How to Boost Your Sex Drive

Updated on December 7, 2010

The Top Ways to Increase Your Sex Drive

Do you have no sexual desire or a decreasing sexual desire? Its no secret that millions of people all over the world have been effected by a lowering of their libido.

While many doctors will try to tell us that we need drugs to cure this blight. Which isnt always a bad idea but lets explore a few other options that will not require a doctor.

Normally I like to try to figure things out for myself before I go looking for solutions from the so called professionals.

Check out How to Boost your sex drive Video. The old guy is quite a interesting fellow. He claims to have had over 1000 dates in the last year? That is like 3 a day isn't it Wow! He seems to know how to keep his sex drive going.

Eliminate Stress

Most of us are aware that stress plays a huge part in our over all health. Eliminating a few big and even a few little stresses in our life's can be a massive relief on our physical bodies. When our physical bodies are to stressed out to function properly this is where the trouble can begin.

People are always giving me suggestions on how to relieve my stress. I know how to get rid of my stress because I have taken the time to get to know myself. I now know what helps me relax and I usually know when I need to implement some relaxing time for me.

I worked in a very stressful environment for most of my career. I worked in surgery and had to help with many different traumatic situations. At the time my daughter was an infant and I would try not to bring my work home with me if you know what I mean.

You can learn little methods to sort of release the pressure before you get home. Find methods that relax you. Is it certain music, maybe the sound of water relaxes you? If you aren't aware of what and how you are able to relax then you have some work to do testing methods out. Not to worry have fun!

Look for Ways to Feel Good about Yourself

Have you ever met a person that no matter what you tell them they always come back with a negative comment? I feel that way sometimes. Someone will tell me something that they think is really positive about their day and I will shoot it down. I am sure we have all done it for what ever reason.

You might be saying what does this have to do with feeling good about yourself Well I think that some of us can be over critical if we are not feeling that great about our selfs. Yes I know its that old self esteem thing again.

I am saying try to find ways to feel good about yourself. I am not saying its easy to always look at yourself and find the good attributes but certainly all of us have our good points and then the points that we could use a bit improvement on.

Most of us if we are human have been through tragic situations in our lives. We have had to adapt, adjust and move on. I want to feel good about myself and I want it to be genuine. you know not fooling myself. This is a very important point in having a good sex drive.

This is a very important aspect of having a fulfilling life. Not just a good sex drive.

The Imagination the Key to Good Sex

Your Imagination plays an important role in your over health which in turn can fuel your interest in all sorts of things like sex. Do you remember day dreaming in class about one of your classmates looked like with no clothes on.

Come on I know there might have been someone somewhere along the line that sparked your imagination.

I remember girls at school were always good at imagining themselves being with certain boys. All of the guys were hoping that they were thinking about being with them in a sexual way I am sure. But probably most of the girls were just dreaming about us going off to work as they stayed home with the kids. Never the less they sure had vivid imaginations and dare I say that these girls had very healthy sex drives.

Dont Argue

Have you ever notice couples that are quibbling all the time. They are exhausting and exhausted. After they pick at each other all day they don't have the energy to have sex because they used it all up arguing about really impertinence irrelevant things.

I am not a nit picker but I know a few people that are and I don't really want to be around them I am pretty sure that no one does. So if this is you and you are having issues with your sex drive like plenty people are you might want to figure out a way to modify your behavior. If it isn't helping you than it could be time to learn to change.

You might even be arguing all the time and not realizing that arguing is taking up way more energy than you think it is. It is a big emotional drain.

Lets Get Physical

Lets get physical. You probably have heard it over and over again. Eat right get plenty of rest and drink lots of water. If your body isn't acting like you want it to you might want to change what you are putting into it. You could also change your physical activity. Oh yes I don't like the exercise word so lets just say you need to find an activity that you enjoy and will continue to do on a semi regular basis.

Find out what motivates you to take a little walk once in a while. Maybe it the guy or girl who works a few miles away at the store. seems like good enough motivation. A nice smile and a friendly hello. What ever the activity is that makes you get off the couch and do something. Its doesn't have to be entering a marathon.

I have been fortunate enough to have several activities that keep me moving around I will never call exercise and I will never force myself to do these activities. I enjoy them and when I feel like surfing, working in the garden or riding my bike I do just that. I know I could be in better shape but I don't want to take the fun out of my life by forcing myself to go to the gym twice a week.

Balance is the key to life if you have a low sex drive and you feel that you are stress free, eat correctly, get enough sleep, are active and happy with your life. You might want to look your life over again as I have many times surley you are missing something ;-)
