5 Ways To Make Time for Your Boo During the Holidays- Part 4

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.

Tip #4

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.

  1. I have definitely NOT been intentional in making time for hubby this holiday season. I’m so used to just doing things and letting him know when they’re done that I forget to include him in the process. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. My husband and I love running errands together. With having a 4 and 2 year old, sometimes that’s the only time we have together alone so I cherish our errand running time!

  3. Yup. This year we have been taken no any free moment we can. Now having a teen whose old enough and mature enough to watch the younger two has certainly been a blessing.

  4. When I wasn’t single, I tried to include my bf in what I was doing when I wasn’t working. November-February was pretty tough because I worked in retail, but when I was off everything was about us.

  5. I have felt so irritated by him this entire holiday season. One day he said hey, I am here to help. Let me help you. I felt like an idiot. It relieved so much of my stress and reminded me to focus on what was most important! Great tip to share!

Hey girlfriend, share your thoughts...
