Often I meet with couples that are struggling to connect. I usually suggest that they attempt “Pillow Talk” as a beginning to more intimate conversation.
This assignment requires couples to go to bed at the same time and face one another in the bed side by side.
During this time they are to look at one another and talk about their day.
It’s very difficult argue when you are this close to one another but it’s also very easy to create intimate conversation.
This is a wonderful habit for couples to begin and practice each night until communication that is deep and connecting begins to form without any practice needed.
If praying as a couple is important, I also encourage couples to end their Pillow Talk with a prayer in this same position.
Give it a try tonight and see how it works for you and your partner.
If you and your spouse are struggling to connect and you feel that counseling could help, give us a call for an appointment.
