A few simple ways to say, “You have my full attention,” without using words.

  • Place your device(s) in a room other than the one where we’re spending time with our lover in. (This does not just mean the bedroom.)

  • Look up and putting distractions aside when they’re speaking to us.

  • Set timers for internet-related tasks to help be that concrete reminder you’re wanting to focus on them.

  • Whenever possible, take a weekly day off from all apps and websites, and sow the extra time earned back into things that revolve around your partner.

Lean into the privilege of getting to prioritize your partner. Discipline is a learned skill, one that takes practice to improve. This one is well worth it.
