What are some ways to keep your demanding work schedule from affecting your relationship?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Careers are important, especially when women have worked so hard over the years to earn them. But on the other hand, love is just as important in creating your happiness. Don’t spend you days glued to a desk when you could have your lips glued to his. Learn to balance your demanding work schedule with these three tips below:

1. Prioritize your work-avaliability: Sometimes in the office you can create a set schedule for days in which you work, and in which you have off. With this, there will be no surprise on the days in which you work and do not work, so you won’t have to anticipate any curve-balls. You will also be able to let your man know when your office hours are so you can set up time together accordingly. This type of block-scheduling can help you find a balance between working and spending time with your man.

2. Utilize the time you do have: One mistake every couple makes is thinking that there always has to be a plan. Some of the best dates and adventures spur from spontaneity. Don’t waste your time sitting around trying to come up with something to do. Go for a walk until you think of something, hold hands, kiss a lot, and eventually you’ll both be able to find happiness from just being in each other’s company.

3. Schedule time off together: It’s okay, you can actually step out of the office and enjoy time off every now and again. Schedule a couple of days each month for you and your love to retreat together. Go on a small trip, to a bed and breakfast, or even just lock yourselves indoors together. Anticipation will build about your time together and will only make your feelings stronger, such as Sia anticipating her wedding day.
