At the end of a long day, sex may be the farthest thing from you mind.
You may simply be too tired for sex.
Experts will often suggest that you push through the tiredness and get intimate with your partner, as they extol the many health benefits of sex. However, a good night’s rest may be just what the doctor ordered, as sleep actually improves your relationship and your sex life. Research suggests that sleep can offer the following benefits:
Sleep staves off conflict. Couples who get more sleep have fewer arguments. This is no surprise. I know how cranky I get when I’m sleep deprived — and my husband knows it too!
