Health Tips for Couples Series - Post 8

There are many ways to get moving everyday that do not require you to hit the gym or schedule in a big time commitment.

Some examples are to:

- Bike instead of drive

- Schedule in post-dinner walks

- Dance around when doing chores

- Take on more active hobbies (hiking, sports, etc.)

- Always take the stairs

- Park farther away in parking lots

How do get your movement in everyday?

While it’s important to get moving, it is just as necessary to get adequate rest. Modern society has glorified busy and has taught us we must be “go-go-go” to succeed. However, without rest, our bodies and brains do not function properly and hinders us from being able to reach our goals.

On the bright side, it is not particularly difficult to schedule in some relaxation time with your loved one. It’s just about making it a priority!

Resting may mean sleeping in, relaxing on the couch, taking a warm bath, getting a massage, or practicing meditation. Whatever rest is for you and your partner, pencil it in and relax with all the benefits!
