- As a couple in today's society, it can be difficult to keep
things fresh and exciting. With all the distractions of work, home life,
social media and simply being together and doing the same things day
after day, something has to be in place to keep things new.
You'll often hear couples advice from a variety of sources but there are a few things that help maintain that sense of newness that you should consider learning.
- Date Night. Remember how fun things were when you first met? Whether you've been together 10 months or 10 years, there's nothing like those first few dates. Plan a night out at the restaurant you first met at or walk along the beach; whatever it is that you did when you first met. Recreate the moment or you can even start a new one.
- Do Something Mutually Fun. One of the best aspects of a healthy relationship is to meet in the middle. Even if your partner likes something that's not your cup of tea, try to make a compromise so that both of you get to enjoy something you like. You may just find that you enjoy what they like after all. Whether it's a sporting event, a day at the spa or shopping, you can find aspects of it that you like and the important thing is being together and having fun.
- Plan a Trip. A trip doesn't have to be a long vacation; a day trip or staycation is the perfect way to reconnect, do something fun and have that sense of excitement you need. Whether it's a trip to a beach close by, a day of shopping or a drive through the countryside, there's nothing like getting away and just enjoying each other's company.
