Slowing Down

By October 11, 2009

Follow me on:

Slowing down, or unplugging, or recharging, or re-creating is generally described as an individual need. Reading Alana B. Elias Kornfeld's article, "How We Unplug & Recharge" made us think of how couples need to unplug and recharge, too, in order to make sure their marriage doesn't run on empty.

We like to walk together, especially on the beach. Watching an old classic romance movie together is both enjoyable and re-creating for us. Some other ways we can recharge as a couple are sitting in a hot tub, meandering through an antique store, taking a nap, watching ships on the river, getting rid of stuff we don't need both physically and emotionally, and going for a drive in our scenic area. Individually, Bob works in his garden to feel closer to nature and I enjoy re-reading favorite books.

How do you recharge and unplug as a couple? Please share how the two of you recharge.
