Hot Tips For Sexually Confident Wives #49

LOVE Your Way to Better Health!

Let’s get real. A dormant body is usually a sexually-disinterested body. But a body in motion is usually a body in the mood!Our bodies CRAVE movement, but sometimes we have to be intentional about getting it, especially with today’s sedentary lifestyles. If I sat at my desk and didn’t bother releasing any endorphins through the day with brisk exercise, well, I’d not only atrophy, I’d go NUTS! But as I stay physically active, I find I remain more mentally and sexually active as well!

Not only am I more sexually interested when I exercise, I sleep better (which keeps my libido from lagging), I look better (which gives me more confidence behind closed doors), and I feel better (which makes me a more fun-loving sex partner!).

What kind of exercise do I do? Whatever I feel like! Sometimes I walk or ride my bike… other times I attend a yoga or Tai Chi class at a local church or lift weights in their gym… and sometimes I get to enjoy my favorite activity – swimming!

How long do I do it? For as long as it’s fun. Once the “fun factor” has wore off, I quit. The minute exercise becomes “drudgery” it loses its luster! As long as it remains a novelty, I’ll keep coming back around to it like a well-crafted boomerang!

Wishing you strong healthy bodies, and strong healthy sex lives!
