STOP smoking: cigarettes increase the risk of impotence by preventing healthy blood flow to the penis.
START eating a Mediterranean diet: vegetables, fruits, healthy fats such as nuts and olive oil, red wine and whole grains have been proven to improve sexual performance by lowering the risk of erectile dysfunction.
STOP with the vigorous thrusting: Certain cases of erectile dysfunction are due to penile injuries that happen during sex. Take it slow when thrusting and research which sex positions are risky for your penis. If an online search gets your heart rate up, schedule an appointment with your doctor who will be able to reassure and advise.
START getting your testosterone level checked: low testosterone often leads to a dip in libido, which in turn makes it complicated to get hard and stay hard. Your doctor will be able to help you find the best solution, if this happens to you.
STOP burning the candle at both ends: nocturnal erections last between three and five hours, providing the penis with oxygenated blood, which helps erectile tissue to stay elastic. The more shut-eye you get, the longer your erections will be.
START being more active: daily/regular exercise in some form not only helps optimize blood flow, a vital element of healthy erections, it will also make sure the body is producing enough nitric oxide, which plays a role in helping erections to last longer.
