Building A Healthy Relationship 15 Seconds At A Time
And no, I don’t mean that measly peck on the lips when you greet each other.
I’m talking about kissing like you just started dating. The type of kiss you get lost in.
Any couple who’s been together for a while can attest that after the honeymoon phase comes and goes, it's the passion in the little things that becomes to easy to lose.
I’ve learned that once you get caught up in the daily grind that is life in this day and age, you have to be more intentional about keeping that passion between you and your mate.
So Zaz and I have decided to take up the 15-second kiss experiment! The point of this experiment is for you and your mate to kiss for at least 15 seconds straight once each day [or as often as you see each other if you don't live together].
Purposefully doing so helps you feel closer, keeps the passion fresh and keeps you focused on each other by tuning everything else out for just a small amount of time each day.
So far, Zaz and I have been doing it for about 6 days and let me tell you…this is the best advice I’ve taken in a while!
It forces us to take a moment to reconnect with each other every day. Between all the projects, emails and business, we carve out that moment just for us. Especially when we don’t think we have the time to connect otherwise.
I’m happier. Zaz is happier [ecstatic actually, considering her love language is physical touch]. In fact, she suggests we try it a couple more times a day and I’m all for that. Less than a minute a day is a very small investment into our relationship, considering the high returns.
You should try it out!
