With all the fun plans around the holidays, finding time to hang out with just your spouse for a few minutes can be difficult. Even just preparing for time together takes time! Cooking the turkey, roasting the ham, mashing the potatoes, baking the pies—the to-do list gets pretty long. And then the list afterward usually includes another big check box: a plan to work off all of that food you just ate.
Why not burn the calories together?
Teaming up with your spouse can make anything more fun. Yep, even a workout.
Check out some of these fun and easy workout ideas. Find ways you can include your spouse in your winter workouts, even if the holidays have you pushed for time, cooped up inside, or needing something different to change up your routine.
I’m running short on time.
One of the excuses we often use (or maybe this is just me) is that we don’t have enough time in the day to fit in a workout. Twenty-four hours just isn’t enough time to do everything! And when you throw in the holiday fun, those hours get even more tight.
How about some fun things you can do together in about 10 to 15 minutes?
It’s way too cold outside.
This one is a pretty common concern during the winter months. Sometimes the temperature reaches such an extreme that being outside is more than just not enjoyable; it’s actually unhealthy.
How about some things you can do together indoors?
I need more ideas.
There are plenty of ways you can work out with your spouse that you’ve probably already thought of.
However, if you are still stuck, why not go for some of the classics?
Whatever you do, do it together. And then treat yourselves! You’ve both been working hard on building muscles in your bodies and building teamwork in your marriage. Take turns massaging each other’s sore muscles. You’ve earned it.
