Stress. Something we all experience. I imagine that saying the word you can summon what triggers your stress-levels. Christmas time for many, is a catalyst. Be it estrangement or loss, increased workload, high expectations, financial pressures or just plain hangovers! Christmas is supposed to be a time to relax, celebrate and have a good time. It’s a time those who are in a relationship want to feel close to their partners, or equally single people to hook-up. But instead the tension and anxiety around this time of year impedes this. Stress can affect us in a variety of different ways including appetite, lack of sleep and of course our libido! Our sex-drive takes quite a hit.
