Whether you’ve been with your significant other for five months or five years, you probably know that relationships require effort in order to be successful. Maintaining regular communication, being willing to compromise and providing emotional support for each other are key elements of a happy partnership.

However, one of the most crucial, but easily neglected, requirements of happy couples is to never take each other for granted. With busy schedules and stressful obligations, it’s common to neglect your partner, which often leads to feelings of insecurity and resentment.

Taking time to connect with each other through small acts is an easy (and FUN) way to show your love and devotion!

Here are a few ways you can create  romance rituals to put the magic spark back into your daily routine!


Coffee + Talkie

Starting off the day with a ritual of love can be one of the most effective actions you can take toward keeping your relationship on track. Beginning any day on a positive note is always a good thing, as it seems to set the tone. We all know that a bad day usually begins that way and continues with a succession of annoyances.

If you live together, begin a wake up ritual that can be as simple as giving each other a kiss before allowing the other to leave the bed. Or you can set aside some time to chat as you enjoy you're morning coffee! (If you're more of a coffee BEFORE talkie kinda gal, wake up a little earlier to brew a pot & get your first cup in before your other half wakes up!) If you live apart, get creative with texts, sending short notes of a cute GIF before beginning each day!


 Netflix + Chill

Setting aside a dedicated time together after home or completing your work day can truly help to make you feel more connected to your love.

This kind of connection is often lost in the hustle and bustle of fixing dinner etc!

Your check-in ritual can be as quick as stopping to ask about each other’s day or more leisurely like sipping a glass of wine together while you catch the most

recent episode of your favorite TV show to watch together!

You can add efficiency by creating another ritual working together each day to complete a chore such as dinner prep or dishes. Find whatever fits your relationship + lifestyle.


Pillow Talk

At the very end of the day when all is quiet is a perfect time to reassure your love of their importance. A simple statement such as, “I really appreciate you offering to do my chore tonight when you saw how tired I was,” lets your bae know they are appreciated. Those nightly words of gratitude and affection can become a cherished ritual that helps to cement your bond.

These are just a few ideas to inspire you to create your own romance rituals. And you don’t necessarily have to incorporate a ritual for each part of of every day, but do consider the types of rituals that would be most meaningful + beneficial to your relationship!

Also, think about adding a special ritual for a weekly date night! Something that is a bit more time involved can keep the spark going strong💖

Do you have any love spells + rituals you use to keep the fire burning in your relationship!?
