This month’s positive point with a client happened when one mate claimed the other mate didn’t want to do what he wanted to do when it came to quality time together. She claimed the same thing. Whenever she would bring up an idea for quality time together, he would appear to be less than enthusiastic.
During one of our sessions, this couple brainstormed ideas on things to do together when they had alone time (not always easy during the pandemic). They worked beautifully together. They gave me permission to share their list of ideas with you. You may like some and not others, but if you can adopt one idea, that’s progress!
Ideas for Quality Time:
- Jurassic Park exhibit
- Rent a bike/scooter
- Outdoor archery class
- Time outside on the patio
- Indoor skydiving
- Going to the golf/driving range
- Picnic in the park
- Planetarium/science museum
- Cooking dinner together and then massages
- Take walks with the dog
- Watching movies and having dinner
- Bottle of champagne on the porch
- Baking a dessert, especially our son’s birthday cake
- Farmer’s market
Once their list was made, they wrote each idea on a separate piece of paper and made a “Date Jar.” They will alternate picking an idea from the jar. They now have weeks and weeks of ideas for quality time together!
