Talk Openly 

A lot of distance can be created when both parties are aware something is amiss, but nobody is acknowledging it. Your routines might be going to bed tired, leaving early for work, and never really speaking about the issue at hand. Reconnecting can be as simple as addressing the issue head-on. Tell your partner that you feel distant and need to reconnect. Ask your partner what you can do to help them feel more connected. Simply addressing the issue youve both been feeling can help to build a bridge between the two of you. 

Listen and Empathize

When youre feeling disconnected in a relationship, its easy to focus on your own feelings. However, for reconnection, its also important to listen to your partner when they discuss things with you and empathize with them. This can help them to feel more supported, and vice versa. Simply listening and understanding can help to feel more connected.
