Mornings are hectic and evenings are filled with commuter traffic. It seems like every minute in between is consumed with meetings and business obligations, by the time you get home and have dinner you are exhausted and ready to curl up in front of the TV. But your children have homework and your spouse needs you to clean out the garage. It seems like you never get a moment of downtime. Considering you don’t have much time to yourself, it’s likely you don’t have much time to spend alone with your spouse, either. It is important that you allocate enough time in your busy schedule to go on dates with your spouse and spend quality time together. Here’s why:
Gets Your Mind Off Work
Work can be an ever-consuming thing that gives you hardly any down time. When you’re brushing your teeth for bed you are thinking about the office, when you’re driving home from the dentist you’re thinking about deadlines. Wouldn’t it be nice to occupy your mind with thoughts of a romantic date night with your loving wife? Spend a few minutes in your busy day researching the newest and hottest restaurant in Calgary or previewing movies to see what strikes your interest. Having a distraction from the daily grind can really help ease stress levels and increase excitement for the upcoming date night.
Allows You to Show Appreciation for Your Spouse
Your spouse works hard too, and it is important to show them that you are appreciative and thankful for everything that they do for you and your family. Planning a date night is an excellent way to give your spouse a night out and away from the demands of the kids and house. Your spouse is looking forward to the night as much as you are halfway through the day, you can count on it.
Reminds You Why You Got Married in the First Place
Sometimes in the shuffle of work and life, you forget about romance and the reasons why you fell in love and got married. Too often relationships suffer due one or both people being overworked. It’s important to set aside time to focus on each other and rekindle the love that brought you together in the first place. Rejuvenate your relationship by having frequent date nights that you can always count on and anticipate in times of high stress.
With everything you have to deal with in a day, the idea of having a regular stress-free night with the man or woman who stands by you can be the light at the end of your work tunnel.
