Get Your Wife Back in Love with You! Helpful Advice for Husbands

Your marriage isn’t what it used to be. At one time you and your wife had an undeniable connection. You didn’t doubt for a second how much she adored you. She was always telling and showing you and it felt amazing, didn’t it? Then you two switched from being a couple to being a family when the children arrived. Things naturally changed but when combined with all the stresses of life, your marriage took a back seat. Now you’ve come to the realization that your spouse seems emotionally distant. If you want to get your wife back in love with you, you can definitely do it. Since there’s no time like the present, you can get started on pulling her closer to you again today.

Although it does seem like a daunting task to get your wife back in love, it’s not. At the center of your plan to get her to feel emotionally connected to you again is your knowledge of what made her find you so irresistible to begin with. When you two first met, she was drawn to you. She found you very appealing and if she’s like most women she made sure you knew what she loved most about you. Maybe it was your kind nature or the way you were so selfless. Whatever it was that made her want to be with you back then is what you’re going to focus on now. You have to show your wife that the man she married all those years ago is still very much a part of who you are.

In many marriages the small gestures fall to the wayside when life becomes hectic. If you used to do things that made your wife smile such as bringing her a cup of coffee, or stopping to buy her favorite dessert, do that again now. She’s still the woman you adore and you need to make certain she feels that way every day. If you vow to do one nice thing for her each and every day, you’ll notice her attitude towards you will shift very fast.

Tell her that you love her. This seems very obvious but it’s actually one thing couples often forget to do. Make a point of explaining to your wife just how much she means to you. Be as honest and open as you possibly can be. She needs to hear this in order to know it. Once she feels completely loved by you it will break down the emotional walls she has built around herself and she’ll feel close to you again.

Specific things you do and say can compel your wife to love you more. Saying or doing the wrong thing can actually cause her to feel even more distant from you. You can make your wife fall back in love with you, all over again.

You don’t have to worry about whether your wife is on the brink of asking you for a divorce. You can control the situation and use specific techniques to naturally make her fall hopelessly in love with you.

Changing Nutritional Needs For Elderly Parents

For most of our adult lives, our bodies are predictable machines. Year after year, we fuel them with the same favorite foods, catering to our cravings, confident that the only adverse effect will be an overly full belly. All of that changes, however, as we approach our golden years. With the onset of old age, the standard meals that have been fixtures on our menus for decades can suddenly become health hazards. For me, this became painfully apparent only recently, when I saw my elderly father’s nutritional needs experience a major shift.

When I first made the decision to care for my elderly father more than 10 years ago, I pretty much gave Dad free reign of the kitchen. He ate all of the dishes he’d always enjoyed, including spicy foods and pre-packaged high-sodium meals. But after we contracted the services of Dad’s current private caregiver, I realized I’d been doing him a big disservice by failing to closely monitor his meals.

Based on what I’ve learned about the changing dietary needs of the elderly, I’ve compiled some tips for other baby boomers who are caring for an aging parent. Whenever possible, incorporate these strategies to increase the overall health and well-being of your “patient”:

• Watch the fat. Since elderly people tend to be less active and don’t exercise as much, they start trading muscle tone for added body fat. This can increase their risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. I make sure Dad’s meals don’t contain too much fat, and that he gets some form of physical activity a few times a week.

• Keep it balanced. As our parents age, it’s more important than ever that they get all of the vitamins and nutrients they need-especially calcium, which helps to ensure bone health. Plan a menu that includes all of the food groups: lean meats, fruits and vegetables, milk and dairy, and breads and grains.

• Go dry. Seniors need a steady supply of calcium to prevent bone fragility. Nonfat dry milk is an excellent calcium source, and also contains plenty of vitamins A and D. Use it as a smart milk substitute for most any meal. Dry milk remains fresh for several months when stored in an airtight glass container.

• Limit the sweets. Cookies, cakes, and other fatty desserts are empty-calorie treats with little to no nutritional value. Do your best to reduce the frequency of these treats for your aging patient.

• Meet daily requirements. Older adults need the recommended amounts of essential vitamins and minerals based on their ages and lifestyles. I plan Dad’s meals to make sure he’s getting plenty of zinc, iron, and fiber through lean red meats, dried beans, seasonal produce, and whole-grain breads.

• Control your inventory. It can be tempting to take advantage of discounts by buying in bulk, but then you’ll have to find room to store it all. Plus, the surplus could go to waste if it’s not used before the expiration date. Buy only what you know will get used. When you must purchase foods in larger quantities, divvy it up into individual containers and freeze it to be consumed later.

• Turn one meal into four. Cook for larger portions and then save the leftovers for future meals. Some foods, such as lasagna, meatloaf, and casseroles, are better suited for reheating than others.

• Master smart storage. To extend the freshness of non-refrigerated foods, keep them in tightly sealed glass mason jars. For best results, put them in the freezer for a night before transferring them to the pantry.

This storage solution works well for pasta, rice, flour, cereal, dried milk, and other shelved staples.

With some careful planning and the guidance of a trusted doctor or caregiver, you can help ensure that your aging parent receives fresh, healthy meals that provide both satisfaction and sustenance.
