Exercise is proven to be essential to a healthy lifestyle. Exercise makes you feel better about yourself, increasing your self esteem and decreasing depression, anxiety, and stress. Not surprisingly, it can also improve your romantic relationships. Getting fit alongside your partner can lead to improved quality time together, more fun in the relationship, a deeper bond, and better sex with your partner. Even if you are at different fitness levels and have different fitness goals, there are plenty of activities you can do together, and any amount of physical activity is beneficial. Here are some easy ways to incorporate exercise into your weekly routine with your partner (all of these ideas are meant for couples):
- Take a walk around the neighborhood
- Go to a local park and walk for a bit, then sit down and have a picnic
- Ride bikes
- Workout at the gym
- Take a yoga, spinning, Pilates, or aerobics class
- Go swimming or enjoy other outdoor activities
No matter which activity you choose, remember to relax and have fun!
