Romance No Matter How Busy You Are
Between work, hobbies, family and friends, when was the last time that you and your significant other had a real date night together? And I don't mean Netflix and chill. Brit.Co has suggested ways to make time for romance around both of your busy schedules.
- Designate some device-free time together which can be harder than it sounds in this technology-dependent era that we're in. "Phubbing" is a term that couples are guilty of which means "phone snubbing behavior". Being in the same room, but both being on your phones the whole time, is not considered quality time together.
- Celebrate anniversaries even if you think that it's silly because that is guaranteed time together and a good reminder of your love for your partner.
- Go to bed at the same time together which, depending on schedules, can be tough if you work a different shift from one another. However, you miss out on opportunities to connect and unwind together if you go to sleep at different times.
It is easy to forget that your relationship still needs to be tended to if you've been together for years, but you can't let yourself take for granted all that your relationship has given you.
