After 9 PM, Happy Couples Do These 11 Things
Dec 28, 2018 by apost team
After a long day of work, it’s important to spend some time with your partner before you go to sleep. Even if you only have a few minutes, you must make the most of the time you have. Enjoy each other by talking, snuggling, and showering them with love. Here are 11 things you should do to foster a healthy relationship:
1. Silence or Turn off The Cell Phones
Are you one of the people who suffer from social media dependency? Did you know that it can suppress the release of oxytocin, which is essential for intimacy and bonding? Cell phones should be off or silenced no later than 9 pm.
2. Leave Work Behind
Some jobs are easier than others to forget. However, you must try to overlook your work emails, planning to be productive tomorrow, and all the other stresses that come along with your position. Pillow talk is a vital part of any association. It helps you forget work, family, and financial troubles and connect. Plus, this emotional connection is much needed for a healthy relationship.
3. Go To Bed Together
You can maintain both intimacy and warmth in your relationship if you go to bed at the same time. If one person goes to bed earlier than the other, it can cause strain in the romance department.
4. Stick to a Routine
Did you know that a routine can do wonders for your brain and your relationship? When programmed, your mind will automatically get sleepy as bedtime approaches. Psychologists also confirm that a set schedule can help to build trust and intimacy in a relationship.
5. Have Heart-to-Heart Talks
Ending the day on a positive note is a fantastic way to start the next day the same. Take just a few minutes before you go to sleep to express positive feelings to your spouse. Make sure they know how much you love them before you go to sleep.
6. Never Argue
If there are significant matters that must be discussed, save them for the next day. Never go to bed angry or arguing. Not only will it make sleep complicated, but it will also put a damper on tomorrow.
7. Make it a Kid-Free Zone
The bedroom should be a special place that's for adults only. Children should not sleep with their parents and should be encouraged to go back to their bed when they are scared.
8. Make it a Pet Free Zone
While snuggling with Fido might seem like a good idea, it can be bad for your relationship. Cats and dogs belong anywhere but the bed.
9. Skip the Alcohol
Alcohol is often used to help people relax. However, it can cause you significant problems in the morning. If you drink too much, you might have a hard time getting up and feel hungover.
10. Engage in a Sensual Massage
Nothing feels better than a gentle massage to sore muscles. The intimate touch from your partner can make things just feel better. Plus, it will help strengthen your connection too.
11. Always Cuddle
Cuddling is essential in any happy relationship. There should be plenty of hugs, kisses, petting, and snuggling. To strengthen your bond, you must create a loving and caring union that is unbreakable.
