Click the picture to listen to the episode.
I know we discussed last week some ideas on how to cope with the entire family being at home due to the COVID, but what about working with, playing with, eating every meal with, parenting with, sitting and relaxing with, and every other activity you can think of with your spouse…every day, all day, with no breaks. Sounds fantastic right?! Or does it sound like you might need a case of Xanax airlifted to your location. So, what are some practical ideas for how to cope with sharing your every waking moment with your spouse without running screaming from your house because you decided it would be better to take your chances with the pandemic instead?
1. Give each other space.
2. Empathize with your spouse; seeing through their eyes. Giving them patience and don't assume the worst in your spouse.
3. Keep structure within the marriage.
4. Have "other than spouse" adult time. Hangout with people via an online platform.
5. Have spiritual time together.
