3 Proven Ways to Boost Libido in Women

Do you miss the robust libido that you once enjoyed?

Trust me, you are not alone. It’s quite common for women to lose their appetite for sex in middle age and beyond. A lot of issues and factors can affect your libido. Some of such factors include fatigue, stress, money matters, relationship problems, medicines and their side effects etc.

However, it’s possible to rekindle your desire to have sex. Listed below are some tips and tricks to boost your libido naturally:

1. Try to Boost Testosterone

Though testosterone is essentially the male sex hormone, women also produce it in small quantities. A drop in testosterone levels in your body is likely to result in a sharp drop in your libido.

One of the best ways to increase your testosterone is with the help of herbs like tribulus terrestris. Role of tribulus terrestris in enhancing testosterone is well documented. As a matter of fact, it happens to be one of the few herbs that can actually boost testosterone.

Some other great ways of increasing testosterone in women include the following:

More protein in your diet – Adding more lean protein to your diet can help enhance testosterone production.
Try ginseng – Panax Ginseng or Korean Ginseng is great for enhancing testosterone in both women and men. Not just this, it can also help reduce stress. It’s important to keep in mind that stress is a libido killer and by managing stress, you can boost your sex drive.
Include good fats in your diet – Essential fats like Omega 3 fatty acids are important for the production of testosterone. Olives, salmon, sardines etc. are some great sources of such fats.
Say no to alcohol – Alcohol is proven to suppress testosterone production in your body. Try to avoid it when trying to increase your libido.

2. Boost Nitric Oxide Production

It’s common knowledge that lack of blood flow to the genitals is one of the prime causes of poor libido or sex drive in both women and men. Nitric oxide acts as a catalyst in enhancing blood flow. This is because it plays a vital role in dilating blood vessels so that more blood can flow into the genitals resulting in better and fuller arousal.

It’s possible to increase nitric oxide production in your body with the help of certain foods. L-arginine is an amino acid that enhances nitric oxide secretion quite effectively. Red meat, dairy, dairy products, poultry etc., are some excellent sources of l-arginine that you should consider including in your diet.

Watermelon is a great fruit that can help boost nitric oxide secretion in your body. Pomegranate is also excellent for enhancing nitric oxide production.

Some of the other foods for increasing nitric oxide include dark chocolate, walnuts, brown rice, spinach, oranges, beets, cranberries, garlic, black tea, cayenne pepper, honey, pistachios, salmon, onions, shrimps, peanut butter etc.

Include these in your daily diet and you would be able to notice a great difference in your libido within a few days.

3. Try Natural Libido Pills for Women

You can also consider trying libido pills that are specially formulated for women. They can be a blessing for you since they can do much more than just enhance libido.

Such pills can ensure faster and full body arousal, increase response to sexual stimulation, enhance natural lubrication and ward off vaginal dryness, alleviate other problems like hot flashes, mood swings etc.

Good quality libido pills are free of all kinds of harmful side effects and are recommended by doctors too.

The Change Within

Humans today inhabit a multidimensional, seamless, borderless world, where millions of individual trajectories and paths criss-cross inadvertently. And in turn give rise to a ripple effect of sorts. The complexity of these interactions has been further compounded by the integration of technology into the very fabric of living. The way we think, the way we eat, we breathe, and love are intertwined inextricably with the rest of our fellow beings and machines. We no longer are, and cannot be, alone!!

Our problems too, whether individual or those of the society as a whole, are linked in unimaginable ways and seem to have no clear beginnings or ends with no easy unidimensional solutions in sight. In a world like this hence, the need to transform the way we look at problems and the way we ferret out solutions, has become an urgent necessity and an inescapable fact.

What comes to the rescue perhaps is a new way of thinking which could be applicable to all spheres and domains of human existence. Design Thinking seems to hold novel answers to humungous world problems.

Design in itself is a very profound concept and is at the core of things living and non-living, deeply embedded in the conception of life itself. The forces of nature are continually engaged in the genesis of that perfect design which will transcend the vicissitudes and perpetuate itself through eons of generations.

Design Thinking is bringing the elements of design into every aspect of human life in ways that bring about a transformation in the manner we think about the problems that face us, be they in business, education, health, or even lifestyle. It is a “solution based” approach to problems rather than a “problem” based approach, where the human element of desirability, technological element of feasibility and the business element of viability interact and generate innovation at their intersection, in an iterative manner.

One of the reasons why the traditional analytical methods of solving problems do not produce the desired outcome is due to the linear way of finding a solution to the problem, with the problem at one end and the solution at the other.
The nature of today’s problems demand a radically different way of collaborating which bring together deep empathy for humans and their unique sets of needs, creative thinking and critical thinking, into solving problems; The method used is one of iteration, where each set of answers serve as the input for the next level of problem defining and solving. It also forces our minds to be open and to think out-of-the-box.

The paradigm shift is from looking at solutions through the traditional logical lens to looking at the same parameters through the lens of creativity. At all times the solutions are driven by defining user needs.

The end result is innovation, which is a new idea. Several such new ideas juxtaposed together produce patterns, which after analysis and synthesis, pave the way to build a new prototype of either a product, service or a process. This again needs to be tested. Once tested and put through several feedback loops, called iteration this can serve as a new way to address a problem more efficiently or produce a more effective device or a process.

The method allows to uncover latent needs, unmet and unarticulated needs, desires and behaviours of users; these are then applied to make new products, processes, devices and strategies resulting in a better and seamless user experience.

Some of the tools used by companies to evaluate different components of this design process is The Forrester Innovation Heat Index, a model used to evaluate multiple ideas that are generated from various sources which finally lead to innovation. Philips uses The Experience Flow which keeps in focus the practical and emotional needs of the end-users, to drive innovation.

The method of Design Thinking has played an important role in transforming organisations by engendering the “design mind-set” in employees who are trained in the principles and methodologies of applying design to address issues and solve them.

To be completely effective it is not enough for only a handful of employees to incorporate Design thinking culture. It needs to necessarily percolate from the top level management and is implemented at all levels.

Apple and Google are companies which have adopted the culture of design thinking to their advantage; in fact employees at Google get 20% of their time to think through problems at hand and design solutions.

Procter and Gamble has made a disposable mop called Swiffer applying techniques of design thinking, which obviates the need to clean the mop and which can be thrown after use. This strategy was born after assessing the existing products and issues that the users had with them.

Walmart has used this process of innovation to harness renewable sources of energy and overtake companies like Ikea and Apple.

The team at Philips has taken a few steps ahead and has embarked on linking together groups of innovations, generating ecosystems, for more wholesome and interconnected experiences like smart homes where kitchen gadgets, air conditioners, TV can communicate with each other and adjust to individual needs of temperature, weather, day and night times. Or in smart healthcare where critical radiological data can be shared by clinicians across the world which facilitates easy and faster diagnosis.

Within their organisation they have moved from mere Design Thinking to design doing, where it is not enough to have just multidisciplinary teams. They also adopt a technique called Rapid Co-creation where solutions are rapidly found and implemented in different business aspects. This has positively affected the daily functioning of teams.

Infosys, has embraced Design Thinking in a big way and has initiated a “Digital Culture” in organisations. It has conducted about 30 client workshops on Design Thinking to educate the employees and the customers about how beneficial it is to have a “customer- obsessed” approach, providing a clear competitive edge to Infosys. So far it has trained 36000 employees including 500 senior level executives and plans to rope in a total of 1, 70,000. Employees are taught how to look for, and at, customer issues and to use the principles of design to innovate and find the right solutions. Metlife, on the other hand, has created its own innovation lab.

IDEO is one of the pioneering design companies which has propagated Design Thinking for business solutions and works with organisations to bring about a shift in their work culture by imbibing its methodologies.

All said and done there are various factors that could impede application of this new mode, thereby negating innovation. These range from not having an open mind to change, out of fear, not allowing room for failure, to an inability to motivate and gear the entire workforce to work on the same platform. Most importantly it is impossible to keep pace with changes in user preferences which are quite volatile. Design thinking also cannot optimise or streamline any processes.
Like all things which hold great promise and all things which promise good things and deliver them as long as they adhere to their core principles, there is a real danger when creativity which drives design thinking, is applied automatically as a series of standardised steps. This then essentially rules out the possibility of design thinking.

To conclude, I quote a clich of Change is constant, and the elements that make up our world are in a constant state of flux. Rather than have humans becoming adept at adapting to technology it would be wiser to have technology adapt to humans. It is for us now to delve deep into and access that space where innovation is generated and from where solutions to a more productive and a peaceful world can emerge.
Here’s wishing joy, peace and health to all!

One in a Million – Or One of Millions?

Branding oneself can be the most significant strategy to break out of the pack of others who market similar products and services. Most salespeople agree that value, not price is the selling point. This being the case, the most important thing a company can do is to brand itself – convince the customer that the company’s value is higher than that of its competitors.

Brand building is done in a number of ways. Successful marketing strategies have changed drastically over the last half century. Marketing strategies are shifting to the utilization of social media. The old means of print media and even TV spots aren’t as effective as they once were. TV ad spots are at a record low and internet advertising spots are at a record high. Most companies who advertise on Hulu, an online television viewing website, create links back to their Facebook pages rather than traditional websites.

Developing the concept of the brand is just as important as developing the brand itself. Before starting to use social media marketing to build a brand, there are still many things that need to be done such as creating a mission statement, elevator pitch and short biography of the company. These are all important because they will be used to provide information on each of the social media sites used by the company.

The combination of utilizing traditional marketing strategies and shifting to a social media platform will help optimize the company’s exposure. Print media is still appropriate and encouraged in many industries. Just because some methods of marketing have become less effective than new strategies doesn’t mean that they are ineffective.

The more exposure, the better. There are several ways to build a brand once the basic concept has been developed. Using all of these techniques and creating a shot gun effect can be very successful. The saying, “don’t carry all of your eggs in one basket,” is very true in the case of a marketing strategy. While some techniques may be more effective than others there is still valid reason to use many different techniques. If the favored technique fails to attract customer attention there will always be other techniques that may do quite well. On the other hand, if all of the techniques fail, there may be a flaw in the fundamental concept of the brand.

The main point of any marketing strategy, no matter how in vogue it may be, is to create brand awareness. The way to make customers aware of a brand is to be where the potential customers are. Researching the targeted demographic is important because the majority of the advertising and customer relation building needs to be done there. Based on conjecture, if a heavy metal band is trying to market its brand, this would be done more successfully at heavy metal concerts, on MySpace and in music stores that sell heavy metal music. The contrast to this strategy would be an attempt to market at pop concerts, LinkedIn and church socials.

There are millions of websites and several prominent social networking websites that make reaching customers much easier than standing in the weather for hours upon end handing out flyers. Reaching customers through interacting with them on social media sites is not only an effective way of making contact but it is also effective to let them get know the company. Corporate blogs make companies personal. Sharing information about company events, trends in the industry and company news is a good way to connect with customers. The personal connection made possible by social networking sites is a very important aspect of social media marketing.

Customers identify with brands. When a customer considers a certain brand to be the foremost authority in a particular industry it is clear that the brand in question has built up value in the mind of the customer. The successful brand will eliminate the need for its potential customer to use Google or the phonebook to find what they are looking for. The successful brand will already be in the mind of the customer from previous contact. The purpose of building a brand is to stick out in the mind of the customer…to become one in a million instead of one of millions.
