Spend Time With Your Partner This Holiday Season

Friday, October 2, 2009
Yes I know the "Holiday Season" hasn't quite started yet, but it is quick upon us. When I go to the stores I already see some of the Christmas decorations already up and for sale.

It was in one of these stores that the idea for this series of posts came upon me. This series of posts being on ways to get away from the seasonal rush and focus on what is the truly the most important, the family.

After this idea came upon me, I started to brainstorm on the best way to organize and present these posts to you. I have settled on, over the next thirteen Saturdays, alternating between posts on spending time between your partner and on spending time with your children. Since it is an odd number of weeks, the final week will be on spending time with your family as a whole.

That being said, on with today's post!

It is important for you and your partner to be connected and on the same page. But with life in general and now the Holiday Season it can be very difficult to find time to do just that.

So my challenge to all of us is to set aside a little time at least every couple of weeks, every week would be better, to take your partner out on a date. Whether it is the movies, a picnic in the park or just an evening walk. The most important thing to do is just spend time with them.

You both need time to decompress and talk to each other about how things are going. Both in your personal lives apart and together. Think of this as part State of the Relationship address and part just continue to get you know each better talk.

Think of this as dating like you used to, before you got "serious". Get dressed up and have some fun. Go dancing if that is what you used to do or just out to eat. Again just spend time with your partner.

I hope that you find this to be of some use. Got any thoughts? Then head over and comment on this article.

Blessed Be!
