There are plenty of pills and potions on the market that claim to increase libido and ramp up sex drive. And studies have shown there are plenty of couples out there looking for answers. But simple, natural ways to boost your libido are available without e-mail-only offers and other less-than-reputable means.
It can be something as simple as removing the clutter from your bedroom. With all the piles of clothes, stacks of bills, and other signs of errands left undone, the bedroom is more a reminder of a stressful life rather than a romantic oasis. By removing the clutter, you’ll be helping your sex life by allowing yourself to focus on it, which might help make the rest of your life less stressful in the process.
Eliminating distractions, like the TV, is another easy step. This, like removing the clutter from your bedroom, will help you focus on being more in the moment. And who needs TV when you can create your own entertainment?
Changes in your lifestyle can also naturally increase your libido, and staying fit is one of those simple solutions for your sex life. Getting regular, moderate exercise can help improve the flow of blood to your sex organs.1 Exercising will also help you lose weight, which will also increase blood flow.2 Working out or getting some type of physical activity also releases endorphins in your brain, which have been linked to the release of hormones that ramp up the sex drive.
Watching what you put in your body is another way to remedy the libido issues you may be facing. Eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and getting plenty of vitamins and antioxidants can do wonders for overall health and the health of your sex life.3 If you are a smoker, quitting could be one of the best things you can do for your lungs and your libido. This will reinvigorate blood flow, increase stamina, and make you a lot more kissable.4 Drinking alcoholic beverages in moderation (overdoing it won’t do you any favors) is another tip for increasing your libido.
Self-esteem is something so simple it’s often overlooked in discussions about sex drive. If you feel better about yourself, chances are you’ll feel sexier. A lot of things go into feeling good about yourself, but some of the tips above—like staying fit, losing weight, and eating right—can also help with self-esteem. Or take some time to make yourself feel better by treating yourself to a massage, doing a little shopping, or simply taking time to relax. The better you feel about yourself, the better your sex life can be.
