As you grow older, it’s easy to lose that spark in the bedroom. Boredom, loss of adventurousness, physical ailments, and other problems can overcome even the healthiest of relationships over time, causing a loss of libido and creating emotional distance. But keeping intimacy alive can have profound effects on your life.
Research has shown that healthy people have better sex lives. Fit people enjoy sex more and have a lower chance of dealing with a sexual dysfunction that can impair their love life. If you’re experiencing a loss of intimacy, there are steps you can take to reclaim it. Here’s how to feel sexy again.
#1: Be Consistent
To keep your libido revved up you should:
Exercise regularly (keyword: “regularly”). Your arousal depends in large part on how well blood flows through your body. Regular aerobic exercise can help keep the heart pumping and the blood flowing. Eat right. Maintain your health by eating a diet low in fats and sugars and high in fiber and good nutrition. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, plenty of whole grains, and a good daily amount of low-fat dairy products.
Protein should come in the form of fish, poultry, and lean meats. Sleep well. Good, healthy sleep gives your body the chance to refresh and recuperate. Stop bad habits. Alcohol and tobacco can harm sexual function and can negatively affect your overall health. Also, don’t forget those kegel exercises, for both men and women!
Partners with a satisfying sex life talk to one another; those with an unsatisfying one need to talk to one another.
Know what you want and speak that. Voice what you like and share your concerns. Tell your partner about changes in your body that worry you along with any other issues that bother you about your sex life. Describe what makes you feel good. Your partner can’t satisfy you if he/she doesn’t know what you desire. Don’t criticize. Focus on what he/she is doing
