Stress can have a detrimental impact on your libido, making it difficult to enjoy those intimate and special moments with your romantic partner. Luckily we can recommend a few strategies to help you cope with stress so you can revive your libido and live life to the fullest.
How Does Stress Affect You?
If you’re always dealing with stress at the office, your body is probably experiencing a ‘fight or flight’ response. Your brain is constantly releasing a cocktail of hormones that include cortisol and epinephrine (which is commonly referred to as adrenaline).
These hormones travel through your bloodstream and react with different organs, producing a range of symptoms including heart palpitations, dizziness, and lethargy to name a few. This physiological reaction can interfere with your ability to sustain an erection and can lead to erectile dysfunction down the line – which is every man’s ultimate nightmare.
Most stressed-out individuals also report having a low sex drive, but how can you combat this? Well, a straightforward solution involves daily exercise. A bit of cardio and weight lifting can release endorphins and help relieve temporary symptoms of stress. It can also have psychological benefits, as recent studies reveal that those who exercise regularly can properly manage their stress levels.
If you’re not a fan of fitness, try going for a brisk walk and disconnecting from your smartphone. It’s important to detach from work once you leave the office so you can unwind and enjoy some downtime.
Meditation can help relieve intense stress symptoms. There are numerous apps and YouTube videos out there that provide guided meditation, so we recommend setting aside anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour a day to ‘get in the zone.’
This relaxation technique can also help restore your libido by reducing those pesky stress hormones in the bloodstream. It can also help free the mind of negative thoughts that can impact your overall mental health.
