In any successful relationship, you’ll find certain routines and rituals that keep the connection strong even when life gets busy, and a couples morning routine can ensure you and yours get the day started off right!
One of the reasons why relationship rituals make for happy couples is that a ritual like a couples morning routine means every morning is a chance to renew your commitment to each other in a sweet and simple way. More than just saying you still choose each other, you are demonstrating it with your intentional actions, and that is a powerful way to start the day together!
If you’re looking for couples morning routine ideas and inspiration, you’ve definitely come to the right place. Personalize the ideas below to make it a perfect fit for you and yours and you’ll have couples morning rituals that will strengthen your relationship for years and years to come!
As simple as it sounds, just taking the time to enjoy your morning coffee, tea, or breakfast together is important! Not only is it lovely to just take the time to sit with each other as you sip your coffee, but preparing your partner’s coffee/tea/breakfast just the way they like it is one of those small actions that have big effects; it shows you pay attention to the little things about your love!
It’s also the perfect time to connect together and share what plans you both have for the day. Keeping each other in the loop is a lovely side effect of a morning coffee ritual, and a great way to show your love.
Leave a Sweet Note or Text Message
If you and yours wake up at different times, that’s okay! You can still make it a sweet couples morning routine to leave each other good morning messages! Whether you are leaving a sweet good morning text for her or a cute good morning message for him, there are tons of fantastic ideas for ways to wish your partner a great day without waking them up when you have to leave!
Research has shown that working out in the morning is often associated with greater focus, better mood, and higher energy levels throughout the day, so consider making it a couples morning routine for you and yours to sweat together!
Whether you decide to lift weights, go for a run, or do some other things that couples can do to make their heart rates go up (hehe!), working out together is a great way to start your day with your significant other, don’t you think?
Shower and Get Ready Together
Especially if you’re adding a morning workout to your couples morning routine, showering together is just a natural next step, isn’t it? Not only will you two be saving water and shaving a few pennies off the water bill for the month, but showering together also creates ample opportunity for all kinds of sweet couples moments!
If showering together doesn’t work, no problem because getting ready together side by side is a lovely morning ritual for couples. Adjust his collar, help her with her necklace clasp, brush away an imaginary bit of lint off their sleeve, any physical gestures like these help us feel cared for and looked out for in a relationship. Plus, it provides the perfect opportunity for a “Lookin’ really good today, babe!” as they finish up!
Even if your couples morning routine doesn’t include much time for you two to spend together, try to fit in some time for intentional physical affection. Time and time again, research has demonstrated the power of physical touch for happiness in relationships, so make it a point to physically express your love with your partner.
There are many ways to express your love physically, including hugs, kisses, back rubs, a lingering touch of the hand, and more. Even if you only have time for a goodbye hug and kiss on your way out the door, make it a point to intentionally embrace each morning so you can both benefit from the release of those feel-good hormones like oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin; isn’t that a fantastic way to see your partner off for the day?
Go Beyond the I Love You
A person can say I love you in a variety of ways, whether it’s verbally, non verbally, through acts of service, etc, so try to get creative and mix it up sometimes! It’s not that the meaning changes when we say those three words every single day to our partner, it’s that sometimes we become a bit desensitized to them and stop feeling the full impact of what that really means.
There are so many clever and cute ways to tell your significant other you love them, so be sure to switch it up occasionally so your partner can really feel the love coming through. Hit them with a sweet I love you message like “you are still my favorite person” or “every day, I find something new to love about you!” Get creative with it and make it a part of your couples morning routine to express your love in a new and interesting way!
When it comes to starting the day off right with your significant other, incorporating a morning routine for couples means that you and yours ensure that you both are feeling the love each and every day. It’s easy to get swept up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but making time for a consistent couples morning routine is a sweet way to let your partner know you always have time for them.
