How do you stay intimate during the holidays? The holiday season can be a stressful time during “normal” years. With a global pandemic, it can be even more so than usual! It’s important to practice self-care to mitigate stress, but did you know that practicing intimacy with your partner is just as important? With Thanksgiving behind us and Christmas rapidly approaching, it can be easy to lose yourself in the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Don’t let that happen! In fact, here are 3 great ways to promote intimacy during this wonderful and yet stressful time of the year!
Connect Every Morning
Whether it’s having a cup of coffee together or going out for a brisk walk, have some quiet time together to share and reflect before the start of the day. Doing this at the end of the day when you are both tired or stressed can be not as effective. Start every morning right and it will strengthen your bond as a couple!
SHOW PHYSICAL AFFECTION
We aren’t just talking about sex here! Show physical affection throughout the day. In fact, kissing passionately is one of the most important things you can do to keep your relationship hot. It prompts an immediate rush of hormones, and you can keep that momentum going for some amazing sex later on. Also, with all the time spent on holiday plans, don’t be afraid to have a quickie!
Intimacy is more than just the physical aspect. It’s proven that keeping you and your partner in a good mood is critical to a happy and healthy sex life. Make it a point to say positive things about each other throughout the day. It’s a fact that having a good association with a person leads to better and more frequent sex!
