Ways to improve your love life

1Commit to date night.

Set a date night once a month. It doesn't have to be expensive -- just some special time with your partner.

2Write him a love note.

Love notes and cards aren't just for Valentine's Day. Give him a "just because" love note. It can be sweet and romantic, or sexy and racy. Leave it taped on the bathroom mirror or on the refrigerator so he'll find it in the morning.

3Learn something new for the bedroom.

Is your sex life a little stale? Read a book on Kama Sutra or learn a special sexual technique to try out with your partner. If you are looking for a new position, check out SexInfo101.com's Sex Position Guide with over 100 3D animated sex positions.

4Take up a new hobby together.

Enroll in a cooking course, take a dancing class, learn how to ski -- whatever you do, do it together. Taking up a new hobby can get you excited about life and your partner.

5Make a scrapbook.

If you forget what even brought you together some days, it's time to make a scrapbook or photo album and reminisce about your time as a couple. Online albums are great, but nothing beats a good old-fashioned scrapbook. Work on the project together, using photos, ticket stubs, your wedding program and anything else you have that reminds you of special events in your life.

6Tell him what turns you on.

Instead of being bored in the bedroom, tell him what turns you on. If you want to be satisfied when it comes to sex, you can't be shy. Let him know what you like (and don't like), and encourage him to do the same.

7Get away for the weekend.

You don't need a holiday as an excuse for a weekend together. Rent a cabin in the mountains or a room at a spa resort. Even if you don't go out of town, the change of scenery at a hotel or bed-and-breakfast can give your relationship a romantic boost.

8Schedule sex.

Work, kids and other obligations can leave very little time for sex. So, put it on your calendar. On the first of the month, schedule sex appointments with your husband for the entire month. Do your best to keep every appointment.

9Stay fit & healthy.

What would a resolution list be without mentioning health and fitness? Instead of committing to losing X number of pounds, commit to staying fit and healthy. If you haven't had a checkup lately, schedule it today. Work out and shop for healthy foods together. Being fit and healthy will make you feel better about yourself -- and improve your sex life.

10Plan your future.

Instead of drifting through life, sit down with your partner and plan your future. What goals do you want to achieve? Whether you are planning to buy a house, purchase a new car or save for a dream vacation, make a budget and game plan, then stick to it together.
