I was perusing around Twitter today and stumbled across something from the Huffington Post about the three resolutions all married couples should make. I was intrigued, so I clicked the link and thought I’d share their suggestions.
1. Daily Time: Successful couples spend a minimum daily average of 30 minutes or more talking to each other–without interuptions. To achieve this, you’ve got to put your cell phones away, settle the kids down and just catch up! You really have to ink it in the schedule just like you would for an appointment—that makes it certain to be a priority.
2. Date Night: Make time to be out of the house! Get a sitter, and reconnect with alone time together. It’s that kind of fun that helped you decide to get married; it’s what you need to sustain that marriage as well.
3. Make Three Appreciative Gestures Daily: This can be a simple statement, hug, kiss, any kind gesture that says, “I appreciate who you are and what you do.” Such simple gestures go a long way in helping each of you feel fulfilled and happy in the relationship.
I thought these were great suggestions, and things I touch on now and again in my blog. For me, I’m also resolving to have an improved prayer life. I’ve fallen behind a bit in the past few months, and want to step up my game–particularly important for me in setting a good example for Drake.
Cheers to 2013 and may it be a happy, healthy, successful year for you and yours!
