4 Tips To Make Your Valentine’s Day Memorable

4 Tips To Make Your Valentine’s Day Memorable

Valentine’s Day![1] It comes only once a year and gives you the opportunity to express what you feel to your loved one in a special way. Everyone wants to be loved and be loved back in return: the feeling that someone cares about you and would be willing to go to any extent to prove their love to you is breathtaking.[2] Of course, this doesn’t mean you should be cold to your partner and only express love to them on Valentine’s Day. No! You should love each other consistently, but on Valentine’s Day, this is a day to celebrate that love and make the day special and memorable for the both of you.

The following are ways to make your valentine’s day memorable. #4 might actually surprise you:

1. Have a Plan

“Failure to plan is planning to fail.” Just as how you plan for your life, you should also put in similar efforts in planning for Valentine’s Day. In fact, if you don’t make plans early enough you might end up being locked out.[3] Since there are many love birds out there who share a similar goal, get ahead and make plans early—if possible together.[4]

So, what kind of plans should you make? Nothing can be more breathtaking to your partner than taking them back to where it started. Yes! On Valentine’s Day, you can decide to visit the place where you bumped into each other, that fateful restaurant where you two first met. So, go back to where it first began.

Make plans on the places you wish to visit: if your spouse loves massages, book a massage session. While making these plans, it is important to take into consideration the things that your partner likes. If he/she likes to go to a park, then make his/her day special by making arrangements in advance to the park to visit.

2. Special Gifts

I have to agree, choosing a gift for someone special might be quite a hectic task. Will he/she like it? Isn’t the gift too obvious? There will be a lot of questions running through your mind as your try and figure out the gift to surprise your significant other with.

Whether you decide to choose jewelry, clothes… you need to make it special. For instance, if you decide to surprise your partner with jewelry, you can make it special by customizing a message on the jewelry. What could be better than surprising your partner with an engagement ring on Valentine’s Day with a custom message “I will be yours forever.” The gifts you buy your partner on Valentine’s Days should be special and different from the ones you buy him/her on a day-to-day basis.

You don’t want to buy her the usual love card with an obvious message, do you? On the contrary, you can actually customize a romantic card and write in it a romantic message that is deep from your heart. This will make your significant other feel that your love for him/her is genuine.

Again, don’t just buy some chocolate. How about you order a chocolate in the shape of the love symbol with a breathtaking message written on it? The goal is to make Valentine’s Day special and different from what you two do on the other days.

3. Give Yourself

Everyone can buy expensive gifts with custom messages; your partner will appreciate your presence more. Try to connect with each other,[5] smile, laugh and cuddle. Let your actions communicate louder.

Try and get physical. I got your attention, right? The kind of physical I am talking about is go for walks in a park, take a 10-minute jog or even a pillow fight. Engage in anything physical that will make the day memorable and bring joy to both of you.

4. Set The Mood

The last thing you would want is to have an argument on Valentine’s Day. This is not the day to review all the wrongs you have done to each other; this is a special day for you and your partner to celebrate the love you feel for each other. The setting of the place needs to be romantic. You can have candles, flowers and a playlist of the songs you and your significant other likes.

You can also try watching the sunset together or even lying on the grass and count the stars as you cuddle. Try as much as possible to set a joyful and cheerful mood, let the tears shed on valentine’s day be the tears of joy and not of sorrow.

Conclusion

Since Valentine’s Day is a special day to celebrate love, it is important to ensure that the activities of the day make both you and your significant other happy. The goal is to make the day memorable!

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

Video Summary

1. It is easier.

When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

    If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

    5. It could lead to better sleep.

    Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

    6. It can help your skin.

    For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

    7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

    Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

    8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

    Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

    9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

    For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

    10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

      Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

      Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

      Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

      Sleep well with your naked body!

      With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

      Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
