Wedding planning will be stressful and require a lot of extra “work” during your normal off times. So that is why I, your wedding planning advocate am prescribing you as a couple 1 weekly self-care/reconnecting date. Here are 3 ideas that you can do weekly to maintain your mental sanity during the planning process.
Evening walks my guy have become one of my most cherished times. We love to end our evening with a post dinner 30 minute walk where we talk about what’s going on in our lives. Studies actually show that going on a walking enhances cognitive process which will lead you and your partner to having a free flow of ideas due to the blood flowing to your brain. Walking is also proven to: Improve anxiety, mood, creativity, concentration, energy, and cognitive performance.
Where you will move? Hopes and dreams for each other. How can you be more supportive of each other.
My hope is that by following these steps you return home with a restored and deeper connection.
If you are anything like me, watching TV is always on the back burner. I have a MILLION other things to be doing and taking ONE hour out of my day to sit down and not think about my to-do list is extreme torture!
This is the exact reason WHY I invest time in watching a TV show with my guy. It’s a time when we both can unplug, cuddle & relax with each other all while investing in a show. It creates a time to look forward to in the week!
P.S. If you are feeling adventurous over a weekend start a movie marathon with a movie series like Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Marvel, or Pirates of the Caribbean.
Okay, so I know this may not be everyone’s cup of tea…. But hear me out on this one. Exercising creates endorphins. Endorphins diminish your perception of pain. Which means that you are more likely to be happy and positive after working out. I’m not saying it needs to be a hit workout or anything crazy.
There are many ways you can work out together:
I know working out may not be ideal. But scheduling time during the week to take care of your body together can establish great routines & create mental wellness.
Whatever you choose to establish into your routine as a couple, I hope that you choose something that allows you to connect together. Life is only going to get more busy the older you get and establishing self-care/reconnecting routines now will only deepen your relationship.
