7 Life Hacks for Wives

July 21, 2014

Life hacks are the best. Im a shortcut girl as long as the shortcuts dont compromise quality. Because, hey, whats the good of, say, a super easy chocolate cake if it doesnt taste good?  So these 7 awesome life hacks for wives are not only shortcuts, theyre easy ways to help you be the wife you want to be:

Be Content Life Hack

Distraction and busyness drain my attention from my husband. What I need is a hack to help me remember how to make him a priority and show him that I adore him.

Adore Him Life Hack

The problem with social media is that I begin to believe that everyone I know has a perfect husband, a perfect house, and a $10,000 vacation every year. What I need is to be thankful for my real husband and the real pictures of sweet memories posted on my not-so-perfect but real walls.

Be Thankful Life Hack

Guilt is a problem for me. I often feel as if I am not being or doing enough. I seem to remember all the negatives with razor sharpness and they cut into me painfully. What I need to do is challenge myself to small successes every day and to let go of the negative.

Be Challenged Life Hack

Every marriage has challenges. Accepting that fact is a shortcut to figuring out how to overcome the challenge.

Communicate Well Life Hack

The simple things, that is what countshundreds of simple gestures all piled up together.  But the problem is if you get busy you forget. Thats what happened to me and my husband noticed. The solution is a simple hack for giving little bits of love in the words I use with him.

Love with Actions Life Hack

The problem is that my husband needs encouragement. He has a lot of pressure on him and I am often guilty of adding to it! The solution is a hack to remember what he needs to hear from me and to tell him, and to show him with my actions.

Speak Kindly Life Hack

I can come across as all business. A life hack for that is to simply use kind words. Then, if I mix in a kind tone, Ive got it!

    I remind myself how I acted when I was dating him and I do that. I.e.: Listening to work talk, not making fun if he’s watching Star Trek, etc. I would want to be awesome & cool and also show him I think HE is awesome & cool. Also, when I am feeling critical towards him I start giving thanks for his good qualities.
