Play board games/phone games
A healthy couple is that who competes well. Don’t they say “love is war”? There may not be knights and swords but your love is a battle of talent. Be that couple that brings out the fun in nostalgia and dust off the old monopoly and chess boards. You can always have a friendly game to destroy each other. Furthermore, if not the board game then play a game of Pictionary, ludo or scribble on your phone instead.

Talk about your sex life
Let’s face it. Intimacy in a relationship plays a big part. Being stuck at home might get you bored enough to indulge in an intimate act. Or, it might not faze you at all. Moreover, it is also a possibility that while maybe in the mood or your partner might not. It may seem something small but the frustration can lead to a heated argument. Hence, the important thing to do here is to talk out loud about your sex life. It is not embarrassing to want to do it or not wanting to. In fact, it is about communicating it to each other so that you are in sync. Plus, if you do end up having it, it is even more pleasurable.
Long-distance tip: We are not trying to rub salt on your wounds. We know it is not a possibility. However, you both can still tweak things up a little bit on text or video. Being a little naughty and showing that side of yours to your partner sparks up a couple relationship.
Help each other with housework
If you are staying together, it is important to help each other out when dividing the housework. In a time like this, consideration is the least you can expect out of your partner. Furthermore, it strengthens your trust on each other in the long run. You can help each other out to clean up the space, keep healthy or decorate your space.
Long-distance tip: If you are decorating your space, then you can always take the help of each other. It makes a difference to have an essence of the other close to you.
Spend individual times
Let’s face it. No matter how much you love and admire each other’s company, alone time is important. Every human needs their own time to reflect on their own thoughts and actions. While you can do several things together, you cannot ignore things that you love doing alone. It may be painting, writing and several others. Don’t ignore yourself in a relationship. When you lose track with yourself, you can’t really keep the other person happy either.
Long-distance tip: It is a hard time to stay apart. However, use the time to do the things you have always loved doing. Spend time with your family, cook your meals and pamper yourself to some skincare. Be happy for each other’s sake. Write secret letters to each other to give after everything is over. In the end, the longer the wait, the sweeter the kiss.
