As a couple, you might be used to going to work every day and rarely see each other. You only have a few hours to be together over the weekends (which he also splits to go watch football and hangout with his boys). You might realize that with time, your busy schedules have caused a strain on your relationship. With the imposed “stay indoors” directive, it is imperative that you spend time in the house, together. How about you use this period to rekindle your relationship? Here are some basic tips on how you can get your groove back
Maintaining your early morning shower routine
Since you are now spending your work days in the house you should not disregard your cleanliness, and how you present yourself. Show your partner that you normally don’t cleanup, wear makeup and perfumes because you want to go and show off at work.
Keeping your bedroom neat
A lot of households make the mistake of having their master bedrooms open to the kids. Now that everyone is home including the kids, it is common to find them jumping on your bed in the morning trying to wake you up to go and finish that video game you left halfway last night. Take it upon yourself to keep the children off your bedroom. This is your small haven, the only space you and your partner can retreat to and recollect your thoughts.
Drop the tees and lesos
Dress well while at home, wear that wig and let him know that your fancy jewelry is not only for the office. In other words, dress nicely for him. Remind him that he is the reason why you put a lot of effort into how you look and present yourself.
Cooking his favourite meals
You are home now, technically full-time, make it count. There are a number of things that makes your partner happy and one of them is his favourite meal. Take it upon yourself to make him his favourite dish, and remember to make the moment special. Get him his favourite beer and let him know that his happiness is important to you.
Start conversations with him and have him talk about himself and his thoughts. Don’t take over the conversations. How is the house you are building in shags progressing? How is it going with the plan to get a car? Get involved in his plans and the things he likes by sharing productive thoughts about them.
Also take the time to talk about the kids, have light moments about which one is more stubborn. Having free conversations with him will help you reconnect with him and bring back the fire in your relationship.
