Do you start your day with a cup of coffee? Do you make an effort to eat a variety of healthy foods look fruits and vegetables? Do you try to live an active lifestyle?
If so, you could be doing things that boost your sexual performance without even knowing it! If you’re not, you could unwittingly be cock-blocking yourself.
The behaviours you engage in on a daily basis have a direct impact on all aspects of your health, including your sexual health. Keep reading to learn about six simple daily behaviours that you can start adopting today to boost your sexual performance.
You may not realise it, but some of the very behaviours you exhibit every day could be the very behaviours contributing to your erectile dysfunction.
If you want to send your ED packing, try adding these six simple behaviours to your daily to-do list:
Incorporating just one of these six behaviours into your daily regimen could help boost your sexual performance, so imagine what doing all six could do! You don’t have to start doing them all at once – you may find it easier to stick to these habits if you incorporate them gradually.
In addition to adding some of the daily behaviours from the previous section to your daily regimen, you should also stop engaging in the following bad habits:
Wondering exactly how these bad habits contribute to low libido and other sexual dysfunctions?
Let’s start with alcohol.
A glass of wine with dinner can help put you in the mood for sex, but overindulging in alcohol – particularly on a regular basis – might depress your libido. Drinking to excess can dull your sexual sensitivity and may make it more difficult for you to maintain an erection or to reach orgasm. If you do drink, try to include some water at a ratio of 2-to-1 with alcoholic beverages.
Another bad habit that contributes to sexual dysfunction is lack of quality sleep. Most of your testosterone production happens when you’re sleeping, so if you don’t get enough sleep your body might not produce enough testosterone to support healthy erections. In fact, one study revealed that sleep deprivation causes testosterone levels to drop by as much as 70%.
Is your stress keeping you up at night? If so, it could be a factor contributing to your erectile dysfunction. Studies show that the most common causes for ED are psychological and that includes stress!
If you’re feeling stressed, you may be tempted to drown your sorrows in a sugary soft drink or a bowl of ice cream. What you may not realise is that too much sugar in your diet could increase your insulin production, causing you to lose muscle mass and store more fat around your abdomen. High levels of belly fat are correlated with low testosterone and increased estrogen levels – these factors combined may cause low libido and erectile dysfunction.
By now it should be clear to you that everything you do impacts your health in some way. The food you eat, the level of stress you experience, and the amount of sleep you get can all affect your health in positive or negative ways.
If you’re serious about improving your sexual performance, man up and start taking accountability for your own actions and your own daily habits!
