Keep Love Alive, Even When Life Gets Crazy Busy
What to do when you're too over-scheduled and exhausted for romance and connection

Make a list of the things you do and that fill up your days. There are probably some activities that you only do because you feel like you “should” or because it’s what you’ve “always” done.

Ask yourself if you really want to keep doing these things and if continuing these activities serves you or doesn’t. The goal here is to spend your time and energy only on those activities that are in alignment with your priorities. Know that activities like sitting through your kid’s soccer match in the pouring rain is probably not something you really want to do, but supporting your child by cheering him or her on IS a priority.

When you make conscious decisions about what you do, you’ll find that you have more choice-- and a sense that you have more time too. That newly-created time can be spent connecting with your partner in meaningful and fun ways. 

Be an irresistible invitation to love

Many couples who feel a lack of passion have stopped trying. Yes, they’re busy and over-scheduled, but at a certain point, they’ve given up inviting more love and connection into their relationship.

Make one of your priorities this...

Be an irresistible invitation to love.

This means that even when you and your partner are cleaning up the kitchen after dinner or “vegging” out in front of the tv after a long day’s work, you are also staying open to one another and you interact in ways that bring more passion to your relationship.

Remember...

  • Expressing genuine gratitude invites in love.
  • Lovingly (and sensually) touching your partner reignites spark.
  • Really listening and engaging with what your partner says makes you irresistible.

Watch and see how your partner responds when you say or do certain things and-- if you feel the connection and things heat up-- THAT’S another way to be an irresistible invitation to love.

The great news is you can keep the spark alive by doing these “little” things every day. It doesn’t take much time, energy or money and the results are amazing!
