Finding Quality Time While Working Different Shifts

There are hundreds of couples that work different shifts and still manage to keep their relationships strong.

Many couples start a relationship knowing the different schedules and working shifts that their partner works and still find time to have children, attend family functions, and save quality time for themselves.

Tips to find quality time when working different shifts:

  • travel to their work place and have dinner or lunch together
  • create a family day and stick to it no matter what comes up
  • try and get at least one day off during the week together
  • spend 20 minutes during shift change talking about the day ahead
  • greet each other with a smile no matter how much time you may have together
  • schedule vacations and personal days off together
  • flirt with each other during your time together, that way you can leave a lasting impression as you leave for the day

Easy ways to communicate when you're not together

If your husband or significant other works during the night and you work during the day, there are ways to communicate and find quality time to spend together.

  • when packing his lunch, put a note in his lunch box
  • share information through e-mails
  • have a set lunch date, either at his job, or yours
  • leave a small note near the coffee pot
  • leave a message on the answering machine
  • slip a small gift or note inside his car so it is the first thing he sees when he opens the car door
  • tape a picture of yourself on the bathroom mirror
  • make at least one phone call to each other during the day or night
  • leave an inspirational note on his pillow
  • pick up a dozen donuts, bagels, or breakfast when coming home

Nothing is more important than family and companionship. Spending quality time together is the key to a happy and healthy relationship.
