5 Ways to Bring Attraction to an Intimate Relationship

5 Ways to Bring Attraction to an Intimate Relationship

If you and someone you love are in an intimate relationship, by way of marriage or other long-term commitment to one another, it takes a certain amount of energy and dedication on each person’s part to keep the love alive and flourishing. Many of us wish it really weren’t that way; however, with all of life’s stressors and obstacles, the fact is that it does take a fair amount of work to make a close relationship work.

Keeping the feelings of butterflies and the love alive can be done with a little creativity and selflessness for your partner. Here are five ways to bring attraction to an intimate relationship.

Be Nice

Yes, it’s that simple. Well, not really! Although it can be difficult to always remain respectful to your partner’s needs by being nice, it is undeniably necessary to make any relationship work. Even if your loved one has rubbed you the wrong way, spoke to you in a tone that is not as pleasant as you would like, or has done something that wasn’t “right” in your eyes, try to be nice and respectful. Of course, this is a two-way street, and if you are not receiving niceness in return, then both of you need to have a heart-to-heart discussion. There is nothing more attractive in a relationship then two committed people treating each other kindly as much as possible.

Have Confidence

Attraction comes with confidence. Being confident in your mindset and about your body, will always go a long way with your companion. Being confident is not about being centered upon yourself, but about exhibiting an inner beauty and positivity that will make your loved one’s heart beat a little faster. Self-confidence draws people closer, and will act as a magnet with your companion!

Be Healthy

A healthy lifestyle has a plethora of rewards. Not only does it have a myriad of benefits for your physical and emotional well-being, as it garners attractiveness both inside and out, it can bring you and your partner closer. Working out along with cooking healthy meals together will give you both the quality time that every relationship needs in this hectic world.

Get Creative

In the bedroom, that is! Find ways to spice up your love life and find what works for you both. Intimacy will keep you both connected in a powerful way, and doing so with various creative twists in the bedroom will keep that attraction intense and thrilling. What’s more, it isn’t just for the bedroom, either! Keeping attractiveness at peak levels can be accomplished by “surprising” one another, whenever and wherever works for the both of you.

Do Right

Doesn’t it make you feel even more attracted to your companion when he does something for you that is totally unforeseen? Something as little as making that pot of coffee in the morning, purchasing his favorite item at the grocery store, and filling up the gas tank unexpectedly will take attractiveness to a whole new level. Many people truly believe that actions speak louder than words, and guess what? They are spot on. Doing certain things, or actions, for one another shows that you really do love each other, and that, itself, is overwhelmingly striking.

As Tony Robbins says, “the quality of your life is the quality of your relationships“. To achieve maximum happiness and fulfillment in your life, you need to start with your relationship. Attractiveness certainly doesn’t mean physical attractiveness and always being “easy on the eyes”. Attractiveness in a relationship is being the total package, and loving each other for who you both are, inside and out. Love for one another comes from an innate desirability within the soul and, with a little work, can last a lifetime.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
