Ways To Keep Intimacy Alive in a Relationship

Relationships can be hard to maintain sometimes, especially when the feelings that connect you and the excitement begins to fade. Intimacy issues may be associated with the disconnection between couples as the physical contact becomes less.

Touch is a fundamental part of the human system. Studies have constantly shown the importance of regular loving touch and holding on self esteem and ties. Affectionate touch can actually boost the body’s levels of oxytocin, a happy hormone that influences bonds and attachment. Indeed, a life without physical contact can be very lonely.
Ways To Keep Intimacy Alive in a Relationship
So, to keep your intimacy stable and be more alive, here are some tips worth noting:

1. Embrace shared interests.

It helps when as a couple, you have oriented yourselves to schedules only the two of you are involved. You become more mindful, not by memorizing dates and times, but also of the others feelings. It also improves your attachment to each other.

4. Invest time.
Of all that needs to be given, time is the most precious. Invest more time for you and your sweetheart. This will enable you to catch up and talk about the stuffs you’ve missed about each other. Not to mention it feels great to have someone willing to spend extra times with you.

5. Offer gifts/favors.
Giving is loving. But isn’t it sweet to know that someone offers you a favor even without you asking for it. It gives that feeling of importance and being really special.

And it’s more than fulfilling to know you’ve painted a special smile on his/her face again.

9. Be extra thoughtful.
