I know a lot that goes into my service, also translates directly into my personal life. I get asked by my friends and family frequently for life and relationship advice (I guess the logic is, I love for a living, so I must have insights into keeping passion alive). The two things I've noticed the most??? #1 Kiss for 10 Seconds or Longer
Kissing is awesome.
Remember your first kiss? The nerves? The anxiety? The excitement? The tingle from head to toes? (I hope it wasn’t just me that experienced the tingle…) There is just something special about a good kiss.
Kissing releases endorphins, helps reduce blood pressure, fight cavities, and reduce the pain of headaches and cramps. It’s even a barometer for sexual compatibility.
Yet, as amazing as kissing is, many people often allow the kiss to be replaced by the peck (gross). A peck is something you give your grandma, not your lover.
Pecks to not lend themselves to passion.
Make a pact to choose passion in your relationship by committing to kiss for 10 seconds or longer every day. When you part ways, kiss each other like you’ll miss each other.
#2 Turn Off Your Phone
Nothing says “You’re not important to me,” like your partner constantly looking down at their phone.
I’ve realized lately that I have this issue… so I’ve begun to turn my phone off, leave it at home, or put it in another room when I’m with people I love.
If you want more passion in your relationship, turn off your godaamn phone!
