Which do you think is the best way for you to achieve an overall well-being?
For example, I practice yoga, Pilates, running and I have sex. Yes, sex! Not a dinner, a movie or a walk in the park. Just sex.
Can you say that you have an active sexual life or are you looking at your calendar and trying to figure out when to make that happen?
It’s important to make it a priority in our lives. By hacking your sex life, you will energize your body, mind and soul.
But let’s see the health benefits of sex!
- Less Stress
Life is stressful and stress can be harmful to our physical health. But don’t worry, because there is a solution for it: grab your partner and feel the tension slip away.
More sex, less stress!
Sex can improve mood and combat anxiety by reducing stress signals in the brain. That’s because endorphins and oxytocin are released during sex, and these feel-good hormones activate pleasure centers in the brain that create feelings of intimacy and relaxation and help stave off anxiety and depression.
So, when you feel anxiety or depression, all you have to do is to take your partner and have great sex.
- A Youthful Glow
Do you want to look younger? Forget green tea moisturizers, cucumber face masks and exfoliating gloves. Dr. David Weeks, a British consultant clinical psychologist and former head of old age psychology at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital found that older men and women with an active sex life appeared five to seven years younger than their actual age.
Get “busy” to get gorgeous!
Regular sex promotes the release of hormones, including testosterone and estrogen, which can keep the body looking young and vital.
- Improve Your Libido.
Are you looking for a more active sexual life? Of course, sex is the only solution!
The more often you have sex, the more likely you are to want to keep doing it.
Having sex and orgasms increases levels of the hormone oxytocin, the so-called love hormone, which helps us to bond and build trust.
Higher oxytocin has also been linked with a feeling of generosity. So if you’re feeling suddenly more generous towards your partner than usual, credit the love hormone.
- Counts As Exercise
Sex is a really great form of exercise.
Sex is a great way to get your blood pumping and burn calories, and every once in a while, for the sake of your relationship, you can skip the gym for a private session with your partner.
Your abs and the muscles in your back, butt, and thighs get a good workout as you thrust during sex.
Have sex in the morning!
Researchers from the University of Cincinnati found that morning sex is a natural stress-reliever and these effects can last for at least seven days.
More than that, who doesn’t want to begin the day with an orgasm?
I think that’s something worth setting your alarm for.
- Improved Immunity.
Good sexual health may mean better physical health.
People who have sex frequently (one or two times a week) have significantly higher levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA). Your IgA immune system is your body’s first line of defense.
Have more sex!
Nothing can ruin your sex life like a hacking cough or the stomach flu, and it appears the body knows this and works homeopathically to prevent it!
