Small things often

Small things often

Six small things. That grand tropical vacation can’t renew your relationship as much as the six things included in this first exercise. Do these every single week. For life.

Some of them take as little as 2 minutes a day. Others, like Date Night, take two hours. But each of them contributes to a richer intimate experience than any grand gestures. You are giving your partner the most valuable gift you can offer: the gift of time and attention.

It’s a gift only you can give.

Lesson at a glance:

  • Six distinct activities over the week
  • Rituals around Partings and Reunions
  • Keep a journal that keeps you in a gratitude mindset
  • Cuddles and a six-second kiss at bedtime
  • A two-hour “we time” to relax and connect (date night)
  • An introduction to a one-hour “State of the Union” meeting.

Do you and your partner have some time on the calendar for each other? Make sure you have a date night planned as well as a weekly “state of the union” conversation.

Small things often
