Being a better husband isn’t something that just comes out of thin air. This is something that we have to work on daily to make sure we are continuing to improve in this area.
If you think that you are not the best husband that you can be to your spouse, you are not alone. I will be the first to say that I always think I could be doing a better job in this area. This is just like any other area in your life that you need to be intentional about your relationship if you are wanting to improve.
You can become a better husband by doing these 5 things daily.
Unplug. You need to be present with your spouse mentally and not just physically. While you might be sitting next to her on the couch, you are surfing the internet on you iPhone. Put the phone down and focus your attention on her.
Be a team. You are in this journey together and not alone. Don’t use words like “I” and “You”. Use “We” instead. Letting them know that you are on the same team is important because this will help reduce stress. You guys are not doing this alone. You are doing it together.
Do more chores. I know a lot of you are thinking “Do I have to?”. Yes. Whether your spouse is a stay at home mom or a working professional, they need help too. We create more work around the house for them so it only makes sense that we should help. Do the dishes, fold the laundry, or pick up the living room. Any of these will go a long way and she will appreciate it.
Kiss her every morning. This is something that is really easy to do and some people just pass it up. Kissing her before you head off to work in the morning will help lower stress and help you feel more connected to one another.
Be more detailed. I will be honest. This is a hard one for me. When she asks how was your day, do not just say “fine and yours?”. She wants more detail than that. I am really working to give more detail into my day. This is a way of connecting with her on a deeper level.
I definitely don’t have this all figured and need to work on all of these things as well. However, if you focus on these 5 things daily, you relationship will definitely go to the next level.
