How to Get Back Your Newlywed Bliss
After 11 years together, I can attest to the fact that my husband and I know what it’s like to go through the honeymoon phase. We also know what it’s like when the honeymoon phase ends and life begins. It’s not that we don’t love each other or find one another attractive anymore, it’s that life has finally brought us back to reality and we now have kids and a house and all those other things that require our attention, which means we have to prioritize. It didn’t take us long to realize that our marriage is a priority, and we wanted to get back to that honeymoon phase. If you’re in the same boat, don’t worry; it’s easy to be honeymooners all over again.
Get in the Mood
Even when you’re not feeling romantic, be romantic. Sometimes you just have to talk yourself into being in the mood. When was the last time you weren’t in the mood and decided to knock that out of the way anyway, and didn’t enjoy it? Exactly; all you have to do is make the time to be intimate and romantic with one another and it won’t be long before that feeling just comes naturally.
Change the Subject
When you in a new relationship with your significant other, you didn’t spend your days talking about mortgage rates and interest rates. Rather, you talked about fun things, your dreams, and getting to know each other. Change the subject and start talking about the fun stuff again.
Just because you’re already married and you’ve seen each other at your worst doesn’t mean you have to make that a habit. Make it a point to look nice and dress up for your other half. If you’re a stay at home mom, make it a point to throw on a little lipgloss and mascara and take off the clothes you’ve spent all day cooking and cleaning and playing with your kids in. Smelling nice helps, too.
