People, whose love language is physical touch, often revel in the idea of cuddling with their partner. In addition to feeling warm and fuzzy, cuddling has some great health benefits including reducing stress, lowering blood pressure, and boosting your immune system. And with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, now is the best time to binge-watch a sappy rom-com, munch on your favourite snacks, and cuddle away.
Now, the way you cuddle with your partner says a lot about the bond you two share. So let’s wrap our heads around some of the common positions before we wrap or get wrapped.
What you could do here: With variety being the spice of life, ensure that the two of you take turns. Big spoons love being the little spoon too!
