Too Tired and Stressed to Connect?

It seems like low libido has been a comment complaint among friends and clients. Today’s video addresses the common causes of a low sex drive. It is influenced by a variety of factors, such as hormones, stress levels, emotional state, physical health, and relationship dynamics and varies over time and from person to person.

The big issue with those I spoke with was low energy levels. All had recent bouts with increased job stress that left them feeling drained and depleted.

Getting to the root of the stress problem can be as simple as learning to conserve energy so you have some gas in your tank at the end of the day. HeartMath tools are my favorite energy conservation tool. You can schedule a complementary call to talk about what the tools can do you here.

In addition to energy conservation techniques, you can support your libido through stimulating your libido points. To locate the libido points, slide straight up from the inner corner of the eye to the groove in the center of the forehead. Fingers should be an inch, inch and a half apart, and lay right in that little ridge. Check out the video for the exact location. The libido points are important, because they control the thalamus, which acts as a relay station and has roles in sensation, arousal, and emotional processing.

Putting pressure on the points, or reflexing them, stimulates the complex neural pathways that link organs and body systems, and support the body to function optimally. Hold the points for 30 seconds to two minutes.
