6 reasons you should totally masturbate in the mornings

The mornings are often the busiest time of day for us all, but having a healthy routine in the a.m. can do wonders for the rest of your day. One thing you may have never thought about doing in the morning is masturbate. You exercise, meditate, and eat a well-rounded breakfast, and while these are all positive habits to cultivate, you might want to consider adding on one more task to do your morning to-do list. Believe it or not, there are some serious benefits to having an orgasm before you take off for work. Besides, can you think of a better way to kick off your day?

Here are six reasons you should masturbate in the morning.

1You’ll be less stressed the rest of the day

When you have an orgasm, the amount of the stress hormone cortisol decreases in your body. It’s traded in for happy chemicals such as dopamine and oxytocin, which leaves you feeling cheery and less moody than you did before. A short session of masturbating in the morning can put you on the right track to have a great day, regardless of what gets thrown at you.

2You’ll give yourself a natural glow

After you have sex, you might notice that your cheeks look naturally flushed. That’s because you’ve ignited a rush of blood to all parts of your body, including and especially your face. Basically, masturbating in the a.m. means you can skip the blush when you’re applying makeup before work.

3You’ll get your heart rate up

Sex is a form of exercise, if you really think about it. You get your heart rate up, get your blood pumping, and you burn calories (oh, and you tone your pelvic floor muscles). The same happens when you masturbate, so you might as well get your daily workout out of the way and have an orgasm at the same time. Two birds with one stone.

4You’ll deal with less physical pain

When you masturbate, you strengthen your Kegel muscles and send a rush of blood flow to your pelvic region. This naturally relieves you of pain you might be dealing with, such as menstrual cramps. That’s why many experts recommend masturbating on your period. Of course, it doesn’t just have to be a morning habit you do on your period. You can benefit from it at any time of the month.

5You’ll be more focused at work

Like any other physical activity, after you finish having sex or masturbating, you feel like it’s much easier to focus on the task at hand. That’s because the rush of dopamine to your brain actually gives you the tools you need to make better decisions and solve tough problems. You’ll be unstoppable at the office.

6You’ll get along with people better

Studies show that people with low levels of oxytocin and dopamine have a lot of trouble relating to the people around them. But every time you orgasm, your brain gets flushed with all those happy, feel-good chemicals, helping you feel less alone and more connected with others. If you masturbate in the morning, you set yourself up to have healthy social interactions, whether it’s with your co-workers, your friends, or your SO. You can’t really pass up on that.
