Mindfulness could spice up your sex life and arouse your libido
Mindfulness could be the solution to your low sex drive.
All sexual experiences involve mental readiness and awareness, explains clinical psychologist Dr Eve.
Studies show that 43% of women experience sexual difficulties, Dr Eve says.
Canadian sex researcher and clinician Dr Lori Brotto has found that women can cultivate desire through mindfulness.
Dr Eve explains that mindfulness is about being fully present in the moment and being aware of your body.
It's a state of active attention on the present that can be achieved through mediation, yoga, breathwork and other techniques, she says.
Mindfulness means maintaining a live awareness of your thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surroundings.
