Suraya Sara is the founder of The Mindful Soul Academy, a safe online
space for Muslimahs to heal from their past pains. The Mindful Soul
Academy was formed because of Suraya’s own painful past of sexual
abuse and the realisation that there was very limited support for
Muslimahs who felt embarrassed, lost, guilty, angry, depressed and
anxious due to their unspoken abuse. Her goal is to empower women to
become the best versions of themselves so they can change their lives
and the lives of the next generation.
Women need tools to help themselves to be fixed and to be more
confidence to serve the world.
So what is this that I am hearing about women going without sex and wanting to lose weight? Sex is the best stress reliever and fat burning activity ever! So if you want to stress less and burn fat, you may want to rethink going without it. A ripple in your intimate relationship can kill you. Yes you need sex to stabilize your blood pressure, balance your sugar, detox your systems and to reframe your perspective. I know nice Muslim (or other religious) women don’t have these conversations openly.
Did you know that your morning workout is so much better when you have sex? Look at the benefits:
Metabolism is faster
Muscles more flexible
Releases the psoas
Remember last week when I talked about the inflammation being a result of your body staying survival mode for too long? A tightened psoas does the same except the inflammation spreads through more body systems and may manifest in digestive, lymphatic and respiratory issues.
This muscle group reflects your deepest negative emotion, inactivity or overactivity. It is tied to your breath and posture. Shallow breathing results in poor posture resulting in digestive or respiratory issues. When everything is in order emotionally, spiritually, mentally and physically, you will not have knee, lower back, shoulder or neck pain or headaches. You may have noticed that when you have a disagreement with a co-worker, loved one or sit too long you may feel completely ill. There is so much to share on this muscle group I may have to do a series. Just know that the regular release of the psoas can feel as good as sex even if you don’t have a partner.
So what’s the connection between sex and losing weight? That was just to get you to read about your psoas! The point here is to be aware of your body, posture and breath. If you feel sick and had a bad day at work, do some deep breathing.
