Caught up in a second wave, with conflicting working from home schedules and home-schooling, there is a danger that intimate relationships can become starved of nourishment. We end up simply existing.
Here are ten tips to nourish a relationship that might be starving for affection, compassion, or a simple safe space to be heard. Your schedule is already overloaded, so these are not intended to be time-consuming. You also do not need to radically alter your life, becoming a completely different person for each other. Think of these as food for thought, and if these seem overwhelming, just take one at a time.
