Sleep deprivation is a sex drive killer and is perhaps one of the easiest ways to regain and boost your libido.
Sleep deprived men will have a 20 – 80% decrease in libido which is a very similar effect that can be seen with men who are highly stressed. Sleep deprivation can also cause and worsen a number of serious health problems including stroke, heart disease, cholesterol and diabetes not to mention that it can cause a serious decline in your overall brain health, alertness and mental sharpness. Individuals who suffer from insomnia have a 92% chance of developing another very serious health problem that is either cause or aggravated by a lack of sleep. Insomnia is also strongly linked with depression as sufferers of either illness being diagnosed with the other in more than 80% of cases.
In general, 7-8 hours of sleep a night is required for you to be able to perform at your best both mentally and physically as well as ensure your libido remains healthy. In addition if you've been injured or have recently had an operation or procedure done – you require additional sleep to recover – possibly about 2-3 hours extra a day in addition to requiring more nutrition and hydration that normal.
