Growing Deeper In Love by Focusing on Quality Time
Time. It’s free, yet priceless. It is something you can’t keep but you can sure spend it! However, once you have lost it, it is impossible to get back. There is only one thing that can be MORE precious than time. That is, the one we spend our time with!
Since time is SO precious and valuable, giving your time to someone is what makes them KNOW they are important to you! Some things just TAKE your time. For example, cooking, cleaning, your job, etc. What you choose to do with the rest of your time is all part of prioritizing. Your spouse or significant other should be TOP on that priority list. Here are some ways my husband and I make sure we make time to spend with each other.
Put It On the Calendar
For the longest time, I really felt like if I had to be “a mark on the calendar”, that I wasn’t very important! Then, I started realizing all the things that I FELT were more important to my husband were also on his calendar, I realized that being on the calendar is a GOOD THING! We make sure we plan ahead, even though sometimes we do spontaneous date nights as well. If you plan ahead, you are much less likely to not get too booked up with other obligations!
Shut Phones Off
This can be so difficult in today’s society. Everyone expects that if they try to get in touch with you, that you are readily available! Quality time is NOT sitting side by side both on different devices. That is more like existing together… your time is focused on your phone, not your loved one!
Don’t Base Quality Time on Finances
Being tight on money is NO reason to give up your quality time. Quality time can be right inside your own home without going out to eat or to a movie. You could go to a park, play games or even just sit out on the back porch to talk. You can’t BUY time… so don’t base quality time on how much money you have to spend!
Plan Ahead – Make It Special
Add some thought into your special time with your spouse. If you put time into making it extra special… it will be! When your loved on sees you making such a valiant effort to make sure your time is extra special, they will KNOW they are your top priority!
Hold Yourself Accountable With Your Time
Since you are the ONLY one who can decide how to spend your time, make sure you are disciplined enough to keep track of your time. If you see that you will have a few extra minutes during the day to get something done to assure extra quality time with your spouse, then do it. Time management is so important. If you become lazy with your time, you will find yourself never investing true quality time with the ones you love most!
Keep Up With Your Time
Don’t let time slip away and DON’T be LATE! Wearing a watch while out with your spouse will eliminate a quick glance at your phone turning into returning texts, scrolling on social media, and doing similar “virtual” things. Check out this watch by Konifer!
