Like a mental health day, only sexier. I’ll take my SEXUAL WELLNESS DAY now please, and thank you!
Learning how to be healthy means taking the time out to do just that, but where do we stand when it comes to sexual wellness?
Naturally, we are big fans of the concept because your mental health is greatly affected by your sexual health. Your sexual experiences greatly impact your emotional health, self-identity and overall wellbeing.
As if we didn’t give you enough encouragement to put your request in already (sooner rather than later), here are our top 5 reasons as to why it’s so important:
It helps you acknowledge that you deserve love and care, because you do. Taking a day off to pamper yourself sends an important message to you – YOU MATTER. When you consider looking at it as a psychological barometer of your own worthiness, it most certainly does.
CONNECTING WITH YOUR BODY
Sexual health is about connecting with your body and being more attuned to your body gives you a chance to explore and be present. Enter mindfulness.
When last did you take your senses out on a date? You have more than 5 and they need attention too. Explore your sense of smell, touch and taste. Giving each of your senses individual attention goes a long way in reducing your overall levels of stress.
IT’S GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
It keeps you healthy physically, emotionally and mentally. Yes, it’s that much of an important preventative measure for taking care of your physical health! Mentally and emotionally it gives you time and some much needed space to notice your feelings and where you’re at.
It’s fun and sexy – obvs! Let yourself play, life is supposed to be fun for adults too.
