Learn to deal with stress and notice how your sex life improves:
Associated feelings are often accompanied by stress. Emotions such as anger, resentment, jealousy and anger are common and these affect the way you behave when you are around others. When you feel upset or sad with colleagues, friends, family or partner, it can affect the way you relax elsewhere.
Stress may seep from one area of your life to another area of your life as negative emotions and pressures mount and become harder to contain. There may be a desire not to burden those closest to you, or feelings of shame for being in this situation. Often sharing your stress can help you feel better and more supported.
There may be resentment that you do everything, anger that you are taken for granted, unappreciated, that others should offer to help and do more but do not, jealousy that others get all the recognition and praise while you do all the work. Feeling stressed makes these scenarios more painful and harder to tolerate. Negative emotions can eat away at you and are not conducive to a good sex life.
Hypnotherapy can help you relax and let go of negative feelings and emotions and feel better able to deal with them. As you learn to deal with stress better, you will be more confident, assertive and able to relax, enjoy your relationships and then notice how your sex life improves.
Setting boundaries is an important way to learn to deal with stress. Become aware of how much of your power you give away to others. Do you allow people to constantly interrupt your life with their demands, problems, problems? It’s no wonder you’re too emotionally drained for sex. You may even notice that when they’re not talking to you directly, their voices still resonate in your head. Setting boundaries, being assertive but not aggressive, can help to even out the balance in demanding relationships and allow other people to become aware that you too have a life that you are determined to enjoy.
Work is an area that takes up the mind of many people and causes stress. Do you feel that you are taking on too much, perhaps out of a desire to prove that you are good, competent, capable? Better time management can help with this, as busy people often start multiple tasks at once in an effort to get through their overflowing pile of excellent work.
If you are asked to take on work that is urgent, try delegating other tasks, explain to management what else you are doing, prioritize your list of open jobs and try to give yourself some leeway, maybe put the need extra time out . Sometimes there is no leeway with urgent deadlines and long working hours. But because stress is a constant way of life, it eventually damages your health, depleting your energy, good mood and quality of life in various ways.
Learn to manage stress and eat healthier, take regular breaks, drink more water and control your caffeine and alcohol intake, exercise and commit to having fun interests, avoid going too long without sleep and burning the candle at both ends . These commitments to yourself improve how you feel about yourself, supporting you to feel calmer, less tired, fitter and healthier. All these actions increase your desire to be more inclined to enjoy a healthy sex life.
Libido is part of sexual functioning.
Your mind is also an important factor. Clearing your mind of worries and fears, feeling less tired and exhausted, more relaxed and happier in yourself, all contribute to managing stress. As you do this, you will definitely notice how your sex life improves.
