The bedroom is for sleep and intimacy only!

We’ve all done it: used the bed as a makeshift desk with papers strewn across the covers as we catch up on the bills. And that TV in the bedroom that calls like a siren for a bit of late night channel surfing? Computer on the nightstand begging to search for the perfect cardigan sweater at 11 p.m.?

Guilty, guilty, and more of the same. The bedroom should be reserved for some serious nookie or sweet, blissful sleep, period. Get rid of any and all distractions and get ready for, well, one of the two sanctioned activities.

Just be sure to close the door behind you.
