How to Recharge Your Sexual Energy

If you’ve noticed that remembering the last time you had sex (or the will for it) is only a bit easier than remembering your earliest childhood memories, you might need a sexual energy recharge. 

Sometimes, we feel frisky. We’re so up to the task, so to speak, that we could do the dirty deed all day, every day (in theory). However, at other times, days go by without us even sparing a thought to sex. That’s perfectly normal. Gone are our teenage years when sex was the essential thing in our lives (that we weren’t getting).

However, prolonged low libido in both men and women is a common but problematic occurrence. As we get older and busier, we lose the will and energy to continually arrange gaps in our schedules to have time for some intimacy. It’s simply easier to roll over and fall asleep.

Having a low sex drive isn’t uncommon, but it’s definitely something that you want to address. Even though around a third of women and a fifth of men say they don’t feel the need to have sex frequently, sex is an excellent way to release pent up energy. It also has quite a few health benefits. Therefore, low libido is not something to joke about.

That’s why today, we’re talking about recharging sexual energy and sexual healing.

Identify What Drains Your Sexual Energy

Sexual appetite fluctuates throughout our lives. It depends on our age, health, and daily lives. If your libido has been significantly lower for a while, you might want to look into recharging it. There are numerous ways to do it, as long as you accurately identify what’s draining it in the first place.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of conditions and circumstances that could lead to a low sex drive. As we get older, they pile on, which makes identifying the culprit that much more difficult. 

While some people think it’s all about sex hormones, that’s not always the case. Low libido can be caused by a myriad of physical and psychological factors.

Medical Conditions

Most commonly, low sex drive is a result of a medical issue. That’s especially true for people in poor physical health who aren’t leading an incredibly active life. 

  • Low Hormones

There’s no such thing as “normal” libido. What’s normal for you might not be for someone else. So, don’t compare yourself to others. However, if you’re noticing a change in libido compared to not that long ago, then there’s a chance you have low levels of sex hormones.

If your body isn’t producing enough testosterone, your sex drive will definitely drop. The body reduces testosterone production naturally as the years go by. By the time we’re 70, our bodies will drop the testosterone levels by 50%.

However, a sudden drop is worrisome and something you should definitely look into.

  • Erectile Dysfunction

Although a medical condition, ED affects men psychologically as well. Not being able to perform is a harrowing blow to a man’s self-esteem. Therefore, after a while, it’s no wonder that the desire to have sex drops like a rock.

  • Poor Physical Health

Sex is a strenuous activity that requires a lot of energy. So, if you don’t have a lot of it, to begin with, you won’t be able to rise to the occasion and perform. Leading a less-than-active lifestyle can diminish your sex drive. 

  • Various medical conditions

Low sex drive is also linked to poor cardiovascular health, obesity, diabetes, thyroid issues, and a lot of other medical conditions. Although low sex drive is just another one of the non-life-threatening side-effects, it’s still a huge issue to many people.

Psychological Factors

Of course, low libido can be a result of emotional problems. When we’re occupied with psychological issues, we don’t have the time or the energy to think about sex. 

Low sex drive can be a result of: 

  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep or sleep issues
  • Inner turmoil, anxiety, depression, etc.

How to Fix It?

Our low libidos are a direct result of an energy drain. Some conditions that cause low sexual energy are easy to fix, while others require a lot of work. The good news is that you can fix just about anything (one way or another). 

Modern science has a lot of solutions for low sex drive:

  • Medical treatments

If a medical issue is causing your low sex drive (such as heart disease or thyroid issues), it’s vital that you address and treat the cause the way your physician advises. As your main condition improves, so should your sex drive. However, if it doesn’t, make sure to ask your doctor about it, as they can recommend other treatments.

  • Testosterone replacement therapy

Testing your sex hormone levels is the number one step. If they are, indeed, low, your doctor will recommend TRT (testosterone replacement therapy) that can bring back the spark you lost.

  • ED therapy

Getting help and support can do wonders for men with ED, both with the physical and the psychological aspect of the condition.

  • Exercise

Exercising might seem like wasting the precious energy you have, but it can actually increase your energy reserves. After exercise, you’ll feel better and more energized, which means you’ll have the power (and prowess) for a round of bedroom boogie.

Alternative Healing

Aside from the traditional medical solutions, there are also alternative ones that might help you bring back that lost spark of sexual energy. 

  • Meditation — when it comes to achieving tranquility and relaxation, there’s no better way to go about it than meditation. It’s simple yet effective, and it can help with emotional and psychological problems. If you’re experiencing inner turmoil or are under a lot of stress that’s causing your libido to plummet, meditation can lend a helping hand. Afterward, you’ll feel more energized, and your sex drive will recover.
  • Reiki — energy healing is one of the most common solutions for low sexual energy. Reiki experts use their palms to manipulate and transfer universal life energy, which removes energy blocks.
  • Sexual healing with crystals — healing crystals are an easy way to get a bit of an energy boost. Specific crystals can enhance sexual energy, especially if you place them in a crystal grid around your bed. They’ll be a breath of fresh air in your sex life, and they’ll change the atmosphere.

A Few Parting Words

Here’s a final tip — low sex drive can also be caused by relationship issues. If you’ve noticed that you aren’t as interested in sex as you once were, talk to your partner about it. 

Sometimes the barrier we have in our head isn’t a result of a medical or psychological issue. Instead, it’s a side-effect of an issue we have with our partner. Having an honest and open conversation about it might prove to be the most helpful method to get your sexual energy levels back to where they were.
