Anniversaries are a time of celebration. Commemorating all that you’ve been through in the past year, and all the ones before is a big deal. Instead of the traditional dinner and a movie, why not try something a little different this year? Consider these four activities that can rejuvenate both you and your spouse, making you feel younger and more vibrant than before.
1. Schedule a Couples Massage
Exchanging massages with your partner sounds like a sexy bit of fun. But it’s not as relaxing when you know your turn to give one is coming. And how do you decide who goes first? Save yourselves the arguments and hire a couple of experts. Let the pros work out all your kinks and knots while you and your spouse chat quietly and fully relax. Just because you and your spouse won’t be in physical contact with each other doesn’t mean you won’t still be connecting and enjoying one another’s company.
2. Have a Spa Day
Head to a medical spa and enjoy treatments such as peels, facials, and IV treatments. The soothing spa atmosphere invites relaxation and gives you plenty of time for quiet connection as you chat between and during treatments. Make a full day of it and walk out feeling more youthful and vibrant than when you went in. It may even help you to feel like your relationship has been refreshed and rejuvenated as well.
3. Do Something Adventurous You’ve Never Done Before
Nothing makes you feel younger or more alive than an adrenaline rush. Why not sign yourself and your spouse up for an adventure you’ve never been on before? Rock climbing, skydiving, bungee jumping, and ziplining are all fun options that are easy to find. The extreme feeling from these activities makes for a good metaphor for what it’s like to fall in love. The exhilaration will remind you of how much love and passion you share between the two of you. And who knows? By the time your anniversary is over, you might have a new hobby together.
4. Go on a Meditation or Yoga Retreat
Meditation and yoga are ideal activities for improving both mental and physical flexibility and connection. A single class is fun, but why not go all out for your anniversary? Find a day-long or weekend retreat around your anniversary. If you are interested in international travel, you can find some longer retreats that will also provide you with an exciting adventure.
Enjoy the soothing sanctuary of these quiet, relaxing activities. As you become more connected to yourself, you’ll also become more connected to your partner. What better time for that than your anniversary?
An anniversary should be a celebration of everything you and your spouse have accomplished together. But it should also be an opportunity for rejuvenation. Take the chance to rejuvenate your bodies, mind, and relationship with these activities that encourage connection and closeness. Don’t let an anniversary be just a reminder that you’ve been together one more year and are a year older. Let it revive and invigorate you.
