If you have been dating someone for a long time, your love life may feel routine, even verging on boring. This is hardly a way to live your life, so make a few small changes here and there that spice things up, change your mindset and generally improve your love life.
You can go out for a bike ride, lift weights or do any other exercise that makes you sweaty and makes your heart beat. You don't need to be extremely intense, but thirty minutes a day could be just what you need. If you do this, you may feel more energetic and generally happier. This mindset translates to your love life, thus improving it and making you happier.
You and your partner can go out on dates as if you just met each other a few weeks ago. This means setting a particular event, dressing up for it and actually going somewhere rather than just spending your evening hanging around the home. This helps rekindle some of the feelings from the beginning of the relationship, and makes your love life more exciting by drawing on those feelings and memories.
If you think it may be necessary, you can schedule an appointment with your doctor to talk about any side effects of medications being taken by either of you. Some blood pressure medicine, antidepressants and oral contraceptives can reduce your sex drive and/or reduce your general energy capacity. So if you feel like you're in a rut and don't have the energy you used to have, talk to a doctor to see if it is a chemical problem.
Flirt (innocently) with everyone. Having a laugh with, and generally impressing someone of the opposite sex, is not a crime; it can make you happy and also can make you feel good about yourself, whether you're a man or a woman. This good feeling can then be used in your love life, thus improving it by adding external energy to it.
