Quality time isn’t just being in the same room together either. It’s the time where two people can sit and talk, enjoy each other’s company and strengthen your relationships. This sometimes means that you will need to turn off the television, give your partner your undivided attention and actually speak to each other.
Where to Start
Go for a walk. Grab your partner’s hand and talk about all the things that you would like, or need, to talk about. It’s an inexpensive way to build your relationship and solve any problems that need to be solved.
Go out to dinner. When I say this, I mean go out to a restaurant and sit down and talk to your loved one. Tune out the noise and commotion from everyone else and pretend that you are just getting to know the other person and you want to hear every word they say. Sit next to each other or hold hands from across the table.
Learn something new together. Both men and women can enjoy doing things with their hands. Take a class to learn how to build or create something that you don’t already know. This also applies to other things: dancing, cooking, gardening, a new sport, etc.
Go camping. Take a weekend and spend your time alone. Lay out a blanket and watch the sun set, the stars in the sky and possibly even the sun rise again! Free yourself from distractions and just have fun. If you have children and can’t get away for the weekend with just the two of you, bring them with. Make it a family trip where everyone learns how to get along and have fun without the computer, television or cell phones.
Spiritual building. If you are a couple, or family, that follows a religious belief, make sure that you take time to pray together.
Discuss your goals. Sit down and talk to your partner about your goals and dreams for your lives. Maybe you want to start your own business. Maybe you have been thinking about relocating. This is the time for the two of you to start discussing things and making plans.
