Of course, summer vacations are a great opportunity to get away from the proverbial Rat Race - but we invite our happy couples to take this a step further.
How often do you find yourself thinking about work when you are home with your Partner?
Are you checking your email while your kids are at the playground?
Do you sneak in a work call here & there?
Doing these things takes your focus away from your Partner - and they NOTICE! They may say its not a big deal, but trust us from married folk who have been there - it IS a big deal. Of course, no one is perfect and things do happen but this month, put your focus on your Partner instead! Check yourself and make sure you are truly present when together. Change your way of thinking for one month and you won't regret it. This is a daily chore for some - so, keep the focus. A few tips to help you:
- Sticky Notes! Greatest invention ever - even better than those strings around the finger! Leave yourself notes around the house to remind yourself of what you SHOULD be thinking about when home.
- Enlist your Partner's help. Ask them to tell you - or ring a bell - when they see you wandering off inside your mind somewhere and away from him/her!
- Change your schedule - whatever works, but switch things up somehow to free yourself from old routines.
Whatever you do, we know it will be great and your Partner will love you for it even more - like that's possible, right??!!!
