Couple on beach

Spring has arrived! Let the warm (or at least warmer) weather inspire you to breathe a little fresh air into your relationship routine. At least once this week, schedule a one-hour session with your partner and use that time to stop everything around you.

Bring each other into focus, make some summer travel plans, ask each other, "How are you?" and actually listen to the response. Connect. Meet for a beverage (even in your living room) and just talk. Put other demands aside and make your partner/relationship your only point of interest for this one hour. Think of it as a mini-date, and take advantage of each minute.

Remember how to slow things down even for just an hour and take your time...with each other.
