2.You’re not getting intimate with your partner as often as you used to.

According to Mike Dow, Psy.D., Ph.D., author of Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think, Act & Be Happy, when you have a lot of things on your plate, making love is the last thing on your mind.

If you were used to enjoying the time between the sheets with your significant other and now you’re not doing it anymore, maybe because you prefer to stay on your phone, watch TV or simply go to sleep earlier, it’s a clear sign that stress is affecting your relationship.

As Julia Breur, PhD, a licensed marriage and family therapist with a private clinical psychotherapy practice in Boca Raton, Florida has explained, even though it’s normal to not feel the same energy after the honeymoon phase of the relationship is gone, those moments are still vital in keeping you and your partner connected.

So even when you don’t feel like doing it, make sure you make your partner feel loved in other ways. Kissing and hugging can be a great way to show your affection, and if you feel a little cuter, try holding hands while watching something on the TV.
