De-Stress With More Sex!

If you're human, I'm sure you're dealing with a little holiday stress right about now. If that's the case, it's time to release the tension. Light some candles, sip some chamomile tea and slip into a warm cozy bed with your special someone. Yes, when it comes to shaking your stress, baths are out and sex is in! Research shows that sharing some togetherness can help ease tension and anxiety.

The only obstacle is the ability to let yourself go since stress can be a real mood killer; making you feel tired, annoyed, nauseous, and cranky. I'm sure having sex is the furthest thing from your mind when you feel this way, but it can become a vicious cycle and not having sex can make a couple feel distant, which in turn causes even less sex. So the solution to a rough day at work or a dry spell in the bedroom is actually an outstanding night of hot sex. If you don't have time for a full-on nookie session, studies show that holding hands, cuddling, and kissing are also wonderful stress relievers.

So the next time you feel the pressure rising, especially during this stressful time of year, reach for your partner. Sex may not be the most important part of a relationship, but healthy and satisfying intimacy will not only strengthen your connection, but also help you deal with whatever life throws your way.
