Seems obvious, right? Well, some couples lose sight of the simple things. So don't discount simple acts of touching when it comes to feeling closer to your partner. This is especially important when you haven't had time for sex or other forms of more extended closeness. Touch is a very effective form of intimacy. Giving your partner hugs, kisses and even small shoulder rubs once in a while helps you to feel that you're physically connected.
One of the most effective ways to boost your bond when your to-do list starts over-taking your relationship is to reminisce about your shared past. Go to the park where you had your first date, play a song that you used to listen to and dance in the living room, or talk about the memories you had in the first year you were dating, back when the romance was fresh. These things can help you remember why you fell in love in the first place.
Having some common interests makes it much easier to stay connected. For instance, if you both love sushi, try taking a sushi making workshop together. Doing activities that are fun and flirty can add something special to your everyday lives and can help you create new memories. The more you can do as a couple, the more opportunities there will be to reconnect on a more regular basis.
Shared ambitions are another must for couples who want to reconnect. Goal setting is by far the most effective way to connect and feel excited about the future. Talk about your financial goals together, your careers, your children (or future children), vacation plans and any other shared dreams you have. Once you've settled on something to work towards as a couple, create a five, 10 or 15 year plan with your partner to accomplish your goal.
