You steer clear of the office gossip, tackle your to-do list with ease, and even clock in a quick stroll around the office whenever your mind gets stuck—but yet, your 9-to-5 is still less than inspiring.

But it turns out that the one thing you should do to boost your at-work mood can be done while you’re still at home—have more sex.

Those who were getting lucky at home reported higher levels of productivity and overall happiness in their positions (no pun intended).

A new study, published in the Journal of Management, followed the work and sex habits of 159 married people over the course of two weeks and found that those with a higher roll-in-the-hay total had more positive moods the following day. But that’s not all—by completing two daily surveys on their moods, office performance, and job satisfaction, those who were getting lucky at home reported higher levels of productivity and overall happiness in their positions (no pun intended) and companies as a whole.

Just like exercise can be linked to positive mood boosts, a little extra hanky panky pre- or post-work can release dopamine and oxytocin, get your heart rate up, and even get your skin glowing. And the best part? The researchers found equal effects in both men and women.

“This is a reminder that sex has social, emotional, and physiological benefits, and it’s important to make it a priority,” study co-author Keith Leavitt, an associate professor at OSU’s College of Business, said in a statement. “Just make time for it.” And considering that a recent study found that Americans as a whole are having less sex, sounds like we have some work cut out for us.

If you’re in need of some more inspiration, find out 5 ways that working out regularly will majorly rev up your sex life. And then learn how to have mind-blowing sex using Kundalini yoga techniques.
