5. Take Time out from Responsibilities

Sometimes you just need to get away from everything.2

The buzzing of phones, the noise of children, the sounds of life in general.

It's important to turn off the phones and disappear every once in a while.

Too much work and no play causes a lot of stress and can affect every area of your life.

Having regular date nights gives you freedom from those stressors and special time with the one you care about.

I was with my ex girlfriend for 2 years & in those 2 years we went on 3 date nights all of which were in our first year...Our last year, not one! And it killed our relationship, among some other things, her playstation addiction/neglecting me and myself getting feelings for another...

I forwarded this article to my other half! In the last year I have been through 3 major knee surgeries and my day to day has diminished drastically . I went from being an independent woman to a completely dependent patient in my home! I have loss all urges to get "dolled up" and go out because it's a strain on my relationship to do - or so I feel that way. My attitude is positive toward recovery but nothing else. And with reading this I feel as though I was reminded of not the importance of date night but how beautiful my relationship once was and where I can't wait to get it to again!
