In this episode of The Intimate Marriage Podcast, Alexandra Stockwell, MD talks about the importance of personal development in reviving the spark and reigniting emotional, sensual, and erotic intimacy in a relationship. Many couples face the challenge where they may feel disconnected, frustrated, and not fully alive in their relationship, hindering them from creating intimacy in their relationship. While many believe that external solutions like buying new lingerie, planning a perfect date, or going on a vacation will solve their problems, these temporary arrangements are not enough.
External arrangements such as vacations, buying new lingerie, or shaving your legs will not revive a relationship. Personal development and being self-aware, honest, authentic, present, and accepting of yourself and your partner are essential to creating a successful relationship.
