Throughout this pandemic and the lockdown we’ve had no choice but to be together pretty much 24/7. While it’s been lovely to be together as a family sometimes you just need alone time as a couple. Now that there is a new normal I just knew that I had to write a post on activities for couples post Covid-19. From booking an adults only weekend away to claiming your space at home I’m sure you’ll find some ideas that will work for you! Let’s get started!
Book a staycation
With all of the safety restrictions in place going abroad may not be the most sensible idea. That doesn’t mean that you have to give up the prospect of a holiday. A staycation here in the UK is a brilliant idea as there is so much to see and do. Booking a couples only hotel is a great way to reconnect without the distractions of everyday family life. The Voyage Privé website offers many options that are bound to get you ready to book a weekend away.
While the prospect of going away is an idealistic one, it might not be a feasible option. Why not put the kids to bed early and have a couple’s evening at home?
This can be as casual or formal as you’d like. You can sit on the sofa with a takeaway and watch the telly all cuddled up or you can dress up for the evening and have a romantic dinner. The only thing that matters is to make sure that you’re in the moment and focused on reconnecting.
Have a spa day
You may not be able to head off to a spa just yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pamper each other. An at-home spa day can be as relaxing and pampering as you want it to be. All you’ll need is to light some candles, some good face masks, ambiance music, and you’re good to go.
Spending time outdoors is necessary for both our physical and mental well-being. It’s important to be able to do this on our own, but it’s also a good idea to share this time with our partner. From having a picnic in the garden or just lying on a blanket and looking up at the stars. Enjoying the outdoors even in the most simple way is bound to connect us
Would you rather get active together? Then going on a hike or a walk is a great way to not only get some fresh air and exercise; but also to bond as a couple and talk through the anxieties brought on by this pandemic.
Take care of yourself
All of these tips and ideas may be quite obvious but the underlying factor is the need to bond and communicate with our partner. The time we spent in quarantine could have had a detrimental effect on both our own mental health as well as our relationship. Which is why it’s extremely crucial to try and reinforce our bonds with those closest to us.
While these ideas are beneficial to reconnect with our partner it’s not always as simple as that. There is said to be a rise in divorces post Covid-19. Which is why you need to be honest with yourself to determine whether or not you should call time on your relationship.
I hope that no matter what you take the time to take care of yourself. Remember to nurture your soul, and rekindle those relationships most important to you.
