We live in a world that's more connected than it has ever been before. As we become closer through online apps, social networking and instant communication, building a deep connection with the ones closest to you has become more difficult. Having the ability to stay up-to-date with anyone around the world has made our day-to-day lives extremely distracting.
Many couples feel as if they spend adamant amounts of time together, but end the day feeling further from each other. Contrary to these couples' beliefs, it is not due to lack of love, loss of feelings, or the act of exiting the "honeymoon phase". In a world that's ever-evolving both socially and through technology, endlessly scrolling through Instagram and TikTok has became the new go-to activity for relaxation after a long day.
This distraction and lack of attention to the real world is not something to take lightly. It has jeopardized relationships of all kinds, no matter the relationship's length, and has put seemingly happy couples at risk.
While the online world has captured the daily attention of every partner with a smart phone, couples are finding new ways to reignite their deep level of connection and communication.
