Do you miss those days when you couldn’t put your hands off each other? Think you’re not feeling the heat anymore? Ladies, it’s time to introspect because not having an active sex life is not a good sign! 

Let’s face it, there is no fun in life if your relationship lacks intimacy. It isn’t about pleasure. It is a proven fact that a good sex life keeps you happy and helps in stregthening your bond with your partner. All this happens because of the release or hormones like oxytocin and dopamine. 

There are many issues that could crop up in your sex life, ranging from fatigue to sexual dysfunction but it is extremely important to ask yourself why it is happening in the first place.

Well, it happens because of your sedentary lifestyle. That’s why ,for the sake of your libido, we want you to pledge to make a few lifestyle changes that can bring your sex life back on track.

Here are those five habits that can make or break your sex life:

1. Quit smoking
A, it is a major turn off as it causes bad breath and decolourisation of gums. B, which is more important is that it reduces sex drive. According to a study published in the journal Frontiers in Psychiatry, smoking in men can lead to erectile dysfunction, and in women, it can lower down their libido.

2. Start exercising
You don’t want to go out of breath in the middle of a full power sex session. For that, you need better stamina. This is the point at which exercising comes into the picture. Exercising also makes you more agile and flexible. So, you’ll be able to pull off some tough experimental moves as if you’re working out regularly.

A study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, suggests that exercises keep the sex life intact for a longer time and reduces the chances of sexual disorders.

Isn’t it great that now you have another reason to take up exercising?

3. Go to bed on time
We ain’t your momma telling you to go to bed and sleep. But if you don’t want your sex session to be a real quickie with no foreplay and excitement, then it is better that you move to your bedroom timely.

Have a nice conversation and take things forward. This way, sex can actually feel rewarding. Plus, you’ll be able to get a good night’s sleep!

4. Limit your caffeine intake
Who would have thought, right? But, it is true that coffee isn’t good for your sex life. Basically, caffeine is a vasoconstrictor which means it negatively impacts the blood flow in your body.

According to a study published in PLOS One, if your male partner is having too much caffeine, you should look for some other alternatives for him as it can lead to erectile dysfunction. In the study, it has also been noted that letting go of caffeine-rich drinks brings about an improvement in the disorder.

5. Eat healthy food and avoid too much sugar
For a healthy sex life, it is important to have a healthy vagina. To maintain a safe biome, it is important that you include a lot of fruits and vegetables in your diet. This will keep the environment of your vulva healthy and keep you away from vaginal infections.

Too much sugar is not good for your vagina and it can make your vagina smell bad. A study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology observes that too much sugar in your body can lead to recurring vaginal candidiasis which is a painful vaginal infection.

Yeah, it is this easy to rock your sex life! So, make these small changes and have a great time in bed.
