There are a lot of different ways to say that I love you. The longer you are married the more varied you have to be in finding creative ways to not only tell your spouse how you feel, but also show them. Finding unique ways to spend time together is a great way to tell your spouse how much you still love them. Of course, the long work week followed by long and tiring weekends that are filled with household chores and family tasks means that it’s harder and harder to find ways to spend time with each other to keep that flame alive in your marriage.
Finding something that’s practical and enjoyable that you can do together can take the edge off of date night and make the time that you spend together more beneficial.
Date Night: Do you even lift, hun?
Working out is a great way to spend time with your spouse. There are lots of reasons why working out might be a great way to spend a little bit of extra time with your significant other, from the health benefits for you personally to the added time for conversation and shared experiences that help a marriage to prosper.
Working out is a great passive experience. It is a great activity to do with your significant other because it provides you with time to share a space together without a lot of pressure on having to do something perfect. When you are working out you can focus on yourself, on beating your personal records, or on the class that you are taking, all while enjoying the time you are able to spend with your spouse. This gives you something that you can look forward to–an opportunity to have small talk and a little bit of conversation without having to put so much pressure on having a unique date that fits into your busy schedules.
What’s more, when you take the time to work out with your significant other you are finding a workout buddy right in your own household. This means it is actually more likely that you were going to keep up with your workout goals and when you’re keeping up with your exercise goals you are healthier, happier and therefore more likely to be open-minded and cooperative – the things that help to make a marriage happy.
You don’t need a fancy gym membership to make working out with your spouse part of your regular routine. Of course, getting started with a new workout routine can be tough—even if you have the perfect partner.
