5 Easy Ways to Reconnect With Your Partner After You Have Kids
A few weeks back we shared with you 5 Ways to Take Care Of Yourself through a series of challenges. Today we would like to do the same with your love life.
We know it’s hard (To say the least) to keep up with everything and usually what gets left behind or a bit unattended is our relationship with our partner. Hey we are not accusing nor judging anyone here (We are the first to admit that our relationships with our respective partners are not being taken care of)
So to push ourselves and you to do better in this essential part of our lives we have come up with 5 challenges to gently push you to do something about it.
Let’s be honest… Wouldn’t you love a bit more attention and consideration from your spouse? So why not be the one to offer it in the first place? And maybe once your spouse/partner sees your efforts he will take a similar step towards you. Relationships are made of that. Give and take is an essential part of it and so too is communication.
Communication is key in a relationship and somehow when you have children you misplace that important part of your love life. We know and understand that it’s difficult with all there is to do on any given day and the to-do-lists never end, but if you want your relationship to work you have to work at it.
So these challenges will help you do the following:
Stop Competing and Make each other Feel Loved and Appreciated
We all need to feel appreciated and small gestures are the quickest and easiest ways to do exactly that. When was the last time you showed your partner that you care for him? How was your relationship before the baby/ies came along? Was he used to getting all of your attention? Do you ever feel as if you are constantly competing with him to see who’s the best parent? Our first challenge will help you think about all these questions and provide you with an easy way to answer them.
Experience Something New together
Oh the magical Date Night. If you ask any expert the answer you’ll get is that in order for your relationship to work you Must make time for it. Well we happen to agree with them but with a slightly different perspective. Why not Morning Breakfast, Sunday Brunch or Afternoon Coffee? What we mean is that it doesn’t have to be a date night in the exact sense of the words, but what we absolutely agree on is that you MUST find some time to dedicate to HIM and him alone. The second challenge will offer you our way to see Date Night.
Rediscover each Other
When was the last time you held your spouse’s hand? Or the last time you cuddled with him. That you kissed him, caressed or showed him in ways other than words what you feel for him? We are not talking about your intimate time with him. We are talking about simple gestures that you can do in front of your kids. Do something to show him that he is on your mind even when you’re busy taking care of the little ones. Show him that he matters and he’s not always at the very end of your list. With the third challenge you will enjoy the pleasure of small gestures and your little ones will get a giggle out of it too.
Reignite the Love
Flirting! I personally find this a challenge on its own but wouldn’t you love it if he flirted with you the way he did before the kids? Think about what you used to say to each other. Find that word, compliment, little something whispered in each other’s ears and share it again with him. You’ll be surprised on the results. This challenge will help you recharge your love for each other.
Pleasure each Other
Stop your dirty mind! I know what you’re thinking, and this challenge is not about that! Although a healthy sex life is absolutely awesome it is not our place to push you into it! We just want to provide you with the tools to reconnect with your partner, and that should help you both find the balance in your sex life, but it is not our place to challenge you to it. Love making is not a challenge to be crossed off, it should be the result of two people loving each other. So having said that we would love to offer a suggestion through this last challenge that could lead to it but only if that’s where you would like to take it.
So if you feel you want to give it a try just let us know through the form below and start the “All About You 2 Challenge”
