If you’re in a special relationship, you always want to feel your best. You want to enjoy your time with that person and build a strong connection. There are many aspects to a successful romantic relationship, and being healthy and well is one of them.

Today we want to address some tips to help you feel healthy and full of life and energy so that you can give your all to that special someone in your life.

1. ENHANCE YOUR MOODS

No one wants to be around someone who’s in a bad mood. It’s not fun. If you are finding that you are having a difficult time feeling positive and happy, there are ways to boost your mood naturally.

  • Get Up and Move – Exercise causes your brain to release endorphins that make you feel good.
  • Vitamin D3 - Also called the sunshine vitamin, vitamin D3 can help boost your mood.
  • Magnesium - Magnesium is a mineral that supports hormone production and sleep, which in turn helps boost your moods. It also helps in the production of progesterone, which can help decrease mood swings related to your menstrual cycle
  • Inositol - Inositol helps calm brain chatter that can keep you from sleeping, which causes your moods to suffer. It also helps boost moods by calming you down.
  • 5-HTP 5-HTP is a metabolite from the amino acid L-Tyrosine and is very helpful to boost moods by increasing serotonin, your “feel good” brain neurotransmitter.

2. DE-STRESS

We all know what stress feels like. It’s unsettling, uncomfortable and you feel like you’re in a state of anxiety. It’s helpful to learn things you can do to relax.

  • Take an Epsom salt bath. The magnesium in the Epsom salts will help all your muscles relax.
  • Take a nap to refresh. There’s nothing better than waking up from a good nap feeling relaxed and with a clear mind.
  • Knock an item or two off of your to-do list. If you have a problem or issue you need to solve, take care of it, and that will be one less item on your to-do list hanging over your head. This will give you some much needed relief.
  • Take a stress-reducing supplement. Inositol, rhodiola and magnesium can help reduce stress. Lavender oil is an essential oil that can also decrease stress. It works similar to inositol by slowing down your brain waves. It also helps improve brain function.

3. IMPROVE YOUR OVERALL WELL-BEING

It’s important to take good care of yourself so that you are healthy. As simple as this advice sounds, it can go a long way to helping you feel good and live your life to the fulllest.

  • Exercise regularly. Once again, exercise is excellent for your overall health. Go for a brisk walk, play basketball with friends, do yoga, or go out dancing and have some fun!
  • Eat lots of organic vegetables and fruits. Good nutrition will give your body the right fuel it needs to function optimally.
  • Try the yeast-free eating program. Removing sugar and simple carbs from your diet, and focusing on organic meat, vegetables and complex carbs will do wonders for your health. You will feel better. This type of clean eating keeps your blood sugar stable and will definitely help boost your mood. Click here to learn more about yeating yeast-free. 
  • Drink lots of water. Drinking water throughout the day will help you stay hydrated. Being dehydrated can lead to low energy, headaches, feeling tired and even brain fog.

4. INCREASE YOUR ENERGY LEVEL

  • Eat for Energy. Eat meals full of vegetables, fruit, nuts and some lean protein. Avoid the muffins, bread, pasta and white carbs. These simple carbs convert quickly into sugar and will cause blood sugar levels to spike, and then crash, leaving you feeling tired.
  • Stay Hydrated Throughout the Day. Once again, dehydration causes fatigue. The less water there is in your system, the less oxygen there is circulating in your bloodstream. Dehydration causes a loss of fluid which in turn causes a decrease in your blood volume, making the heart pump harder to get nutrients to your vital organs.
  • Thyroid Function – Are you unusually tired all the time? Do you have trouble sleeping, unexplained weight gain, brain fog, constipation, and cold hands and feet? If so, then have your thyroid function checked. Hypothyroidism is a common cause of low energy, as well as low moods. Take this symptom checker quiz to find out if you could be suffering from the symptoms of hypothyroidism.
  • Take vitamins to boost energy: 

Energy Formula - Energy Formula improves overall energy production at a cellular level. Dr. Hotze designed Energy Formula not only to fulfill those essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients that you need, but to surpass the recommended daily amount so that you get far more nutrients and are able to function at your absolute best and enjoy the life you were designed to live.

5. SLEEP WELL

Get a good night’s sleep. Being exhausted and tired can dampen your libido, your moods and sense of well-being. You know how it feels to toss and turn all night, only to wake up exhausted and grumpy.

  • Turn off your TV, computer and phone.  The back light on screens can activate your brain and trigger daytime activity rather than helping the brain relax.
  • Keep the room cool at night. Optimal sleep temperature is 65 degrees. 
  • Keep your room dark at night. Any light will stop production of sleep hormones and could cause you to wake up. Wear a sleep mask if that helps.
  • Drink warm chamomile tea. Chamomile helps promote the GABA neurotransmitter, which is calming and helps slow brain waves. 
  • Magnesium. Magnesium helps relax you so you can sleep.

6. IMPROVE LIBIDO

Intimacy with your spouse is a very important part of a relationship. Certain foods can help set a romantic mood, such as strawberries, oysters, and chocolate. Make sure you have healthy, optimal hormone levels. A decline in both women’s hormones and men’s hormones can negatively affect libido. 

Here are some natural supplements that can help improve libido:

Maca Root
Maca root can be used to help enhance libido in both women and men. Maca is a root grown in the Andes and has been used for many years to help both men and women regulate hormone production. (1) It enhances fertility, libido and sexual function, especially in men.

Neo40

NEO40 has been proven to support nitric oxide production in the body, which is critical to a healthy cardiovascular system. Nitric oxide is produced naturally by your body. It is synthesized from arginine and oxygen and acts as a vasodilator and mediator of cell communication. Nitric oxide promotes the dilation of blood vessels, and controls blood flow to the tissues.

L-Arginine

L-Arginine is an essential amino acid that enhances sexual function in men. It improves blood flow. Its effects include reduction in the risk of vascular and heart diseases and reduction in erectile dysfunction. 

Now, go out there and have a great Valentine’s day. Be sure to tell your special person how much you appreciate and love them.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
