Between busy days at work, the pressures of parenting, juggling too many obligations, and the bone-tired exhaustion that so many are feeling these days, there are so many factors that can take a toll on your sex life. But is there any way to bring desire back, even in the midst of all the stress and chaos? Fortunately, there is. By adding a few simple habits into your day, you can help spark a flagging sex drive back to life.

1. Practice body acceptance

Too many of us are unhappy with or critical of our bodies, and that can have a significant effect on your sex drive. If you’re dissatisfied with your body, it can be difficult to feel sexy and far too easy to feel self-conscious and want to stay covered up. Body acceptance is a way for you to appreciate your body exactly as it is right now. When you find yourself becoming critical of your body, try to limit your negative self-talk and instead focus on all of the great things your body allows you to do — including sex!

 

2. Manage your mood

Habits to boost your sex lifeIt’s no secret that stress can put a serious damper on your sex life. Reducing the effects of stress and maintaining a balanced mood can help your overall well-being and can help you maintain or rekindle desire. Without the mental preoccupations that stress can bring, you’ll find it easier to focus on more pleasant distractions! 

 

Your daily CBD routine can be a great way to support a balanced mood. If you’re feeling stressed and preoccupied when you’d rather be focusing your attention on your partner, try a Rapid Calming Melt to ease stress and support focus.

 

3. Seek out new adventures

It’s easy to fall into a rut with your daily routine, but everyone can benefit from a little excitement in their life! Finding a new activity or experience that you and your partner can enjoy together can not only help boost your mood, but also help strengthen your emotional connection. 

 

4. Stay in tune with your bodyHabits to boost your sex life

Most people are generally terrible at recognizing the cues their body sends, which can work against us in so many ways. Stress is felt in the body as well as the mind, and your body is likely telling you in any number of ways what it needs (more rest, more hydration, more movement). When you learn to recognize what your body is telling you, you’re more able to show yourself care, which translates into wanting to do more of what makes you feel good.

5. Brush up your communication skills

Just as our routines can fall into a rut, our relationships can, too. Over time, we begin to assume we know what our partner is thinking and end up communicating less and less. No matter how long you’ve known one another, maintaining open, honest, and consistent communication can make it easier for you and your partner to know each other as you are now, and to help keep you on the same page in all aspects of life.

Sure, great sex can help you get better sleep, but did you know that better sleep can help you have great sex? Sleep is one of the most important factors in our overall health and well-being, and getting poor sleep or not enough sleep can diminish your sex drive and leave you too tired for desire. Incorporating our new Sleep Gummies into your bedtime routine can support a consistent sleep schedule and may help you get more restful, restorative sleep.
