Summer is all about rest, relaxation, and some much needed time away from home. Now that it’s winding down, we all need to set up a game plan for how we will tackle this next school year (if you have children). In between parent teacher meetings, busy workdays, and traffic jams, how will you stay levelheaded? And what compromises are you willing to make to keep your relationship with your partner steady and nurturing?
It is time to up the ante in regards to the personal effort we put into each day. We believe that for couples to be able to enjoy each other and make the most out of their relationship, there needs to be enough time for fun, downtime, and peaceful moments with just the two of you.
There are so many options. How about you run the bath for your spouse with a candle or two when he/ she gets home from work? Let them know how much you care about their mental and emotional well-being when the going gets rough. Or for a more active approach to quiet time, you two can set up a fire in the back yard and watch the stars at night. Sometimes just taking a breath and enjoying the silence of the night is all you need to wind down and refresh.
We’re not here to tell you what to do. However, we want you to know that you have our permission to be selfish with your partner! Make togetherness a priority! I’m sure you would agree that your partner is way more valuable than a career or a schedule in the grand scheme of things.
But if you do want us to tell you what to do, here are some ideas for reconnecting among the hustles:
These are certainly not all the things you can do; there are thousands of other ideas. Get creative!
We hope you enjoy your quality time and hold on to its importance in your day-to-day life, especially among the hustle and bustle of this thing called life!
