Are you avoiding sex in your marriage? Does your intimacy level leave much to be desired?
You’ve heard the saying “Honey, I have a headache”. I don’t hear it as often now but it could be replaced with modern day excuses, most likely the top one being “I’m tired” and “I just don’t feel well”.
I know because I used it in the past and it wasn’t an excuse! I would go go go all day and then when my head finally hit the pillow at night I just wanted to crash.
Are you Avoiding Sex in Your Marriage?
Giving your spouse the left overs of your day or nothing in some cases creates a disconnect and wears on a marriage.
When I began making healthier choices I felt better about myself, lost the pounds that wouldn’t let go, found energy I forgot I had, and felt sexier because I felt better.
When you feel better you’re more likely to want to be have sex with your partner and actually enjoy it!
What better way to burn calories than doing something that makes you feel good and adds to your relationship?
It’s normal to be exhausted every now and then from work, parenting, stress, finances, and other factors or even have the occasional headache but if it’s a consistent issue it’s time to STOP and think about what may be causing your decrease in energy.
This also applies to men.
With today’s Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) and fast-paced, stress-filled lifestyle, men are worried and stress more than ever and it’s affecting their overall health and their esteem with it.
Ways to Increase Sex in your Marriage!
Marriage is tough and takes a LOT of work but it’s worth it! Intimacy is so crucial to a thriving relationship as well as whole health.
Some ways to fight exhaustion and keep energy up are:
- Drink water! Drink up and reap the benefits. I like to add Lemon Vitality Essential Oil to my water. Pure Peppermint Essential Oil can also be used with a carrier oil on your temples or back of your neck for a quick pick me up.
- Get enough sleep. Now I know this may sound strange when we’re talking about staying up a bit later to, um, communicate, but start your bedtime routine a bit early so you can actually get to your bed at a decent hour once your night time activities are complete.

- Aim for 6 to 7 hours of sleep minimum. See my post about Tips for a sweet night of shut eye.
- Support your digestive system. Poor digestion slows your body in general and stresses out your organs and other parts. It distracts them from doing their job because they’re working overtime to digest all the gunk. Great health starts in the gut.
- Eat less processed food and more whole foods that your body recognizes and can digest easier.

- Reduce unnecessary stressors in your life. Some things are necessary or unavoidable but limit those you can. Look at your schedule and see where you’re overcommitted and choose to downsize.
- Eat! Make sure you eat enough whole, healthy foods to fuel your body. Skipping meals or eating processed food can leave your feeling hungry or heavy and like you need a nap! Look for upcoming health challenges on the blog soon!
