Quiet Time Together

There’s a belief that whenever spouses have “together time,” they should be actively chatting or interacting. As humans, we need our quiet time to rest, recharge, and restore our creative energies. Together time shouldn’t always be active or talkative, spending quiet time together is just as important.

As the day comes to a close, the body begins preparing for sleep. With a good sleep hygiene routine,you can help your body get ready for bed so you don’t spend hours tossing and turning. As bedtime draws near, peaceful, quiet and calm activities can help you naturally get a better night’s sleep.

This quiet time can be spent with your wife. You’ll be spending time in close physical proximity, but not necessarily doing anything together. You might read the paper while she catches up on social media. You might both be reading a book, or finishing up some brainstorming.

We’ve grown too uncomfortable with silence. It can be a really nice experience to be together, in peace, with no noise, the quiet softly relaxing both of you. In fact, you might even find that you both come away from this time together feeling more connected than ever.

We need active times, we need quiet times. We need busy times, we need calm times. Our relationships require the same things as our bodies do. Live a balanced life ensuring that all needs are met.
