Before now, either you or your partner are always on the move and returning home late thereby making you unable to spend some quality time together.
To make your relationship survive lockdown, try to be more creative and make the time spent together with your partner worth remembering. This is an ample time to take a look into the relationship and conduct re-evaluation to find out places you both need to work on.
As far as you don’t want to be among those relationships that will end after lockdown, try not to overdo anything, do not overwork yourself or stress your partner.
To shut down verbally or sexually is not a good idea for partners during tough times like this when staying more connected as one is nice. You can be affectionate, and sexual without having to do with intercourse and org*sm. Making out or having a hot shower with your partner during a lockdown or a massage can spice up the moment and calm down the stress you’re facing staying at home 24/7.
Spending more time at home with your partner isn’t all about the fun part, you both can assist yourselves to work from home, set different work desk, have alone time and even more.

Do not fall a victim, investigate before you invest so you don’t squander your savings as you will be needing more of it after the quarantine period.
6. Exercise daily and eat a good diet
Exercising daily can help you and your partner in managing stress and keep you away from the doctor. A good diet will also contribute to the building of a strong immune system and minimize your vulnerability to diseases.
Consider exercising within your apartment if you can’t go outside due to the pandemic. Keeping fit becomes more interesting when you’re doing it with someone you love.
7. Make out plans
Remember that the lockdown will come to an end definitely even if we’re very uncertain about it at the moment, I’m pretty sure it has not come to stay forever. The world is not sleeping on this, so what will be your next plan after this isolation period?
When the two of you brainstorm on different ideas, you will come to conclusions that will birth results to help you carry on with your tasks and responsibilities in life after the coronavirus quarantine period.
8. Show appreciation
We all are really passing through a lot in a time like this that we require more encouragement, appreciation and gratitude than ever, to keep going.
