  1. The first technique is visualization. This involves picturing your ideal relationship in your mind. What would you like to see in your relationship? By visualizing ideal interactions, you can get deeply in touch with your own heart. So ask yourself who you want to be in the relationship and how you can bring your best self to each of your interactions
  2. Another way to deepen love in your relationship is by practicing gratitude. Be thankful for the things that your partner does for you, no matter how small they may seem. This will help you to focus on the positive aspects of your relationship and appreciate all that your partner does for you. You can even write a thank-you note or send a
  3. Learn the signs of transference so that when you notice them, you can squash them. Transference, according to Merriam-Webster, is “the redirection of feelings and desires and especially of those unconsciously retained from childhood toward a new object.”
  4. The fourth way to increase love in your relationship is through physical touch. This can be anything from holding hands to cuddling to sex. Physical touch releases oxytocin, which is the “love hormone” that helps bonding and attachment. So make sure to schedule time for physical affection with your partner!
  5. The final way to deepen love in your relationship is by communicating effectively. This means being able to listen to your partner and understand their needs. It also means being able to express your own needs clearly. Effective communication requires patience and practice, but it is worth it in the long run.
  6. A great practice is journaling together. Writing forces you to slow down and think. You can relive past experiences, and amazing dates, and even find areas where you can communicate to improve your relationship. Journaling is a great practice for any individual, but when you do it as a couple about your relationship, you’ll find feelings begin to grow deep roots.
