Ways To Have Better Sex And The Sleep Benefits

Reasons Quality Sleep is important Better Sex Through Sleep

The more we learn about sleep, the more we learn how closely it is tied to a wide variety of body functions. Our sex drive is no exception. When sleep levels go down, stress levels tend to rise. And as that happens, cortisol (the main hormone associated with stress), starts to dial down the hormones that control our sex drive.

How Better Sleep Habits can Lead to Better Sex

Our bodies are programmed to respond to stress by eliminating all unnecessary functions. However, with a little extra sleep, cortisol levels drop, allowing other hormone functions to resume at normal, or even better, levels than before.

Improves Mood

Having the right mood and energy are vital ingredients for better sex. Nobody likes it when they are stuck doing all the work or when both of you are lazy just going through the motions. Poor sleep quality has a direct correlation on lower libido, drowsiness and increased irritability, all things that don’t really put you in the mood for sex. In fact in a study conducted by The Better Sleep Council 6 out of 10 Americans would prefer a good nights sleep over sex, and some of the participants polled even admitted to nodding off during sex.

Tips to get more sleep

Not sure how to sneak in those few extra minutes of sleep? Make sure you’ve got a comfortable mattress, with the appropriate amount of support so you’re not fighting to sleep. Surprisingly only 7% of Americans expressed loving their mattress, so if it’s been more than 8 years you might want to think about investing in a new mattress.

Get a head start on your morning: ways to have better sex

Another way you might be able to sneak in a few extra minutes is by setting out your clothes the night before and having your lunch prepared and breakfast easily available  so you can sneak in an extra 20-30 minutes of sleep in the morning. With just an extra 2 hours of sleep a week (just under an extra half hour a night), you should notice a small but noticeable lift in your sex drive. And besides, if you and your partner make a habit of going to bed early, you never know what might happen.
