Hi, Robyn D'Angelo here, The Happy Couple Expert and you're relationship coach teaching you how to create your very own EPIC relationship that lasts! And for those of you that are here in the states, we have a holiday coming up again, that's right, we have Labor Day. And this is a perfect opportunity for those of you in relationships to connect with your partner and talk about rituals of connection.
What I mean by this is, when we have a holiday, it's kind of like an organic, what we call, pattern interrupt, right? So we have this normal, daily routine-- we get up, go to work or we get the kids ready for school. Well, we have a holiday, which typically means, no work, no school, so that's a pattern interrupt! We're interrupting the pattern of our normal daily life and these can be wonderful!
This breaks up the monotony and it gives you and your partner to talk about, how do you want to spend this time? Maybe it's an opportunity for the two of you to go and spend time apart with friends, do something separate. However, I really want to encourage you guys to sit down and talk about, how can you spend time together?
Maybe this is an opportunity to create a new tradition for Labor Day. Maybe it's an opportunity to continue traditions; however, whatever you do, talk about it! Plan. Maybe make a plan to not plan. But, sit down and make time to talk to your partner about hey, we have this day, what do we want to do with it? And just give yourselves the space to talk and to kind of day dream about the possibilities and the opportunities.
This says to your partner that it's important-- your time together, quality time, is important. And that you value their opinions. So, make time to talk to your partner about this upcoming holiday and go enjoy yourself!
Leave a comment and let me know-- what did you guys end of doing? Where did you end up going? What did you end of up not doing? Maybe you binged on Netflix, but regardless, talk to your partner, connect and let me know how it went!
