One of the books that I’m keeping is Cue Cards for Life by Christina Steinorth, MA MFT. The title says it all. The author shares a number of simple reminders – cue cards – that will help you develop healthier relationships. There are sections for marriage, parenting, your workplace and more.
One cue card that stood out to me today was:
Put your personal communication device away.
So simple, but, honestly, haven’t you seen people spend more time texting or calling than engaging in conversation with the people right next to them?
Putting your phone away tells the other person that they have your full attention and that they matter to you. Not a bad message to send to your sweetie.
Choose to be phone free when you have an opportunity to spend time with your husband ~ at the dinner table, while watching a DVD, or when you’re taking a walk in the neighborhood.
