August is Romance Awareness Month and it’s time to reflect on all that’s needed to keep your relationship vibrant and full of passion. Now, more than ever, we need to pull together and maintain our connectedness to our loved ones as we emerge from the pandemic.
Below are some helpful tips to help you keep the spark alive in your relationship despite all that’s going on in the world.
Journey into Each Other’s Worlds:
You may love golf, while your partner loves reading. Now is the perfect time to open yourself up to your partner’s likes. Read the book she most adores and plan to teach her golf. By spending time in each other’s worlds, you’ll gain a different perspective.
Take a Staycation:
Consider a vacation in the comfort of your own home. Have you always wanted to visit Paris and walk along the Seine? How about seeing the Leaning Tower of Pisa or taking a stroll down the back alleys of a Swiss countryside village? Get creative! There are countless virtual museum tours online to check out it. Plus, you can make it even more enjoyable by preparing some local foods from your desired destinations.
Plan a Date Night:
Keep the spark alive by planning a special date night. Set your master bedroom as a romantic haven—change the sheets, make the bed and shower. Put away your sweatpants and turn off your smartphone and television. Listen to your favorite romantic music, light scented candles and prepare tasty hors d’oeuvres. Set the stage and let your imagination take over.
Explore your Sexual Desires:
You and your partner should consider exploring different sexual accessories together. Why not splurge and buy a vibrator or a new lubricant. How about purchasing a book that explores sexual positions? If you always use water-based, perhaps try premium silicone? Maybe experiment with flavored lube, or stock up on some erotic readings or romance novels.
Schedule Alone Time:
Spending too much time together can create irritability. So, pick an activity for yourself that doesn’t include your partner. Time apart strengthens your bond when you come together.
Take the time for self-care and see your health care professional to get caught up on your medical needs. Evaluate your hormones and trust in Revibe to boost your sexual confidence, so that you can boost your relationship and perform in all aspects on your life.
