You don’t have to limit your lovemaking to bedtime. There are plenty of benefits physical and emotional to getting it on in the morning, so why not see some of them for yourself? Set your alarm a bit earlier than usual and get started!
It Sets the Tone for the Rest of Your Day
Everyone knows if you start your day well, then it will keep getting better as the day goes on. Starting your morning with a little extra closeness with your lover is a surefire way to wake up with some extra positivity and warm fuzzies. This physical act of love also releases Oxycontin which gives you that feeling of love and closeness. A little extra dose in the morning will stay with you for the rest of the day.
It Takes the Pressure Off at the End of the Day
Even if you wake up tired, those moments before you get out of bed are going to be your most well-rested ones of the day. When you’ve had a long day at work, sometimes the idea of doing anything other than falling into bed is unbearable. If you get your lovemaking out of the way in the morning, both you and your partner can hop into bed without any resentment.
A More Youthful Appearance
When you climax, your body releases a flood of endorphins and DHEA that have a positive effect on your skin. These endorphins have been shown to repair minor skin damage and give you a happy glow all day long.
Lower Risk of Heart Disease
The high levels of oxytocin in your body after a climax are incredibly good for your cardiovascular system. It also lowers blood pressure which also reduces the risk of heart disease and other heart problems.
Strong Immune System
Arousal stimulates your body to release immunoglobulin A (IgA). IgA gives your body its ability to fight off viral and bacterial infection, so why not begin your day with a boost in IgA during cold and flu season?
Energy for the Rest of the Day
Once you’ve had your romp in the hay, you’ll notice you’re quite energized if you hop out of bed right away. The adrenaline from a spontaneous round and the endorphins from the act will give you a natural energy boost to get you through the doldrums of your work day.
If you have a particularly stressful day ahead of you, lovemaking in the morning will reduce your jangled nerves. A study found that a roll in the hay produced stress-relieving effects for the next seven days.
A Morning Calorie Burn
Don’t have time to hit the gym? Lose your pants. A good session in bed can burn as many as 180 calories per half hour, so make sure you set your alarm a bit earlier to get your entire workout in.
It Gets You Up Earlier
Getting to spend some extra-close time with your partner is a surefire way to get you out of bed a bit earlier. Combine the extra time with your extra energy, and you might just become a morning person.
If you’ve woken up with a stiff neck or a headache, the rise in oxytocin can loosen your muscles and help relieve minor pain. You can also ask for a neck rub as foreplay.
Morning lovemaking is incredibly good for both your body and your mind. Even if it’s just a quick romp, that’s all you need to start your day right.
