Communication is key
Given the hectic schedules of today, it is easy to become emotionally distant from your spouse or partner if you do not really make the effort to stay connected to each other. In order to stay connected emotionally, you really have to turn towards each other, instead of tuning into your own thoughts.
Doing things together is the simplest way to reconnect with each other and it could be anything, including folding the laundry, helping out in the kitchen, washing or drying dishes and the like. The point is to spend time together so that you can actually talk to each other. Discuss the events of the day with each other at the end of the day. Acknowledge the other partner when you meet him or her at the end of the day.
Decide to have brunch or breakfast together, without the children, if any, at least once a week and make it a special event. Make sure to spend your meals together, whenever possible, in order to strengthen your bonding. Organizing family events or even parties together can help in staying connected as it allows you more time to communicate with each other.
There are many such things that you can really do together and all it takes is a little imagination and effort from your side.
