know what you love about them—no matter it is physical, logical, or emotional will actually help you see him or her in a more positive light. Make sure to start your time together by sharing some compliments back and forth.
See to Your Partner’s Desires
It is human general that everyone has a passion, as well your partner too. Try remembering why you fell in love in the first place; find a way to observe your loved one in his or her most passionate state. Your partner will become very happy and feel satisfied when he/she gets to see him/her being active and enthusiastic, and that's really the best way to see your partner.
Limit Your Expectations
Even with all of these tips, says Walsh, no relationship will be perfect and that's the most important thing to remember if you're feeling dissatisfied with your love life. "We live in such a sexualized culture, people come in thinking something's missing if they're not having 50 Shades of Grey sex and swinging from the chandeliers," she says. Before you decide your romance isn't good enough, she says, remember that all long-term unions have ups and downs, and that love can be felt and expressed in many different ways. "A lot of people end up in therapy because their expectations don't match the reality of their life, and they're hoping to change their environment," Walsh says. "Sometimes, what they really need to change is their outlook."
