5 Quick Ways to Revive a Dull Relationship
Everyone goes on with their daily lives, you work, you meet each other for dinner and you go back to your respective homes at night. As time goes, you might find your relationship is sinking quicker than Titanic. Before you panic and pull the panic button, below are 5 easy ways to revive your relationship and turned it from dull to excitement.
Take a walk down the old memory lane
Remember the long forgotten little café back in the alleyway, just two streets down from your college? Or how about the ice cream parlor that you used to frequent together in early dating days. Revive the old spark of young love by going to places that you have used to go before moving on to swankier places uptown.
Make an Effort
Relationships requires effort, the same goes for friendships. It takes an effort of both partners to push through the dull moments and inject excitement into their daily lives. Instead of having the same routine everyday, why not set aside a day in the week to dress up and go somewhere special. It doesn’t have to be an expensive restaurant; it’s all about pampering yourself and the eyes of your significant other half.
Learn New Things
You know how people tend to bond greatly during and after an adversity? Studies have shown that when couples perceive that their adversity is coming from outside the relationship, the bond tends to be strengthened. You don’t wish for some misfortune to befall on you but what you can do is to create the situation that generates those feelings, like learning a new skill together.
It should be something that both of you have interest in pursuing but yet did not have the time to do it before. Take what you have learned and practice off each other like learning Spanish or Tango. Turn what you learn into hobby that both of you can indulge in like gardening or photography.
I know a lot of couples rather slouch on the couch on a weekend, than to take up a new sport. Instead of recommending doing Yoga on the mat, pick up an adrenaline sport to set your heart pumping and your excitement spiking. It is a great way to edge each other on and challenge each other to greater heights like rock climbing. What about exploring a whole new world together like scuba diving?
Talking about exploring a whole new world, traveling among couples are a sure way to pull each other closer together. Travel to a whole new place without much planning and explore the place with no regards for plans, take time to relax and leave the stress back home. In a foreign country, you would not have distractions like family and friends obligations, blocking out your boss who loves to call you every time he couldn’t find a file.
