Want to know what foot rubs have to do with emotional intimacy in marriage?
I was on Ed Tyll’s national radio show a few days ago and he really zoned in on foot rubs and intimacy (emotional and physical) as ways to connect spouses.
There were three tips for how to connect regularly with your spouse:
- Foot rubs, especially with essential oils (I personally love doTERRA oils)
- Weekly pre-planned “catch up and cuddle” sessions. Ideally this is a physically intimate date, but that depends on where each couple is in their marriage.
- Watching a show together with a “no interruptions” rule. By this I mean, turn off the phone, lock the door, and put the kids to bed if you have kids. It’s just the two of you sharing the show.
He also asked me about how I got to be so interested in marital connection, so a short version of my story is at around 12 minutes. Click here to listen to the interview.
Ed is really enthusiastic and fun to listen to. I got a big kick out of doing this interview with him, especially when he announced his single status and told any female listeners who were interested in dating him that he loves the ideas we were discussing!
Hopefully, you find the interview to be interesting and hear some good tips that you can start applying today.
To your marriage!
