Morning and evening rituals invite connection in your relationship. They can be as simple or as complex as the two of you would like. Jon and I enjoy simple ways of connecting – a cup of coffee with a kiss in the morning and talking while snuggling at night.
Some couples enjoy sharing gratitudes, checking in on how they are feeling, or enjoying an evening walk together. Be creative to find something that works for the two of you. The hope is that morning and evening rituals encourage us to be present with one another.
As we share in this episode, Jon considers himself a quiet morning person, while I am naturally a more peppy morning girl myself! I am learning how to enjoy quiet moments with writing and meditation. While Jon finds having personal routines creates peace in his day.
We both agree that keeping expectations low and finding a simple rhythm is important in our relationship.
