The COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a lot of havoc on the world at large and many relationships haven’t been exempted from the wreck.
Given that many couples have gone from seeing majorly during the weekends to being in each other’s face 24/7, there is bound to be a seismic impact on their relationships.
However, the change doesn’t have to negatively impact your relationship if you follow these tips that we have prepared for you and your partner.
#1 CANDIDLY DISCUSS THE PANDEMIC
The truth is that the world is in shambles because of the novel coronavirus, and people are processing the sudden halt to life’s activities differently.
Even though you and your partner might have similar values, your reaction to the pandemic would most likely not be the same. Hence, it is advised that you both talk about your feelings and address your current mental health.
You can let your partner become your therapist for the quarantine, and each of you can take turns sharing what bothers you. Remember to be present and wholly listen to your partner. You never can tell, you might discover something new about your special one.
#2 EXPRESS YOUR APPRECIATION FOR YOUR PARTNER
When you spend so much time with your partner, you are bound to visibly notice his or her flaws, and that can get you quite irritated.
Instead of giving in to your urges to get snarky, you can choose to go the high road and focus on the great qualities you overlooked while you were busy with life.
At the end of each day, tell your partner something about them you are grateful for and urge them to do the same.
#3 STAY ACTIVE AND FIT
Couples that keep fit stay together. While that slogan isn’t an ultimate hack, being active with your partner can work wonders and revive lost flames.
Due to the positive effects that activities like exercise and gardening have on your mental health, bringing your partner in your regimen can also improve his or her mental health.
According to experts, exercises release endorphins which are responsible for making you happy. If you and your partner remain elated, then nobody’s head is going to get blown off.
#4 START A SEXUAL ADVENTURE
Now, you have all the time on your hands, and what do you plan to do with it if not sex up? Before, the excuse for lack of intimacy was a busy schedule, but that’s not the case anymore.
Now is the time to open the floodgates to all your sexual fantasies and begin to live them out with your partner.
Due to the pandemic’s stress, it is advised that you start from a comfortable place and expand to something more freaky and daring.
To spice things up, you can introduce sex toys to the equation and role-plays, and watch how you’d never be able to get over your partner for life.
#5 SPEND TIME WITH YOURSELF
Although this article is focused on spicing things up with you and your partner, you are an essential part of the equation.
Giving your partner some alone time and engaging in activities that you enjoy not only replenishes you but keeps you happy. And remember, happy you equates a happy partner.
