Remember the early days in your relationship…the joy, the excitement, the longing to be together? Yet over time, life can take over, and the fire that fuels your relationship can wane and nearly go out. This is the perfect time to get back on track! Don’t go into the new year with the old.
Here are five things to do to refresh your relationship.
Start by completing the free Porsha Principles Online Assessment to quickly identify what areas in your relationship needs refreshing.
Practice the three S’s to intimacy. (From Principle 2: Cultivate Intimacy….on deeper levels.)
Share something with your partner they are unaware of about you.
Seek your partner out to connect with them mentally or physically.
Support your partner in an area you know they need you.
Create a shortened version of our 14-Day Lift Your Partner Challenge by choosing a day to do three things special for one another to lift each other up to the fullest. (From Principle 3: Lift Your Partner…every day.)
Identify together the fire starters that cause friction and frustration between you. Make a commitment to eliminate them completely for two weeks. This will help you make a hard stop with interacting in a way that hurts one another, and it will make a pathway for creating new loving ways of connecting. (From Principle 5: Avoid the Fire starters… they can ignite a blaze.)
Put your partner first over something else important to you. Make time for that “thing” they’ve been wanting to do with you by blocking off the time on your calendar. (From Principle 8: Protect, Profess and Prioritize Your relationship… with your thoughts words and actions.)
