Those little things that matter
Trying to keep your love alive during the holidays, but not sure how to proceed? Here are five effective tips to try.
The holiday season is supposed to be about love and spending precious moments with family members and those that we love.
But so many of us feel stressed out and drained, with so many activities to catch up on, friends to visit, dinners, and so on.
So how does one keep love and romance alive during the holiday season and all the activities?
Keeping Love Alive
Bond with The Family
Create Realistic Expectations
1.Bond with The Family
If you are like of us, you often wish there were a thing or two you could change about your family.
While that's probably not going happen - as you can imagine a thousand and one ways that your family can easily ruin your happiness with your spouse - it is still a good idea to allow them to bond with each other.
Allowing your spouse to bond with your family can work wonders for you. It opens a new window into your life, your family history, traditions, and shared experiences. This insight is often enough to make most partners fall deeper in love.
- Plan Ahead
Quality time is not simply time spent together, it is time well spent. So, to make the best of your time and keep your sweetheart intrigued, you need to plan.
Make plans that include exciting activities, or that otherwise increase your chances of romance as a couple. Love is a shared experience and the right activities can include doing yoga together, volunteering for a good cause together, or anything else you know your spouse will enjoy.
Planning helps you to tailor as many events as possible to get the exact experience that you seek to create. If you are not a good planner, then don't worry. Just pick up a pen, write down your thoughts, and work from there. Also feel free to plan together with your spouse, unless you intend to make your planned activity a surprise.
- Create Realistic Expectations
Disappointments are a huge mood killer. And as this is the season of gift-giving, it is easy to feel a little let down when a gift falls short of expectations.
The solution here is to keep all expectations realistic, or within reason. From packages to trips to shared experiences, do not promise what you cannot deliver. Better to promise a little and over-deliver, than to promise the world and under-deliver.
Better to wow than to disappoint.
- Have Fun
Having fun matters in any relationship, no matter your age or how long you've been together. It's what brought you two together in the first place.
So, have fun and have it often. From playing board games to taking a Jiujitsu class together, laughing together, making love, and lots more. You want to do those things that keep your friendship alive.
- Be Sweet
Love is sweet. That's why so many people fall into it. So, to keep your one-and-only feeling properly loved all through the holiday season, it's your responsibility to also remain sweet.
There is no exact science here or special guide to follow. Simply bringing coffee to bed, sending a provocative text, giving occasional hugs, cuddling, leaving sexy notes, wrapping up a gift, or surprising her with lingerie are all valid forms of being sweet!
- Stay Healthy
Catching a cold at the wrong moment can ruin all your efforts. And the same goes for other kinds of illnesses during these holidays.
As a couple, it is in your best interest to keep warm and healthy. As you can only play your little love games when you are feeling alive and well.
In closing, you can see that this guide on how to keep love alive during the holiday season merely points you in the right direction, but does not boil down to specifics.
Nothing is written in stone, so feel free to adapt these tips to your own needs and situation.
The key? Do whatever you can to make holidays you share both fun and happy.
