10 Things Your “Me Time” Can Bring to Your Marriage

Couples who spend proactive time apart can have an emotionally deeper relationship

Large

Having “Me Time” should never be considered as a luxury or something that could jeopardize marriage, but rather a necessity that keeps relationships healthy. In fact, the importance of “Me Time” in any love relationship was proved to be vital by experts. 

When we take charge of our own well being we get

to recharge our batteries and hence we allow ourselves enough time and energy to reconnect with our partners. By creating enough “Me Time” we will look forward to spending more “We Time” leading to a more vibrant and fulfilling relationship.

Here are 10 things your “Me Time” will add to your marriage:

1-Individual Identity

Once people get married a lot of decision making is shared between the couple. In order to take decisions as partners, whether personal or marriage related, we should be able to recognize our individual voice first. Time for self-evaluation gives us the chance to figure out who we are and what we want which not only helps in better decision making but also gives us more insight to notice our spouse’s needs and eventually establish effective and healthy communication. 

2-Healthy relationship

As marriage psychologist, Les Parrot simply puts it “Get yourself healthy before you get yourself married”. What Parrot means by this is that in order to achieve a healthy relationship we should first work on being healthy individuals which will naturally reflect on our marital life. If we work on becoming the best versions of ourselves, only then marriages could be free of unhealthy characteristics that lead to toxic relationships like possessiveness, over jealousness, low self-esteem, and much more personal insecurities.

3-Empathy

Being a healthy and loving person allows us to consider others’ feelings. Giving self-love enables us to recognize other people’s needs and makes us much more empathetic and considerate in our actions towards them.

4-Interest

As human beings, we get drawn to the unknown. When two people fall in love they get very excited to know everything about each other which eventually fades out with time. Sometimes when the couple is not careful this fading out phase could end up in plateau marriages. Having “Me Time” can bring this interest back to the picture. Very simply when we get the chance to do different things individually we have something new to talk about and share together as a couple. 

5-Conversation

When two people spend a lot of time or nearly all the time together, their conversations turn silent as everyone knows everything about the other already. Doing different things apart from each other will spice up these conversations and bring in more excitement in the relationship.

6-Companionship

Shared companionship does not only mean getting to share our beds with our partners. Companionship means having a deeper emotional, mental, and psychological connection with them as well.  Not all couples get to have that kind of connection even though it exists in most close friendships.

Having “Me Time” adds more companionship to marriage giving a special feeling of togetherness between spouses and at the same time having a personal individuality. 

7-Vitality

People who take a large breath before diving underwater stay longer underwater. The same thing goes for our “Me Time” and relationships because when we get to recharge ourselves with doing things we love, it gives us more energy and will to give more to our relationships.

8-Creativity

Did you know that most people say they get creative ideas while showering? Well, it is not the actual shower that brings in all the brilliant ideas rather than having our own individual space that helps clear our minds and thoughts. Ideas merge in different ways to address challenges we come across in life including marriage.

9-Excitement

Spending time alone doing something different and new could perhaps bring laughter to one's marital life.  It will make us more excited to see our partners after a time spent apart. In case of fighting it will give us a fresh perspective on the matter for when we return back home. 

10- Love

The last and most important point is love. Some may think that love is unconditional that comes naturally to us while the truth is love needs constant hard work and contribution from both parties. To be able to give love and hold a genuine appreciation for our partners, we have to learn to love ourselves first. To end with a good note, statistics have in fact shown that couples who spend proactive time apart can have a deeper and more emotionally connected marriage
