Remember sex? If your libido could use a boost, or if you’d like to rediscover a deeper connection with your partner, or just have more fun in bed, then you’re in the right place to get past hormonal roadblocks and add some sizzle to your sex life.

The majority of women…60% admit to not being totally satisfied with their sex lives. Juggling work, family responsibilities and finances often doesn’t leave time to get enough sleep in bed, let alone time for recreational activities in bed. But feeling exhausted, cranky, and not wanting to have sex isn’t your genetic destiny.

Today, I want to share with you 4 tips to keep you feeling juicy and joyous. Think of these 4 ways to recharge as a menu….you can go for the full-course or more ala-carte, picking the areas that feel right for you at this stage of your life. Also, talk to your partner about the information. Just choose the tips that inspire both of you, and dedicate some time to this vital aspect of your relationship. The truth is, romance will not take care of itself—you have to give it some attention!

1.    Take disconnection and technology-free vacation

When surveyed, both men and women agreed that a weekend getaway would stimulate romance and more. Tune out the world for an at-home getaway that leads to “vacation sex.” Agree to no cell phones and no computers to create dedicated one-on-one time.

2.    Be adventurous

Do what you always do and you’ll get the same results. Agree to be open with your partner and suggest something you’ve always wanted to try and be open to suggestions yourself. And remember, there’s more to sex than just intercourse. Consider exploring each other’s bodies or using sexual aids like vibrators. And, try experimenting with new positions and even fantasies. Intimacy is about connecting with your partner on a deeper level to develop a stronger relationship. Focus on positive goals for the best results.

3.    Create a standing quality time date

It’s amazing what 10-15 minutes of devoted time with your partner will accomplish, especially if it’s a daily occurrence. Both of you will soon look forward to this reconnection time where it’s just the two of you, focused on each other.

And, make sure you declare it a no errands, no cleaning, no to-do list zone. You and your partner deserve your special time together. Take an evening stroll or commit to spending 15 mins of pillow talk before you turn the lights out.

4. Make your bedroom an oasis.

Think sensual and include a combination of mood lighting, scented candles, soft sheets, a quiet location and spritz of a few drops of essential oils on your pillowcase. Cinnamon, jasmine and ylang-ylang are considered to have aphrodisiac properties.

And, while you’re getting the bedroom ready, send your partner a few sexy texts. It’s fun, it’s a little naughty and both your (and your partner’s) libido will be super charged after just a few sexy messages back and forth.

Remember, progress, not perfection. Try what works for you out of this series and get ready for positive changes in your relationship and sex life.
