Keeping things steamy during winter

The long hours of darkness and cold weather of winter can bring about depression, which can have a negative impact on one's sex life. Those who feel that their libido is depleted during the snowy months can take a few steps to keep things hot and sexy, which in turn can help ward off glum feelings.

Many people complain of feeling "gross" or out of shape during winter. This is often because the opportunities to exercise that exist during the summer, such as long walks or bike rides, are not available to us once the seasons change. However, just because you can't get fit outside doesn't mean you should let your body fall into disrepair. Join a gym, and once you are feeling better about your physique, your sex drive will likely ramp up. If you want to really get things hot, go to the gym with your lover, and be sure to give each other lots of compliments about your improving appearance.

If the winter blues don't stem from body image, then you may need to take other measures to keep things uplifting in the bedroom. Eat healthy foods and try to be as active as possible. This may mean that you have to switch off the TV and clean your room or offer to help out a friend with dog-walking responsibilities to keep your blood flowing.

Since you'll likely be holed up at home more often, why not take the opportunity to explore some sexual activities that you have yet to practice with your partner. Many people enjoy  vibrators, and the sensation of products like the LifeStyles® Vibrating Ring will likely warm you up inside and out.
