Life can get crazy and we all know it. Children, jobs, pets, stress, illness and working out can affect even those of us with good sex drives. Everyone gets in a slump sometimes and can’t even fathom having sex or being intimate, it just seems too exhausting. While I sat thinking about that, I decided to do some research on different ways to enhance or increase our sex drives.

When I say ‘safe’ ways I mean without pills or supplements. We’re talking about natural, healthy ways to increase your sex drive that can help you stay healthy as well.  Imagine that, two birds with one stone!  While I was scouring the internet, I came across a few different ways to do so, and figured why not share them with you.  So here you go, my 7 safe ways to increase your sex drive. Enjoy!

Get Your Sleep–no, not a 10 minute cat nap at your desk, I’m talking about a good night’s sleep. The experts say a person should get at least 8 hours of sleep a night, but if you’re anything like me, 8 hours is too much when you’re used to getting 5-6 hours instead.  So I get at least that much a night, more if possible, but not always. Getting a good night’s rest not only helps you stay healthy, it also relieves stress levels. And relieved stress levels can lead to better sex, which in return can help increase your sex drive.

Exercise Regularly–yes, I know, you’re whining now,  ‘I don’t have time to exercise, and it’s too hard…’  blah, blah, blah. I don’t like to exercise either so I don’t mean to go sign up for a gym membership and sweat it out. No, I’m talking about walking, at least that’s what seems to be the easiest. If you want to go join a gym and improve your body and health, by all means do it, but if not, simple walking exercises count too. If you live in the country on some land, take a little hike around your yard; if you live in the city or suburbs, walk a couple of blocks a day, it’s really not as hard as you think. If you have a pet, take them for a walk daily or every other day.  Exercise helps build confidence and self-esteem, and has the added perk of toning muscles and losing fat.  A little known fact is that regular exercise helps with increasing the blood flow to your naughty bits and who doesn’t like healthy naughty bits?

Get or Give A Massage–a day at the spa, being pampered by someone else sound like a plan? Sure does, but not all of us have that luxury, so instead, we can give a massage to our partner or get one from our partner.  Aside from feeling so damn great, a massage helps to lessen stress levels and brings out intimate interaction with another person. Relaxing, rubbing, pressure, and some massage oils even, for good measure, can be a sexual turn on. Feeling froggy? Break out some candles even, make it more special. What it leads to after is all up to you! *wink*

Eat Healthier–most of us have had the fried variety of foods that fast food restaurants offer, but everyone knows that eating at those facilities is not the healthier choice. Eating healthy can lead to weight loss, and when we lose weight we always feel good about ourselves, and when we feel good about ourselves it can make us more active in the bedroom. A fun part about healthier eating is that some of the foods we eat can also boost sex drives such as: bananas, black raspberries, avocados, and believe it or not, lettuce.  They taste good, are healthy, and a boost in sex drives? Win-win!

Quit Smoking–this is a hard one, and yes I know it is. But what I didn’t know is that smoking can decrease the blood flow to our sex organs and it decreases energy levels. Smoking is bad, we all know it, but I’m not going to preach it to you, I just wanted to include it in my list.

Candles, Potpourri–break out the scented candles or even the potpourri if you want. People are often aroused by certain scents or smells. Find out what you and your partner like, and find those scents to add to your bedroom. If that doesn’t work, or you can’t find the right scents, try different colognes or perfumes. Use what works for you.

Relaxation–that word again, stress, is a libido killer for sure. Find ways to omit the stress from your life, I know it’s not the easiest thing to do, but give it a try. Read a book, listen to some music, spend some time alone and in the silence, relax. Clear your mind, and relax, there really is no other way to say it, simply RELAX! It can do wonders for your sex drive.

There you have it folks, my list on ways to increase your sex drive. I compiled these from the different resources online, and put them in one list for you, but rest assured if these don’t work there are many more out there. I hope that some of these have helped you, until next time!
