Are you noticing less desire to be intimate around the holidays?
There’s many likely reasons with one of the biggest ones being stress!
Problems with sexual desire are actually common and normal, especially if you’re under a lot of stress or overly exhausted; and stress symptoms may be affecting your health, even if you don’t realize it.
Some Common Effects of Stress can Include:
Lower Sex Drive
Anger and Irritability
Lack of Motivation
During the holiday season, with all the family togetherness and hustle-and-bustle of things going on around you, it can make the transition from Mom or Dad to lover pretty challenging. But, it’s healthy practice for your relationship to intentionally carve out time and space for sexual intimacy with your loved one.
Especially since studies have shown that sex can be extremely beneficial to our health.
Being intimate is shown to activate neurotransmitters that can beneficially impact our brains and several other organs in our bodies. Who knew “feeling good” could actually feel better?
The Benefits of Sex can Include:
Lower blood pressure
Better immune system
Better heart health, possibly lowering the risk for heart disease
Decreased depression and anxiety
Immediate, natural pain relief
Increased intimacy and closeness to your partner
Overall reduction in Stress
The holiday season tends to be all about doing - Make this, Order that, Attend School Plays, Holiday events, etc… and this year you are being challenged to TAKE TIME to reconnect with your own body and your partners. It’s time to relax and enjoy the reason for the season!
