Stay Fit And Healthy With Your Partner

3 SIMPLE WAYS TO STAY FIT AND HEALTHY WITH YOUR PARTNER

Stay fit and healthy with your partner. This will improve your overall health and relieve stress. It will also help you sleep better, live longer, and have a more fun and healthy relationship . Here are some fun ways you and your partner can stay fit together.

Eat Healthier To Stay Fit 

Sit down with your partner and talk about the foods you like and dislike and the different ways you can make meals healthier. Plan meals in advance, start eating at home more than going out. You can do a week’s worth of meal planning together, shop for all the ingredients together and help each other stay on task and avoid impulse buying. When you are at home you can cook together. If either of you doesn’t know how to cook you can take cooking classes, watch food channels and search for recipes together. Cooking with fresh ingredients and creating healthy dishes can be a sensual and enjoyable experience for the two of you.GET MOVING 

Start where you are and don’t feel ashamed. As they say, if you start, you’re already miles ahead of someone still sitting on the couch. Walk the dog together or walk to the store and back. Start out small if you need to and increase your speed and your distance as well as the frequency over time. If you can walk briskly and if the two of you can handle it, start jogging. The main thing is to start. 

 

 

GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY

You and your partner can walk, bike, run, skate, play Frisbee or catch in the yard or at the park. Play basketball, tennis, golf or beach volleyball, the choices are many. Find something you both enjoy and get out and do it together. You’ll find it’s a whole lot of fun, and if you’re competitive, you and your partner can make wagers and add another dimension to the play. Most cities have recreational parks, YMCA, or a community centers that offer things like public swimming pools, sports leagues, and other activities to help you stay active.
