My partner and I are going through a challenging season and we're getting into conversations that leave our nervous systems "jangly".
Recently, I suggested a made up game where we jump around and make sounds, one person starts and the other person mimics the sounds and movements until they introduce new sounds and movements, passing back and forth until we laugh. It's silly and fun and we've ended up laughing and "completing the stress cycle".
I'm looking more more options to help complete the stress cycle and reconnect. Silly and playful games like I mentioned above are ideal, but any other ideas are welcome.
