A lot of men get so depressed whenever they are unable to last long in bed. That is because they instantly assume that the shorter duration of sexual intercourse could lead to an unhappy partner.
Well, I want to refute that right off the bat. In a study that was published more than a decade ago, it has been found that, on average, most people deem sex to be adequate at around the 7-13-minute mark. That means that if you reach that time, it should be okay for most people.
But, keep in mind that people are different. In fact, there are some that are okay with a quickie because of the time constraints and the pressure of having other people raining in on your parade.
Fortunately, you do not have to be depressed when you are experiencing any sexual dysfunction. Men who suffer from premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction can easily treat those problems in a number of different ways.
A lot of people say to me that taking male enhancement pills in conjunction with a proper diet can do wonders but your mileage may vary.
Today, I am going to talk about some simple habits that are known to boost one’s sexual performance.
- Break a Sweat
Men should pay close attention to their body weight. That is because being overweight or obese could have a negative impact on your sex drive. Let me explain.
Whenever you gain those extra pounds of fat, some of the fat can be stored in different areas of your body. If you are really that fat, some of it may build up around the area of your heart which can impede adequate blood flow to the other areas of your body.
Studies have also shown that people who carry a lot of fat in their bellies are known to have lower sex drive than their fitter counterparts.
Having said all of that, it is important that you improve your cardiovascular health. One way to do that would be to break a sweat.
I am not talking about going to the gym and getting committed 100% of the time, but what I am saying is that you should add more physical activities into your daily routine. Even a 15-minute brisk walking session per day should suffice.
- Drink a ‘Cuppa Joe’
The active compound that is found in your typical cup of coffee- caffeine- has been known to dilate the arteries, thus allowing for better blood circulation in your body.
Now, I am not advocating that you drink coffee just moments before sex, but what I am trying to say is that you drink coffee in strategic points in the day.
- Embrace Healthy Fats
There has been a lot of misconception about fats, in general, that people consider all kinds of fat to be bad for our health. That is actually not the case. There are fats that are healthy for your body. In fact, your body cannot function optimally without them.
Healthy fats are omega-3 fatty acids, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fats. These fats can help improve your overall health. Omega-3 fatty acids, in particular, are known to improve your heart’s functions.
- Eat More Fruits and Vegetables
As a man, your typical diet may consist of 70% meat, 20% carbs, and some fat on the side. Well, you may want to change things up a bit.
Fruits and vegetables should always be a part of your diet. In fact, eating these foods is known to improve your health overall. So when it comes to food portioning, fruits and vegetables should fill half of your plate.
- Learn to Part Ways with Stress
I understand that stress is always going to be a part of our lives, but managing stress is important if you are to think about bettering your sexual performance.
Chronic stress can lead to higher cortisol levels in the body and if your body is in that prolonged state, that can lead to a host of different health problems.
Engaging in meditation, for example, is one way to reduce stress.
