4. Switch Up Your Boring Routine
While routines can be comforting, they can also be dull – which leads to boredom. Boredom is a relationship killer, so it’s very important that you stay out of that rut and make a habit of injecting newness into your lives.
In fact, studies have shown that experiencing new activities produces dopamine, a brain chemical known to play a part in experiencing pleasure.
It only takes doing a few things differently – go to a new restaurant, or try a new food; have sex in a different room of the house; or jump in the car and go on a road trip!
Different doesn’t have to be crazy – it can be as simple as planning a special meal for no reason – you don’t even have to cook! Order take-out from somewhere nice, put on soft music and light a few candles.
