Tips to Reconnect

Rediscover the spark in your relationship with these tips:

Call a truce.

Arguing a lot? Call a truce for a day. Agree to 24 hours of peace.

Remember the good times.

Remind each other of when and where you met. What happened next…?

Share your favourite music.

Share your favourite tracks, all the way from your childhood to now.

Get outside.

Whether you fancy seeing a sunrise, feeling the wind in your hair, or want to stargaze – breathe deeply and enjoy each other’s company.

Have fun playing childhood games together.

Try out some things you used to enjoy as kids. Play a game together.

Be affectionate and appreciative.

Do you need sex to feel loved or need to feel loved to have sex? Whichever you need, kissing, cuddling, kind words, a thank you and support all seem to help!

Make a date.

Plan it together and stick to it. Enjoy taking your time getting ready. Make an effort for yourself and each other.

Set aside time for intimacy.

Sex would be spontaneous. The reality is we’re all busy. Carve out time to give yourselves the chance to be alone together and relaxed.

Ask questions, and listen.

Do you really know about each other’s hopes and fears? Take time to listen carefully.

Look to the future.

What do you want from your relationship a year from now; in five years; in ten?
