Married life, especially with kids, isn’t a walk in the park.
The stress of working to make ends meet and even raising a family in itself can send a couple’s sex life into a downward spiral.
So, yes, stress from work and raising kids are two major reasons most couples no longer enjoy getting physically intimate.
Hubbie and I both work, although I work from home (it doesn’t make my job less stressful) and we have two kids under 3.
We are usually spent at the end of the day such that getting intimate is the last thing on our minds. We just want to hit the bed and get some few hours of (interrupted) sleep.
And in the morning?
I bet the last thing on our minds and for a lot of couples is getting busy between the sheets.
The mind is usually filled with how to prepare everyone for the day – breakfast, school runs, and work.
In the midst of all these, when exactly do we have time to be a ‘couple’?
I realise that,
If we continue this way, it’s just a matter of time, we won’t both know the way to each other’s… Ahem… You know…
Also, just as with anything, if we wait for a perfect time, we’ll not get anything done.
Then I thought – if we are too exhausted to do anything sexual at the end of the day, when then can we?
You guessed right.
There are many amazing benefits of morning sex, and I’ll share six of them with you:
1. It helps you to connect with your spouse
There are innumerable articles on the internet on the benefits of waking up early.
Indeed, there is something magical about this special time of the day.
The ambience of tranquillity that accompanies the breaking of the day empowers you to be productive in whatever you choose to do.
This is because the day is just starting and you’re spared of distractions. Perhaps the only distraction you’re faced with is the thoughts of your mind.
The tranquillity of the morning will help you and your spouse to connect so sweetly and improve intimacy in your marriage.
And improved intimacy leads to a better marriage.
2. You’re more relaxed instead of exhausted, so it feels better
While you and your spouse can get it on even when you’re tired (depending on the level of your tiredness), sex is more enjoyable when you’re relaxed.
You’re more relaxed because you’re yet to deal with whatever the day has in stock for you.
You’ll also have some energy for the task.
Because, let’s be honest, this thing is work, and requires some level of energy.
If you both have a good night rest, you’ll surely feel rejuvenated enough in the morning to put in the needed work.
And you’ll have a great time together!
3. It puts you in a good mood for the day
Morning sex might make your coworkers wonder why you’re beaming and humming your favorite song.
Aside from the fact that some of the hormones released during physical intimacy are mood elevators, the sheer fact that you had a great time with your sweetheart is enough to put you in a good mood throughout the day.
4. Helps you to cope with stress
When you’re in a good mood, you’re more likely to manage the day’s stress better and be more productive.
Also, being in a good mood will help you to relate with others better because you come off as relatable and accommodating.
5. Keeps your marriage from sexlessness
The demands of daily living and raising a family have caused a lot of marriages to lose their spark.
So many marriages have become sexless because there never seems to be a perfect time for couples to get it on.
Getting it on with your spouse in the morning will save your marriage from the abyss of sexlessness which can lead to marital problems.
6. Keeps your marriage from temptation
I don’t know if this is true for everyone because our sexual appetite differs.
But I think if you have a satisfying romantic time with your spouse in the morning, you’ll be less tempted to get it on with another person.
Like I wrote earlier, this isn’t the same with everyone because some people still cheat on their spouses despite having an enviable sex life.
However, we can’t deny the fact that sexual dissatisfaction can make one vulnerable to cheating.
I’m not making excuses for cheating, but in reality, it happens. Although not justifiable.
While you and your spouse can have the best of sex any time of the day, this post is just to open your eyes to the awesomeness of getting it on when you’re yet to be encumbered with daily activities.
You don’t have to do this every morning because it’s not even feasible (for everyone). Just don’t let the morning of each day pass you by without utilising its power to enrich your marriage.
