Spice Up Your Love! 


couple-hugging-each-other-bench

If you were to think about one special person in your life right now, who will that be? My guess is the one you refer to as your; “Honey”, “Sweet heart”, “Darling”, “Love” “Valentine”, “Sweetie” or maybe some other special names you have coined for yourselves probably in your local language or some other foreign language. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that someone holds you special in their heart regardless of your flaws.

Relationships are powerful and therapeutic. Just think about it, having someone to talk to after a hard day’s work, or having someone who cares about you and how every single minute of your day is being spent. What about knowing that there is someone special who can listen to you when others may seem not to pay attention, or even being able to share your deepest thoughts and feelings openly with someone who understands and is willing to make you a better person.

Love makes life beautiful and being in a healthy relationship adds color to your life. Relationships are like plants which require good soil, sunlight, water and some other nutrients to flourish. A farmer knows very well that he has to water his seeds consistently before they begin to blossom and produce a bountiful harvest for him.  Often time, people only get excited at the onset of their relationship (first few dates) but soon experience some form of dryness or “boringness” in the relationship and may even opt for a new one with a different person with the hope that the “excitement” they seek may be restored again. Sadly, this cycle goes on and on.

Relationships require work and time- by way of watering the relationship (Like the farmer waters his seeds) thereby flaming the embers of love.

Here are some powerful ways to spice up your relationship

  1. Communicate more: in relationships, communication is key. You should be able to talk about EVERYTHING! Nothing should be too difficult to talk about and this should be cultivated at the beginning of your relationship.

If you want be my lover, you have to first be my friend!

Talk openly about the things you are not comfortable with in the relationship as well as how both of you can make things better. Talk about the things you love about your partner and also what you love about the relationship. Talk about things that are peculiar to both of you as well as what applies generally.

Endeavour to study the verbal and non-verbal communication of one another.

  1. Play together: when last did you play like a child? My guess is as good as yours. There is a time for everything, a time to work and a time to play!play The beautiful thing about play is that you get to laugh about the silly things that happen and you also get to break the walls that lie between you and your partner. Take on the challenge to play  hide and seek or any other childhood game you remember as often as you can.
  2. Add some adventure to your dates: Going out on a date? picnic dateDo something different each time. Spice your outings with surprises and adventures. If you do more of restaurants and places that require a table for two setting, try going on a picnic for a change. You have to plan properly for this- here is a tip: make a list of all that will be needed for the picnic and divide it into two parts- one will contain things that you will come along with while the other will be a list of what your partner is to come along with. You can also see a movie together at a different cinema, go site seeing or do some other activities that will thrill you and your partner.
  3. Forgive easily: In relationships, unforgiveness is a major issue that can result in building very thick walls between partners. Learn to forgive each other easily. You will always reap the benefits.

In relationships, the first to apologize is the bravest. The first to forgive is the strongest. The first to move forward is the happiest!

  1. Be creative: If you are willing to add more spice to your relationship, then you have to be creative. Do something unexpected for your partner everyday and let it become a part of you. Soon, you’ll notice how much more spicy your relationship will become!Lovesign21

Remember that every good relationship requires effort to be successful. Practice the outlined ideas and share with us your experience and some you have thought of as well.

Give yourself a “Brain Boost” with Mindfulness Meditation and Deep Breathing

Decision making, problem solving, creative thinking, studying, critical thinking and analysis, planning, organizing, are just some of the cognitive processes that are involved in our everyday life. Whether it’s the student who needs to focus for long hours in preparation for an exam, a lawyer who needs to prepare for a court case, a surgeon who is conducting surgery in a few hours, or an accountant who has to pay great attention to detail, our mental or cognitive functions need to be at their peak to avoid errors and to achieve the peak performance.problem

We can be at our best each time and moment in spite of the overwhelming stress and pressure that we face. There are deadlines to meet, targets to reach, grades to attain, cases to win, deals to seal,  projects to initiate and many demands that we place on ourselves which lead to stress.

The impact of stress on your cognitive functions cannot be downplayed. When we are stressed, it’s usually very difficult to think clearly or get involved in tasks without making mistakes. Our memory seems to be poor as high stress levels may lead to poor recall or forgetting information.

Mindfulness Meditation is a tool that can help you improve your mental functioning by combating the effects of stress.

Mindfulness meditation involves focusing on the present moment without a judgmental attitude while observing your thoughts, breathes, emotions and environment. This can be combined with relaxation techniques that serve to control your body’s’ processes and keep you from being stressed. A common relaxation technique is deep breathing.This can help curb anxiety that may occur when in complex situations that may demand for higher other thinking skills. Here are some of the ways “Mindfulness Meditation” can help you increase your cognitive function by a large percentage:

  • Improved focus and concentration: A calmer mind yields better focus and reduced wandering or racing thoughts. Mindfulness Meditation helps you stay focused on the present and this is transferable to other activities. When you need to perform an important task that needs optimum, take some deep breathes.
  • Clear and Smart thinking: When we are stressed and feel overwhelmed by activities and demands at work and home, clear thinking is almost impossible. Our minds are filled with so many things it that makes it difficult to arrive at good decisions or solve day to day problems. With biofeedback, a calm mind can be achieved.
  • Reduced anxiety: Relaxation training coupled with Mindfulness helps reduce anxiety that may impede optimal performance. When worries and anxiety are minimal, you can perform at your best.
