Are you tuned-in to when your spouse needs some free time to him/herself?
As much as we love our family, most people still need some time alone. This is time to connect with one’s self to reenergize and regroup.
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR SPOUSE: does s/he need some time to catch up on stuff or just relax? Figure out how you can give him/ her that gift of time – by taking over some obligations or chores. Wake up early one day, go to sleep later, order dinner, offer to run the errand.
If you add up the hours in both of your day, you’ll have 48 hours (24+ 24). Figure out how to give the gift of some of your time to relieve some of your spouse’s load. And you’ll get it back some other time.
