If you’re dealing with a serious time-crunch burdening your bonding time, we have some simple ways to make sure you see each other despite hectic schedules.
Rather than working out separately all the time, try to find a way to get active together at least once a week. Even if you both go to different gyms or like different activities, make one workout a week a joint sweat session. Go jogging together, go for an extra-long walk after dinner or take him to one of your favorite classes as a way to bond as you burn calories.
You’d be surprised at just how much time you do have together that ends up being eaten up by gadgets. So one of the easiest ways to build in more couple time is to give the tech toys a break. Whether it’s 20 minutes or an hour, come up with a suitable amount of time to put your phones and laptops away and just focus on each other.
It might not sound like any fun, but hitting the grocery store or garden center together can be an easy way to spend more time together. Not to mention, any chore you do together will be more enjoyable than tackling it solo.
No, it’s not a romantic dinner date at a fancy restaurant, but if you both work in the city or relatively close to one another, use your lunch break to catch up. Meet at a spot equidistant from your workplaces and enjoy a quick meal together. Even doing this once a week is a great way to stay connected and feel like you get to see each other regularly.
If all else fails, you might want to consider hiring a babysitter once or twice a month (or asking your parents to watch the kids) so you can ensure some alone time. Or, hire a cleaning service so you’re not using potential together time to sweep and mop.
