Do you spend your spare time together watching an entire season on Netflix? That’s ok once in a while, but is it really quality time? Surely there are more exciting things to do as a couple? If you need a break from the norm, here are five ideas to make the most of the little time you spend together as a couple and revive your relationship.

Horse Trekking

A great way to spend time outdoors as a couple is to go horse riding and it’s a pretty romantic activity too. Show your other half just how suave you are as you gallop off together into the sunset. Don’t worry you won’t be on your own, most trips are fully supervised and you’ll be led along a known route. Even if you are a complete beginner it’s a lovely activity to enjoy and learn together.  It could turn out to be a real fairy-tale.

Mountain biking

If you want to get a bit more physical with your outdoor activities then why not try some competitive mountain biking? Another excellent way to get outdoors as a couple and it doesn’t cost much either. There are lots of dedicated trails across the UK, ranging in difficulty depending on your ability. But you could also just go for a bike ride in your local park too. Maybe it will become a regular activity you enjoy together.

Go shooting

If you need to blow off some steam then a day at the shooting range might help you do just that. Test your skills and concentration to hit different targets and how to handle a firearm correctly. Learn correct shooting positions and breathing techniques from professional experienced instructors. Sometimes you get to take home your target sheet o you can show everyone how good, or not so good you were at hitting the bullseye. You might get to know each other a little better too. Ready, aim fire!


If you want to go to the extreme then what about a skydive? It’s not for the faint-hearted but it’s certainly a thrill! Jump out of a plane and feel the rush of the air against your face before the pop of the parachute opening and gliding down to earth. It’ll give you something to talk about for quite a while. Remember when we jumped out of a plane together? How many couples can say that?

Spa days

If all that exercise seems a bit too much, then taking a spa day together might be the perfect solution. You are best together when you are relaxed, and a massage and a sauna and steam might be just the ticket to the bliss you’ve been looking for. Taking time out to yourself is a good way to re-centre and treat yourself after a hard week at work instead of plonking yourself in front of the tv to veg out. You deserve it!

How will you choose to spend your time?

Do any of these activities take your fancy? It can be hard to break the routine of setting down in front of the tv and binge watching. But trying some new activities together as a couple might improve your relationship and quell that boredom.

What do you do to change up your routine and enjoy your time together as a couple? Whether it’s taking part in a short outdoor activity or taking a road trip together. There are so many different things to try to keep your relationship fresh. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
