When we think of “Date Night” we probably think of… well, night, and we likely imagine a decadent dinner out with our significant other, or an evening at the movie theatre, including a large popcorn and a soda. Now, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy both of those things. (Not the soda. That stuff is REALLY not good for you.) But dating can also involve activities that not only allow us to spend time with our loved ones, but are also good for our overall well-being.
First of all, we can agree that Date Night doesn’t have to take place at night. Right? It can happen at any time of day. My husband and I enjoy working out together. To make sure that, that workout gets done, we take an early (as in 6 a.m.) class. Shout out to Studio IPF: Inner Pursuit Fitness! Here’s a picture after our circuit workout this morning. If we weren’t fully awake when we arrived, we certainly were at the end of class!
- go dancing
- take a cooking class or cook dinner at home
- go for a walk or a bike ride
- get a couples massage or give each other a massage
- play a board game
I’m sure that you can come up with some great ideas of your own. I’d love to hear them!
