Marriage therapy is one of those things that we’d love to do one day. As a way to keep our marriage healthy, learn more about each other and grow in our relationship skills, marriage therapy seems like a great option!
But I was curious about what we could do in our everyday lives to help us in those same ways.
We went on a date for my birthday.
A big, fun, visit lots of places kind of date.
No kids. No stress.
Just a fun, planned day together.
Jeremy planned the day using my 20 Dates post…
Seriously, isn’t this too cute?
This bear’s name is Bearemy (the name on his cute little foot), he sports some fantastic eye brows and I got his hat for $3 on the sale rack.
We had such a great day and it felt wonderful to spend a day, just us…
I realized that day, that there are a few things we should do once and awhile for our marriage.
DIY Marriage Therapy.
Things that we don’t always take time to do.
3 things you should do right now… especially if it has been awhile since you’ve done these things!
1. Plan a date. Get your calendars out, find a date and right it in with a sharpie marker or as google calendar event on your phone or however you keep dates! Schedule it in and make sure it happens. Take a look at these fun ideas!
2. Give your spouse a kiss. Really… make a physical connection. Hold his hand, grab a quick hug while making dinner… for some reason, after we are married for a while this simple, flirty practice falls to the side and doesn’t happen as often as it should.
3. Pray for your spouse. Find a quiet moment and pray, really pray, for your spouse, your marriage, your life together. We need to be on guard for our marriages and prayer is a powerful tool we don’t often use!
My birthday date was a success.
Can’t wait for the next time we go out together.
Planning to hold his hand and pray for him today!
So, go grab your hubby and your calendar… do these things right now!
