Want to get some intimacy back in your relationship and experience a closer bond with your partner?

Here are 5 easy ways to get this happening:

1) Embrace kissing daily

And I don’t mean a quick peck on the cheek as you run out of the door for work.

I mean a lingering, sensual delicious pash with eyes closed while in each others arms. Pure intimacy right there.

2) Cuddle often

Cuddling increases feelings of safety, security, trust, strength, healing, self worth, belonging, happiness and appreciation.



3) Just sit and be together

At the end of each day sit with your partner, hold hands and take turns discussing your day.

Make sure you really listen when it’s your partners turn to share as that is so important when communicating and increasing intimacy.

4) Spoon in bed

For at least some of the night anyway! Studies say that hugging encourages bonding by increasing the levels of oxytocin (happy hormone) in the body. Wake up happy!

5) Allocate time

Make time at the end of the week to sit down and discuss with your partner your highights and frustrations for the week. Express it and then let it all go. Start each week fresh, free of the past.

  • So easy to take your partner for granted! I’d add to the list “Date night” once a quarter. I’d love to do this more often but unfortunately with the kids, we can’t as we don’t have the carers available.

  • If you want to cuddle in bed or have some intimate time
    My bf locks our door and we sometimes let our 5mo cry, I know he’s safe in bed or on the floor
    So there’s no reason to run off and tend to him
    We sometimes need to be pushed into enjoying sex and taking just a few minutes to be together

  • This is a really great article. For someone who hasn’t been in a proper relationship for some years, this may sound strange, but you become so self sufficient that you get used to relying on yourself and not having that person around that you need to consider when making decisions and relearning to nurture another adult. I’m in this position, and I know a lot of people find love easy, but I’ve had to relearn everything I thought I knew. For so long I had to just nurture my son and be a mother and father. Coming across this article has helped. Thank you.
