I, for one, know how miserable it can be sometimes to start on a diet, a regimen and go on an entire workout session alone. You get easily unmotivated and you get stop afterwards. This due to the fact that we easily get unmotivated in the first place and no one is really keeping us on the path to health and fitness aside from ourselves. And we get easily tempted into doing… nothing at all. So we DO nothing instead of going through with what we planned in the first place. This is especially true for those who are on a New Year’s resolution path, but then give up not even a week later.
The best thing to do to BE on track? Do it with your partner. Why?
Quality time together
Since you two will be doing the workout together anyway, you know that you wold spending hours together outside of the time that you two will be at home being domestic. In a way it’s like a date but both of you are being progressive.
You both love each other and technically, you are working out and having this diet for not just yourselves but also for each other. You motivate each other either verbally or just because you’re there physically.
There is strength in numbers! Or in this case, you two will achieve at least a goal because you’re doing it together and it’s like no time has passed because you both are having fun about it. Personally, that is a success all on its own.
Putting it in another way, we speak about the guilt we feel when we neglect our health and our partner. This is why it is recommended that you don it together because not only are you paying attention to your own health, but also to each other.
It is scientifically proven that the relationship is stronger if you two are doing something together to achieve a common goal. Hence, a happier relationship. There is significantly more understanding because you two know what the goal is of the other and what the problems are.
For some people, working out is a stress-relieving activity. To others, it’s the cause of stress in the beginning. To lessen the stress, it is suggested that doing it and going through it with your partner is the next best action.
Maintained attraction to each other
We can’t deny that we humans are incredibly shallow. Relationships die because the physical attraction isn’t as strong anymore when you gain weight. So maintaining hat TOGETHER would ensure that you two at least still think the other is cute.
Growing younger together
You heard of the saying “grow old with you”. Now get ready for the “growing younger with you”. After all, you two are working on becoming healthier n slimmer together. Everyone knows that working out and dieting helps you look healthier and therefore younger.
