A while back, I had read post about a married lady who shared that staying active as a couple helps boost your overall morale. Since then, Josh and I have been busy finding fun ways to get exercise & quality time together. Here’s a few ideas!
We were lucky enough to have one bike already when my family donated another one. We’ve enjoyed biking local trails, parks and even around our neighborhood. You can find great deals on bikes during the holiday sales or even at yard sales. Who knows, someone you know may be willing to donate to a healthier marriage cause, too!
I am NOT an athletic person by any stretch of the imagination. But, what I can say is that we have enjoyed playing a couple of sports together like bowling, basketball and racquetball. Even if you aren’t good at it, give it a try! You can also make the time more interesting by turning the sports into an actual game (the first personal to miss has to run a lap or two scores in a row gets an extra point, etc.)
Taking Local Lessons
Learning something new together could lead to exercise and fun. Try signing up for ballroom dance classes or rowing classes. You could even take surf lessons or try horseback riding together.
The important thing is that you learn to enjoy activities, exercise and make memories together. In what ways do you stay active with your spouse?
