I sometimes find with salaat I pray on time but I don’t have the yearning to pray right when salaat time starts. I sometimes try to stay in salaat as well. I have been using "fake it till you make it with salaat" as far as praying the actions but i dont find that spiritual connection. Any recommendations for improving salaat?

Continue praying on time. Pay more attention to the meanings. Try and read detailed tafseer of Salaat. Paid more attention to the meanings of the words of the supplication of wudu. Learn the meanings of the actions of salaat. Dress up and wear perfume for prayers.
