If you want to make the most of love, you need to do your homework! Try Dr. Laura Berman's weekly homework assignment, designed to help you improve your relationships—both in and out of the bedroom.
So far, we've opened the door to better health, happiness and better relationships. This week, in honor of Valentine's Day, we're focusing on pleasuring your palate by making a romantic meal fun and sexy.
Get ready to pleasure your palate! Turn any dinner on any day (if not Valentine's Day) into an erotic experience. Heighten each other's sensuality and arouse your sexual response with lots of aphrodisiacs. Focus on the act of preparing a meal together and take your time! Allow yourselves to be messy, use your hands instead of cutlery and feed each other. Set up a sexy picnic on the living room floor instead of the dining table. Toast each other. Savor every texture, every flavor, and most of all, savor each other. Don't think about what's to happen after—make the meal your sensual connection.
Stay on Track with Dr. Berman's 100% Challenge for 2011:
Step 1: Focus on health and fitness (goal = exercise 6 days a week).
Step 2: Assess the condition of your relationships. Are they as fulfilling as you need them to be? If not, take action wherever necessary.
Step 3: Get happy. Make pleasure fit into your schedule. Repeat each step—week by week—until you have achieved the life you want.
Remember, it's a gradual process towards making changes that will last a lifetime.
