Spending time together with your spouse
Have you ever given a though how your days are spent?
I bet they go pretty much like this: Your daily work eats the majority of your time (whether you are working at home or you have a day job) and you also have your own personal hobbies that you want to pursue.
In addition you spend time with your family as much as you can and occasionally you want to spend time with your friends too. You might even have a pet which needs dedication as well.
When you look at the previous daily activities, do you think there is something important missing? You got it right, spending time together with your spouse.
Why spending time together is important?There are many reasons why one-on-one time is important.
- You keep your relationship alive
- You can listen what’s been on your spouse’s mind lately (and take corrective action if it’s worries)
- You both feel happy when you can spend time with the person you love
- It gives energy to cope with occasional stressful moments in family life
How to find free time for both of you?A very common obstacle when spending one-on-one time is – you guessed it – how to find available time? Even if you could arrange your work matters in a way that they are not preventing your mutual time, there is one big thing to solve: How to deal with your kids?
After having a baby, me and my wife have been focusing on the well-being of our son. Although our son is our top priority, we have managed to spend time together with these ways:
- Plan in advance
- Ask the parents
- Ask your trusted friends or god parents
- Hire a nanny
If you know someone reliable, ask him/her to take care of your child/children when you are spending time together.
- Take advantage of nap times
Although you can’t leave your home while your baby is sleeping, you can still take advantage of that time block by doing something together.

Follow these tips to relieve pressure at the office :
1.Harness ‘good stress’ to deal with ‘bad stress’. Focus on the positive aspects of your day, even if they’re only small, to lift your mood and help you focus on other problems.
Dr Robert Rosen, author
2.Scribble out anxiety by writing your thoughts down. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, simply jotting down all the tasks you need to do and dissecting them is enough to help you overcome tension.
University of Chicago
3.Phone home: talking to a loved one boosts the feel-good hormone oxytocin, leaving a smile on the face of the angriest desk jockey.
University of Virginia
4.Listen to music at your desk. Melodies provide a distraction, reducing muscle tension and cutting your levels of the stress hormone cortisol. Research has shown that listening to Mozart can help to improve your communication skills, creativity and task performance.
5.If your To Do list becomes too long, swap your espresso for a glass of milk. It will boost your levels of feel-good hormone serotonin to beat the office blues.
6.Stay at your desk late to beat heart problems. People who take work home with them are 20 times more likely to suffer.
Johns Hopkins University
7.De-clutter your desk to de-clutter your mind. Working in a clear environment helps free up your mind from unnecessary distractions, promoting productivity.
Wendy Hearn, business coach
8.Count to 10 in a foreign language. It distracts your mind quickly and efficiently enough to deal with sudden increases in your stress levels.
Will James, psychologist
9.If you feel like you’re about to boil over take a 15-minute break where you leave your work station and do some simple stretches. This has been proven to make you calmer and more productive.
American Journal of Industrial Medicine
10.Play a game. ‘Casual' video gaming can reduce stress and have other mood-lifting effects. This does depend on the game though, a leisurely round of Let’s Golf! will potentially see a more positive response than a hardcore session of Call of Duty: Black Ops.
University of East Carolina
