May is Date Your Mate Month! There is nothing like a healthy, supportive relationship that helps to reduce stress and in turn, keeps your immune system strong and your body healthy. While we can’t go out on our ‘regular’ date nights, it’s important to keep the spark alive and try new ways to take care of each other at home.
Having a date night is a great way to check-in with each other, catch up on what is happening for both of you personally, and to find new ways that you can support one another. You may be seeing your partner more often than you usually do if you’re both working from home or your regular activities are cancelled so making sure you connect on a meaningful level is more vital than ever.
Try something fun from home, do some arts and crafts, play a board game, have a cook-off, or do something as simple as run a bath after a tough day for each other. Keep the lines of communication open this Date Your Mate Month, take care of each other, and stay healthy.
