Tips from Life Coach Lisa Phillips

‘We all like a bit of routine but we need to balance this with something different as well or we will just get bored and take each other for granted. It’s important to balance our needs – some routine and some adventure!

Doing something new, having some fun, doing a new activity together can break up the mundane ‘ business as usual’ that can happen in a relationship. It helps us focus on why we chose our partner in the first place and appreciate what we like about them. Also, we all like to feel special and appreciated – so why not make a little bit of effort to do this for your partner?

Even a few words of appreciation each night can help each other remember why you are together in the first place. It also helps you focus on the things you like – rather than the things you may find annoying about your partner, particularly if you have been together for a long time! One of the most regular complaints I get from partners is that they don’t feel special any more…..so a little effort goes a long way.

Lisa’s Tips for a New Way to Celebrate Valentines Day included:

1. Aim for fun! When you first dated, you probably spent time doing fun things, laughing and just enjoying each other’s company. Its easy to forgot to play as you become a more established couple. Why not spend Valentine day connecting with the child inside you both? Go to the Zoo, have a picnic on your bedroom floor, go ice skating, a dance class – anything that brings out the child inside of you.
2. Appreciate each other. Why not write a list of what you appreciate about your partner and share your list with them? Do it naked for more of an impact!
3. Write each other a love letter -its easy to take each other for granted so remind your partner of all the things you love about them.
4. Get a massage together.
5. Make a handmade voucher book for your partner. Fill it with treats for each year. E.g This voucher entitles you to a massage, great sex, or even a night off cooking!
6. Do something meaningful together that makes you appreciate your own life. Volunteer at a homeless shelter, animal home and spread some love to others as well as yourself on V day.
