Attention is a precious resource: a person has only so much of it to give.


In today’s world, attention is a valuable commodity, with each person having only a limited amount to give. What if we directed more of this precious resource towards the person we deem most significant in our lives? What if we made it a habit to prioritize our partner as the primary recipient of our attention?

Attention serves as one of the most fundamental ways to express love and connection. Yet, in an era dominated by technology, it has become increasingly challenging to consistently focus our attention on our partners.

Modern devices, meticulously engineered by talented individuals and their intricate algorithms, have succeeded in capturing our focus and concentration, leaving little room for genuine connection with our loved ones. Research indicates that amidst the chaos of our busy lives, partners are often neglected, with attention diverted elsewhere.

In the midst of work deadlines, children’s needs, household chores, and financial obligations, our primary relationship can easily slip into the background, unnoticed until feelings of being taken for granted arise.

This disconnection can lead to feelings of loneliness, discontent, and alienation. Many couples mistake brief text exchanges throughout the day for genuine attention, but texting alone cannot satisfy the need for real intimacy and connection.

True attention requires us to set aside our devices and engage in authentic, eye-to-eye communication. It is the essential nourishment for a thriving relationship, nurturing the bond between partners and satisfying the craving for connection.

Without this mindful awareness, even the strongest relationships can falter. If you’re experiencing challenges in your relationship and would like to explore the benefits of relationship counselling, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Let’s embark on the journey of restoring intimacy and connection in your relationship.
