all your free time with activities. You should learn to balance
work and family. Both need your undivided attention. So do

something, never plan something that will interfere with your
previously scheduled dates.

children. If you are a very busy person then coordinate dates
with your partner so your schedule doesn't conflict. Make
it a priority to spend at least two days a month with your
partner outside, away from your daily life, doing something.

accomplished, but rather how you felt while accomplishing

stress creeping up your neck, just take a deep breath and
relax. Think of all the good things around you and all the
love that your family has showered on you and this will help
