Curb stress and boost your mood with a few of these “off-the-wall” reminders.
Put a little “oomph” in whatever you do.
Get your glow on. Always wear a smile.
Plan a “spring fling” with the one you love! Do something special (perhaps a surprise) to demonstrate your love.
Watch a sunrise or sunset together. Bring a picnic basket with snacks and your favorite beverage. Let the warmth you feel for your partner be felt.
Your body is mostly water. Don’t let it get thirsty. Lubricate. Just add water.
Get the kinks out. Get fit. Run a short distance to see what that feels like. Zig and zag for the fun of it.
Do you have a bicycle? Ride it. Go for a “joy” ride.
Expand your attention span. It’s important to notice the little things your partner does. Acknowledgement is an important part of a healthy love relationship.
Immerse yourself in intimate conversation with the one you love. Learn to talk about anything and everything, all the time.
Don’t smother your partner. No one can grow in the shade. Partners need space to rejuvenate, to get back on track or just to spend some time alone. If you hover. . . they just might run for cover. Everyone needs their space.
Your pants or dress don’t fit? Peel off some pounds. Jump rope. Hop and skip. Take a brisk 10 minute walk. Hold hands. Do a simple workout several times a week.
Be good to yourself. Never beat yourself up over a mistake you may have made. Be less critical of yourself and others. Forgive yourself and move on.
Don’t do everything in such a rush. Slow down. Learn to relax. Take a deep breath.
Be a kid again. Remember to be silly. It’s okay to cut up and play nice. “No KIDding!” 😉 Play hop scotch. See if you can stand on your head for more than 10 seconds.
Stay positive. Never give up on what you want to accomplish. Be a dreamer and schemer. When your heart speaks, listen to it. If you falter. . . go for it again. Never give up on your dream.
Eat right. Give up “junk” food. Ease off on the colas. You have to live in your body. . . treat it right!
Give your partner a loooong, juicy kiss! Make it last a lot longer than you usually do.
Turn over a new leaf! You don’t have to wait until the first of the year to begin again. Starting over is fun. Focus.
Get creative. Spice up your relationship. Be more spontaneous. Be more uninhibited. Do things differently!
Love with all your heart and soul. Always remember to speak, “I love you” at least once each day. Express love in new and exciting ways. Remember to love yourself and do nice things for you too.
