Strengthen Your Relationship Tip #2

Along with seeking mentorship from other empowering couples, Vj and I dedicate time specifically for our relationship.

It is imperative that we have a weekly date night that we treat as sacrosanct.  Thursday night is date night and that is that.

In addition to our weekly date night*, we “get away from it all” several weekends a year.  On these weekends, we leave behind laptops and cell phones.  Then we have self-guided retreats that we have developed over the years to really clean house and get to the really important task of CONNECTION.  It is so easy to get bogged down with bills, chores, work and family.  When we spend these weekends together, we remind ourselves, to our very core, why we are together, how we want to be together, and what ways can we improve what we are doing. 

This might sound daunting, but it isn’t.  We make it fun and frame it from a win/win point of view.  We take our challenges and create goals out of them.  This simple perspective shift takes the heaviness of emotion out of the equation so that we can get down to the business of enjoying each other and tackling life as a TEAM.

We go away together in all sorts of ways from camping to luxurious resorts to couple’s retreats.  This February, we are sharing our system that we use with a few couples in a luxurious setting.  If you want to know more about it, see
