One of the best ways to cultivate romance and foster togetherness in your relationship is by following a few relationship rituals. Practicing relationship rituals on a regular basis can bring you both closer to each other and keep the spark alive.
Happiness is one of the ultimate goals in life as well as in a relationship. We are all united in this journey to a happy life and each person has their own formula, their own rituals, to achieve happiness, filled with joyful living.
How do you enjoy all the wonders of being, while sharing the path with your significant other? Well for starters, being in a healthy relationship means having your needs met, while also fulfilling your partner’s. Exchanging love and caring is what keeps tenderness and unity between a couple, two things essential in any relationship or marriage.
We accomplish this by showing our partner every day how special they are and how important they are in our life. Living a life that is filled with pleasures, giving, and receiving unconditional love and by being intentional.
Being Intentional In Your Relations
Dedication is key to most things in life. For example, meditation must be done every day, not a day skipped to get the full and wonderful benefits of it. Love is not any different, it must be cultivated every day. If meditation is making your soul a priority, having love rituals is making your relationship a priority.
Studies show that having rituals before performing certain tasks makes teams work better together and like each other more. It can be something as simple as performing a sequence of rhythmic foot stomps and claps or sending love letters every month even though you live together. Finding something that resonates for both of you is important.
It can be a special day you celebrate every month with simple love reminders or by preparing their favorite breakfast food. Or even something that you plan ahead and create big expectations for. It doesn’t matter how it is demonstrated, how big or small. What matters are the intentions involved and the want to make something special for the one you love.
The Importance Of Creating Routines In Relationship
Our daily lives can sometimes be overwhelming and take us away from the present, making it easy to not be mindful about our life and our partners. That’s why a ritual is so important. By creating the habit of doing something, in this case, rituals of love, it becomes part of your daily “to-do” list and it’s no longer a strange thing that needs extreme planning or massive amounts of energy.
It can be something as simple as bringing your partner a cup of coffee, but with a good morning note, or making the bed with messages on the pillow if you won’t see each other for the day. This strengthens our bonds and creates special little moments that only you and your partner share. You then create personal involvement which is crucial for the benefits of rituals to emerge.
Some Ideas For Rituals
1. Morning Meditation.
Meditation has great benefits for the body and mind. By doing it with your partner you’ll get all of them plus the endorphins of love, making it a great combo. If you don’t have a practice meditating, you can try guided meditations on apps like Lojong or Calm.
Make this your morning ritual for a great start to the day. Another great way to spend quality time together is through a moving meditation like taking a walk or a bike ride at the beginning or end of your day.
2. Planning Surprise Dates.
Forget the usual movie night or dinner dates, it’s time to get creative! You can take turns planning dates weekly or monthly. If you don’t have the time or need some help join the Date of the Month Club where you will receive 2 new date ideas each month.
Leave all the research and planning to the experts. This will insure you and your partner have a unique experience every month.
