Adrienne Laursen, licensed marriage and family therapist, knows that winter blues can often translate to the bedroom. She offers 4 tips for couples to combat those hum-drum days and light the fire this winter.
1. Schedule couple time: Adrienne suggests couples intentionally spending time together each day. Deliberately set time aside where you can focus on and speak about your relationship.
2. Give yourself a makeover: This is not a one-way street. Put a little extra effort into getting ready, grooming, bedroom attire. Ask yourself, "Would I want to have sex with me if I looked like this?" Seriously.
3. Make the bedroom sacred: If your kids or animals sleep in your bed, take some time away from those barriers even if it's just once a week.
4. Don't forget sensual touch: You can have couple time without having sex, there's lots of ways to show affection outside the confines of intercourse.
