With it being February, I thought it would be fitting to do a quick podcast on som tips to help you stay connected to your spouse or significant other for that fact.
Often times when you are working hard at something, you can become distracted and your spouse/family may get left behind in some cases.
You may not be anywhere near becoming divorced, but without conscious awareness of how your mate feels, you may slowly start down that trajectory.
That isn't to say that you should never have fights, but taking precautions can truly payoff in the long run.
3 Tips To Help you Stay Connected
Although there are many more out there, here are 3 tips to help make sure that you spend time together.
- Block Off Your Calendar For Each Other. This is one of the best ways to allow you to say no to other things and to mentally focus on each other. My wife and I use a shared Google calendar to help with this process, just to make sure that we do not commit to something instead of each other.
- Schedule Date Night. Using the calendar concept in #1, make time to have some nights off with each other that are really just about having fun. Even if you are on a tight budget, you can still find ways to make this a possibility.
- Plan For Bigger Getaway's Together. Whether it is looking forward to a relaxing vacation far away in some tropical place or just having a weekend away together, making time for extended getaways for just the two of you is very important.
Ultimately, you need to make time for each other and utilizing some of these tips can greatly assist you in the process.
