8. Do Things Together
Try the following activities together: Working out. This helps improve a couples communication. For that matter any physical activity is good. The reason is that endorphins from exercise provide an adrenaline rush that boosts arousal. Take a weekend trip. Try silly things that you haven’t done since you were a kid, like riding roller coasters, sledding, even play “hide and go seek”. These are items you can’t possibly do over and over again, so they automatically get you out of a rut. Try even goofier things like cooking dinner naked, heck clean the house together naked. Do a nostalgic memory exercise and reenact those acts from the past that made you both happy. Walk instead of driving. Walking provides a superior level of intimacy.
The key is to try something new. It doesn’t matter how long the activity is. Dinner is a perfect time to try something new. It is an activity that people perform together often. Dance together before dinner, or cook different items. If these things don’t help, sit down and create a couple’s “Bucket List” and actually do those items you would like to do together.
