Nikki and Mark chat with Psychotherapist Lisa Brookman Psychotherapist The West Island Therapy and Wellness Centre. Couples who are home together more now then ever can affect their relationship. It is a handful to also have the children around under the same roof for a long period of time.
There are a select few couples who are enjoying the time together, having lunch as a family or take a walk with the dog.
Some couples unfortunately are having a harder time adapting to everything that is happening. Lisa shares her top 5 tips to keep your relationship healthy.
- Keep lines of communication open. TALK about how your feeling and your needs.
- Give your partner space and you take space.
- Keep romance alive.
- Keep a virtual social life. Have a fun date night with other couples on facetime.
- Remind yourself everything will go back to normal.
