As well as an opportunity to look deeply into each other's eyes, this is a chance to add playfulness and a sense of humor to your relationship, all of which are important components of a successful relationship.
Psychotherapist Esther Perel encourages couples to introduce play to their relationship; be that in or out of the bedroom. Play is an essential component of personal and social wellbeing, she says, that allows us to take risks and get creative.
