I read a lot of blogs… A lot of blogs and once in a while I find things I like to share. This week it’s the 15 second kiss from the blog fierce marriage, the challenge is pretty much what it sounds like… Kiss your spouse for 15 seconds every day for a week.

15 seconds is long enough that you can’t fake it, it forces you to connect with each other. I find that most couples do kiss, however, usually it’s no more than a few seconds. We burn 15 seconds all the time without even thinking about it. We play games on our phones, watch silly commercials, work around the house, you name it – 15 seconds is a short amount of time for most of us. However, when you’re kissing and consciously thinking about it, 15 seconds seems to be a lot longer. And that’s a good thing!

Some of the things you will learn are that it’s nearly impossible to kiss for an extended period of time and not feel closer to your spouse. It refreshes and energizes people, and it’s a gateway to more intimacy for couples. Don’t ever neglect whatever builds intimacy between you and your spouse, maybe it isn’t kissing for everyone and if you and your spouse both enjoy something else, then do that!

I encourage people to take the challenge try it for yourself, whether you and your spouse are constant kissers or if you’ve just forgotten what it’s like to kiss, I highly recommend giving this exercise a shot. Feel free to go longer than 15 seconds… It certainly couldn’t hurt

Pucker up!
