I hope you have been working on the last 3 tips with purpose. My plan is for you and your Boo to get closer during the hustle and bustle of the season. I’m sure you have been enjoying the last tip. Tip number 4 is practical but just as important.
Include Them – When we started preparing for the holiday season, I was running around like a crazy woman. When Don would try to get some of my time or attention, I would feel irritated with him. I had to switch my thinking from being annoyed to one of including Don in what I had going on.
Being intentional about making sure to include my hubby in everything, made him feel like he mattered. When he offered suggestions, I would use them. Eventually, he offered to help me with my errands so I wouldn’t be out there fighting the crowds and traffic. He would take the kids back and forth to their various practices. He loves sports, so he took the liberty to go to the high school basketball games where our daughter was cheering and was the drop off dad.
Including your Boo in your holiday errands, you will see that your workload will be lessened. This will reduce your stress level and you both will enjoy each other.
