Bring the Romance Back.

Whether you’ve been dating for months or married for years, it never hurts to add a little spark to your relationship. If you want to enhance the connection between you and your spouse, take a look at these top tips for bringing the romance back…

Show them your care
Your spouse may enjoy hearing how you feel about them, but actions often speak louder than words. Showing your appreciation via your actions is as important as telling your other half that you love them. Of course, you don’t have to aim for carefully orchestrated declarations on a weekly basis! Simple acts of kindness, like preparing their favorite meal, ensure you can show your spouse how you feel on a daily basis. 
Go on a retreat
If you live together, the day-to-day demands of daily life can get in the way of romance. To recapture the spark, plan to take some time out together. A couple’s retreat is a great way to reconnect with your other half but even a short mini-break can work wonders for a relationship.
If your budget doesn’t stretch to going on a trip, then plan a staycation instead. Plan a fancy meal, grab some valentine’s day essential oils book a babysitter and enjoy spending one-on-one time with your significant other. Agree to ignore everyday issues while you’re on staycation and you can really relax, without the worry of chores, work or family life.
Spend some time apart
Spending too much time together can be tricky for any relationship, so as well as scheduling regular date nights, why not spend some time apart? With a break from one another, you’ll have the opportunity to miss your spouse and crave their return. This is a sure-fire way to bring back memories of your early relationship and can rekindle the romance too. 
Although it’s easy to spend time apart if you live separately, you can actively plan to do less together. Going on a night out with friends, hitting the gym alone or taking up a new hobby will mean you’re in each other’s company less, but you’ll value your spouse even more when you do spend time with them. 
Pay attention
Your spouse is the person you care most about but do you really show it? With so much to do on a daily basis, it’s easy to overlook your other half. If you find yourself sneaking a look at the TV when they’re telling you about your day or glancing at your phone when they’re talking to you, you aren’t really paying attention. 
By putting your focus onto them, you’re showing your spouse that you respect them and want to connect with them. Even when they’re telling you the same anecdote for the hundredth time, engage with your other half. Better still, plan some new adventures and make sure they have some new stories to tell! 
Recapturing the Romance
When you’re living a hectic lifestyle, it takes both partners making the effort to really enhance a relationship. If you want to make things work, however, there are endless ways to reconnect with one another and recapture the romance
