20 YEARS OF LEARNING SERIES
One of the major reasons why alot of couples feel distant from each other and somewhat start to feel like room mates with their partner is because they underestimate the Power & the need for TOUCH! A.k.a “gumbody”
Think of your bodies as magnets, without constant magnetism, it looses its power overtime. Constant magnetism ‘aka Gum-bodi keeps the magnet potent.
Everytime there’s physical touch, your brain releases oxytocin, known as bonding hormone, this stimulates the release of other feel-good hormones such as dopamine & serotonin. The moment the Gum-bodi stops, you know what happens right? Exactly!
This is why i always advise couples to sleep on the same bed, just the mere fact that your body touches each other is healthy enough.
I mean, Remember when you were dating, you were inseparable, you will hold hands, cuddle & smuggle, steal little hugs here and there and you felt so in love and so in sync with this person and then suddenly you get married, and everything seem to have change, why? You were more intentional then, than you are now.
If you rarely reach out and touch each other, or have reached the point where you only have “special occasion sex” on (birthdays, anniversaries and vacations), it may be time to address the elephant in the bedroom: because You’re well on your way to a sexless, passionless marriage.
