How to survive Quarantine and Save Your Relationship

Are you being forced into quarantine with the love of your life? Even some pets are not taking the stay at home all day movement. The coronavirus crisis has many consequences, from anxiety to depression. I pray everyone is staying covered and protected. If you have a small business like me or was recently laid off, I know you are feeling the final blow. Luckily many states are holding off on rent and providing essential human needs. Forcing families to get back to basics may be a challenge, but I am here to help you through it if you don’t live with your partner yet welcome to the club.

Start by talking just talking no phones, no distractions when is the last time that happens? Open up talk about fears and goals get back to basics. In life, we get so busy we start to miss out on the little things. We don’t have kids but ask yourself when is the last time you talked to them. Remember, when sharing feelings, not to be judgemental. It can be hard to share sometimes, so don’t be selfish. Talk and listen. That’s the key. Personally, I know I like to be right because I mean I’m always right lol. But once I got married, everything I thought I knew was thrown out the window. Men are taught to be tough and not talk about feelings, and not everyone is lucky enough to grow up with someone who reassures you. Sometimes I see in my relationship and my friend’s connections that our partners need that same reassurance we ask for every day. Men/Women, it’s okay to feel, please stop holding your emotions. Please stop pushing that down your throat chakra. Write a letter if you have to, but no more running. This is your wake up call. This is a safe space, and please feel to email me if you need someone to listen to judge free. I encourage you to open up to your partner; I promote therapy.

To keep things spicy, why not start a show together? I know Josh and me we will watch all the Star Wars, Jurrasic Park, and Marvel movies throw in 911 and other shows we get to catch up on and my favorite TED talks. A lot of places are doing virtual tours like museums, so heat the popcorn and take a trip. Take things back to grade school, and play 21 questions, never stop dating your partner. It’s a lot of little things that you can do that’ll make memories for a lifetime. I wholeheartedly believe everything that has been happening is for a reason. We need to take a step back and get back to basics. Mother earth is cleansing herself, and we have to ride it out. Always remember, though, it is essential to spend time with yourself. It is a perfect time to start meditating, journaling, and, best of all, sleep. The quarantine is going to be a temporary situation. Continue to wash your hands and practice good hygiene. If you are still working from home, do not overwork yourself. Take breaks, eat lunch, stretch it out. It’s super important to stay protected and well-hydrated during this time. Attached will be a list of plants and herbs that are going to be useful to stock up on. Please remember I am not a doctor, and if you have any concerns, please contact them. I hope you heal.

  1. I’m one to mask my feelings because I’ve always been in relationships where revealing them , I was always made out to be the bad person. So becoming a yes man just kept the negativity down . This post gave me another perspective so thank you!
