In today’s world maintaining a satisfied relationship requires planning and commitment. With everyone’s lives so busy, it is not automatic anymore to have time to nurture and enjoy our spouses/partners.
Just like a project, you need to set aside time to plan activities that you do as a couple. This creates shared memories that build and strengthen a relationship-the more you have the better the relationship withstands hard times.
Commitment is another important component in building stronger relationship. You must commit to sharing of yourself with the other, not just in activities but of yourself as in your thoughts and feelings.
But you say “we don’t have time for all of this” Then make the time. When something is really important to you, you actually find time and energy for it.
· Start by sitting together with your daily planners or calendar and find 1 to 2 hours a week.
· Choose an activity that you would both enjoy doing.
· Pencil it in your planner/calendar
· Get ready for the event
· Do It and have fun
This is what relationship coaching is all about. Helping you find the goal you want, set the strategies to get there and then follow through with actions.
