You’re busy, tired, torn between taking care of your kids, doing well on your job, and being a good partner to your spouse. You may not even imagine how it would be possible to fit exercise into such a hectic schedule. However, it will be worth your while to try. The fact of the matter is that exercising can improve your sex life tremendously. You may be surprised to learn how effective it can be.
Here are 5 reasons why exercising is great for your sex life:
1. Exercising Reduces Stress
One the main sex-drive killers is stress. It can make any person feel like they just want no physical intimacy whatsoever. Well, exercising is one of the best natural cures for stress. No need to start taking pills. Exercise releases certain chemicals which are natural mood boosters and relaxants. You’ll be feeling better and calmer in no time.
2. Exercising Improves Sleep
As stress is one of the causes of insomnia, exercise also helps to improve the quality of your sleep. If you ever tried to seduce an exhausted partner then you probably know how hard it is and how likely it is that you’ll be rejected. If you or your partner is suffering from sleep problems, than exercise is highly recommended.
Note: I don’t recommend exercising right before bedtime. It takes some time for your body to cool down after a workout and it may be hard to fall asleep while it’s still warm. So, don’t train for two hours before bedtime.
3. Exercising Makes You Look Better
The notion that overweight people suffer more from a lack of sex in a marriage has not been proven by any study that I’ve read. However, it may happen and exercising is the perfect solution for this.
Exercise helps you burn off those extra pounds and lose inches. It helps to tone and firm your body and may even improve posture and the health of your skin. All this can do wonders for your self-confidence and connection to your own body as well as make you more attractive in the eyes of your spouse.
4. Exercising Together Gives You Quality Time
I believe that the key to a good marriage is to preserve your relationship as a couple by spending a lot of quality time together. Exercising together gives you that quality time and it also brings you two closer physically. It may not be as intimate as dancing, but working out together is still a physical activity which reminds the two of you of how your relationship also relies on the physical side. So, find a workout activity or a fitness class that you two can do together. It can work wonders.
5. Improves Your Sex Drive
Exercising also boosts your sex drive and that of your spouse. Exercising can enhance the arousal of both men and women, increase stamina in the bedroom, and may even prevent or treat certain sexual disorders. Naturally, it is not a complete cure for every physical problem, but it can certainly help.
Exercise has many other benefits, both physical and mental. I believe that it can be a great help to you in your quest to improve the level of intimacy in your marriage. So, go ahead and exercise.
