Well, if you have come here after reading the title, then I would like to clear the air, – it’s not that. Well, of course, that is an important part of a healthy relationship but that alone can’t sustain it (if you’re clueless about what we’re hinting at, we are talking about intercourse).
Now, let’s talk relationships. How happy are you in your relationship? Are you in your honeymoon phase, where you think your partner can do no wrong? Or has your relationship reached a plateau stage where you’re constantly looking for ways to spice it up?
If you are experiencing the latter stage, then we can help you get past this. Even if you’re pretty happy with the way things are, there’s no harm in looking for ways to maximize your happiness, is there?
So in order to add chaar -chaand to your love life, these are the 7 things you need to do with your partner before bed-time –
1. Make Dinner Together And Have It With Each Other
We agree there’s nothing as hot as seeing your man prepare a meal for you while you sit on the sofa. But we would advise you to divide and conquer when it comes to the kitchen. If you prefer to do the preparation, do that and help out your partner in the kitchen. This would not only be considerate of you, but it will also give you a chance to spend some quality time together.
Also, have that dinner with each other instead of having it in front of the idiot-box. Even this simple act of spending 20 minutes can bring you closer.
2. Look Into Each Other’s Eyes
You might think that this article has taken a filmy turn here with love blossoming in stolen glances. But it’s true. Don’t believe us? You will probably believe science then. According to some scientists, gazing into each other’s eyes fosters a deeper connection between people. This happens because it gives the impression that you find the other person attractive and that cements an existing connection.
3. Walk Down The Memory Lane Together
Some of my most memorable evenings with my husband have been the ones where we have spent our time chatting about the good old days, the fun times we had when we were dating each other. Looking back at your initial days as a couple can allow you to have a glimpse of each other’s perception and it will help you both to build on that. Remembering those happy times will also make you feel good about yourself and relieve you of the stress.
4. Give Each Other A Foot Rub
Okay, not just foot rub, you can even give each other a nice massage. Studies have found that couples who give each other massages are likely to be more satisfied with each other. Also, they say that massages enable people to lead stress-free lives. Now, if you are thinking where would you find the time to do so, then you would be surprised to know that even 15 minutes a week can benefit you tremendously!
5. Be Thankful To Each Other
A little appreciation or gratitude goes a long way in making a relationship last. Who doesn’t love to be acknowledged for their efforts? Acknowledge your partner’s efforts. If they made the dinner, thank them with a quick peck on the cheek before you turn in for the night. You can also show your gratitude by doing special gestures as getting them tea before bed, etc. This will strengthen your relationship.
6. Get Jiggy With Each Other
It doesn’t matter if you have two left feet, jiving with your partner is a far better way to spend your evenings than planting yourself in front of the T.V. Not only will it make you feel more active, it will also add a little romance to the whole situation. What better way to burn a few calories than scoring a few brownie points with your partner!
7. Karaoke Before Bed
No, we aren’t asking you to find a karaoke bar, you can just give those vocal cords of yours a workout at home. Singing or listening to someone sing before bed has positive effects on one’s mental health, which is probably why you see mothers singing lullabies to their kids before bed. This will not only be a fun way to bond, but it will also provide you relief from the stress of the day.
These activities allow you to connect with your partner in a more meaningful way, something that becomes impossible to do in the tight schedules of our everyday life. We understand that it’s inevitable to focus on your life and pay attention to the demands of your work, but you should take care to not leave your partner high and dry in all of this. After all, you promised to be with them in sickness and health, right?
Try these activities and let us know how it worked out for you. If you have any more suggestions that can help one be closer to their partner, share them with us in the comments section.
