Do you ever get so jammed with responsibilities, errands, and little
things that the things that you really want do to suffer?
Does your spouse ever say, in the morning, “Don’t forget we’re
supposed to meet the teacher at the school this morning?”
“Honey, please remember to stop stop by the bank a deposit those checks”
“On the way back could you please drop by the grocery store and pick
up some chocolate milk for he kids?”
If you are married you know EXACTLY what type of monkey wrench this
puts in your day.
(Side note: if you are married DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT ever say “no”
to any of these requests. Trust me, I’m a doctor. LOL.)
Well, back to my point…..
When life throws these curve balls at us, they do a few things….
1. They take up time
2. They stress us out because it creates last minute schedule changes and
3. It requires us to “drop” something in order to “make time” for something else
OR it just makes our day that much longer.
At any rate, what usually gets bumped are two things….. Sex and exercise.
I’m NOT being funny here, I’m keeping it real.
For those in committed relationships and marriages, this is as real as
it gets. We get tired, and then our workouts suffer because now we
have a decision to make….. Sex or Sleep? Or Workout or Sleep.
And anybody with kids will tell you that SLEEP DAMN NEAR WINS EVERY TIME!!
But here’s the real deal….
For the health of your relationship, you need to schedule the intimate
moments and make them priorities. And quite honestly it’s a great
joint workout. In harmony with that, you just cannot drop your
exercise or workout time. Your health is too important to skip it.
So what do you do?
Make an agreement. Cut a deal. And stick to it. And make it a health
pact in your home and relationship.
1. Create a bare minimum in terms of times of the week for sex. Why?
Because it is a good emotional and physical workout.
2. Create a bare minimum for working out in your relationship. Why?
Because your health and wellness is important. And even a car needs
maintenance so I know you do.
