It Takes Tech...and Two...to Reconnect
December 21, 2018
Rekindle the connection with your partner with these quick tech tips.
Parents with young kids oftentimes pass like ships in the night. Whether racing by each other on the way to practice, or saying "hello" in the hallway while retreating to separate kid's bedrooms for tuck ins and bedtime stories, it can be very hard to find time to connect. Household chores, extra work to meet a deadline and exhaustion make it nearly impossible some nights.
But with a little loving effort and Panoramic WiFi at your fingertips, it can be easy to find that connection in spontaneous ways.
Here are a few ideas:
Book a Binge Watching Night: This is Us, The Crown, Narcos, whatever your fancy; find a perfect opportunity to get sucked into the latest episode together. Take control of your viewing experience with Contour TV after the kids have gone to sleep and browse through those highly-anticipated episodes. You can challenge each other on how many you can make it through before nodding off.
Connect Through Text: You're upstairs with the kids and your partner is downstairs cleaning up. Sounds like a perfect opportunity to text something funny. A playful gif, an amusing meme, or just a love note. It's a tiny gesture that will make your partner smile.
Send a Calendar Invite for a Date: Out of the blue, email your partner a calendar invite for a date. It can be a "binge watching" date (see above), an hour to sit by the fire and drink a glass of wine or a real 'date date' where you actually go out and enjoy a meal and a real conversation without interruptions! A shocking concept these days, we know!Music To Your Ears: With Panoramic WiFi, you can have the world of music at your fingertips (and can download up to 100 albums in 44 seconds!). Whether it's an impromptu disco party or a slow dance with your partner, music is a must for reconnecting.
A little goes a long way when it comes to love.
