Allocate ME time. Okay, while quality time together is important.. So is time apart, that’s right, good old ME time. Just because you don’t have access to your usual outlets such as that hour at the CrossFit gym or yoga with your girlfriends doesn’t mean you can’t create space for yourself. Follow a yoga workout on YouTube, make time to meditate🧘🏻♀️, read a book, give yourself a face mask – do something just for yourself. In other words, “TREAT YO-SELF…By yourself.” We’ve noticed that if we take time to treat ourselves to self-care, we come back to the relationship with more energy. And guys, it might be time to create a small man cave, organize your garage or office so that you have a place to get away when you need some space to breathe.
Plan Ahead. It’s nice to have something to look forward to, but right now – we have no idea when this quarantine is going to end. Life is going to be a little different for the near future. That doesn’t mean you can’t plan “events” Add dates and “events” to your calendar so you have something to look forward to like a movie night, or stand-up show on Netflix. Also lots of musicians are playing live sets for free. For example, we put a date night on the calendar for a comedy special with Tom Segura. We changed out of our sweatpants, made popcorn, opened up a bottle of wine, and pretended we were at a comedy club. Having something on your calendar will help you focus on that rather than stressing about the news.
