In this fast paced world where there is no time to sit back and relax, keeping the love and intimacy alive in your relationship looks like too much of a task. It’s not just the work pressure or financials or kids’ responsibilities that have turned you into a boring couple; the environment you live in also affects your mood and relationship. It is extremely important to connect with your better half but this doesn’t mean you have to go outtodinner, or take a vacation. A healthy and sweet relationship is about togetherness, about spending some meaningful time with each other.
This Valentine’s Day, let’s create a home that encourages you to spend quality time with your better half and keeps the spark alive-
Celebrate Your Relationship
Whether you are just a honeymoon couple or you have spent a decade together, a relationship grows with every moment and you would have millions of memories. The home you live in is your love nest and some parts of it should speak of the love between you and your better half. Use symbols of togetherness to adorn your house, they will also keep your cool in tough times. A framed picture, a painting you both love, a memorabilia- anything can make your house more loving.
Throwback to the Good Old Days
Remember the things you liked about your partner when you first met and use elements of those in your home. These little things have profound effect on your relationship. Do your little bit and you will be surprised at how happy you two will be.
Create a Dream Space for the Two of You
It is wonderful if you both have similar life goals. But even if you don’t, you can create a dream space in your home where you both can work on your dreams together, where you can take each other’s inputs and grow. No matter how small your partner’s goal is, never make it sound petty and useless. Try to learn about what he/she likes and you will soon realize why it is a dream worth pursuing.
Do Away with the Solitude
There is no denying that everyone needs a space for his own. It might just be a reading nook or a space beside that large window or just a chair in the balcony that has become your favourite spot. Well, if you want to bring more togetherness, a nook for two will do no harm. Of course you have the living room where you two sit together, but giving some time to yourself without losing the connection with your partner is definitely an upgrade you will cherish.
Do Your Bit
You are a couch potato and your partner does all housework in a jiffy- we completely understand that. But he/she is always doing it does not mean that it’s an invite to be taken for granted. Being lazy is no excuse. You should do your bit to help your partner without being asked. Just think of something that your partner would like you to do and complete the task beforehand. And, of course, a tidy house does not bite.
Have Date Nights in Your Love Nest
After you have prepared your own private retreat, why not spend some quality time. Set up a date night in your home and surprise your partner. Decorate with candles, prepare an exotic dinner, pour two glasses of wine and raise a toast to the most awesome ‘jodi’ of the world- that’s you!
