You have to exercise.
It’s very important to stay physically active if you want to boost your libido.

You’ll strengthen and improve your pelvic floor muscles and you’ll have more intense orgasms. Still, make sure you avoid them before having intercourse.
Eat “libido-boosting” foods.
Try to include foods that can boost your libido like beets and their juice. They are full of contain nitrates. Nitrates convert to nitric oxide as soon as they get in the body. Nitric oxide is the one that improves the blood flow and open the blood vessels. All of this improves the circulation in the penis. Some other foods are: chili peppers (they are full of capsaicin that improves our blood flow), cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower and broccoli (increase our levels of testosterone), mussels (they are full of omega-3 fatty acids that increase the nitric oxide), Brazil nuts (they increase the testosterone) and pomegranates (they act on the testosterone).
Take natural supplements.
You can also try to use numerous natural supplements like gingko biloba, L-arginine, acetyl L-carnitine, fenugreek, tribulus terrestris and L-citrulline.
Learn to relax.
Stress is among the greatest killers of the libido. Tension and anxiety can increase the production of the stress hormone called cortisol. As soon as it becomes increased, the levels of testosterone fall. Try to practice some techniques for stress management. Find some activity that will relieve you from stress that you and your partner can share like dancing, yoga, meditation, deep breathing and tai chi.
Limit your alcohol.
If you think that you look great when you drink alcohol, it probably is true, but only for a short period of time. After that, your libido falls and you can’t do anything about it. Try to limit your intake of alcohol. Try not to drink alcohol at all in order to increase your levels of testosterone.
Get more sleep.
It’s very important for your body to have a good night sleep. Sleeping adequately will help you produce testosterone. Make sure you sleep at least 7 hours every night. If you’re having problems with falling asleep, staying asleep etc., take a look at your environment and what might disturb you. Take all of the electronic devices out of your bedroom. Make sure your bedroom is dark and cool. Avoid exercising for 3 hours before you got to bed. Make sure you go to bed and get up at the same time.
