🥰WORTH || THE || READ🥰Let’s talk about ROMANCE & what everyone’s been doing to keep it ALIVE while practicing social distancing & being under “Quarantine.” Regardless of whether you have kids or not, these last few months have been distressing for so many around the globe. As the weeks turned to months throughout this pandemic, I worried this would have an effect within my marriage. Don’t get me wrong, Jason & I have a solid marriage, but a global pandemic is sure to cause stress in any household. So I thought, “What can we do to keep the romance alive?” Aside from the VERY obvious, which by the way boosts your immune system and lowers stress levels! Here is a list of a few things we’ve done to keep the romance alive all under quarantine with kids. To be honest, I think we may keep doing it even after this pandemic is over! •
• A fun way to keep a spark alive is challenge one another to a COOK-OFF! Keep the spark alive with some friendly competition that even the kids can get it on. Once the kids are in bed, you & your partner can whip up dessert! 😉
• Take a trip down memory lane & pull out some old photos! It’s always fun to reminisce about the early days of your family & relationship! •
•Turn the living room into a personal theater! Decorate the room with lights, pillows, and blankets, make popcorn and grab some candy to snack on while your family watches a show or movie together. And once bedtime comes along for the kids, you and your partner can stay up to watch something a bit more romantic.
•Lastly, this is something I always make a point to do every day is practice gratitude for one another & think about the quality of the one-on-one time spent together versus quantity. Try & Determine what low lift activity you & your partner can do together, even if it’s just enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning before your remote workday. Take this time to talk through what’s on your mind, simply hold your partner's hand, & reassure each other that you are in this together. - 2 minutes ago
