I’m always on the lookout for holistic methods of healing and loving that help you create whole, healthy relationships. As I read how magnesium can reverse the ongoing calcification that hardens and ages our bodies, I instantly realized there’s one ingredient that may have a similar affect on your intimate relationship.
What is this youthful ingredient?
It’s a sense of Surprise. It’s planning surprises and staying open to unexpected delight.
While there may be some comfort in predictability in your enduring relationship, it also may create a relationship rut. Consider the warning of Love expert, Leo Buscaglia —
“Love withers with predictability; its very essence is surprise and amazement. To make love a prisoner of the mundane is to take its passion and lose it forever.”
If you’ve noticed these rigid signs of aging in your relationship, you can reverse them.
Here are 5 ways to cook up your romantic recovery:
1. Change your routines
Take a new route home each day for a week.
Trade chores, or start doing some.
Tell a new, positive story about your past or your future dreams.
Try preparing or ordering a new meal one day each week.
Take in a concert with your kids or grandkids and stay in tune with youthful rhythm.
2. Unplug from electricity and outside communications
Enjoy simple pleasures with your partner for one entire day.
Prepare raw foods.
Read a novel to each other.
Take a stroll in a serene garden or busy boulevard.
Light candles for evening meal.
Share a sleeping bag and sleep under the starry sky.
Are you eager to plug in, or get back to basics for another day?
3. Pretend you’re strangers when you bump into each other in a public place
Ask new questions like, “What are you passionate about?”
See each other with new eyes, and mention a wonderful quality you admire.
Invite your partner for a date–at an outdoor cafe, art or science museum.
How can you win their attention and affection for a second date?
4. Explore your creativity and expand your horizons
Create a theme for a romantic getaway
Go to Paris, or cook a French meal together using a Julia Child recipe.
Sketch your lover at the dinner table, like a budding artist in Montmatre.
Rent a French film and sip French wine as you watch it.
Buy body paint and paint a landscape on your beloved’s body.
Cleanse your body canvases in a shared bubble bath.
5. Enjoy an holistic day together
Barefoot walking aligns your body with the earth’s Schuman wave & increases energy.
Nude sunbathing for 15 minutes per side supports your liver and inspires your lover.
Couples massaging with warmed oils soothes knots and stimulates pleasure of touch.
Raw picnicing with organic wine, fruit and raw cheese nourishes you and your feelings of romance.
Which activities tickle your fancy? Now imagine ways you can expand on these ideas to rekindle the spark of romance in your relationship.
