How to Get Your Spouse to Exercise
Exercise comes with an incredibly large pool of benefits, such as prolonged life, disease prevention, and weight control, but that doesn’t mean that the idea of breaking a sweat and sacrificing time out of your day is always appealing.
So, what do you do if you’ve decided to live a healthy lifestyle, but you have a spouse who is, shall we say, reluctant? How can you convince your loved one to get on board with your idea and join you on the journey to fitness?
Here are three ways to get your spouse on board:
Sure, this may sound obvious, but a nice long talk could go a long way in convincing your spouse to exercise with you. Sit down and explain what you want to do, how you will do it, and, most importantly, why exercise means so much to you, and there’s a good chance they will see the light.
2) Make It Fun
Does your spouse dislike running, but enjoy a nice game of racquetball? Making exercise into something fun for them is an easy way to compromise and meet both of your goals.
3) Do It Together
Instead of lecturing your spouse on why they should exercise, make it a thing that you do together. Turning a lonely jog into a romantic walk in the park may turn exercise time into something that actually helps develop your relationship.
