This is one of the simplest exercises that will let you see your partner in a new way. Simply sit in front of each other and maintain a long-lasting eye contact for at least 4-5 minutes. Try not to touch them and only let your eyes do the talking. They say that our eyes are the windows to our soul and this will give you just the right opportunity to see their soul. Keep yourself relaxed and blink as many times as you want, but keep your focus on their eyes.

This is really easy, but if executed sincerely, will make the two of you blend to a single entity. Place your forehead together by facing each other. After when you have made a comfortable connection, simply close your eyes and take some deep breaths. Try to match the pace of each other’s breath after a few minutes. With your eyes closed, you will soon be able to match your rhythm with your partner’s, connecting you two to the universe.

3. Feel

Our touch is undoubtedly one of the most underrated senses, but it is certainly one of the most powerful ones too. Close your eyes and don’t speak at all.  Concentrate on the sense of touch and start to feel your partner’s body. Start by bringing your hands together and go as slow as possible, making every inch, every moment count. Make your hands memorize each and every cell of their body.

4. Listen

Who thought that listening could be an exercise, right? But it works really well at times. Now when you have really seen your partner and have felt them, start listening to them without any interruptions. Take chances and give each other 7-10 minutes and express your opinion or gratitude. Don’t just hear – listen to each and every word they say.

5. The weekly conversation

Amidst each other’s hectic schedule, it gets pretty tough to really know your partner and what they are going through in their lives. Every week, take 30-45 minutes and simply talk to your partner. Don’t let your phone, laptop or work to distract you. Have a real conversation and ask them anything you want.

6. Hug them more often

Yes, it is as simple as that. It has been observed that a hug can regulate blood pressure and normalize heartbeat. This will let your partner feel more relaxed and will certainly make you connect with them in a deeper way. Wrap your arms around them and hear their heartbeat. Stay in that moment and forget about everything else.

7. Do what they like

An unexpected act of kindness can make them fall in love with you all over again. Kiss them in the middle of a conversation and let them know how fortunate you are to have them in your life when they are having a bad day. Be their strength and cheer them with your random romantic acts.

9. Cuddling

Who doesn’t like cuddling, right! Take a few more minutes while making love with your partner and spend some quality time cuddling together. Close the doors, play some good music, and escape from the world. It’s just you and them. Make that moment count.
