7 Small Acts Of Love That’ll Take Your Relationship Back To The Honeymoon Phase
With our super-busy lifestyles, it is becoming more and more essential to find small ways of showing our partners that we care. We don’t need elaborate strategies or a special day to do something that will make them smile (and limiting your loving gestures to that can begin to sound like an excuse). Here are some very simple ways of delighting your partner. Once you get in the habit, you’ll start to find your own personalized ideas for ways to show your love.
1. Leave a love note.
All you need for this is a sticky pad, a pen, and your heart. Express your love in simple words and leave these sticky notes in places that you know your partner frequents. Mine was surprised to find a trail of notes one morning—on the bathroom mirror, inside her cupboard door, and on the fridge.
2. Relive a happy moment.
My wife once told me about a movie that had made a big impact on her while growing up. With a quick search online, I was able to get the movie ready for viewing within 15 minutes. This is a great way to show someone that you listen, you care, and you want to share the things that are important to them.
3. Make a playlist.
After hearing my wife sing a few tunes from her school days, I quietly downloaded a few albums to her phone. What joy she showed when she chanced upon dozens of these nostalgic hits, readily available on her phone.
4. Nest and nurture.
One day, when I knew my wife wasn’t feeling too well, I suggested she take a nap. But before she did, I spread a blanket for her, parted the curtain so the sun trickled in just the way she likes it, propped her pillow up with some cushions, put her latest book on the bed, a bottle of water on her side table, and prepared a diffuser with some calming lavender essential oil.
