Three daily stresses and distractions that can cause a loss of libido (plus how to reset your sex drive)
When it comes to hot, amazing sex, the most important thing is, of course, a burning desire to do the deed. But as you get older, you'll notice that your sexual desire isn't what it used to be.

Whereas you used to feel up to it every second day, you may now only feel up to it once or twice a week - if that! The reason for this? Well, there are a number of daily stresses and distractions that can zap your sex drive...

Read on for three common causes of a loss of libido plus solutions for each that really work!

Three common causes of low sex drive

#1: You have zero energy
If you’re so run down that you fall asleep as soon as your head hits the pillow, you may just need to plan in advance when to have sex. Sure, this may be a bit unromantic, but a sex schedule will make sure you aren’t exhausted when you and your partner decide to be intimate. Plus, your partner doesn’t have to know – you can keep it low-key.
You also shouldn’t wait until after you’ve watched two hours of television to start foreplay. Get right to it as soon as you’ve finished dinner and the kids are in bed. Just light some candles, dim the lights, put on some soft music and go for it!

#2: You’re chronically stressed
Your to-do list seems never-ending – work, kids, book club – that sex barely makes it onto that list. The solution here is simple – slow down so you can tune into your sensual side with your partner.
Set aside 10 to 15 minutes every night to soak in a hot bath – this will help get you in the mood. The irony here? Stress is actually a natural stress reliever – the more you have it, the less stressed you’ll feel. Give it a try!
#3: You drink alcohol with dinner
While one glass of wine with dinner most nights is a sure-fire way to decrease your inhibitions and give your libido a boost, more than that can have the opposite effect and decrease lubrication, blood flow and swelling of the genital tissue, which is necessary for sexual pleasure.
One drink a night is fine, but make sure you stop there!
It’s time to take back your steamy sex life!
