We can find balance in our home by revisiting the foundation of our relationships.
There’s an endless list of ways to maintain balance in your home, especially the balance in your marriage or with your significant other. From what I’ve found, the stem of it all is returning to the roots of why you’re together.
What things did you do together that made you happy? What did you both enjoy? What was part of the foundation that brought you together?
In this segment my husband and I discuss what we have tried and found to work for us. You’re more than welcome to implement these into your life, and I definitely encourage you to think of ways that you and your significant other connected in the beginning. Once you have that list together, the best thing you can do is build your list into a schedule to get you started.
Make time for the two of you to discuss some of these topics. Even if it’s only 30 minutes before you go to bed, try to block off some time where you turn off your TV, put down your phone, and just focus on one another. Most importantly, focus on topics dealing with each other and outside of the children.
For me and my husband, we found that in order to effectively create a schedule for ourselves, we needed to first create a schedule for our kids. In the beginning, it was very tough as you can imagine. Over time though, the more on track our kids were, and the more we all stuck to the schedule, the happier we all were.
I think of all the things you can do, the most important is to find a routine that works for your family. Once you have your groove, it will all get a lot easier.
