Feeling Emotionally Connected

Often times couples that have been together for awhile or have experienced the life change of having children will find themselves struggling to feel emotionally connected to their partner or spouse. They will often say that they do not feel the same way they used to about their partner or spouse and that they want to feel closer to them emotionally.  This can happen because life is busy and it can be challenging to find things to talk about other than work, the kids, the chores, the house etc… Here is a fun activity to help you begin rebuilding or strengthening your emotional connection with your partner or spouse. 

  1. Set aside 30 minutes 2-3 days a week of uninterrupted (no TV, no phones and no kids) time to devote to this activity.
  2. Get table topics cards ( eg. Our Moments: 100 Thought Provoking Conversation Starters for Great Relationships) or a guided conversation for couples book (eg. Couples Therapy Workbook: 30 Guided Conversations to Reconnect Relationships)
  3. Take turns asking each other the answers and engaging in a conversation about the questions and answers.

That’s it! Taking time to talk about things outside of your normal routine can be refreshing and elicit different communication with your partner and spouse that might be missing.
