Is being a parent keeping you from being physically intimate with your partner? Sex is a vital extension of your love so don’t let your bedroom time take a backseat. Sex is good for you in more ways than one. Make it a priority to rekindle passion in your relationship.
Life indeed changes when you become a parent. The transition from the ‘recently married and lovey-dovey’ phase to the ‘kids on board and I’m too tired’ phase can be overwhelming. It’s pretty natural to get so caught up by every day routine and feel overworked that bedroom time with your partner seems like ages ago. But while you’re busy being the loving mom to your family, you and your husband also need to rekindle your passion for one another. Your bond will strengthen and your relationship will grow.
Reasons to Have More Sex
1. Keeps the spark alive in your relationship
Sex releases the ‘cuddle hormone’ oxytocin, which makes you feel good and more eager to connect with your partner. The more often you feel this and want to get intimate with your hubby, the sooner will he keep all his attention focused on you.
2. Food for your health
Sex is the ultimate adult playground. Did you know that you could burn 80 calories with just half an hour of active sex? Mommies, gear up tonight for a slimmer waistline and a healthier you!
3. Boosts your immune system
Forget the apple, sex everyday keeps the doctor away! Making love produces immunoglobulin, a type of antibody that helps keep bacterial infections at bay.
4. Raises your self-esteem
When you feel good about yourself, you feel good about the entire world. Being a mom changes your lifestyle and your body in many different ways. There may come a time when you begin to question your looks, your self-worth and sometimes your identity too. But being loved and wanted by your husband can be very reassuring and a big turn on.
5. Leads to a stress-free existence
Your bedroom performance can do wonders to lift your spirits. Sex lowers the stress hormone – cortisol – in women and also drives down blood pressure. If you feel that life has taken an incredibly hectic turn, try lifting your mood and sleeping better at night with an active sex life.
6. Helps you stay young
Need more reasons for why to have sex regularly? Pay attention mommies: sex costs nothing yet is as good as expensive beauty products. It raises the testosterone and estrogen levels in your body so your skin looks soft and radiant. Even your hair benefits by becoming thicker and glossier.
With so many good reasons to have sex, go ahead and make love without further ado. No matter how busy your life is as a wife and a mom, you owe it to yourself and to your darling husband to get romantic and intimate. Just like you plan everything else in your life, prioritise intimacy and enjoy the benefits of a healthy sex life.
