Do you remember the slogan the Army had back in the day? “We do more before 6am then most people do all day.”
You probably have said something similar to this pertaining to your busy schedule. In order to stay afloat financially today, many of us endure long days, long hours, with little to no time for “extra”curricular activities.
So with little to no time to even take a lunch break some days, just how can you manage to spend quality time with your spouse?
Very good question.

5 Tips to Gain Time in Your Day:
- Get up 30 minutes earlier than normal. Use this time to have a cup of coffee (or your favorite morning drink) with your spouse and just talk about everything except bills, work, & children.
- Decide which night every week you will turn off the TV, cellphones, & have a no internet night. This is the night you guys will dedicate to talking and “dating”.
- Carpool to work together one day out the week. You can have quality time together while driving!
- Shower together…this really should be #1. There is nowhere to run. There are no phones, internet, or any other distractions when you are in the shower. Take a shower together once or twice a week.
These suggestions are just a start. The idea is to get in some QT with your spouse and a little time is better than no time. Until we can figure out how to have 25 hours/8 days a week, we will have to be creative with scheduling quality time with the spouse.
What are some ways you can think of to gain at least 30 minutes to spend with your spouse?
