1) Self-regulate: Take care of and manage your own emotions. Out-of-control emotions are not sexy! And if you can't regulate your anxiety how will you tolerate discussing sexual desires or sexual issues?
2) Push your limits: Be willing to take risks, try novel things, push outside of your comfort zone. Remember the hot sex you had in the beginning of your relationship? Well, it wasn't because it was comfortable! It was exciting and uninhibited. Safety and comfort do not equal hot sex!
3) Take care of yourself: Practice overall wellness. Exercise. Sleep. Eat well. Set limits at work and with your electronic devices (put them down!). Get therapy to address any issues that may be interfering with your sex life or relationship.
On a final note, if you're having challenges in your sexual relationship, your relationship in general, or the passion has died don't wait to seek out the help of an experienced sex therapist. These experts can help you improve your relationship and sex life in a confidential environment.
