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 Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
