With 24-hour connectivity to phones and work, people are more stressed than ever before.
And, stress oftentimes shuts down your ability to have healthy relationships. It creates conflict with your partner and can make individuals crave isolation. When stressed, everything in your body tightens, your blood pressure rises, and you feel overwhelmed and drained, which makes intimacy a challenge.
Psychotherapist Mary Jo Rapini reminds couples that they have control over stress and their sex life. She offers tips on how to remove stress from the bedroom, re-establish intimacy, and improve communication inside and outside the bedroom.
Listen as Mary Jo joins Dr. Holly Lucille in this encore episode from 04/30/19 to discuss how to keep stress from work out of your relationship and the bedroom.
