I hope last week went well, this week, we're kicking it up a notch
Week 2 - Let's Get Physical!
Day 8: Tuesday 1/22 - Hugs
Do you ever feel as though the walls are starting to close in on you and that you could really use a hug? I'm sure your special someone does too. Spend today giving all of the hugs you can. Physical touch is a beautiful thing and this is a great way to start things slow.
Day 9: Wednesday 1/23 - Manicure/Pedicure
This one may seem like it's easier for the ladies, but not necessarily. Offer to give him/her a manicure. It doesn't have to be professional (although if you can do it, do it). For the fellas, offer to paint her toe nails. She knows you're not going to be as good as her nail tech, but the thought and the effort goes far.
Day 10: Thursday 1/24 -Make Out!
Take it back to high school. The goal is not to have sex, the goal is everything but sex. Take your time to enjoy the scenery. When life gets hectic, it is easy to go straight for the goal and miss out on all of the "before". So work on "before" and only before, or at least have the goal of working on the "before".
Day 11: Friday 1/25 -Scalp Massage
Everyone loves it. If you don't, you should immediately schedule an appointment with a doctor because you are missing out and that's just not fair. There are few things as relaxing as a scalp massage. It even works on babies.
**Note: if your significant other just got there hair done, this one isn't going to work for you, repeat day 10
Day 12: Saturday 1/26 - Bath/Shower Time
You may have done it back in the day, or that one time in Cabo, or that one weekend you drunk that whole box of wine. Taking joint shower/baths doesn't have to be reserved for that one time you get away every couple of years. Even if you just have a few minutes when you KNOW the kids are going to be sleep/watching tv/at the neighbors
Day 13: Sunday 1/27 - Hold Hands
Take hold of each others hands when ever you can. Sitting next to each other on the couch, while cooking dinner, at the mall, wherever you are, just grab their hand and enjoy the moment.
Day 14: Monday 1/28 -Massage
Break out the oil, light some candles, turn on whatever music settles your spirit and give them a nice massage. A real one. Not the fake kind you give just to get into another position, but pretend like you're getting paid for it.
Let me know how it's going. Good luck!
