Though we have focused on finding ways to connect with your partner through technology, it is also important to set aside technology-free time throughout the week. Talk to your partner to identify moments during your day or week to unplug and spend time together. This can also be a conversation you have while setting boundaries around technology within your relationship. When you make an effort to spend quality time with your partner without the presence of technology, you can increase intimacy and connection within your relationship. This time provides a space for you to check-in with one another and talk about any challenges you may be facing or any joys you’d like to share together. Ask each other about your needs or ways that you can best support one another during these moments! Some ideas of moments you can use to set aside technology free time include during dinner, before bed (if you’re living together), and during weekend events or getaways.
