1. Kiss more.
One of the early danger signs of a marriage slipping into autopilot is that the couples stops kissing. A kiss releases a powerful and natural chain reaction of hormones designed by God to bring pleasure and bonding between two people. If this isn’t happening as much as it used to in your marriage, first off, check your breath! Next, create kissable moments often.
2. Find free marriage-building resources “On Demand”
There has never been a time in human history where we’ve had so many free resources at our fingertips. The internet has opened up a world of good stuff that we can read, watch and consume in real time whenever we like. I’ll give you a free hookup to add to your On Demand library right now.

3. Go on a walk.
For Ashley and me, some of our best conversations have happened on long walks. It’s a great way to get some exercise and build up our relationship at the same time. Find a good spot and go walking. Every step you take together will literally be moving you forward in your marriage.
4. Write a love note.
In our digital era, handwritten notes have become a thing of the past, but they’re still a powerful way to communicate your love. Take the time to write a note to your spouse and leave it someplace where they’ll find it. When they open it up and read it, it will make their day.
