“I Feel Loved & Special When”–CONNECTING ACTIVITY

During my most recent Private Couples Retreats, one of the partners described this activity as one they did prior to getting married.  I loved it and wanted to share it with you!

Use This Activity to Increase Connection

Each person take an index card or a small piece of stationary (not too big, but not TOO small).

Each write the title “I Feel Loved and Special When…” at the top. Then, write 5 honest answers that would complete that sentence.  (HINT: Be specific as possible.  Writing: “… when you are kind” is very vague versus “…when you prepare a meal for me during the week” is clear and concrete.)

Give your list to your partner and make sure you BOTH place them in a spot you will clearly see them. Do those things as you can! 

Help your partner feel loved and special by doing the things he/she has suggested.  Your partner will feel heard and you will know you are doing something that will increase connection.

Improve Communication and Connection With a Private Couples Therapy Intensive or Couples Workshop

You can communicate but you don’t always connect in your relationship. Understandably, you long for the emotional depth and meaningful connection. As challenging as relationships can be, there’s tools you can learn to experience that deep communication and connection.
