As you go through your day, look for things that you can share with your husband later in conversation.
What did your kids do or say today?
How did you spend your day?
Any news from friends?
Did you learn something new?
Did you read or see anything funny, interesting, etc.?
The other part of the equation is knowing when to dialog with your sweetie.
When are the times when he has the energy to talk?
Is he a morning or evening person?
Does he have time to talk during the day?
Does he need quiet time when he gets home from work?
Meal time is a good time to talk because generally you are sitting face to face and there is less to distract you. I’ve had several ladies say that their husbands do better in conversation when they are doing something. If so, invite him for an after dinner walk and share your day.
