Busyness Is NOT The Reason For The Season!
This holiday season don’t be too busy for your marriage. #MarriageTip
This holiday season don’t be too busy for your marriage BED! #SexTip
I ran those two tweets recently, and I want to expand on the idea here. I’ve always been a people watcher, and what I see during the holidays both amuses and terrifies me. It seems a growing number of people think the reason for the holiday season it to rush, rush, rush till you drop. Do
as much as more than you can, and feel guilty about the things you didn’t do. I realise lack of sleep is the gift that keeps on giving (or taking, actually) but it’s a gift we should all reject.
Most of us are far too busy the rest of the year, and adding ANYTHING to that is making a bad situation worse. One of the things that suffers when we’re too busy is our marriage. A good marriage requires time together. And not just time, we need calm, unhurried, unstressed, non-exhausted time.
Beyond your marriage in general, this is a major issue for your sex life. You can probably desire and enjoy sex even after a way-too-long day, but your wife can’t. If you nag her enough she might give you mercy sex to shut you up, but with most of her energy going to not falling asleep before you finish it’s not going to be good sex. If you don’t want your wife to turn into a sexual Grinch from now until 2018 you need to find a way to have a sane pace of life during the holidays.
This holiday season do less and enjoy what you do more!
