Are you and your partner looking to upgrade your lifestyle? Are you feeling tired of being unhealthy and want to start making the most of the time that you have, together? If that’s the case, then this is the article for you. We’re going to take you through some fun and healthy activities for couples who want to upgrade their lifestyle!
1. Work out together
There are so many different couple’s exercises that you can do together and the best part is that you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your own home. Whether you aren’t quite ready to get to the gym, or you can’t afford two gym memberships at the moment, working out together can be cheap and cheerful. Exercise also produces endorphins which gives you a natural high, thus boosting your mood. When you work out together, you will also be functioning as a support unit for one another, pushing through boundaries and taking your physical health to greater heights.
2. Go camping
Not only is camping an awful lot of fun, but it will enable you to reconnect with nature which has a great number of mental health benefits. Start building up your camping equipment and look for the best camping spots in your area and then get out into the great outdoors!
Camping involves hiking, swimming in natural bodies of water, working together to erect your tent and build your campfire, cooking hearty meals together over a fire, and so much more! But, it’s not just the physical and mental health benefits that are important; it’s a great way to bring you closer. There’s no finer feeling than being laid out under the stars with your S.O, pondering the secrets of the universe and finding out more about each other.
Travel broadens the mind indeed, and what better a way to experience all of the beauty that the world has to offer than with your partner? Experience new cultures, taste new flavours, see new sights, and try new activities that you may never otherwise get the opportunity to do: such as snowboarding on the Alps or hiking up to see Machu Picchu.
4. Attend cookery classes
Doing couple’s cookery classes is a great way to hone your culinary skills whilst learning how to cook new and delicious dishes. Having the ability to cook different dishes means that you will be better positioned to sustain a more balanced diet with healthy and nutritional dishes, together.
5. Enjoy a picnic in the park
Get some healthy snacks packed in a basket (don’t forget the bottle of wine), pack a blanket, and head to your local park. Sit outside in the sunshine and enjoy a light lunch in the company of your favourite person. The simple fact of being outdoors is good for the soul, but the walking around in between is always great for getting the blood pumping.
6. Go skinny dipping in the ocean
Just make sure that: A. there’s nobody around who could be offended, or B. you’re on a nudist beach somewhere. Other than that, you are good to go! Stripping off your clothes and running into the ocean together is a fun and healthy activity that will get your heart racing! Again, you must be careful, pay attention to the tides, and only go swimming in areas that are designated as being safe.
7. Go for a run
Get your running shoes on and go out for a jog together. You don’t have to be taking part in marathons to be getting your daily cardiovascular exercise. Running is a great way of getting outside, breathing, and clearing the mind!
8. Get intimate
The healthiest activity of all? Having more sex! Couples who have regular sex tend to report to have happier and more fulfilling relationships. If your sex life has been more flat than usual lately, then check out the many sex toys for couples in Australia and see if you can spice things up in the bedroom. There are many health benefits to regular sexual activity, so consider it medicine. Oh, plus it’s fun.
9. Go rock climbing
Rock climbing is a great healthy activity that gives you a brilliant upper-body workout. There are many indoor rock-climbing centres that will kit you out with all of the relevant safety gear and guide you on how to use the climbing walls safely and responsibly. It’s a fun activity to share together and see who can reach the highest (for the more competitive couples).
10. Try some DIY
Whether you are digging out the refuse in your garden or clearing out the spare bedroom for a renovation project, doing some DIY projects together at home can be a fun way to get some exercise, while learning new skills and improving your home together!
