Who doesn’t love date night? It’s a chance to slip out of your stretchy pants, nosh on fine food, and create romantic memories. If you love going on dates but tired of the same ‘ol dinner and a movie, we feel you. Check out a few of the best unlikely dates for people in love. Adventure calls!
We watched how ToeSox ambassadors and super cute adventure couple Jason and Chelsey Magness celebrated the New Year and it inspired us to rethink the typical date. They woke up bright and early and successfully did 16 sports in ONE day! While that may not sound possible or even fun, it may just enhance the connection you feel toward your partner.
In fact, research proves that couples who workout together, stay together. An article by Psychology Today notes:
“Exercise induces the symptoms of physiological arousal—sweaty hands, a racing pulse, shortness of breath. These symptoms mirror, in many ways, the thrill of romantic attraction. Interestingly, people can easily mistake the two and misattribute physical arousal for romantic attraction. Use this phenomenon to your advantage by inviting your romantic interest to workout with you. The results? A likely boost to your attractiveness in his or her eyes.”
Take your partner by the hand and get sweaty with these 5 fun date ideas that will increase your chemistry:
Yoga - Well this is a no brainer… combine a detoxifying vinyasa flow with increased flexibility and sparks will fly!
Run - A partner run not only motivates the other and helps keep a consistent pace, but increased cardio will also put you in your happy place.
Nature walk - Explore nature on foot (or snowshoe) for a special moment of movement AND Vitamin D (which helps enhance your immune system).
Bike - Being on two wheels can get you further faster. Jump on your seat and ride to the farmer’s market to pick up your dinner fixings.
Celebrate - Jason and Chelsey end their day with the final sport of beer drinking. After physical activity leads to your physiological arousal, why not cheers over a glass and healthy dinner with eye contact (another proven way to stimulate the feeling of love).
