Once the honeymoon phase is over and familiarity begins to dominate your relationship, it can start to feel stale and boring. Relationships take work but sometimes you just don’t know what to do. All you see is that things don’t feel right and you’re at a loss as to what to do about it. When this happens, it can feel like you’ve hit a roadblock.
It doesn’t have to be this way. There is plenty you can do to rekindle the spark that brought the two of you together in the first place.
To help you out with this, I’ve put together a 28-day Rekindle Your Relationship Challenge designed to give you simple activities to rekindle the spark in your relationship. The challenge activities are fun and designed to reconnect you to your lover.
In the challenge, you will receive a daily email with your challenge action of the day and a short explanation of why it works or is important for your relationship.
There’s no obligation and if you miss a day, it’s okay. I know 28 days can feel like a lot, but your relationship is the most important thing you have and definitely worth the effort. Plus, you’ll have all the ideas to do again later. Some of these challenge ideas you can do every day and some great for surprising your lover every once in a while.
Which brings up a good point: To keep the spark alive you need a balance of the familiar with the novel. Your relationship was fun and interesting in the beginning because it was novel. It feels stale now because it has settled into a routine and lacks novelty.
We need the comfort of a familiar routine in a relationship. That’s what makes it feel safe and comfy like your favorite pair of jeans. We also need to spice it up occasionally to bring back the romance and allure.
The challenge ideas are a mixture of both familiar and novel actions. I recommend once you’ve finished the challenge to keep the list of ideas handy and add to it when you think of something new. Identify which ideas are good to do regularly and which ideas should be saved for special occasions. Keep the special ones special so you can spice things up when needed. 😉
