Here’s a fun way to ease holiday stress: Spend a little time between the sheets. It may not burn massive calories (researchers from University of Alabama-Birmingham found the average burn rate during intercourse is about 3.5 calories a minute), but having satisfying sex can help boost your immune system and lower your blood pressure so you can handle the holiday crush with ease. “Especially during the holidays, a little afternoon delight will go a long way to ease the stress and pave the way for more emotional closeness and richer communication,” says Wendy Strgar, founder/CEO of Good Clean Love. Invest in a great organic water-based lube like Good Clean Love that’s free of the petrochemicals like propylene glycol, which may increase the risk of yeast infections and STIs.
