Intimacy After Children
Marriage before and after kids can seem like two entirely different worlds, but with intentionality and mindfulness it doesn’t have to be that way.
To help alleviate some of the feelings of loss of time with your spouse, try these three tips and see which ones resonate in your relationship.
Re-think Date Night. Try day dates or even family dates, picking a location that allows you to do something fun together and connect.
Try A Mindful Morning Routine. Set the alarm clock five or ten minutes early and spend some extra time cuddling. Or if your routines are different sacrifice some sleep a few times a week to have a slow breakfast together.
Get Away Together. Send the children to Grandma’s house, get a sitter or take them with you and get a room with a sleeper sofa. The children can sleep there while you and your spouse enjoy the rest of the hotel room.
It’s the same with intimacy as it is with most things; where there’s a will, there’s a way. It simply has to be important enough to get creative and make it happen.
I’d love to know how you make quality time with your significant other a priority.
