7 Healthy Habits for a Great Sex Life Part 1

Rev Up Your Libido

Healthy habits and lifestyle changes can increase libido, improve your sex life, and possibly help address issues such as erectile dysfunction and female sexual dysfunction. Sexual arousal and function is dependent on a healthy cardiovascular system and good overall health, so both men and women can improve their sex lives by maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Healthy habits and lifestyle

Sex Life Enhancer No. 1: Quit Smoking 

The nicotine in tobacco is a potent vasoconstrictor. It narrows the blood vessels, which can lead to damage in the arteries and veins. The small blood vessels in the penis are especially susceptible to damage – thus smoking can have a negative effect on your sex life. But there is something you can do about it: Quitting smoking can improve your sex life and increase your libido.

Sex Life Enhancer No. 2: Exercise

Regular exercise can help both men and women improve their sex lives and increase libido. Routine exercise keeps the cardiovascular system healthy, important for libido and erections. Exercise can also increase levels of sex hormones as well as endorphins, help women feel better, and improve body image, according to Jennifer Berman, MD, a urologist and expert in female sexual medicine and director of The Berman Women’s Wellness Center in Beverly Hills, Calif.

Sex Life Enhancer No. 3: Reduce Stress 

Stress management techniques such as meditation and yoga can also help improve your sex life. “Stress is a silent killer — worse in some ways than heart disease or even cancer,” says Dr. Berman. “It’s self-induced, it ages your body, and is gradual.” Stress also raises cortisol and adrenaline levels, which can interfere with sex response hormones. “Healing hormones are released during meditation,” says Berman.

Sex Life Enhancer No. 4: Get More Sleep 

Lack of sleep has been linked to erectile dysfunction and female sexual response problems. As with stress reduction methods, beneficial hormones are released during sleep, says Berman. “If sleep is interrupted by apnea, stress, medication, and so on, that affects brain chemistry as well as mood.” Getting enough rest can help increase your libido and improve your sex life.
