Have you been feeling disconnected from your partner? What have you and your partner done to connect in the last week? Some couples use date nights or getaways as a time to connect, but it is also important to be intentional about connecting with each other in between these. Here are 3 things that you and your partner can do to feel more connected on a daily basis:
- Recognize how important the small connections are. Be present, notice, and accept your partners’ bids for closeness.
- Understand each other’s love maps: ask questions, remember the answers, and keep asking questions every day.
- Build a culture of appreciation and respect. Notice when your partner does things that are important to you and acknowledge these out loud.
