It’s springtime again and the flowers are blooming, the trees and grass are green and everything is pretty. And because it is just a right season, springtime brings many opportunities to brighten up our lives. Take energy from the signs of new life all around us and use this energy to revisit goals which may have been set at the start of the year or to take a more positive look at challenges ahead. Let negative thoughts and emotions subside with winter. Go forward embracing a positive, colourful, exciting and new perspective on life and spring will reward you with more energy from the world and people around you.
Going for walks, spending time at the beach or going on a romantic picnic are some of the many ways to brighten up your life. The positive new energy you’ll derive can lift your spirits and re-invigorate your relationships.
All relationships need some care and attention from time to time and spring provides a great chance for forging a deeper connection with those you love or for taking a relationship to the next level.

Here are some experts’ tips to spring-clean your relationship successfully:

- Date each other (again): Make a point of keeping at least an evening a week just for the two of you, no matter what.
- Reflect on the good times: Relishing the good times is a perfect turn-on. Look at old photos, play your favourite songs you used to listen to or visit a place where you hung out.
- Rekindle the romance: In long-term relationships, you need to consciously create romance to counteract everyday stresses. Think about sensuality and ambiance like you used to, from scents to clothes to music.
- Say how you feel: You know you love each other, but you still need to say it. When you look at your partner, think what your love for him or her and tell them.
- Surprise compliments make us feel valued: An unexpected note on the bathroom mirror or preparing your partner his or her favourite meal can spark the romance.
