“The woman, who shoulders responsibility as if it were a chiffon scarf, makes top decisions and argues her way through business conferences by day couldn’t possibly be cozy, comfy and sexy by night”.
Dear leading woman, you can have a successful/fulfilling career/company and a great sex life . You might think your career/company and your sex life are completely separate entities, but what happens at home and at work can often intersect in interesting ways. By spending more time with your partner, you’ll actually be improving your chances of getting that promotion or taking your business to the next level. Trust us when we say so.
A Healthy Sex Life: As enjoyable as sex is to most, it is not invincible from the daily challenges experienced in life. Most common challenge being your job. When working in a stressful situation, you tend to fixate on your work so much that you just don’t have room in your mind to even think about sex. You may think, ‘well if I’m not thinking about it, then it isn’t important’. Consider this, if you have a sexual partner and you aren’t ever in the mood for sex, he gradually loses his importance to you and in turn his self-esteem. This situation cannot be fixed by engaging in sex when you are not in the mood. In general, it would lead to bickering, then fights and lastly resentment on both parties.
HOW YOUR SEX LIFE AFFECTS YOUR JOB: Some of you might have already decided to throw yourself into your work, did you know that a poor sex life can affect your job negatively? Throwing yourself into work, may not give you that promotion that you want. Studies have shown that more sex leads to more productivity. Sex releases a chemical known as endorphin which is a natural pain relief, and we know headaches are a common occurrence in the work environment. It also releases a bunch of other helpful chemicals such as oxytocin which is the love/happiness hormone that can keep one in good spirits during work. Not to mention prolactin which is the chemical that takes your mind off sex leaving you focused. So imagine if you go into work, whether a job you love or one you are just doing to get by, and you are happy, focused and headache free. Of course this would naturally lead to more productivity at your job. So yes, sex helps!
