Relationship Minute: Make time for date night

2020 has been a weird year so far. Many of your routines, plans, and even concept of time may have gone out the window.

But we’re still going to encourage you to make time to spend together, with intention, even if a “date” doesn’t look the way it used to.

What do you consider a date? It’s probably more than just time spent together in the same room. Make some agreements with your partner around date time. For example, maybe phones and distractions are put aside. Or maybe you agree that some conversation topics (work, the pandemic, or finances) are off-limits.

Set the intention to invest your time in turning toward each other and enjoying each other’s presence, and plan for what that means to you if you can’t physically be together or go out to your favorite date spots right now.
