Men with low T can experience fatigue and commonly have mood swings.
It’s also one of the major causes of depression. Therefore, the level of testosterone should be associated with increased activity in emotion-processing regions when viewing negative as well as positive moods.
Here are some ways how men can enhance their mood to maintain a healthy mental & physical well-being.
30 minutes of physical activity on most days of the week can benefit beyond helping to raise testosterone. You’ll want a mix of cardio and weight-training exercises to get a full-body workout. Exercise helps libido and testosterone in numerous ways, improving heart health and aiding weight management.
Weight loss can help as well. Eventually, regular exercise can help you to meet your weight goals.
Get Some Sleep
Your body is a testosterone factory with its greatest production during a night of uninterrupted sleep. Sleeping may not be the initial reason you want to be in bed but enhancing the quality of your sleep can also enhance those other activities. Keep your sleeping space cool, dark, and inviting for both sex and sleep. Be creative and add little touches with music, candles, and textures that allow you to set a sexy mood but also support sound sleep.
Getting more sleep and exercise can help reduce stress, a factor Canfield said could contribute to lost libido and low T, although it is not well documented yet.
Eat a Mediterranean Diet
In line with weight loss, a diet that’s low in calories and fat, high in protein, and has a reduced amount of carbohydrates can improve testosterone and improve desire. The Mediterranean-style diet, which features plenty of fish, healthy fats (such as olive oil), whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and dairy, is one such diet. Changing your diet and watching portion sizes can also help with weight management.
Tackle Bad Habits
Those little indulgences you secretly know are bad for you — smoking cigarettes, drinking a little too much alcohol, or even a post-dinner coffee — can add up to lost desire. Quit smoking and avoid second-hand smoke; drink moderately, if at all; and give up caffeine after midday to improve your sex life — and your sleep. The prescription for reclaiming your sex life is a lot like the prescription for overall health. You’ll be looking and feeling better than ever, in bed and out, as you work on these five strategies for improving libido.
Take ‘Malay Ginseng’
Many might not know that Tongkat Ali’s adaptogen properties which have been discovered by scientists are able to elevate overall mood by reducing tension, depression, and anxiety by regulating cortisol and dopamine in your body.
Tongkat Ali performs well under extreme conditions when you are experiencing stressful or depressing situations that alter your emotions and actions.
