Have you…*ahem*… lost that loving feeling in the bedroom? It happens to all women at some point and it’s normal to some extent. Low sex drive in women is fairly common, yet it can be overcome. A variety of internal and external factors can influence your libido, from your physiology to your sleep habits.
If you feel like you need an extra boost in this area, science never lets us down. Here are some natural ways to boost a woman’s sex drive after 40 and tap into your divine feminine energy:
1.You are what you eat.
That said, you might try switching up your diet. Fruits like figs, bananas, and avocados contain substances that can send feel-good messages to the brain that it’s “go time.” The same can be said for chocolate, which is known to prompt the brain to release chemicals that put you at ease. And when you’re cooking, it never hurts to add some extra basil or garlic, which are known to be natural ways to increase sex drive.
- Get tested.
No, we don’t mean STI’s, but that’s never a bad idea. Levels of hormones like testosterone can affect desire. Yes, women have this hormone, too. Ask your doctor for a full hormone panel to gauge levels and correct the course if needed.
- Practice positive self-talk and self-love.
How you feel about yourself and your perceived flaws can affect desire and performance. If you take care of yourself mentally and physically, you’re going to look and feel your best, and there’s nothing sexier than a vibrant woman ready to take on the world.
You can boost your self-esteem and your sex drive by putting the focus on your best qualities and focusing less on what you’d like to change. Taking time to meditate and engaging in stress-relieving activities, like exercise, can also make a difference. You can also increase energy and sex drive by taking naps when you can. Eating a balanced diet and staying hydrated will serve you well, too.
- Practice healthy boundary setting.
Feeling overextended at work? Zoom fatigue? It might be time to try to lighten your load. Being overly tired (and distracted) makes it difficult to get in the mood. No work calls after 6:30pm or on Sundays are just a couple of ideas to help you disconnect from work and connect with your lover...or quality practicing self love.
- Work on your relationship.
Arguments happen. When they do, it’s important to make up. After you’ve had a tiff, chances are you’re not in the mood to get intimate.
Communication is essential for staying connected — It’s important to talk out frustrations before resentment manifests.
- Consult an expert.
If you’ve tried most or all of these tips yet nothing seems to work, you might want to get a professional opinion. A doctor can help you identify underlying problems and get you on the road to optimizing your libido and improving your mental health.
