Health and Sex
by Diva Rebecca
For most people, enjoying a healthy and fulfilling sex life is a state of mind. If you are depressed, have low self esteem or are generally in poor physical condition, your sex life is not as good as it ought to be. I won't be ashamed to admit it, but people in their peak of physical form usually have a much more satisfying love life. And yes, it is partly because they love themselves as much as they (possibly) love their partner. These are the same beautiful people who we see checking themselves out every time they walk by the mirror gazing admirably on their rock hard bodies.
The majority of you are reading this and are about ready to gag. Obesity and poor health are at a staggering all time high in this country, even with the introduction of a new fad diet every five minutes. If you are like most people out there you hide your head in shame when presented with your own reflection in a mirror; you might even run away screaming. And even though you feel worse about yourself as time passes, you put off making any major changes in your diet and exercise regime for another day, another week, another New Year's Day. Beginning a new diet and work out regime is the hardest step to take. Not only are many people suffering from poor health, but many couples suffer from a lack of love in their love life. Can we put two and two together? It seems arcane but it should be one of the most obvious reasons for a dull sex life....poor health.
I am not trying to state the same old, same old. We all know that a good diet and a healthy amount of exercise will bring you energy and an increased libido. But that is only a fraction of what really contributes to an amazing sex life. Have you ever heard women say that one of the reasons they do not want to have sex anymore is because they are embarrassed by what they look like naked? For most people this is a real issue. Not many men and women can feel completely confident about themselves and their bodies at every moment in life. And when that time comes when you feel "not so attractive", the last thing you want to do is get all hot and heavy with your loved one. There are a few people who could care less and who are proud of their bodies no matter how much cottage cheese they are throwing around. Unfortunately most people are not that impressive. When you have a healthy sex life and when you are willing to try new things and be daring, it is because you are comfortable
. Comfort does not come quite as easy when you have a poor self image. But if you look good, you feel good and you are comfortable
getting buck naked and wild.
You don't need to look perfect to feel comfortable, but you should be able to stand naked in front of a mirror and not shudder. You should feel as if you are "into" the sex and not be worrying if you partner is looking at your cellulite bulges. That isn't any fun. And when a relationship goes on for many years and the sex life begins to die down because one partner wants it more than the other, it could very well be because of a lack of self esteem regarding self image. In most cases where it is the woman who is fending off her mate's advances, I would bet that this issue is the cause the majority of the time. However, for any men reading this, I would not make the decision to send this article to your lover as a gentle nudge for her to get to the gym. I might be sued for liable after she castrates you.
In any case, if there is something amiss in your sex life and you already know the lack of desire is on your part, it is only you who can make the choices to rectify the situation. Start a diet today, not tomorrow. Join a gym today, not tomorrow. Many people complain about their time constraints. Health and diet should be a priority so make the time. It is not as difficult as it seems. Many people just lack the self control and should perhaps take advantage of a health and diet program where encouragement is given. This is a choice and it is given freely up to you. Do you want a healthy and dynamic sex life again? If they answer is yes, then put down that donut and start feeling good about yourself again. And remember it doesn't stop there! You can also improve your self image by getting a new look, changing your grooming techniques and maybe even getting some new clothes.
