For the past few days we have been talking a lot about the hell of parents confined to their homes with their children… But what about the couples who will have to support each other day and night in 20m2?
We may love each other very strongly, but living 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in contact with your partner promises to be sporty!
So how to take care of each other, not to hate each other and to love each other again and again?
For your couple to survive this complicated period and not end the confinement by no longer being able to kill you, here are some tips to take very seriously!
- 1 Reclaim space
- 2 Reserve time alone
- 3 Organize aperitifs in video with your friends
- 4 Do projects together
- 5 Start a spring cleaning
- 6 Continue to take care of yourself
- 7 Learn to communicate
- 8 Rediscover your sexuality
- 9 The HEYME wellness package
An exceptional situation, exceptional reorganization. You will have to learn to live and share a lot more time with your other half and it is important to lay the foundations for this new mode of operation. Everyone has different fears, needs and desires, you have to accept it, it’s normal. It’s up to you to establish rules and a structured routine to meet everyone’s expectations. For example, if you are teleworking, organize yourself so as not to disturb each other and leave enough room for the other person.
Reserve time alone
The days are going to be long and even with a lot of love no one is made to live together for so long. So we organize moments alone, we isolate ourselves, we go out shopping each in turn and we accept the other’s need for solitude. Try not to be glued to your partner all day. Save time just for you, to read, take a bath, call your family…
Organize aperitifs in video with your friends
Technology is wonderful and allows us to stay connected with our loved ones in these difficult times. Facetime, Whatsapp… there are many solutions available to you to schedule a video chat with your friends and share a fun time remotely together. Normally you would never have done this, so now is the time to experiment with a new concept and participate in the collective effort to fight the Covid-19 epidemic.
You can even organize a blind test to have fun and change your mind!
Do projects together
In this time of great uncertainty, making plans remains the best solution to get away from it all. Projecting yourself into the future is essential to keep your spirits up. A couple needs prospects and promises to hold on! So, we ask ourselves and we make plans for the future: travel, restaurant, dance lessons… It’s time to take stock of your couple and plan activities that you had put aside.
Start a spring cleaning
The sun is pointing the tip of its nose, summer time is coming… the signals of the great spring cleaning are there. We’re not going to lie to each other, it feels good, but we always push it back a little (a lot). So, with the confinement no more excuses, it’s the perfect time to take care of it. We sort, we wash, we put aside the winter things and we install the summer ones. With your other half, you can also take the opportunity to revamp your interior by changing the furniture, for example. An activity that will have the merit of keeping you busy and active for several hours.
Continue to take care of yourself
Clearly, just because you’ve been in a relationship for 3 years and anyway you won’t see anyone all day, doesn’t mean you have to let yourself go hanging out in your pajamas. At least not every day! This is important for your morale but also for your partner. So we keep the rhythm, we go to the shower, we do our hair, we brush our teeth and we even dress to stay on the couch.
You can schedule a “face mask” evening to give a little boost to your locked-up skin at home.
Learn to communicate
And if this situation was an opportunity to discuss as at the beginning? To rediscover and discuss subjects that are too often overlooked or forgotten? The other is a being full of surprises of which you still have many things to discover. Take the time to talk about the difficulties you have encountered, the happiness that the other brings on a daily basis and the way you see the future together. It’s time to reveal yourself and give yourself a little more.
Rediscover your sexuality
Confinement would stimulate our desire. This is what the increase in sales of sex toys and condoms suggests. Sometimes routine and lack of time make sex automatic. We tend to forget that it is above all a moment of shared pleasure. What could be better than getting together for several days to rediscover yourself and get out of your skills? You must not be afraid to ask the other what he/she likes, the caresses he/she likes or the words that stir up his/her excitement… Dare to reinvent yourself!
Courage, it will!
