Life hacks are the best. I’m a shortcut girl as long as the shortcuts don’t compromise quality. Because, hey, what’s the good of, say, a super easy chocolate cake if it doesn’t taste good? So these 7 awesome life hacks for wives are not only shortcuts, they’re easy ways to help you be the wife you want to be:
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.
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.
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.
Every marriage has challenges. Accepting that fact is a shortcut to figuring out how to overcome the challenge.
The simple things, that is what counts–hundreds of simple gestures all piled up together. But the problem is if you get busy you forget. That’s 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.
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.
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, I’ve got it!
