Episode 069: Your Libido Is More Than Your Sex Drive. It’s Your Zeal For Life (And Business)!
Our libidos take a hit at every bend in the road of life and the switchbacks intensify during midlife. As does our stress.
First of all, most of us are so overextended we don’t know if we’re coming or going. We say “yes” too often to keep in line with our role as the “put-er of all others first”. We plaster a smile on our face because God forbid if we don’t look like we’re happy all the dang time.
To add fuel to this dumpster fire, we are eating stuff passed off as food that is anything but…and washing it down with alcohol. “But it’s just wine.” And such a slippery slope. (Ask me how I know…)
The proverbial cherry on top? We rarely, if ever, get a moment to reflect. Let alone a moment to sit with our thoughts and feelings as a kind of check-in with our own selves. We’re essentially on autopilot, which is no way to live. Another way to phrase it is that we’re numb. We don’t feel the bad, nor the good. We’re in this middle zone of complacency. A middle zone that is becoming narrower and narrower as we approach menopause.
When our libido is waning, or non-existent, the void spills over into all we do. You can’t tell it to stick to personal time. It just doesn’t work that way.
I dive into holistic ways to breathe life back into your libido, or into it for the first time. Your libido is more than your sex drive. It’s your zeal for life and business!
