It’s pretty tempting to sit at home shoveling chocolate-covered strawberries into your mouth with your honey on Valentine’s Day, and that’s probably a nice way to spend time together and get your hearts a-flutter. However, that’s probably not the best thing for your heart from a health perspective. Why not take your valentine by the hand and get outside or engage in a fun new activity?
Solidify that passionate bond and get the exercise benefits of these seven activities this February 14th…
1. Go Outdoor Skating
If you don’t know how to skate, Valentine’s Day is as good a day as any. Not only will you learn a new skill and have a few laughs, you can earn some trust ensuring your partner doesn’t fall head over heels…on the ice.
Skating is an ideal activity that is low-impact on the joints and lets you breathe some fresh air if you know a public outdoor rink. For those of you in warmer climates, an indoor rink can be just as nice, and you won’t need to bundle up as much.
