Go to These 10 Couple Classes if You Want a Sweet and Fun Relationship

A person can only do the exact same thing so many times before they get bored, so it’s in your best interest to do new things with your partner. Grab your partner’s hand and go to these ten artsy, helpful, and sexy couple classes you can take together for a sweet and fun relationship.

1. Relieve Stress in Massage Class

Join your partner for a sensual, stress-relieving experience that will calm your nerves and put you at ease. Make sure you pay attention to the pleasure points that cause the most satisfaction so you can please your partner after those busy, stressful days at the office. You just might put them in the mood for some frisky fun after you work out all of their kinks.

2. Express Yourself in Acting Class

Honest, open communication is a priority for any couple that desires long-lasting relationship success. Performing scenes and monologues in front of others will improve your ability to communicate, remove barriers that prevent authentic dialogue, and make you feel more comfortable with being vulnerable with you partner.

3. Mix a Cocktail in Mixology Class

Alcohol is tons of fun (as long as you don’t get carried away with it), but you can’t deny that going to the bar isn’t the most affordable thing in the world. You will discover tasty drink recipes that will make your partner’s taste-buds scream with delight. In addition, you’ll be able to impress your friends with professional-quality cocktails that leave them begging for more.

4. Make Tasty Treats in Cooking Class

If you’re a grown adult, there is no excuse for not having a grasp on how to cook meals at home. Also, if only one half of the relationship is responsible for all meal preparation due to the other half not having a clue what to do in the kitchen, you’ll now be able to split this chore as equals for a more fair relationship. You will become able to woo your partner by surprising them with breakfast in bed or an elaborate romantic dinner after work. (Don’t forget to take the kids to a sitter so you can enjoy a precious moment with just the two of you!)

5. Shake Your Money-Maker in Dance Class

Fellas: I know some of you don’t like to dance, but the odds are likely that you wife or girlfriend loves it. Even if you feel silly, think about how much fun she would have in a swing, tango, or ballroom dancing class. You’ll also get some much-needed exercise that will help you lose weight and be more confident in your body.

6. Pursue Fitness in a Group Exercise Class

It can be hard to find the motivation to exercise alone, so check out the group exercise class schedules at your area gyms. Many gyms, such as the YMCA and Anytime Fitness, offer a wide variety of exercise classes that are suitable for a range of experience levels and personal preferences. Some common offerings include boot camp, yoga, kickboxing, water aerobics, and group power (a resistance training class with movements synchronized to empowering music). Find something suitable for your goals that you can both agree on, and get moving!

7. Create Something Meaningful in Art Class

Whether you want to make a painting, compile a scrapbook, or sew a quilt is entirely up to you. You’ll be able to combine your talents to create something meaningful as a team, a bonding experience that no happy couple could argue with. As an added bonus, you’ll be able to create meaningful homemade gifts that impress your friends and save you money during birthdays and holidays.

8. Prepare for an Overseas Trip in Language Class

Traveling to new, exciting, exotic countries is an amazing experience, but it can be a bit stressful if you don’t have a grasp on the native language. Plan an overseas trip with at least a year to spare and take a language class so you’ll both be able to talk to the locals without depending on a language book for the entire trip.

9. Improve Your Pad in a Home Improvement Class

If you’d like to do some home remodeling, check out stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s in your area and ask if they offer any classes on the projects you would like to pursue.

10. Make Your Partner Say, “Mmm,” in Kama Sutra Class

Who wouldn’t like to have a more explosive and pleasurable sex life with their partner? Talking about sex might be considered taboo in some cultures, but it shouldn’t be. There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve intimacy with a person you love and care about very much. Going to a Kama Sutra class will teach you new ways to explore your partner’s body that you never thought of before, and will help you become more comfortable with communicating your desires in bed.

If you’ve ever taken couple classes with your partner, please tell us all about it in the comments.

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

30 Small Habits To Lead A More Peaceful Life

In today’s world, true peace must come from within us and our own actions. Here are 30 small things you can do on a regular basis to increase your overall sense of harmony, peace, and well-being:

1. Don’t go to every fight you’re invited to

Particularly when you’re around those who thrive on chaos, be willing to decline the invitation to join in on the drama.

2. Focus on your breath

Throughout the day, stop to take a few deep breaths. Keep stress at bay with techniques such as “square breathing.” Breathe in for four counts, hold for four counts, then out for four counts, and hold again for four counts. Repeat this cycle four times.

3. Get organized and purge old items

A cluttered space often creates a cluttered spirit. Take the time to get rid of anything you haven’t used in a year and invest in organizational systems that help you sustain a level of neatness.

4. Stop yourself from being judgmental

Whenever you are tempted to have an opinion about someone else’s life, check your intentions. Judging others creates and promotes negative energy.

5. Say ‘thank you’ early and often

Start and end each day with an attitude of gratitude. Look for opportunities in your daily routine and interactions to express appreciation.

6. Smile more

Even if you have to “fake it until you make it,” there are many scientific benefits of smiling and laughing. Also, pay attention to your facial expression when you are doing neutral activities such as driving and walking. Turn that frown upside down!

7. Don’t worry about the future

As difficult as this sounds, there is a direct connection between staying in the present and living a more peaceful life. You cannot control the future. As the old proverb goes, “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do, but it won’t get you anywhere.” Practice gently bringing your thoughts back to the present.

8. Eat real food

The closer the food is to the state from which it came from the earth, the better you will feel in eating it. Choose foods that grew from a plant over food that was made in a plant.

9. Choose being happy over being right

Too often, we sacrifice inner peace in order to make a point. It’s rarely worth it.

10. Keep technology out of the bedroom

Many studies, such as one conducted by Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have connected blue light of electronic devices before bed to adverse sleep and overall health. To make matters worse, many people report that they cannot resist checking email and social media when their cell phone is in reach of their bed, regardless of the time.

11. Make use of filtering features on social media

You may not want to “unfriend” someone completely, however you can choose whether you want to follow their posts and/or the sources of information that they share.

12. Get comfortable with silence

When you picture someone who is the ultimate state of peace, typically they aren’t talking.

13. Listen to understand, not to respond

So often in conversations, we use our ears to give us cues about when it is our turn to say what we want to say. Practice active listening, ask questions, process, then speak.

14. Put your troubles in a bubble

Whenever you start to feel anxious, visualize the situation being wrapped in a bubble and then picture that sphere floating away.

15. Speak more slowly

Often a lack of peace manifests itself in fast or clipped speech. Take a breath, slow down, and let your thoughtful consideration drive your words.

16. Don’t procrastinate

Nothing adds stress to our lives like waiting until the last minute.

17. Buy a coloring book

Mandala coloring books for adults are becoming more popular because of their connection to creating inner peace.

18. Prioritize yourself

You are the only person who you are guaranteed to live with 24 hours a day for the rest of your life.

19. Forgive others

Holding a grudge is hurting you exponentially more than anyone else. Let it go.

20. Check your expectations

Presumption often leads to drama. Remember the old saying, “Expectations are premeditated resentments.”

21. Engage in active play

Let your inner child come out and have some fun. Jump, dance, play, and pretend!

22. Stop criticizing yourself

The world is a hard enough place with more than enough critics. Your life is not served well by being one of them.

23. Focus your energy and attention on what you want

Thoughts, words, and actions all create energy. Energy attracts like energy. Put out what you want to get back.

24. Assign yourself “complaint free” days.

Make a conscious decision not to complain about anything for a whole day. It might be harder than you think and the awareness will stick with you.

25. Surround yourself with people you truly enjoy being in the company of

Personalities tend to be contagious, and not everyone’s is worth catching. Be judicious in your choices.

26. Manage your money

Financial concerns rank top on the list of what causes people stress. Take the time each month to do a budget, calculate what you actually spend and sanity check that against the money you have coming in.

27. Stop trying to control everything

Not only is your inner control freak sabotaging your sense of peace, it is also likely getting in the way of external relationships as well.

28. Practice affirmations

Repeat positive phrases that depict the life and qualities you want to attract. It may not come naturally to you, but it works.

29. Get up before sunrise

Personally witnessing the dawn brings a unique sense of awe and appreciation for life.

30. Be yourself

Nothing creates more inner discord than trying to be something other than who we really are. Authenticity breeds happiness.
