If you feel that your relationship has struck a dry phase and the love gestures that were common once are no longer coming forth, it is usually because you have not understood the importance of those simple little things that make a huge difference in a relationship. Not only would this have a positive impact on your relationship, but also on your body and mind.
Some love gestures you should make frequently are –
There is nothing better than holding hands to let your partner know that you care. You can also ease the pain of certain health complications by this gesture. If your partner has a headache, at times even holding hands followed by a hug can bring relief. This gesture is especially needed when your partner is feeling sad or scared.
Kissing lowers the level of the stress hormone cortisol. As you and your partner are the only person who can share this experience, you feel closer to each other after this act. Your immune system can develop some sort of resistance by kissing. It may sound gross but when you kiss, the exchange of saliva also exchanges germs with it. Your body needs to produce antibodies to fight those germs and hence become stronger.
The best way to make your partner feel secure is by cuddling. Oxytocin levels rise due to cuddling and levels of stress are reduced. This has a very good impact on your blood pressure as well as condition of the heart. The tickly sensation a woman experiences when hugged by her partner from the back is due to the release of oxytocin.
Often understated, this is often one of the most important features that can make your relationship healthy. Particularly in the stressful days, your partner needs someone to unburden their feelings. Suitable advice after he or she is done is also needed.
Little gestures such as playing around with your partner’s hair, keeping your hands on his shoulders, running a hand through the back or neck, or any other. Your skin sends good signals to the brain that make you happy after being touched. Your faith in the relationship is reaffirmed and this makes you optimistic about being together. So, keep such fondling coming.
If your partner has been surprising you every now and then with sweet gestures such as leaving a love note in your folder, or simply calling to say “I love you!” These produce a lot of endorphins in your body, perhaps as much as walking. So, why not start giving surprises.
