Reduce Your Stress

It’s no secret that stress can negatively affect your sex drive, no matter how healthy you are.

According some research, females are particularly susceptible to the effects stress can have on one’s sex life

To help with stress try meditation, yoga, routine massages, working out, pilates, hiking and so much more.

Making this a consistent habit in your life will help fight off stress and bring a sense of balance and peace to your life.



When you’re exhausted you literally have zero energy to do the nasty. If you have a hectic lifestyle you probably suffer from a low sex drive.

You can boost your energy and sex drive by snagging in a nap during the day and making sure you get adequate rest at night.

If you have an iPhone there’s a feature that allows you to put your phone on DND for as long as you wish. Make it a priority to cut off the distractions and give your body, mind and spirit the rest it deserves.


Communicate With Your Partner

Unless you’re having sex by yourself you need to communicate properly with your partner.

Have open and honest conversations about what’s going on with your body, what you like and dislike in the bedroom, desires, needs, fantasies, all that!

These conversations will help maintain a stronger emotional connection get your sex back to how you remember it. The same way you open your legs, is the same way you open your mouth and communicate your needs.

Reduce Your Alcohol Intake

Lay off the liquor babe. If you weren’t aware too much alcohol can dampen your sex drive and can also impair your ability to perform in the bedroom.

Cutting down your liquor intake can also improve your overall health. It’s that simple, stick to one glass of wine and don’t go overboard when you’re out drinking with friends.


Remember You Are That Girl

Having self confidence in the bedroom can improve your sex drive in many ways. Try boosting your self-esteem and your sex drive by shifting the focus from your flaws to your attributes.

If you mentally feel like that girl your body will follow suit and so will your partner. Tap into your alter ego and let loose once you’re in the bedroom.

For all my chocolate lovers, history has shown chocolate’s power to improve sexual pleasure. Chocolate promotes the release of the chemicals like serotonin, which can produce some aphrodisiac and mood-lifting effects.
