Bae comes back from work looking all glump and tired. You know that there’s something up but can’t put a finger on it. Instead of asking him what the problem is and making things worse, you can diffuse the situation by cheering his mood up. Remember, you’re one of the few people in his life that he needs right now at his low point. If you’ve just started to date each other, you might not know how to handle him in such a situation. So you must be wondering how to destress your boyfriend among all the chaos. Trust me, as much as he needs his space, he also needs your love and support. Here are few cute ways to cheer your cupcake up. (I need to be thanked later for this #JustSayin)
Know how to destress your boyfriend by reading these top ten ways. Comfort your partner and let him know that you are there for him. No More Stress!
No extravagant gifts or gestures needed. A tight hug costs nothing but has the power to heal a broken spirit. If he breaks down in your arms, it’s alright. Men get emotional too. Allow him to feel his feelings and make peace with bitter memories. Your hug can help him feel safe and most importantly, loved.
If you’re good at poetry, put it down on paper. Most men may not admit this, but they’re suckers for mushy stuff. He’ll appreciate your thought and effort and feel connected to you emotionally. If poetry isn’t your thing, you can sing him a song and record it on video. A simple compliment too from the heart will do the trick as well.
A hot makeout session is what will definitely cheer the guy up. Slip into some sexy lingerie, put on a seductive face and turn the room into a romantic sanctuary. Make it a night for him to remember. He’s bound to wake up with a smile the morning after *Wink*
They say that the way to a man’s heart is through his belly. Cook him his favourite meal or bake him a fresh batch of brownies. If cooking is not your scene, then you can always order in pizza and Netflix & Chill. Trust me, both options are too tempting to not give a shot.
My mother always told me that when someone is upset, you must not add fuel to the fire. What that means is that if he’s in a horrible mood it’s best to let him vent. Your opinions or words can make things blow out of proportion. Give the guy some space and only talk to him the next day when things have cooled down and he is calm. That’s the time when his mind is fresh and his mood is jolly.
Still wondering how to destress your boyfriend? Well a hot shower will never disappoint you. Never underestimate the power of a long, hot shower. It has healing effects on the body and both you and he could really need some relaxing time to blow off the steam. Perhaps, even engage in shower sex - that’s pretty hot (If you know what I mean) *Wink*
Has he always wanted that camera lens or is that book still lying in his cart? Buy it for him. Spoil your man. Even a bouquet of flowers will instantly make him feel like a ball of mush. Buying him a beer or taking him out to dinner will make him happy too.
Boys can be such big babies sometimes! When he’s mad, instead of arguing with him, why don’t you pamper him? Baby talk to him and shower him with hugs and kisses. In fact, hugging and kissing increase a person’s oxytocin levels. The higher the level jumps - the happier he’ll feel.
A simple act of making an effort to smell good can help de-stress your boyfriend. The scent of a woman has a calming effect on a man and he’ll want to stick to you like a bee that’s attracted to a honeycomb. Will you be his honey bunny, that’s the question?
Just the sound of your voice makes him feel calmer and happier. If he’s told you via text that’s he’s feeling low, ask him to step out and talk to him for a while. Hearing your sweet voice is bound to make him want to face the rest of the day like a warrior. Unless he’s really having a bad day and is travelling, you can also send him these adorable text messages. These won’t only help him cheer up, but he’ll also know that you’ve been thinking about him and knows that his mood indirectly affects yours too. So ladies, go ahead and send him ANY of these texts:
1. ‘I’ve got a surprise planned for you that’ll cheer you up. Can’t wait for you to get home.’
Knowing that his love is waiting to meet him, is sure to put a smile on his face. And the anticipation of the surprise will have him get quite excited.
Plan a night with his three favourite things + you!
Believe it or not, this works every single time.
Because sometimes he finds comfort in the fact that his girl’s got his back.
Physical activity is a great way to de-stress, so why not plan a fun workout evening?
Plot twist: This is a fantastic way to change his mood from bad to oh-so-turned on.
Being a little cheesy goes a long way in fixing a bad mood.
When he is having a bad day, let him know how amazing he is and how much he means to you.
Now, who wouldn't cheer up after reading a loving message like that?!
Trust us, these three simple words work like magic!
‘Cause sometimes, men are all about the logic. *Wink*
I’m sure you’d feel like home if you were with me right now.
I’m uncertain about many things in life, but you’re not one of those things.
Let’s make memories tonight, babe!
May our mutual love for pizza help us conquer all obstacles.
Not just him, but this news can make ANYONE happy.
My walking, talking miracle you are!
