Do Your Own Thing
Alone time is the key to a successful marriage. If taking nurturing, good care of yourself is something you know you should do, but you don’t actually do it, you’ll be headed for disaster. Regular self-care is not only essential to your own health, well-being and sanity, it’s vital for your marriage. “Me” time will remind you of your own identity and that’s a good thing for both parties. One of the most critical elements of happiness is having a solid identity, but being in a marriage can blur those lines. It’s easy for your wife to lose herself in her husband’s identity and vice versa. That’s why it’s so important to do your own thing sometimes. Go out, take a class, hang out with your best friend, read, and try something new – anything that will put you back in touch with yourself.
