As the initial excitement of the honeymoon phase starts to wind down, settling into a more comfortable rhythm with your partner can be just as gratifying. However, it's all too easy for that comfort to eventually evolve into boredom. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to overcome boredom in your relationship and reignite the passion. As long as both partners are willing to put in a bit of effort, spicing things up can be a really fun way to reconnect with your bae. And while it might be frightening to acknowledge that the sparks have died down, tackling the issue head-on is key.
According to Daniel Sher, clinical psychologist and a consultant for the Between Us Clinic, many couples start to feel bored with a relationship once they've transitioned out of the initial discovery phase. "This is typically replaced by a feeling of safety and predictability — fertile ground for boredom to grow in," Sher previously told Elite Daily. "Safety and predictability are important, but it’s possible to experience this while also having a relationship that feels enlivening and exciting." So, if you've noticed the dynamic between you and bae hasn't been as fulfilling as it used to be, the good news is all hope is not lost. Here are some ways to avoid letting your relationship become too stale.
