3 Simple Steps to More Quality Time Together!

Are you sick of not having quality time with your significant other? Do you long for a quiet dinner together, but just don’t know how to fit it in? Here are the 3 simple steps to creating more quality time with each other!

Setp 1 – Prioritize It

Your relationship should be priority #1 in your life (yes, even above your kids!*). If you don’t make it #1, you and your significant other are not going to truly feel fulfilled. Making your relationship a priority means:

  1. You commit to spending time with each other.
  2. You commit to making your relationship better.
  3. You prioritize plans with your significant other and don’t break them.

Step 2 – Schedule It

How do I schedule it???? I know, you have your job, kids, dogs to walk, softball practice, dishes in the sink, and laundry to do! First, decide that quality time with your significant other is a priority and start scheduling your life around it instead of the other way around!

  1. Look at your schedule (if you don’t have one, get one!). What can you get rid of, or minimize? Do you have to go to every softball practice? Could you wash dishes as you use them instead of all at once? How much TV do you watch? Are there items you could move to different time slots? Could you go to the gym at lunchtime instead of after work? How could you schedule your life to create more special time with your special lady? Get creative!
  2. Once you have identified time slots, schedule special time in! If you have a half hour, schedule time to sit down and have tea together. If you have an entire evening, schedule a dinner date out on the town (just the 2 of you).
  3. Try to schedule special time together at least 2-3 times each week.

Step 3 – Create It

Schedules are meaningless if you ignore them. Once special time together is on the schedule, commit to following through on your plans. If you need to get a babysitter, get a babysitter. If you need to leave work early, leave work early. Don’t let anything get in your way!

Making your relationship #1 takes effort, but the rewards are well worth it. Don’t let your busy lives take away the connection and intimacy in your relationship. Live the rich, fulfilling life of your dreams – one scheduled date at a time!

*Always take care of your children and give them special time too. But teach them that when you have special time with your significant other, they are to respect that time. Prioritizing your relationship and special time with each other will teach your children to respect other’s space and valuable lessons about their own future relationships.
