The Experiment: Day 2

*I am participating in The K-Y Intimacy experiment and will be blogging about my thoughts and experiences during this process.*

***

The first part of the experiment for day 2 was all about reflecting on the connections made with your partner outside the bedroom.

Our first task at hand was to determine how often we engage in certain physical activities.

Such as kissing, holding hands, saying I love you, complimenting each other, emailing each other, checking in on one another throughout the day, doing chores together, participating in mutual hobbies….etc.

After discussing these different activities we felt pretty darn good about our relationship as we pretty much do them all together, (except I’m an email person and he is not). We’ll work on that! 🙂

I’ve been told that we may still be in the “love bubble” but I like to think that kissing, holding hands, and complimenting each other is something we will always do. It’s been over two years and we are still going strong!

According to the K-Y Experiment Intimacy handbook, touching your lover is very important. Positive touches (even just holding hands and kisses throughout the day) actually cause the brain to produce the chemical oxytocin, which in turn helps to create a sense of emotional intimacy, and also helps relieve stress and improve mood.

Bring on the positive touches! Anything to relieve stress and improve mood is exactly what I need these days.

So far, J. Alabama and I are just enjoying these little moments during the experiment where we just get to focus on one another.
