One of the most frustrating things on earth is when you reach into your pocket to pull out your smart phone and realize it’s completely out of power. You remember that you didn’t charge it up, and now, it’s dead. You won’t be able to play Candy Crush or check facebook or text anybody until you find a way to recharge it.
When something is important to us, we need to make sure it stays charged up.
Think about this simple concept in terms of your marriage. If your marriage is important to you, shouldn’t you be intentional about “recharging” it daily? Shouldn’t you make sure you’re doing everything in your power to keep your relationship with your husband or wife powered up at all times?
Most of us would say we want a fully charged, marriage, but we don’t always know how to do it. There’s not a simple instruction manual or a plug attached to your spouse you can just connect into an outlet. No, recharging a marriage requires much more effort than recharging a phone.
Luckily, it’s not as difficult as you may think. Below are ten simple ways you can add a daily dose of energy to your marriage.
In no particular order…
1. Give a foot rub.
This might not sound glamorous, but it’s very helpful. When you’re touching your spouse (and not just sexual touch), it connects you on a physical and emotional level. Your conversations become deeper when you’re touching while you talk. Plus, your spouse will really appreciate the massage!
2. Go to bed at the same time.
This one isn’t always practical, but do it as much as you can. “Pillow Talk” makes for some of a couple’s most intimate conversations, plus there a lot more than talking you can do together in the bedroom!
