How to Deepen Your Relationship in Everyday Life

All relationships come to a point where routine life seems mundane and you start to wonder: where did all the romance go? This is a natural step for every couple that moves beyond the in-love phase into a deep, strong, adult relationship. But how to get from here to there is a little trickier. Unlike what many people think, it doesn’t take much effort to keep a marriage alive. In fact, there are some very simple things you can incorporate into your everyday routine.

For example, when you go to bed every night, instead of reading until you fall asleep try pulling the covers over your heads and whisper to each other. It is amazing how intimate and bonding a whispered conversation can get. Another thing you can easily accomplish in everyday life is to have joint dinners. Eating together is a great opportunity to catch up on each other’s day and thoughts. Save time every night to do this without turning to your phones or TV on. romance relationship

So far we’ve talked about what you should do, but there are also things you should never do. Many unhappy couples say that somewhere along the way they lost touch and could not connect to each other anymore. They do not realize that the falling out of touch does not happen overnight. It starts with not sharing, not talking about how you feel. Next, you confide in someone else, which denies your true partner the role of your emotional support. You might also be dedicating more time to your friends, or prioritizing the kids, or even looking at the phone more often than you look each other in the eye. These are all things that naturally drive you away from each other. Be aware of them and make your choices wisely, on a daily basis.

A relationship is a wonderful thing if nurtured properly. Avoid the things that betray your partner’s trust and adopt the everyday habits that deepen your intimacy.

Drifting Away from Each Other? Get the Love Back in Your Marriage

When you first started your relationship it was a great source of power for both of you. Your energy spheres were shared and therefore bigger and stronger than ever. But the years have progressed and with them came the kids, the pushy boss, the mortgage, and between all these you have lost the passion you once had.

So what happened?

Love -- Where Did It Go?

You have let your world get smaller and more private to the point that it is unreachable to your partner, and even to you. Since you no longer share your energy fields with each other you both feel weak and vulnerable. By not sharing your world with them you have done the one thing you vowed never to do – you abandoned your life partner.

Can I fix this?

Yes, you can. But it will take both physical and emotional dedication.

What does your body tell you?

Our bodies are the doors to our minds. Through pain your body is trying to communicate some emotional problem. There are many warning signs that you should pay attention to, such as feeling tired all the time, loss of appetite, headaches and back pains. Work on feeling healthy and comfortable with your body to help ease any emotional burden.

Work on reconnecting yourself with your relationship

First, you need to love. Show him you love him by greeting him warmly when he comes home. Call her in the middle of the day just to tell her you love her. Remember life is made out of many moments, make them count.

Next you need to change. Take a day off and do something just the two of you. Get a babysitter and turn your cellphones off. You will be surprised how much you still have to learn about each other.

Finally, trust each other. You started your relationship by promising to love each other unconditionally. Trust your partner, and yourself, to keep that promise.

Love and Relationship Coaching

Love is Commitment

Elena Eustache Relationship CoachLove is commitment and we often don’t keep commitments to our self or others yet we seek love. How is that work. If I don’t truly love my self or someone else because I keep breaking commitments – how do I create loving relationship. Love is giving and receiving there needs to be balance , boundaries and communication.We often complain about the significant other or the lack of one in our ‎life. It seems as if the one we chose is long gone and the person in front ‎of us is an imposter.‎

Many of us are looking for a loving partnership. We have created a ‎vision of the perfect partner who generally does not quite fit the picture ‎we conjured in our mind. It does not ever occur to us that perhaps we ‎are not ready for a relationship and the universe reflects this to us time ‎and time again. When we are ready we shall overlook the ‎discrepancies between the list and the reality and experience a ‎relationship. ‎


There is very little interpersonal communication in this day and age. ‎Everyone seems to have a very personal relationship with their mobile ‎phone and computer. Just go to the first coffee shop and see what is ‎happening. We are communicating with anything except ourselves ‎and the person next to us. We do not want experience confrontation, ‎conflict and connection. When a date does not work out we rush home ‎back to the dating website to find a new and more suitable partner. ‎Sometimes it works but for the majority of us we keep trying to find love.‎ But unless our own heart is healed it is rarely possible to attract someone whole in our life too. The work and change starts within first.

If the core of our essence remains the same during our lifetime, how ‎come the person we meet and fell in love with seems so disconnected ‎from whom he/she was when we fell in love. Did they really change so ‎much or is it the circumstances, the lack of time, the stress over finance ‎and the sleepless nights taking care of children that changed? ‎


Sometimes all we need is a little guidance to check ourselves, our needs ‎and our dreams in order to establish or reestablish a relationship.‎
