The Importance of Healthy Self-esteem and Confidence

Healthy self-esteem can improve all facets of your life, from your personal health to your success at work to the satisfaction you get from your relationships. So it should be no surprise that people with good self-esteem also have healthy, satisfying sex lives. It's not just that people with healthy self-esteems are more likely to be comfortable asking for what they'd like (and they are more likely to do so), but researchers have found that they are also more sensitive to their partners needs. Open communication combined with a desire to please both oneself and one's partner? Win-win.

Want to boost your self esteem? Police your mind. Shut down any negative thoughts you have about yourself, and focus on the things that are great about you. Your sex life will thank you.
