It’s crucial to ensure that you engage in regular self-care. In this way, you can consciously give attention to another person. Journaling is an ideal method for self-assessment.
The practice of mindfulness or meditation can take on varied forms, but each means to put you in a space where you’re present in the moment with no distractions,
Whether in a marriage or dating, being present in a relationship is the basis for a healthy situation. One manner of achieving that is by setting boundaries.
In a sense, this is an act of being present virtually because you need to be conscious about the content you send, so it prepares the other person for an evening of “presence.”
Sometimes a night spent in a t-shirt and sweats, just lounging on the couch with some hot cocoa, is comforting while you have an in-depth conversation.
Make sure that your partner is the first person you confide any information to, whether it be a reaction to something, an update on a life event, or divulging opinions and secrets you share with no one else.
That can not only give you an evening of enlightening conversation, but it has the potential for giving each of you new interests, possibly new hobbies, and the likelihood for some excursions.
One problem is some will try too hard to be mindful of the moment with someone by asking questions but fail to realize active listening is a skill that needs practice also.
