Everything about your body is interconnected. Your leg bone is connected to your hip bone. Your hip bone is connected to, well… You get the idea. For good or ill, what happens to one part of your body has an effect on every other part of your body.
Your emotional states are equally connected. Good news makes you feel better regardless of what else is going on in your life. Bad news makes you feel worse regardless of how good everything else happens to be
We even get a lot of crossover between the physical and the mental. If you are depressed, it can manifest in physical pain. Also, were you aware that if you are happy, it could relieve a stubborn pain that medication doesn’t seem to be able to touch? Pretty crazy how the mind and body function.
If someone tells you that your pain is just in your head, they do not know what they are talking about. All pain is a product of the nervous system interpreting brain signals. It is all in your head and it is all physical. One of the best ways to find the right motivation for physical fitness is the knowledge that it will also improve your sex life. Here’s How:
If there is something you don’t like about your teeth, you are not going to smile as freely. Your smile will always be a little off because you will always be a little guarded. In your sex life, if you are not sure you are sexually healthy, it will affect how you relate to your partner.
Half of all sexually active people under 25 will get an STI. Go to a doctor that specializes in STI detection and treatment so that you can return to being the confident person you once were.
Many of the symptoms will not just affect your sex life, but every other aspect of your life. After all, it is all connected. If you have a persistent, embarrassing little itch, you are going to be hesitant to do anything in public. You will find yourself losing concentration at work and being distracted in other social situations.
Naturally, irritability soon follows. When the underlying issue is cleared up, you will be able to return to your normal work and social activities. Suddenly, you will feel a lot more like dating again. When you regain your confidence in one area, you become more confident in general.
Your diet directly affects the amount of energy you have. Some foods are known to drain energy. They are typically not good for you anyway. A good diet will also promote more energy rather than less. If you are finding that you are feeling sluggish at work shortly after the lunch break, that is a good indication that your choice for lunch wasn’t such a good one.
If your diet is causing you to be drained, it might also be adding a few unwanted pounds. At some point, those pounds become inches. And those inches become a limitation in movement. Sex is not a sedentary activity. It is kinetic and requires a bit of flexibility.
Of course, you and your partner are free to be as energetic or non-energetic as you like. However, there could be issues if your partner needs a bit more variety of motion. It is hard to have good sex when you feel bloated and gross. Choose foods that make you feel better and ready for, well, just about anything.
In the Mood
Depression and anxiety can kill a sex drive. When your mental and emotional states are out of whack, you are not in the mood for anything. You are not in the mood to play with your kids, or the cat, or a relaxing game on social media.
You will not feel like cooking, cleaning, or taking a walk. The last thing you will want is someone else’s sexual attention. If your sex life is suffering, the problem might not be the physical act. If you notice additional symptoms, it might be worth consulting with a professional.
Sex is an integral part of a healthy, human life. It should be a health consideration on the same level as disease, diet, and emotional wellness. Indeed, all of these things are inextricably linked.
