If you have been in the same relationship for a long time, Valentine’s Day might seem like any other day…but should it be?


How can I spice it up?

  • Be mindful of your partner, give them a generous amount of your time. At times when we are burdened with trying to establish a work-life balance we tend to forget that those who love us are those we take most for granted.
  • Learn to love with your partner’s love language not with yours…What I mean is that at times we can fall into the trap of loving our partner the way we wish we to be loved. Let’s try and make it about them not us.
  • Spice it up in the bedroom: Make an effort to pleasure each other in new ways (obviously with the consent of both)
  • Develop a deep friendship with your partner: Love is sustained not by romance alone but by being there for each other in times of need, solving conflicts and asking forgiveness and following through with your promise


A long-lasting relationship is one that is celebrated and worked on every day of the year. Let this Valentine’s Day be a fresh start…
