More Time for Bedtime

March 17, 2017

in the generous life

When you climb into bed at night, how do you feel?

Most of us do too much and we’re physically and/or emotionally spent by bedtime. It’s hard to be intimate with your sweetie when you’re tired and you know you need to be up in a few hours for another busy day.

Yes, this is nag for slowing down and taking more time for those things that are important. Give yourself more time in the evening to take care of yourself and to connect with your man.

More Time for Bedtime - Take care of yourself and connect with your man.

Give yourself a stopping point in the evening. Relax a bit. Invite your husband to bed a little early and take the time to talk about your day, snuggle, make love, and share a little pillow talk.

It’s really not wasted time to rest more before or after sleep (what I’ve suggested might work better in the morning before your day starts). It’s an investment in self-care and intimacy, which is always a good thing for your marriage.

Taking good care of you, means the people in your life will receive the best of you, rather than what’s left of you.  Carl Bryan

Great thoughts – and this is a very important practice to nurture, because once the paradigm of shared intimacy and ‘pillow talk’ is lost, it’s almost impossible to regain.
