7 Ways To Connect On A Deeper Level With Your Significant Other

Having a connection with your spouse, sexually, physically, and emotionally is crucial.  It helps you both grow together in your relationship.

If you don’t put time and effort into connecting with your spouse, your marriage will never reach its full potential. Below you can find seven ideas for couples who want to connect on a deeper level.

1. Reconsider Time Spent on Social Media

Do you spend a lot of time on social media? If you compared the time you spent on these sites to the time you spent with your spouse, what would the percentages be?

Chances are you love your spouse more than social media, so you should show them by connecting with them, rather than an online world.

2. Have Breakfast or Coffee Together

If you both work, you may not see each other that much. Even if you both work from home, your time may be spent on completing tasks rather than one another. Take some time to get up earlier in the morning to have breakfast or coffee together. Just sit and enjoy one another’s company and talk about different things. The goal is to have some undistracted time together.

3. Create a Morning Ritual 

Do you have a morning ritual you should share with your spouse? For example, do you make a smoothie each day or go for a run? Why not share this with them? It’s a great way to start the day together and connect.

4. Kiss Hello and Goodbye

It’s a good idea to greet your spouse with a kiss hello and goodbye – no matter what. Doing this creates a physical and emotional connection. Even if you are mad at one another, it is a good idea to kiss hello and goodbye. This simple act can quickly transform your day.

5. Forgive Quickly

If you hold a grudge, your feelings of disconnect will increase. You mustn’t be resentful of your spouse. This is especially true when it comes to petty issues that may arise just from day-to-day activities.

Keeping up with all the wrongs that the other person has committed against you can drive you apart rather than help you feel connected.

6. Take Time to Smile

Have you ever taken time to smile at your spouse intentionally? While this may seem silly at first, you may realize how grumpy you have seemed when you start doing it.

When you smile, just the act of smiling, endorphins, dopamine, and serotonin are released. These are neurotransmitters that help to create feelings of happiness. Every time that you smile, your body sends out feelings of well-being to the brain. 

Also, your spouse’s brain will likely mimic your smile, which means they are getting a dose of these happy signals too. Just smiling at your spouse will make a huge difference. If you can laugh together, it is even better.

7. Try to Keep the Newlywed Feeling

Do you remember the way you felt when you first got married? At this time, you may have thought that your new spouse could do nothing wrong. While things may seem more realistic now, you may also feel more connected if you act like newlyweds again.

As mentioned above, kiss during the day. Send flirty text messages to one another. Turn a normal evening into a special date night. Taking time to do these small things will help strengthen your marriage and ensure your spouse feels important and special. It will also increase your connection.

As you can see, there are more than a few things you can do when it comes to feeling more connected to your spouse. Be sure to keep the tips and information above in mind to achieve the best results. If you want a great marriage, now and in the future, then taking time to connect with your significant other is a must. While it may be hard at times, it will be worth it in the end.
