The post about keeping a joint journal made me get a lot of requests from couples in long-distance relationships on how they can keep their relationship alive.

Here I am today to tell you that keeping a joint journal as a long-distance relationship couple is nothing impossible and it is something that will bring life to your relationship. So, here are four steps you should follow to have the best journal in your relationship.

There will be nothing to journal if nothing brings you together to create memories. You can decide to pray together, go on online dates, go on a walk, have a book or video review, just about anything that would help you to have shared memories and events to journal.
Agree On A Day To Journal
One of the things that a long-distance relationship requires is time. A couple in a long-distance relationship should create time for each other to give birth to fun memories and be there for each other to record these memories. As mentioned in the previous journalling post, one of the points of having a relationship journal is to strengthen your bond and this is done when both of you can come together to share your emotions and put them down in your journal while making more memories.
You need to make out a day and time where you journal as a couple. Technology has made this easy because there are apps like team viewer that can help you access your partner's computer from wherever you are. With an app like this, you can journal together easily.
