1) Exercise Regular
Exercise is one of the most effective ways to boost your libido. Regular physical activity releases endorphins (natural painkillers), increases blood flow to the genitals, and improves mood.
Endorphins are chemicals that act on parts of the brain related to pleasure and well being. The release of endorphins from regular exercise is known to improve sexual function.
For example, a 2012 study found that women who exercised regularly had higher levels of testosterone than those who did not exercise at all.
Meditation has been shown to help people with depression and anxiety. It helps them relax and focus on their breathing, which allows them to experience greater mental clarity and concentration.
Ashtanga yoga is a form of yoga that focuses on strengthening the body and improving flexibility.
4) Tai Chi Chuan
Tai chi chuan, or “the art of moving,” is a Chinese martial art that uses slow, flowing movements to develop balance and coordination.
Pilates involves exercises designed to strengthen muscles and improve endurance. Joseph Pilates, the creator of the exercise system, called it “the beauty of motion.” The exercises are done using small, spring-loaded equipment including mats, straps, and cages.
Qigong is an ancient Chinese practice designed to promote health, well-being, and longevity. It involves slow movements and deep breathing. The movements are said to manipulate the flow of qi (pronounced “chi”) or life energy through the body.
A Chinese tradition, acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific parts of the body using needles. It is used to relieve pain and treat a wide range of conditions. The practice is considered to be alternative in the West, but it has been adopted into conventional medicine in the East.
8) Get More Sunshine
Spending some time in the sun produces vitamin D, which is essential for normal human functioning. Sunshine also makes people happy.
9) Get More Sleep
Many people don’t get enough sleep. As a result, they can experience fatigue and lack of energy. Sleep deprivation has been linked to depression and weight gain. It can also have an adverse effect on libido. In one study of 500 couples, women who slept less than five hours a night were twice as likely to experience sexual dysfunction as those who got more sleep.
