first_imgSometimes you are ready to make changes in your life but your significant other sees it as your goal, not theirs.What if you are worried about their health?What words do you use to tell your significant other that they are overweight? How will your partner react if you tell him that you don’t want a piece of bloody Jamaica Ginger Cake while watching a Sunday movie? No, not even if it’s two for €3.If one partner starts exercising and eating better, the other partner also tends to lose weight.Studies have further shown that couples who exercise together are more likely to stick with an exercise programme.Exercise frequency has been attributed to enhanced feelings of attractiveness and increased energy levels—both of which can increase sexual desirability and performance. Here are some tips to gently help each other work out and stay together:1. Ask for their support. Tell them that it would make a huge difference if they could help you with your new challenge. Include them in meal ideas, plans. So, could we skip the takeaway this weekend and try a different meal idea.2. Don’t judge. If they want to have a dessert, don’t nag.3. Drink more water. Replace the sugary drink with water at mealtimes.4. Sign up for a fitness class/a 5k challenge/30-day challenge/arrange to meet a personal trainer as a couple/an afternoon kayaking/Suggest an evening walk. It doesn’t have to be a full-on power walk. The point is you are creating new habits. Aim for an evening walk two or three times a week. Remember, don’t compete. 5. Explore your surroundings. A day out at Sliabh Liag, Glenveagh National Park, visit Tory Island. New habits.6. Set a joint goal. Are you planning a holiday? A birthday, a wedding coming up soon? Reward each other. (not with food). Tickets for a gig, play.7. Be helpful. Be respectful. Focus on the benefits.8. Be aware of underlying problems: stress at work, financial worries, sleep difficulties 9. Stay positive. Remind your partner what you love about them; sense of humour, interesting, drive, intelligent, kind.10. You’re in it for the long haul and that’s why you’re skipping the Jamaican Ginger Cake .HEALTH: SWEAT TOGETHER AND STAY TOGETHER was last modified: May 17th, 2015 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:couplesworkoutlast_img read more
