Wake up earlier. Share a shower. Experiment on weekends.
In this urban jungle, spending quality time and special moments is a problem for many couples.
The most common time for making love is at night prior sleep or after waking up in the morning. But after a long and hectic day, people end up sleeping.
According to a report in New York Post, even if you do muster up a bit of energy before bed, the quality of sex might not be that satisfying as either both or one person is tired and "that moment" can be easily lost or hurried along in the bid to get to sleep.
Speaking about making love in the morning, people generally wake up with just enough time to get ready, in hand.
Even for morning person, exercise and regular morning routine remain their concern.
The report further points out top five tips for spicing it up.
1. Have sleep nights
So no one feels bad for possibly rejecting each other, choose a night/s during the week where no sex is to be had.
I know it might sounds boring but having some nights off can help to rekindle the spark (sometimes when it's not on tap so much you want it more). And with a few nights of solid sleep, there might be an increase in energy and overall satisfaction with sex too.
2. Have sex other times during the day
Is there another time that both suits you that is not before bed or first thing in the morning?
This is ideal if you both work from home or shift work, but the 9-5ers will have to choose another option or get creative.
3. Sex only on the weekends
Again, this might be reducing sex in order to get more enjoyment out of it. Wouldn't it be better if you could get more sleep during the working week and enjoy getting more playtime on the weekends?
You really can make up for sexless nights during the week in the span of two days.
4. Sex not before bed
Sex at night is sometimes the best option, but right before sleep time can often lead to a lack of effort.
Especially if you work and have children, sex before makeup is taken off, showers are had and teeth brushed is ideal.
The kids might be in bed, you both have a little more energy and then the more traditional unwinding before bed activities can commence.
It might not give you the most amount of time, but might give you a better mindframe to enjoy it with.
5. Set your alarm earlier in the morning
This is still cutting in to sleep time, but can be an option for those who get too tired at night.
Once again time might be limited but you can always share a shower later to extend the morning experience.
