Maybe this is wishful thinking, but it seems like the lull of winter is finally lifting. That means you and your partner can climb out from under the cozy covers and start prepping for a springtime revival. If you’ve been making plans all winter long for spring and summer, it’s time to stop putting them off and start being the outgoing power couple you know you can be. Here are some great ways to enjoy each other’s company while you bask in the fresh wave of warmth.
Go To A Couples Spa
It isn’t quite springtime yet, but a great way to transition from the sheltered comfort of your bedroom to the real outside world is by visiting a spa together. Spas can benefit your health in many ways, and relaxation and rejuvenation are what spring is all about. Go get a couple’s massage and learn why 87% of individuals feel like massages help their health and wellness.
While you’re at the spa, you can both get a makeover. If your boyfriend is the macho type, tell him that the male grooming industry is worth $20.5 billion and that male beauty standards are changing. When you leave, you will both look and feel your best, ready to begin all of the bright and colorful activities of spring.
Hit The Trail
If you are the outdoorsy type of couple, grab a tent and take a hike! Make sure to proceed with caution, though, because spring is prime time for hypothermia. Pack warm clothes, an appropriate tent, and all the necessary gear. A well-prepared spring camping trip can be the infusion of nature and romance you need to reawaken from the long winter slumber.
If you aren’t the type of couple that’s keen on camping, hit the nearest beach. You’ll see birds returning, waves crashing, and sunlight hinting at summer to come. What you won’t see is other people. The beach during early spring is quite most of the times, and if you do see people, it’s likely another couple who had the same idea. If you want some real seclusion, take a road trip to one of these scenic and little-known beach locations.
Go Skinny Dipping
Whether it’s on the beach, in the woods, or out on a boat, skinny dipping in spring is invigorating, intimate, and a guaranteed smile. This is best done closer to summer to avoid the frigid waters of early spring.
If you are going to go skinny dipping, it might actually be a good idea to buy a boat or rent one for the day. You could also use the boat to go tubing, fishing, or bring a couple beers and lounge around together. Since there is so much fresh water in America, 95% of the boats you could buy or rent were made here. This means your private skinny dipping chill-out day in late spring probably won’t be too expensive.
Waking up from a winter-long blanket cocoon is a process. You can’t just jump out of bed one day and start sniffing flowers and catching butterflies (another great couple’s idea), you need to ease into it. First, reinvigorate yourself with a spa treatment and makeover. Next, go to the place outdoors with the most romantic significance to your relationship. Finally, get rowdy and ready for summer by doing something wild!
