Building A More Meaningful Relationship with Your Spouse When Distractions Happen!
Distractions are part of our daily lives. Sometimes they come when you least expect them. Like when you’re having dinner with your spouse and children and viola the phone rings, you answer, and then you find yourself taken away from your family dinner time. Or, you’re about to sit down and watch a movie with your spouse but before you do you decide to send one last email that takes longer than you thought. However these show up, distractions happen.
Distractions themselves are not the enemy. It’s how we handle them when they happen and the level to which the distractions take us away from each other.
Distractions & Building More Meaning Relationship with Your Spouse
It might be ok to send an email right before you spend time watching a movie with your spouse, for example. But, if you see that it will take longer than you thought or leads you to checking other emails and getting lost opening and responding to messages, then, it’s important to make the decision in that moment to choose to put that on hold so that you can engage in your relationship.
When we start to become aware of all of the distractions that have the potential to pull us away from being present with our spouse, we can begin to gain control over those distractions. We can begin to make decisions from an empowered place.
Taking Daily & Mindful Steps Toward More Meaning Relationship
It’s these steps toward your relationship that matter. Steps toward the behavior you want to have in your relationship. Steps toward each other rather than away.
