Ignite the Passion In Your Marriage
The fast pace of modern life is often an enemy to a passionate marriage. Exhaustion, insecurity, illness, lack of appreciation etc. can all deplete romance and passion in one or both partners.
Rekindling the passion starts outside the bedroom. Problems outside the bedroom usually translate to problems inside the bedroom. A healthy and active sex life begins by creating feelings of closeness and intimacy in everyday life.
Touching your spouse in a non-sexual context is a great way to build trust and intimacy in a marriage. This could be anything from holding hands to hugging, giving your child a backrub or even having a bath together.
Another area that is often overlooked in rekindling passion is your diet. Food affects hormone levels and thus impacts your love life in a positive or negative way.
Alcohol, nicotine and caffeine taken in excess all lower the sex drive. A diet high in saturated fat also lowers testosterone levels.
Both partners need to be more comfortable with themselves and their bodies in order to give themselves fully to each other.
Rekindling the passion doesn’t happen overnight. Both partners need to be willing and committed to making it happen.
Here are a few books to help you along the way.
