S: Spiritual Intimacy
When we truly embrace the miracles of life, we are in a state of vulnerability. When we open up that vulnerability and feel truly seen and heard, the closeness it creates between two humans is one of the tightest bonds you can create. Sometimes our deepest core values and our missions come to life with these experiences and when you share them with your partner, the connection feels so raw and real.
Spiritual Intimacy can develop through activities you do together, however it is a direct reflection of your journey inside as well. The spiritual activities are external, while your spiritual values are internal and part of the core of who you are.
P: Physical Intimacy
Physical Intimacy is being together and affectionate with your partner, where each individual feels seen, known and connected. Physical Intimacy means so much more than just “heading to your bedroom”, it includes everything from hugging, eye contact, holding hands, cuddling on the couch and sexual intercourse. Physical intimacy creates such a deep emotional connection and that connection can be strengthened even when you are touched both romantically and otherwise.
There are so many forms of physical intimacy and each form has the ability to connect you to your partner on levels that are hard to explain. Physical intimacy can bring you closer to your partner, it gives you potential for fun, it can help you feel satisfied and it certainly has the capability of helping one feel valued and accepted. Physical intimacy even impacts mental and emotional health. Having this deep connection gives people a sense of trust and commitment. Physical intimacy has the power to lead us towards feelings of safety, comfort and love.
Recreational intimacy is all about being active together. It’s about finding things you each love to do and doing them together. It involves the two of you intentionally making time for one another. The experiences you share create memories and memories last a lifetime.
Recreational intimacy is about dating your spouse/partner and ,the importance of making time for date night. It does not have to be fancy and it does not have to be a huge financial investment. It’s about being intentional, being creative and being spontaneous. It’s about investing in one another.
Those couples that play together…stay together. DATE your spouse.
I: Interpersonal Communication
When we talk abut communication and relationships, one of the most common things we hear is…”Communication is the key to a happy, healthy relationships.”
But, what is communication? Are we really communicating or are we just exchanging information?
Communicating in your relationship is about connecting to that individual. It is about speaking a language that both of you understand. It can be verbal, it can be written and it can be physical. If you are saying something, make sure you are conveying what you are trying to say, don’t expect your partner to guess how you feel.
Say what you mean and mean what you say!!
N: Nutrition and Well-Being
Well-Being is an active state of health in which we move toward balancing our physical, social and emotional health.
Fall in love with caring for yourself first…in your mind, in your body and in your spirit.
Physical Health- nutrition and exercise: we have only one body
Social Health- surround yourself with people/couples that lift you up
Emotional Health- SELF LEADERSHIP
T: T.E.A.M. (Time, Education, Attitude, Money)
TEAM- your partner is your ultimate teammate in the game of life. You must have their back!
Time: Quantity time versus Quality time
Education: Knowledge is POWER
Attitude: Attitude is everything. Choose to be grateful. Choose to be optimistic. Choose to focus on what can be accomplished.
Money: Marriage is a partnership (you are a TEAM). Work together when it comes to your finances.
