Whether your husband is at home due to quarantine or a long vacation from work, or even just for the weekend, you can help make him useful and not bored all at the same time. Who said you had to do everything yourself?! From what I can tell husbands like to work and need to be kept busy otherwise they’re “bored” and not productive. Well us wives have to help them be more productive. Just a little a push in the right direction that’s all!! 🙂
You can have your husband:
♥ Help you clean
I know my husband won’t just get up and clean (usually). But he will help when asked. Not only will your home look so much better, but you’ll get it done much quicker when there’s two of you.
♥ Play with the kids
Who said moms always have to play with the kids?? Have your husband play with them while you take some time for yourself, do something that you love, and/or work on projects that you usually can’t get done around the kids.
♥ Take a walk and/or exercise
Have your husband take a walk outside by himself to get some Vitamin D, fresh air (or at least fresher air than at home), body moving, and a great stress releaser. He’ll come back home happier and a bit healthier!! Also, he can exercise in whatever way suits him and gives him time to work on himself, plus will get him back in shape (if he isn’t already). Exercise is important to his mental state and well-being!!
♥ Find a new hobby
Maybe your husband is like mine and never has time to discover a hobby since he’s always working, well now is the time to do so!!
♥ Learn something new
Whether you’re teaching him how to do something new or he’s learning from others. Have him learn something new that might help you both out!! He’ll also feel smarter!!
♥ Cook/Learn how to cook
I don’t know about your husbands, but my husband likes to EAT!! Why not have him either cook (if he knows how to), help you cook, or learn how to cook. It might make it a bit easier for you and who knows he might cook you a dinner for a change!!
♥ Run errands
Who doesn’t like to get out of the home?? I feel like husbands like to be outside of the home more than inside the home. Have your husband do the grocery shopping, mail out your letters or packages at the post office, or anything else that makes him more productive, out of the home, and helps you get things done without you having to go out.
♥ Fix up your home
Now this is for the handy husbands (not mine, I’m more handy than he is. 🙂 ) Have your husband fix things up around your home or teach him how to. It’ll be helpful for you and the home.
Do you have any other tips to help husbands be more productive??
