Exercise is proven to help men and women like their bodies more because it helps you focus on what your body can do, rather than just what it looks like. So that’s another reason to hit the gym or, even better, the yoga studio, as yoga’s been proven to boost body image and reduce stress levels, which are known to reduce desire.

Exercise also increases blood flow — everywhere! — which is absolutely vital to arousal, as well as having a powerful hormonal effect. If you want to feel sexier, grab your weights and do some bicep curls. Why? Not only will you love your arms more, but weight training boosts levels of testosterone, produced in the adrenal glands, a hormone that we know makes us feel sexier and improves blood flow to the areas that count.

Don’t worry, weight-lifting is not going to give you a burly build or a beard. The testosterone that’s released is at healthy, natural levels. Too tired to exercise and too tired for sex? Exercise, as long as you don’t overdo it can boost your energy levels. If your tiredness is chronic, get more sleep, or if sleep’s the only thing you’re getting plenty of in bed you need to take a look at your life style choices and start making some changes.
