5 ways to become a healthier couple

5 ways to become a healthier couple

Falling in love is one of the best feelings. It’s just comforting to know that you have your better half to confide in during the ups and downs of life, especially after last year. But, when you enter a new relationship, you might not just gain a partner, but also a few extra pounds. Yes, it’s called “love pounds” and not to worry, it’s pretty common. Researchers have said that couples gain weight because they’re getting more comfortable in the relationship.

While this is a sign of a happy union, this may also be the effect of poor health choices, such as disregarding personal wellness routines and continuing poor eating habits. AXA Philippines, one of the country’s leading insurers offering a wide range of health plans, offers some tips on how to get your healthy habits back on track with your partner.

Set a goal. Everything starts with talking it out with your partner and setting your goals. Do you want to shed some weight? Try a new eating plan? Together you can discuss the habits you want to change, such as buying less junk food or setting a regular time for your workout. Whatever it is, make sure that you’re both happy with the decisions and that they will drive you towards living healthier every day.

Cook at home together. Eating better plays a huge part in improving your health, and preparing your own food at home can help with that. For one, you get to control what you eat so you’re sure that everything is fresh and nutritious. You also get to plan your meals and personalize your diet to your liking. Moreover, it’s a lot cheaper than eating out and you get to spend some time with your partner in the kitchen. It’s a win-win!

Join fitness programs together. How about trying something different for your date nights? Instead of the usual romantic dinner, you can break a sweat and burn some calories by joining those online exercises classes you’ve been meaning to try –whether it be Zumba, yoga, or boxing. Many fitness studios now offer virtual sessions you can do from the safety of your own home. No more excuses!

Support each other. It will be easier to stick to your fitness regimen if you support each other. Build a healthy and supportive lifestyle by going jogging together, tracking each other’s progress, and encouraging each other to make healthy choices. Aside from the physical benefits, another beautiful thing about trying to be healthy together is you get to forge a stronger bond.

Get health insurance. During these challenging times, it should also be part of your couple goals to stay protected against any health risks. Critical illnesses can hit anyone, anytime – even the most physically fit and active individuals. So apart from the tips listed above, you should also prepare for life’s uncertainties. One way to do this is by considering health insurance, such as AXA’s Health Start Lite. No need to go outside to process an application for this as it’s available via https://www.axa.com.ph/healthstartlite/.
