Lifestyle Changes You and Your Partner Can Make to Look (and Feel) Fantastic!

One of the common preconceptions about being in a relationship is that one or both of you will start to let themselves go. This notion is based on the myth that people only look good while they are single in order to find a suitable partner, and then immediately stop trying to look good thereafter. While this may be the case in a few instances, what is more, likely is that a couple age together. As we age, our metabolisms slow, and this makes looking good harder and harder. Instead of giving up all hope, try to get back on track together. Not only can this be great for your relationship, but it can also help you spend more quality time together in an increasingly busy world.

Make Time for Meals 
One of the ways you can bring more romance into your life while adopting healthy habits is to simply take the time to make meals together. Turn on some music, put away your phones, and choose great, healthy recipes together and set about cooking as a team. Not only can this help you relax, but it can also help you feel connected. It’s the best way to capture the cosiness of your relationship while making time for nutrition.

Ways to Be a Couple and Get Exercise 
There are so many ways that you can get exercise into your routine together as a couple, without having to go to the gym or even worry too much about it. Go for walks together, go biking together, go dancing together – all of these great date ideas also double as excellent ways to increase the amount of exercise you get. The more you do, the better you can manage your weight, detox your bodies, and even increase your natural energy levels.

Find Ways to De-Stress 
Stress can cause a lot of damage, and unfortunately, with the busy lives we lead, from work to our commute, stress is all too familiar to many of us. That is why slowing down and de-stressing at home with your partner is important. To accomplish this, try to disconnect- switch off your phones for a while and enjoy your time in the moment. Even if it's just watching a movie or playing a board game, it enables you to focus on the here and now without distractions. You could take a hot bath together or give each other massages- perfect for relaxing muscle knots, reducing blood pressure and increasing feelings of wellbeing. 

Look Out For Each Other's Mental and Physical Health
In many ways, we can know our partner more than we know ourselves. When something is a little off with them, we might spot it even before they do. Maybe they're more tearful and emotional than usual, more lethargic or just don't seem like themselves? Encouraging them to speak to their doctor can help to resolve issues more quickly, whether it's for a physical health issue or finding a therapist to work through a mental health problem they're struggling with. You'll know yourself that it's easy to put things off or disregard them when it's yourself. But if your partner notices and is concerned about something, it can give you the push you need to seek help. So keep an eye out for each other, from ongoing health issues to regular appointments such as cancer screenings, dental appointments and eye tests. 

Address Persistent Signs of Aging Head-On Together 
Not every problem can be addressed by healthy living. Genetics and other environmental factors can cause a huge impact on how you look and feel. If your partner is experiencing hair loss, for example, and hair loss is common in his family, this could feel like an unavoidable sentence. If his hair is thinning, don’t let him despair. Instead, consider an FUE hair transplant. This non-invasive option does not leave scarring, making it the perfect way to refresh his hair and give him back his old confidence.

Being healthy is not easy, especially when it is all too simple to fall into unhealthy habits. Food that offers little in nutritional value also happens to taste great, being stationary can become your state of being, and so on. That is why you need to work together so that you can look your best and be your healthiest for years to come.
