Do what ever it takes to get your partners attention.

Sometimes we need to show our partner that we need their attention.  We can gain their attention by doing something totally silly just so they have to look at us.  Sometimes this is a great ice breaker for if you have had some problems or stress in your life.  Just to break out laughing and get you partner thinking about you and your relationship instead of the things bothering them.  Plus it can be a whole lot of fun.

Are you in tune with your partner?

Have you ever though about how in tune you are with your partner?  Think about this for a moment, do the following things ever happen to you.

1. You pick your phone up right as your partner calls or texts you.

2. You can finish each others sentence.

3. You both have the same idea pop into your head.

4. Your dreams over lap and have similar subject matter.

5. You can sense what the other one is feeling.

Well if these or a multitude of other similarities are connecting the two of you, then you are very lucky.  This shows that the two of you are on a very similar frequency and that you are in tune with each other.  This is not to say that if these things don't happen you are not in love with each other but when they do happen it shows a deeper more spiritual connection between the two of you.

Start watching for this little things and I bet they happen more often then you think.

Why not touch more????

Do you like hugs, massages and hand-holding? Well, experts say that there are benefits in touching that can boost our health and fitness.
Getting a hug triggers the release of oxytocin, a hormone sometimes referred to as "love" or "bonding" hormone, in the body which lowers levels of hormone cortisol and reduces stress which boosts immune function. Oxytocin also makes people feel more secure and trusting to each other. According to the health research done at the University of North Carolina, women who receive more touching via hugs from their partners have higher level of oxytocin in their system and their blood pressure and heart rate also appear to be lower.
In addition to hugs, touching like holding hands with your beloved also has great effects to the health and fitness. University of Virginia assistant professor, James Coan, PhD, discovered that hand-holding is good in calming people by administering functional MRIs to 16 married women while telling them that they might feel a mild shock. The warning triggered brain activity showing stress and anxiety. But when the women held hands with one of the experimenters, the stress response decreased and totally quieted down when they were holding hands with their husbands. When stress is lower, immune functions get more effective.
But pets and good massages can also give touching health and fitness benefits for our body. According to research, people's blood pressure drops when they pet dogs, more so, if it is a dog they know and love. Dog petting and snuggling with furry pets have also been found out to improve immune function and ease pain.
And who will say no to a good touching, massage, now and again? A massage can sooth tense muscles, slow down racing heart rate, relieve high blood pressure and decrease levels of cortisol which is good for over health and fitness. Due to the relaxed state, the body has the opportunity to effectively regenerate and recharge. When cortisol levels are lessened, the body's immune function becomes more effective.
So do not hesitate to give a hug or two to those you care about because it shows that you care in more ways than one.

Share a drink.

          You know something that has been lost in today's society is sharing.  We tend to want everything to ourself.  Sharing seems to be a thing of the past.  How often do you and your beloved share something as simple as a drink.  Instead of getting two drinks next time you are out why not get one and share.  Not only is this a wonderful way to connect it also saves money and the environment.  Plus one drink and two straws is a very simple way to say I love you.

Sign of the Times.

           Here is a simple little thing you can do to express your love in a huge way.  Get a market and a piece of paper.  Now write the words, "I LOVE YOU" as big as you can on the paper.  Now place it somewhere where you it will be in eye sight of your beloved.  Sometimes we just need a visual to tell us how much we mean to each other.

Music that reminds your of your beloved.

          Does your partner have a favorite song?  Do they have one that they listen to over and over?  Well if they do make sure to put it into your music mix.  Download it onto your iPod.   Whenever it pops up while you are listening to music it will serve as a reminder of your wonderful partner.  It will put them into your mind and use that as a signal to do something special for them.  Plus if the song comes on while the two of you are listening you can explain why you but it on there.  You might just get a big kiss for your efforts.

Feel the love.

          Have you ever stopped to take the time to feel how wonderful love is?  Do you bask in the glow of how much you are loved and how much you love your partner.   Really if you stop for just a few minutes and take the time to enjoy the love in your relationship you might just feel the warmth.  Love is a special thing and to much of the time during our busy lifestyle we don't take the time to enjoy it.  Much like the way we wolf down our food now a days to get done as quickly as we possibly possible, we are doing the same thing with our love.  Slow things down and enjoy this precious gift you are giving and receiving.
