What Others are Saying

"I recently started dating someone for the first time after being single for many years. My heart and my head were on a disconnect primarily due to fear of getting hurt. Some of my actions started to sabotage this new relationship. It was a difficult time for me as I tried to sort things out. I was struggling both mentally and emotionally to understand it all. Finally, I reached out to Michelle. She didn't tell me what to do, but she guided me through what was happening. It was so helpful and it made my path forward much more clear. I am happy to say that the relationship is back on track and is flourishing. Michelle's efforts and guidance were instrumental and I will be forever grateful."

Four morning date ideas that will start your day off right.


Our days and nights are so hectic, morning can be a wonderful time to connect with your partner. Here are some of my thoughts on ways you can “date” your partner in the morning.


1. Cooking breakfast together. Trying new recipes, cooking together and enjoying a meal together is a great way to start your day. Not only do you get to spend some quality time together, but the sense of teamwork and mutual support will carry over into your day.


2. Meditation. There are lots of great smartphone apps you can use that will guide you and your partner through a short 10-15 morning meditation. This is a wonderful way to deepen your emotional connection as well as set a shared intention for the day. You can even check in with each other throughout the day to see how the intention is manifesting.


3. A morning walk or jog. Walking or running together in the morning is a wonderful way to get in some exercise and have some distraction free conversation that may not happen after work when life is in full swing (kids, work, ect). This time together can help deepen your emotional connection and create a sense of calm and intention for the day. Taking a moment to stop and enjoy the sunrise with a sweaty kiss can make this experience even more meaningful!


4. Cuddling and sex. Sometimes couples have good intentions for physical intimacy, but time and the pressures of the day can interfere with those intentions. Even when the love and physical attraction is there, couples may give in to fatigue and fall asleep before intimacy can happen! Morning is the perfect calm and distraction free time to snuggle and enjoy each other before the stressors of the day can take hold!
