If you get home in the evening too tired for sex, chances are pretty good that your business executive lifestyle is robbing of you the energy you need.
You spend all day confusing all your attention and energy on the job and that depletes your resources. All you can think about at the end of the day is some way to wind down, usually with a drink, and sleep. You can have it all, a great career and a great sex life.
Here are our top six suggestions to make sure you go back to having a great mattress adventure on a regular basis.
1. Afternoon Delight
Sex is not an activity you must do just before dropping off to sleep. Get up a bit earlier in the morning before you have to leave for work. You’ve got energy then, use it.
Do not wait until you are too tired for sex. Come home from work, and jump in the shower together, then you just go with whatever happens from there.
Barry McCarthy, Ph.D., a Washington, D.C. sex therapist, “suggests changing your routine to accommodate meaningful sex and sleep. Try sex in the morning, earlier in the evening, after a nap, or while the kids are at dance class or soccer practice.
You plan business meetings. You used to plan dates. Plan for sex.
Short and quick weight lifting can be the boost you need, says Everyday Health.“Weight lifting causes the body to produce testosterone, which is the primary precursor for the male sex drive,” Pete McCall, an exercise physiologist, to the magazine.
He says lift enough weight to that you feel the burn by the 10th rep. Good exercise will not leave you too tired for sex.
Writer Jan Sheehan said, “some studies have linked short intense exercise, such as weight lifting, with increased testosterone levels.
That’s an exercise you can do on your lunch break every day, a few minutes in the morning and a few minutes in the evening. You can even do it while watching TV. Being too tired for sex will become a thing of the past.

4. Put Some Thought into It
You plan big business decisions. You plot our strategies and ways to get the work done in the office.
Remember when you were dating? You planned dates, what to eat and where to go. Just because you are in a long-term relationship does not mean planning gets tossed out the window.
Even the Wall Street Journal says thinking about your partner and then putting those plans into action makes sex better.
When you plan for something, your body starts building the reserves needed to carry out that plan.
You will also consciously start making adjustments to your schedule and your habits so that you can meet the demands needed for a great mattress adventure.
Think about that feeling you get when planning a big deal. The closer it gets, the more excited you become. Anticipation builds desire. If you approach sex the same way, it can blow your mind.
Planning ahead tells your body to be ready and you will not be too tired for sex.
Are you a businesswoman? If you’re a professional woman with children, you have another layer of responsibilities weighing you down that demands your attention from dropping off the kids at school to reading bedtime stories. Learn how to improve your sex life.
5. More Than a Late Night Activity
Kevin Thompson writes about relationships and sex. His article “When you’re too tired for sex” says, “A couple should take every opportunity to have as much sex as possible at a time other than the end of the day.” Why? Because late night sex happens when your energy levels are at the lowest ebb.
If you have sex during other times of the day, when your energy level may be at its peak or somewhere between the high and low levels, you share more than just sex.
He suggests taking a long lunch, coming home early, getting up earlier or set things up so you can come in late once in a while.
He says this might require a change in your mindset.
You already know that success in business means adapting and changing. Just apply that to your sex life.
6. Remember, You Are Partners
HealthLine says good communication leads to better sex. Think about this from a business perspective.
You have to let your partners and your staff know what you are doing. Pulling last minute surprises throws everything into disarray and can lead to disaster.
The article quotes Kate McCombs, a sex and relationships educator, who said, “When you avoid those vital conversations, you might avoid some awkwardness, but you’re also settling for suboptimal sex.”
By talking about issues, you will find even on those days you feel a bit worn down, you are still not too tired for sex.
