I know, I know, getting sweaty at the gym doesn't sound very sexy, and we've all been told again and again that exercise is good for your sex life. Sometimes though, it's just so hard to get to the gym, aren't I right? The thing is, you don't need to go to the gym to get the benefits of more physical activity. Instead, why don't you go for a nice long walk in the park where the flowers have just begun to bloom? Take up gardening and tending to the plants that are adding to the greenery of the season. Bike to work, the store, or even just around the block. All of these are great ways to add a little more physical activity into your day without much effort, and they allow you to enjoy the warm weather.
Need more incentive? Exercise can make you feel more energetic, release endorphins, make you look more attractive, and can even increase your libido. Plus, as an added bonus of the warm weather and longer days, you and your partner can add a romantic walk to the things you do together as a couple. (A long walk on the beach, anyone?)
Out with the old, In with the new!
The warmer weather also means more yard sales, garage sales, and thrift stores. The benefits of these types of sales are two-fold: first, they're a great way to find items cheaper than you could in the store. This will give you a chance to save up on those items you really want... but more on that in a bit.
Secondly, you can be on the selling end. Yard sales or dropping items off at consignment shops are a great way to get rid of some of the items cluttering up your space. Sell that old tea cup collection that you never use; the one that has been gathering dust in a box somewhere! This is also a great way to earn some extra cash.
Now, of course, you've successfully managed to save (or even earn) some dough. What to do with it? Obviously, there are a number of sexy and fun things you could put it towards: new lingerie, a fun toy, a couples massage, etc. Another idea you might consider is booking a cruise, which you can get great deals on in April, according to Lifehacker. Imagine even just a weekend cruise away from kids, work, and stress, where everything you need is included in a package deal -- now that could really be good for some "alone time."
After months of bundling up in chunky sweaters and heavy jackets (at least, if you live in a part of the world lucky enough to have multiple seasons), it's easy to feel less sexy than usual. Although it can mean plenty of nights snuggling -- or more! -- under the covers for warmth, it can lead to feeling a bit frumpy, as well. Take advantage of the warmer weather to bust out some fun new clothes to wear!
I don't mean just to surprise your partner with a fancy new outfit; while that can be fun for the both of you, take some time to dress for yourself, too. If skirts and floral patterns make you feel more feminine, wear them! Whether you're still searching or have already found someone, wearing clothes that make you feel your best will give you confidence and improve all of the romantic endeavors in your life. Showing a little skin after all those cold winter months can be just the thing to give you the boost to renew your sex life.
The important thing to consider here, is what you like. Find something that makes you feel fun, bold, feminine, sexy, or confident. You don't need to go out and buy a new dress, although that's certainly fun if you want to; wear your favorite blouse or skirt if that's what makes you happy. It's all about making you feel better, because when you feel good, it shines through in how you look and act.
So, this Spring, take advantage of the warm weather and go out to have some fun. Whether it's getting in an extra walk each week, decluttering, getting new things, or just having a bit of fun with your wardrobe, Spring is the perfect time to try new things. Shake off the winter blues by enjoying the great weather to come -- after all, we all need a little sunshine in our life!
