Needing a little help in the sex department?
It’s common for most of us (especially while trying to conceive) at some point in our lives to be less than in the “mood for nude” and often embarrassed to talk about it. So, what can do you that doesn’t involve medication to bring your “sexy back”?
1. Get more rest!
Rest is essential for maintaining a healthy libido. If you’re chronically sleep deprived your body will likely have no interest in sex. Make the bedroom your sanctuary with comfortable bedding, dim lights, essential oils, whatever makes you feel relaxed and at ease. NO electronics!
2. Reduce stress.
Stress kills the libido all on level of ourselves - physically, emotionally and psychologically. Trying some mindfulness techniques like meditation, yoga (legs-up-the-wall pose is one of my favorite (http://bit.ly/Legsupthewallpose)), or journaling.
Self-pleasure can re-energize your libido and bring connection and confidence back to yourself. Also, a reminder of you what you desire, so you can share with your partner :)
3. Aphrodisiac Foods. There are many foods said to increase the libido because of their antioxidants and phytonutrients including: Dark Chocolate, Oysters, Figs, Pomegranates (according to IIN, it improves sex drive and mood in both women and men by raising testosterone. Also, can have positive impact on sperm quality!) and Almond and other tree nuts assuming you’re not allergic.
