Get intimate for Good Sleep

Cutting back on sleep for anyone is disastrous and often with high stress levels one is left tossing and turning. The biggest casualty at times, can be a relationship. Bad sleep doesn’t bode well for any relationship or marriage. It’s not just the social aspect but a healthy physical relationship has its benefits. The right intimacy can be good for both sexes, in many ways.

Men who sleep less

It is a well know scientifically backed fact that men who sleep less than five hours a night for one week have significantly lower levels of testosterone than when they have a full night’s sleep. Significantly, skipping sleep was found to reduce a young man’s testosterone levels by the same amount as aging 10 to 15 years, or 10 percent to 15 percent. Low testosterone has a host of negative consequences for young men, and not just in sexual behaviour and reproduction. It comes in the way of building strength, muscle mass and bone density. And majority men in the rat race are known to grapple with less sleep, lower testosterone and consequently unstable relationship apart from a host of other health outcomes. The sense of well being in general shows decline with less vigour and mood swings amongst men who are getting less sleep.

Women who sleep less

Given the work-life balance, apparently more women fall short of good sleep and hence are more susceptible to the fall outs. They develop all kinds of hormonal problems, depression, diabetes and probable risk of heart diseases. Depression being a common offshoot, it is known to interfere in a healthy, emotional and physical relationship and jeopardize what could have otherwise been a normal life. Women who sleep less also suffer from high anxiety levels and general fatigue, along with lower than usual libido. With decreased energies and lack of interest, it is natural for any chemistry, bond to fizzle.

Recharge and rescue the bond

Try following a sleep routine.. Engage in some social activity to keep your mojo going. Try and find time for even half an hour of exercise, preferably together ensure your bed and pillow, are good quality to help ease you. Reignite the fire by taking breaks often or at least utilizing a Sunday to sleep up and find some quality time together.
