It’s easy to be stuck in a busy lifestyle and lose focus towards what’s really important to you. We often become too comfortable and lack any effort to show love, romance and appreciation. It slowly becomes harder to express our emotions until we forget. However, showing compassion and being more romantic towards your wife is easier than you think. Impress your wife with these 9 simple gestures and you’ll wonder why you didn’t do them sooner.
1. Give her compliments
Don’t wait for your wife to ask you how she looks; take the initiative to give her a compliment. Think about some new compliments that you’ve never said to her. She will notice your attentiveness and it’ll make her feel great about herself.
2. Share the load and do the house chores
Nobody enjoys doing the house chores and when you are doing it on a daily basis, it can be repetitive and physically demanding trying to keep up with the amount of tasks required to be accomplished. Share the load, many hands make light work. Think about some of the chores she does on a regular basis and surprise her by getting them done before she gets to it. It may even be worth hiring a cleaner once a week to keep on top of chores, here is a comparison website.
3. Maintain your own appearance
Being married shouldn’t mean putting in less effort. Think about the effort you put in on your first date together, how you took pride in the clothes you put on and the personal hygiene standards you had in place. Wow your wife by dressing a little nicer, eating healthier and taking steps to look after your body.
4. Say I love you
Your wife may or may not know how much you love her, by expressing your love through these 3 words is a great way to ensure she knows how you feel and can make her feel even more loved. Everyone loves hearing these 3 words because it makes us feel important, appreciated and mostly, feel loved.
5. Meaningful hugs
When was the last time you hugged your wife? Probably not too long ago, but when was the last time you gave her a deep meaningful hug, 20 seconds that is. This is a great way to reconnect, give your wife a 20 second hug each morning and clarify what is really important, everybody has 20 seconds.
6. Plan a date
Make an effort to surprise your wife by planning a fancy date, being married doesn’t mean dates have to stop. Women love it when men take charge, so make a reservation at a restaurant she likes and formally ask her out on an official date. Whatever the plans are, she will love the effort and appreciate the time you have taken out of your busy work schedule to make time for her.
7. Connect with meaningful conversation
This is especially important for families with young children where the wife can spend most of their time dealing with tantrums and mommy duties. Women are social human beings and crave for interaction, enjoy conversing with other adults on a deep emotional level. After the children are put to bed, turn off the phone and make a cup of tea for your wife and engage in conversation.
8. Send her a text
It is the little things that she notices. Sending a text in the middle of the day to ask her how she is lets her know that you are thinking of her. She will enjoy a surprising text to break up her day.
9. Be spontaneous and surprise her
We can all get a little too comfortable after marriage and show less effort towards each other. Make it a goal to give her a surprise every 6 months, book into a day spa and enjoy a day out together or send her some flowers out of the blue to let her know how much you love her.
