It’s 2019, so it’s inevitable that you and your SO will have periods of time that look like this: you guys are together, but you aren’t talking to each other much because you’re both more focused on whatever is on the screen in front of your face (texts, a random list of hilarious memes, an episode of The Office for the 167th time, whatever). Maybe it’s time to disconnect from the rest of the world to reconnect with your boo. Luckily for you, these subscription box companies don’t even require you to leave the house!

No Energy for Sex? Here’s what to do

tired man laying in grass

Every once and awhile we get tired. Maybe there are too many things going on in life, maybe we have kids, school or other things that happen with life. But, when the sex drive dives there can be a lot of reasons for it. Below are a few solutions you may want to try.

Change Diet

If you are consuming too much sugar and caffeine then you should be aware that the impending crash will take your libido down with it.

Exercise

Exercise is the best way to get the blood moving and the energy back on track. Just a bit each day, you don’t have to be a gym junkie.

Sleep!

Make sure sleep is a priority and get to bed at a decent hour. No one says it has to be a complete eight but the majority of hours you are asleep should be uninterrupted.

Find a Babysitter

If you have kids, find a trustworthy person, maybe even another mom to watch the kids for a couple hours in the week. Take a bubble bath or go for a jog. Whatever floats your boat is what you need to do and you won’t feel like you want to get away from your partner when sex time begins.

Test the emotional waters

Take a week to thirty days and track your moods. If you are female, you may want to track it with your cycle too. It may be that as we get older, our hormones change and the sex drive is effected. For men, it may be a sign of low testosterone which you may want to check with a doctor.

Reduce your Schedule

It may just be time to take a candid look at your schedule and strike one thing , just one task that you can do without or delegate to someone else for a change. This doesn’t sound like much but, it certainly does quite a lot and makes a difference. Also, try to slow down the multitasking. Men tend to be better than women at this. Women, try to focus on one thing at a time a bit better so you are on slow and not fast burn.

Get the kids out of the bedroom

There comes a time in the lives of every parent that you kick the kids out of the bedroom and make certain this becomes your love nest again.

:

Delegate Chores

Make sure everyone has a chore list, even giving up one thing a day will do your body good.

Four Tips for Maintaining a Healthy Relationship

couple making heart with hands

A satisfying relationship can seem elusive at times, especially when the pressures of the daily grind enter the picture. In this modern world where the divorce rate is greater than 50 percent, it can be hard to imagine a relationship that survives and even thrives over the years. Balanced, stable, and committed relationships that get better over the years do exist. Here are some steps that can help make an ordinary relationship into an extraordinary one that lasts.

Communicate

Don’t skimp on the small talk. Couples who talk about their day and have discussions on everything from daily events to long terms plans typically have more satisfaction with their relationships. Even five to 10 minutes a day of open communication can increase feelings of connection and foster trust.

Manage Conflict Correctly

No matter how bad the problem or situation seems, remember that you and your partner are on the same team. Keep in mind you both want the same short-term results and to attain the same long-term goals. Regardless of what the argument is about, focusing on the commonalities you share can help put things in perspective. It is much easier to fight a battle or tackle a problem together than to go at it alone. Avoid personal attacks and if things get too heated, walk away for a cool down period.

Take Personal Time

A relationship can only be at its best if the persons involved are at their best. Take time to recharge by doing something you enjoy that is just for you. While you and your partner may have activities you enjoy together, it is also important for each partner to participate in activities that you do not share. Having some time apart can allow you to focus on things other than your relationship and pursuing your own interests encourages continued spiritual growth. A union where each partner continues to grow and develop over the years has the best chance of persisting through good and bad times while doing everything together often leads to a relationship that is stagnant and constricting.

Keep Your Own Council

Rushing to share the details of every conflict with family or friends will only lead to problems in the future. When people get into arguments, they often feel the need to be vindicated. They want their opinions validated so they can feel they made the right decisions and friends and family are often quick to comply. However, if all your confidants hear is negative stories, they may begin to ask why you are with your partner in the first place. Their opinions can cloud the process of working things out with your partner. The relationship is between you and your partner, not you, your partner, your family, your friends, and whoever else. When you have a problem, go straight to the source and work things out between the two of you. Later, when things have settled down, feel free to discuss with others whatever seems appropriate.

Include these four tips into a daily routine for a strong, long-lasting partnership. Communicating, managing conflict, maintaining personal interests, and refraining from broadcasting the bad times will go a long way towards increasing mutual satisfaction. With a little practice, even the best relationship can become even better.

5 Best Libido Enhancing Herbal Teas

cup of hot herbal tea

Herbs are the medicine of life.

Before synthetic, packaged, frozen and hormone and GMO-ridden foods, we looked to our food as the medicine of the gods. In fact, there was little evidence to show that there was any kind of sexual dysfunctions back in the day. Today, it seems like everyone is popping some kind of dangerous pill that messes with blood flow and pressure, this, is not the path we wish you to take.

Below we will list the five best libido enhancing herbal teas on the market. You can even use the fresh ingredients in a tea ball yourself for best results. Remember the first rule of thumb for herbal stuff is the less you have to process it, the better.

Cardamom

Cardamom

This kitchen spice is powerful! Cardamom contains a heavy amount of Zinc, which also helps to regulate your digestion.

Vanilla Bean

t’s a soothing and relaxing as well as libido energizing herb. If you are a woman, men love the scent on a woman the most. Get the tea and wear the essential oil.

Ginger

Good for both sexes but amazing for guys! Erections are sturdy and last longer too.

Ginseng

This one is a great one for both sexes but, be sure you know the contraindications and not overdo it. The body will use the nutrients from this root to boost libido in women and to build lasting erections in men.

Cinnamon and Mint

These two are great apart but these, like all herbal combinations are of course more powerful together than apart. Usually you can purchase them in a tea or use sprigs of the fresh stuff in a tea ball which is what we suggest. You could also buy the teas but make certain it is loose leaf tea that you place in a tea ball.
