- Strategies from the previous blog post HERE include
- Unplugging from work and games on your phone and other devices.
- Plugging in strategically for the activities that refuel you (like for us, it's movie watching and binge watching Netflix)
- Babysitting swaps (probably will work best during the day) you and another family in the same boat, alternate swapping kids to give each other a break.
- Be honest – if you need a break (whether it's during parenting time OR date night time) just communicate that with your spouse. Self-care comes before spouse-care.
- The NEW approach…
- One of my readers, 3 years ago, mentioned she loves doing puzzles with her husband. I am not a puzzle person, but I love board games – so that's what I've been looking for: a board game we could play together… nothing!
- Guess what has games you can play with your spouse (or anyone) that are super fun!?
- Our favorite games on Alexa
- Spouse-care is just as important as self-care… and I love how much Alexa has enhanced my life by giving us a new date night type that we look forward to nightly! Plus, the inexpensive Echo Dot is affordable – especially when you consider the indefinite number of date nights you're bound to enjoy after she arrives!
