Hey readers changing the form of the blog. Instead of me trying to blog daily with sex tips, I'll be blogging weekly with the theme "Invest in your sexual health". Each week I'll share tips on how to invest in your overall sexual health.
Jan has been about Self Care/Self Pleasure. If you missed the virtual classes they are recorded and you can go back and listen. A major factor of investing in your sexual health is HOW you feel about yourself. How do you speak to yourself each day? Do you say affirmations? What does speaking life into yourself look like? Remember the tongue is a powerful muscle in our body.
Self-talk can enhance your performance and general well-being. For example, research shows self-talk can help athletes with performance. It may help them with endurance or to power through a set of heavy weights. The advantages of positively speaking life into self are:
greater life satisfaction
improved immune function
better cardiovascular health
better physical well-being
reduced risk for death
less stress and distress
Why would you speak negatively about yourself ? Doing this effects your mentality.
Speaking life into self means taking care of self
Do you take care of yourself? If so how often? What are you doing to make sure your mind, body, and spirit are healthy? Self care can be a practiced in many ways:
