Become very deliberate in efforts to show extra affection toward each other. Little gestures of affection from hugs to random kisses can go a long way. Make coffee for each other in the morning. Give your spouse a massage. Say “please”, “thank you”, “I’m sorry and “you’re welcome” more. Tell your spouse how much you appreciate him/her. Ask if there is anything you can do to help. Be aware of your mood so you do not take your stress out on your spouse.
Reach out to others with whom you socialized, individually or as a couple, before you were forced to stay home. Keep those connections alive as much as you can utilizing any technology available to you, from texting to three-way-calling to video chats. Host virtual happy hours regularly with your friends and family through FaceTime, Zoom, WhatsApp, or Facebook messenger. Reconnect with people you have not seen for a while and ask how they are doing during this challenging time.
