7 tips for improving the lives of young parents

by Laurence-Emmanuelle Bédard Published on May 1, 2015

Time, energy and intimacy are the cornerstone of any healthy relationship yet are sorely lacking in the lives of so many young couples these days. If your bed has only been used for sleep since the kids arrived, these tips are for you!

Sleep more

Nothing kills a couple’s sex life like fatigue! You work so hard all day and have so many chores to do when you get home that you’re too exhausted to make love. But here’s the thing: if you want to keep the magic alive, you have to get enough sleep!

Take care of yourself

Some women are too embarrassed to undress in front of their partner or make love after giving birth because their bodies have changed. But the simple truth is that to be your best, most seductive self, you have to learn to accept and take care of yourself.

Exercise more and eat better

One way to feel sexier is to exercise more and cut out the junk food. Working out reduces stress, increases your libido and, along with a healthy diet, gives you more energy!

Schedule date nights

Why not heat up the romance with a weekly date night? You don’t have to go out every time or spend a fortune. The important thing is to spend quality time with your honey.

Let your passion simmer

Thinking about your next romantic encounter and building the anticipation is a great way to spice up your sex life. It can turn a mundane encounter into a hot tryst!

Accept that you’re from Venus and that he’s from Mars

When it comes to sex, men and women aren’t always on the same page, so it’s important for each partner to take the other’s needs into consideration.

Put your relationship first

Young parents should strive to take care of each other like they did before the kids arrived. You can’t expect to have a strong and fulfilling relationship unless you put time and effort into it.
