Activate your relationship!

This morning, as I was walking up a steep hill, walking against a blustery, Autumn wind, I was thinking about how Nature really activates our senses. I could smell the damp earth and leaves, feel the crunch of conkers underfoot and the cold wind on my face, hear the wind rustling in the trees, and as I reached the summit of the hill, I could see the fields stretched out for miles before me, covered in mist.

In that moment I felt truly energised.

It’s often after spending time in Nature like this, that I can come back to my office feeling more inspired and motivated to tackle the day ahead.

Sometimes in relationships we can feel as though things are a little tense, stale, or flat. We can feel stuck in a rut or de-motivated. If you think about the atmosphere when there is no movement or wind, it can feel quite tense or heavy.

The key to breaking out of this stuckness is activation. Doing something together with your partner that moves you. anything that engages your senses and which you wouldn’t normally do, or haven’t done together for a long time.

Some examples of this could be:-

  • Going for a walk together
  • Visiting an art gallery
  • Having a romantic meal together
  • Taking a bath or shower together

Shaking off the cobwebs can really help you to take a fresh look at your relationship.
