Going through marriage counseling can become a source of renewal and strength for your family. If your marriage has had hard times, getting back on track can be the best way to celebrate your family and the commitment that you have made. While you are going through Christian marriage counseling, it is important to keep yourself and your spouse grounded and happy. In order to do this, you and your spouse will need to take part in certain activities together. Here are three activities to do with your spouse while in marriage counseling.
Breakfast together in the morning
having breakfast or at least coffee with your spouse is one of the most stress-free things that you can do. Having breakfast together allows you time to connect and talk to one another without any distractions. Breakfast happens when you are just waking up and there is no stress of the day on your shoulders. This gives you and your spouse time to speak to one another and connect with no daily stress and issues. This leads to better relating to one another and better memories throughout the day.
Church events with married couples
Most other married couples can attest to the fact that marriage is not always easy. It is a good idea to seek out the life experiences of other Christian couples. They can fill you in on times that they struggled in their marriage or in their faith. Finding out how others have used their faith to get through hard marital periods can give you insight and hope. You can also lean on their strength in order to get through your own hard period.
Long walks with one another
Whether you can go for a 20-minute walk every night or if you are able to get away for a two-hour walk one night a week, you and your spouse need a chance to reconnect. Going for a leisurely walk will give you a chance to clear your head and speak to one another. Since walking can decrease stress and is a good way to release a stream of consciousness, you will be able to speak to one another with lower stress levels and higher ability to talk while thinking clearly. Instead of speaking with hot heads, you will be able to deal with any issues going on in the relationship in a logical and cool manner. Walking with your spouse may become one of your favorite activities.
