You know that feeling when you and hubby both have a lot going on. You feel like your mind is occupied all the time. You are on the run to get things done constantly. This doesn’t necessarily overwhelm you it just has become a way of life or it is a busy season. Even when life gets this way we get to take the time and make the effort to continue to connect with our men! I know this is when I start feeling disconnected, yet it is the time that I want to be connected most. That’s why today I am sharing 3 ways to connect with your husband when busy.
The last few weeks things have seemed to be pretty busy. We have been getting prepared for Miss M to start Pre-K and Little Sis has dropped to one nap. Which means our schedule has been shifting, extra errands and things to prepare. Along with some work projects. I know everyone has their own reason and seasons when life gets busy. But what I do know is that we all come to a time that feels this way. And it can be easy to feel disconnected with our husbands.
Here are 3 ways to connect with your husband when busy:
1. Eat Together– We must eat! Find at least on time a day that you can sit down and eat together. Use this time to catch up on the day or the previous day. Don’t rush the time, but instead enjoy it. For us it is dinner, although breakfast or lunch may work better for you.
2. Quality Time– Make room for quality time at least weekly. Even if you have to schedule it as an appointment! This last weekend we were driving two hours one way to see family so I knew we would get some quality time and conversation in. We both enjoyed it greatly and it fit into our schedule of what we were already doing.
3. Communicate– Sometimes when things get busy when we finally do get to sit down together for dinner or that small chunk of quality time all we want is quiet. Understandable. However, enjoy your quiet in the car or shower. Take advantage of this time to tell your husband what is going on. Tell him your struggles and excitements. Ask him his. When things are busy a lot happens, but we often forget to share because things are moving so fast.
While we are busy and it seems like days are just flying by make sure to connect with the love of your life! I know I don’t want to wake up a year, three years, ten years from now wondering how we got there. I want to know that I intentionally spent time with Ryan. That I made an effort for us to connect all the while doing these other lovely things in life! Choose just one out of the three ways to connect with your husband when busy to implement this week.
Until Next Time- Truly Love,
