Quick, on a scale of 1 to 10 how "plugged-in" do you think your marriage is? That is, how much do all of those devices with plugs and batteries and ringers impact your relationship?
In this marriage booster you're headed back to science class for the 2-day Unplug Your Marriage Experiment.
Here's how it works: for the next two days, when you are not at work (and this works best on a weekend), you are going to completely unplug yourself.
What does that mean? Just what it says. Unplug every single device you have. Start with the TV; unplug it. Then the cell phone. Change your greeting to say you are unavailable unless there is a complete and total emergency. Then the computer; yes, unplug it too.
And now, just enjoy. Enjoy the next two days. Let life move at a slower pace. Play a board game. Read a book. Read a book out-loud. Cook a gourmet dinner. Sing a song. Ride your bike. Most of all, notice your spouse. Spend time together. Savor life together.
This worksheet will help you to prepare and reflect on the Unplug Your Marriage Experiment.
