How to use a 30 Day relationship challenge for couples to improve your marriage and reignite the love spark with your spouse or significant other. Accomplish one task each day to spice up your connection with your partner and to fill your marriage with intimacy, romance, and love.
Let’s be real…life is CRAY-CRAY!!!! Every night I go to bed, I usually have at least A MILLION things (well, maybe more like a dozen but totally FEELS like a million) that I had intended to get done that just didn’t get accomplished.
My to-do list just never seems to get shorter no matter how hard I try!
I recently have been taking inventory of the things that consume my time, because honestly, I’m not sure how the days go by so fast, and I feel like I just can’t get it all done!
Laundry, errands, cleaning, cooking, carpooling kids (geez, sounds like I’m June Cleaver from the 1950s), and don’t get me wrong that is all stuff that needs to eventually get done, but does any of it truly matter in the big scheme of life? (I’ll give you a hint, the answer starts with an “N” and rhymes with “GO”)
I’ve been giving quite a bit of thought to what really DOES matter…creating authentic connections with friends, showing my loved ones what they mean to me, living with more joy and gratitude.
So I’ve decided to put more of THOSE things at the top of my daily priority list.
With it being the beginning of February (The Month of Love) I can’t think of a better time to share the love with my kids and hubby in a tangible, physical way.
First on the list is my main squeeze, my rock, my husband, Gavin. We’ve been married for over 22 years (holy shiznit, how in the world has it been that long?).
Like many married couples, our life gets ultra-busy, and we don’t always show each other how much we care because we are distracted by kids, pets, jobs, bills, life responsibilities, reality tv (okay, maybe that’s just me!).
How do you combat all those things in our daily lives that need constant attention to carve out time for your spouse??
With a PRINTABLE of course!!
…well, actually you combat it with INTENTION, the printable just helps you stay on track and focus on building a better relationship with your partner!
And this printable specifically is a 30 Day Relationship Challenge!
So how exactly does it work?
How to Use 30 Day Relationship Challenge For Couples
1. Set the Intention
The week before you begin this fun relationship challenge, first make the commitment that you will spend the next 30 days doing one nice thing to show love and support to your partner every single day.
Plan on it being part of your daily routine before you begin.
Be sure you are committed and find time to accomplish one challenge each day for the next month.
A healthy relationship does not happen without effort, so start the relationship challenge with a strong sense of the time and attention that it will take.
2. Print the Challenge
Next, you will print out one of the versions of the relationship challenge. There’s one that is year and day-specific, and one that is more like a checklist or love bucket list. Choose whichever one will work best for you!
You can either keep your printable love challenge in a private place and surprise your partner with one love gesture each day or you can hang it like a sign and you can both work on the tasks each day together.
Here is the more date-specific relationship challenge:
