Does date night take a back burner in your house?
It has in ours. Mainly due to work schedules, children’s activities and poor planning. Not saying we don’t spend time together.
But when it comes down to it there are only 24 hours in the day and it appears we have over scheduled ourselves and I don’t think we are alone.
When was the last time you planned a date with your partner?
Connecting with your partner is important.
In today’s economy where one partner works nights and the other days. Or one partner has two jobs and the other is a stay at home parent.
Finding time to connect and share in your relationship is hard. Taking time to connect is important and needs to be done with intention.
Make planning intentional.
Bring the excitement back to your relationship. Set a date once a week, once every two weeks, an overnighter once a month. Figure out what works with your schedule, plan it and book the babysitter.
Setting a plan with intention means that you plan to spend time together. No more last minute scheduling, no more months passing by with no time and no date. Be intentional with your relationship.
Being intentional and spending time with your partner doesn’t have to cost a dime.
How does a gourmet picnic at the lake sound? Or coffee on the patio and conversation. You can have an amazing time with your spouse and not spend a dime.
All it takes is a bit of creativity and time.
10 great no spend ways to connect with your partner:
- A gourmet picnic at the lake
- Cooking a meal together
- Movies and chilling on the couch
- Coffee on the patio and conversation
- A do it yourself couples massage
- Go for a hike or a bike ride
- A walk around the park
- Take a class together
- Explore a local museum or art exhibit
- Go camping
Living, leading and spending time.
Spending time with your partner isn’t about the dollar amount on the receipt from the over priced dinner and movies. It’s about the time you spend together. The time you spend nourishing your relationship.
Living and leading with intention will help you connect with your partner. Plan a date, write it on the calendar, schedule a babysitter or opt for an evening in after the kids have gone to bed.
Celebrate what brought you together.
