Improving Lifestyle for Better Sex
A healthy body and lifestyle mean a healthy sex life. Sex is very important in a woman’s life. In a long-term relationship it can keep you feeling closer to your partner, which in turn makes you happier, not to mention it burns calories!
All too often, women worry that they aren’t having enough sex, but everybody is different, so what you should be focusing on is healthy habits in your lifestyle which can then impact your sex life. We like to focus on easy lifestyle habits to start implementing in your life.
Exercise not only benefits your body, but your mind. Releasing endorphins, it lifts your mood and makes you feel generally happier. It also affects libido – your desire to actually have sex. So, when you start worrying about how often you should be having sex, maybe look to this as your pointer.
Alcohol and Caffeine
Alcohol in moderation can be a great way to relax yourself with your partner, but don’t forget that alcohol is a depressant. It can cause depressive moods and anxiety, which of course aren’t good for your sex life. We recommend a moderate intake of 1-2 alcoholic drinks a day. Caffeine should also be limited. Like alcohol, it has some benefits in moderation, but more than two cups a day can have a detrimental effect. It works to constrict the flow of blood and this affects both men and women.
Relaxation and Yoga
Stress affects many areas of your life, not to mention your sex life. Being overly stressed or anxious can throw your hormones into disarray, meaning that your sex drive is low. Practicing relaxation, meditation, or yoga can help reduce and control these factors. You can’t control stressful things happening to you, but you can control how you handle them. We recommend a gentle yoga practice 1-2 times a week (or more!).
