1. Get your head in the game!
Yes, sex takes a certain amount of energy, which moms often funnel into their kids, their careers and other responsibilities instead of themselves. But having sex with your partner is one of the best ways you can relieve stress and feel more connected to your relationship and yourself.
If you find you’re in the habit of reviewing all the reasons you can’t or shouldn’t have sex right now (“I feel fat,” “I need these 15 extra minutes of sleep”), try thinking instead of all the benefits—and thenstop thinking so much and just do it!
2. Start making time for sex.
You plan for everything else as a busy mom, so why not plan for intimacy? The sad truth is that things usually don’t get accomplished unless we plan for them because we’re too busy. Begin to anticipate what needs to be done in order to allow the “planned event” into your schedule.
You’re worth it (and so is he).
3. Spice things up in bed.
Sometimes things can get redundant in the bedroom. Kick it up a notch by doing things you’ve never done before. Try different positions or locations. You know what they say: if you keep doing the same old thing, you’re going to get the same old results.
Having sex isn’t going to happen unless you make it happen. We’re all too busy and too tired, but it’s one of the best ways to lovingly connect with your partner physically, spiritually and emotionally.
Facilitating a satisfying, vibrant sex life is a critical component of marriage and one that women can sometimes abandon once the demands of family expand in quantity and import. Women often serve as the CEO of the family—coordinating schedules, logistics, long/short term goals—basically making sure the entity is running smoothly.
This is a difficult and consuming job, so sex sometimes falls off the radar. Women feel justified in this, almost like a martyr, sacrificing everything for their family. But there’s a secret. Sex is not only important for the individual and the couple but also for the entire family. Exploring the value of sex is critical in helping women prioritize sexual intimacy in their lives.
