Is there a trick to making the most of every moment?

Asked by noelasun (1889points) May 12th, 2009

I’m going to be spending the weekend visiting my impossibly far away SO… and already, I’m feeling like it will be oh so fleeting.
As “fleeting” is not how I would like to remember this weekend, What can I do to make the most of our time?

Bring a camera and get a lot of photos.

Do not rush from one thing to another- spend time walking a beach or hiking where there is no television or other distractions.

Play the 100 questions game. Each take turns asking random questions to one another
they can be as trivial as “what is you favorite smell” to “What is your dream vacation”

Know that the moment you’re in is all you have right then.

Ever seen the movie “Yesman”? It is absolutely rediculous, but it also has a lot of truth to it.

Eliminate distractions. The only moment we live in, is now.

Try to enjoy each experience. Even if you get caught in the rain or have to walk somewhere look at every opportunity as a chance to learn something new.

Pay attention to the present, not the past or the future.

Speaking from the experience of a weekend commute type relationship, you both need to be intentional with the time. That is, it’s about you and both of you are going to put distractions on hold. Also, have things planned or at least options for things to do. That way, you’re not sitting around trying to figure out what to do if you’re done having sex and there’s nothing on TV. Go dancing. Go to a movie. Go fly a kite and sit in the park. Go for a walk. Go out to dinner. Or make an event of cooking dinner. Whatever.

My advice- aside from meals, don’t make plans. Be spontaneous, and have a lot of sex. ahem.

@Knotmyday Sex is good. mmmmm.

Go outdoors. Take a hike in a scenic area. I find that walking is conducive to talking and talking is really what relationships are about. And when night falls, prepare supper over a campfire and then make love under the stars.

Yeah, there is. Every time a moment presents itself: take it. Say you’re taking the bus and you get on the wrong one. Don’t get off at the next stop to get on your real bus. Explore the city a little, live spontaneously. There’s also the ‘yes man’ theory, where you say yes to everything and see where it takes you=)
