Being a mother or father isn’t easy. It can seem like there is no time for either of you between work and kids. Physical activity can bring both of you closer together, making you feel more connected which doesn’t involve getting intimate. Working out is a great way to connect, and also keep in shape at the same time. Make your partner your workout buddy!
Working out together improves the quality of a relationship because of the physiological arousal experienced while working out. It’s similar to getting intimate, and your body can’t distinguish between the two. Simply put, it feels good to exercise, and when you’re with your partner, you’re getting the added benefit of bonding. It can also bring the same benefits as working out in a group, which increases your motivation to go to the gym, as well as increasing your chances of completing a workout regime.
Most importantly, and with scientifically backed research, working out improves the emotional bond between parents. Improving the emotional bond with your partner leads to a whole host of benefits, most importantly creating a loving environment to raise children in.
