If you are tired and think your sex life could use some improvement then
According to a recent survey by the National Sleep Foundation, a full third of women say tiredness causes them to cut back on sex.
More than half of American women (60%) say they only get a good night’s sleep a few nights per week or less and 67% say they often experience a sleep problem. Additionally, 3% say that daytime sleepiness interferes with their daily activities, according to a new poll released today by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF).
Women’s lack of sleep affects almost every aspect of their time-pressed lives, leaving them late for work, stressed out, too tired for sex and little time for their friends.
And a clinical study at Harvard Medical School showed that just eight weeks of a simple at-home yoga practice significantly improved sleep quality for the toughest audience — chronic insomniacs. It’s a simple exercise to connect the dots — practice yoga, sleep better, have more sex and better orgasms.
Upavista Konasana (Wide Straddle Forward Bend)
How to do it: Sit on the floor with your legs wide. Leg muscles are activated and toes and kneecaps point straight up. Lean your torso forward as far as it goes comfortably. Hold for 5 to 10 deep breaths.
Sexual Benefits: Increases blood flow (and thus sensation) in the pelvis.
Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose, also known as Cobbler’s Pose)
How to do it: Sit with your knees bent and soles of the feet touching. Lightly hold your big toes and lean your torso forward over your legs (back is gently rounded). Hold for 5 to 10 deep breaths.
