August is “National Romance Awareness Month,” so in the spirit of Winning at Home, I have four tips to help you Rekindle the Romance. Sometimes it is just nice to lighten up.
Lighten Up and Laugh!
Getting all stressed-out kills the romance! Research proves that couples that laugh together have more satisfying love lives, because laughter helps reduce stress and creates bonding. So look for some humor in life and love.
2. List Your Lover’s GOOD qualities
When our relationship gets stressed, we tend to focus on everything our mate is doing badly! So write the list of all the things you’ve ever loved about your lover and keep that list where you’ll see it. Better yet – share the list with your loved one – by text, email or any way at all.
3. Learn Something New Together
Learning something new together lets you see your partner in a new light, and that can be very arousing. So it could be a one night cooking class, or some ballroom dancing lessons or how to shoot firearms! I can honestly say that I have never been more impressed with The Sailor then when he was learning how to dance with me on a recent cruise. I also think he fell in love with me all over again when I went with him to the firing range to shoot his guns. Who knew?
4 Light Some Candles – even if you’re just eating fast food.
This tip is especially helpful for the gentlemen who sometimes forget that they need to woo their woman throughout the day! So just the fact that you are deliberately setting a mood goes a long way to kindling some romance.
Remember that romance is what makes a relationship feel special. If you have a special romance tip, feel free to share it below.

Can you really “Text the Romance Back?”
I was going to teach you how to really use your cell phone to create some romance (since it is one of my FAVORITE ways my husband flirts with me) but this guy Michael did a better job explaining it all than I could. In some ways his video drives me nuts, but the product is actually quite helpful. What do you think of his message?
Until next time, keep playing to win and I’ll be here in your corner!
