How to be romantic amidst a busy life

Nowadays, we’re all very busy. Sometimes romance gets squeezed out of our schedules and disappears in the face of all the other stuff there is to do. So here are a three great ways to jazz up a romance amidst a busy life:

1. Prioritize. If having a healthy relationship and a life full of good strong love is important to you, cut the less important stuff out. And, the essential piece here is, make it real by putting romance into your calendar. We may think we don’t need to be reminded to be romantic or make time for sex, but the reality is, we all need to be reminded to do the fun and pleasurable stuff.

2. Take regular vacations with a focus on romance. This doesn’t mean spending a lot of time or money. Alicia and I go on vacation at least once a month, often to a place just minutes outside of San Francisco for the weekend. A couple of days a month devoted fully to romance (leave your cell phones, laptops, and kids home!) can do wonders for your love life.

3. Maintain chemistry. There are many ways to add romance to a relationship that don’t take up a lot of time, or even need you to be in the same place as your partner. Having flowers delivered, leaving a note behind before you leave for work, sending a sexy text on your lunch break, are all examples of easy things to do that can create and maintain chemistry and polarity between a couple, especially in the middle of a busy work day or week.
