Now ladies, you know that I have your best interests at heart. And for some women this post may come across like I do not love my kids. To be honest I love them something fierce. However….not in my bedroom.
Of course when they are not feeling well or needing extra snuggles they are welcome. This post is going to talk about how to create a bedroom atmosphere…no kids invited.
Now I don’t know about you but my child blowing out candles on a birthday cake isn’t a photo I want in my bedroom. My bedroom is for sex, sleep, and the occasional Netflix binge.
Obviously different seasons of life mean different circumstances. However, at this time my fourth babe (and last) is almost two. The days of middle of the night feedings and such are behind me.
My bedroom is no longer occupied by one of my sweet babes.
Reserve a space for you & your man
I say this from a place of complete love. But, we need a space that does not scream MOM & DAD. It represents who YOU are. Who you were before your uterus was occupied by little miracles.
My recommendation is to keep the photo options to photos of you and your spouse. There are plenty of other places to put and savor the memories of your kids.
Like I said earlier the bedroom is for sex, sleep, and the occasional netflix binge. However, that doesn’t mean a t.v. When we watch something in bed it is on my laptop not a T.V.
Removing the T.V. from the bedroom has increased our frequency of having sex as well as our quality of sleep.
There is something about the brain connection when we set boundaries on the extra things we are doing in bed (t.v. , reading, phone scrolling, etc). When you eliminate the electronics in the bedroom you will sleep better and have a better form of entertainment #whipandnaynay.
Having a relaxing space at home is important. And I am no stranger to shoving the extra laundry, shopping bags, or the things I don’t know what to do with into my bedroom.
Don’t get me wrong I am no clean freak. However, clutter has a way of making me feel like no matter how much I have accomplished in a day there is a never ending to do list. Leaving me feeling tense.
My recommendation is to find a different spot in the house to locate the clutter. Maybe this means it is time to donate to Goodwill or have a garage sale.
Having a relaxing bedroom is so important to be able to unwind and relax. It is about more than great sex but about better sleep and peace of mind.
In a nutshell:
Remove family photos-replace with photos of you and your spouse.
Say goodbye to the tv-replace with some R rated shenanigans.
Remove clutter- less stuff = less stress.
Have fun 😉
Over & Out,
