5 Sexy Ways To Beat The Winter Blahs

Beat the winter blahs with these romantic, heat-generating activities!

1. Practice Yoga Together: Whether you go to a nearby studio or do a video in your living room, practicing yoga is a therapeutic way to combat inertia. Activate your heart chakra with back bends and eagle pose, and improve circulation with sun salutations. Sure, yoga is about focusing inward, but it can’t hurt to steal a few glances of your sweetie striking a dashing warrior pose, right? The mix of active and relaxation poses will make you feel refreshed in body, mind and spirit.

2. Have Mexican Night: If you can’t make it to a warm, sandy beach this winter, then you’ll just have to bring Paradise to you. Translation: Mexican Night! Mix margaritas, make homemade salsa and fry up some fish tacos or fajitas. The spicy food and fresh ingredients will warm up your kitchen, even if it’s minus-seventeen outside.

3. Stay In Bed: Spend a weekend day in bed with your partner. Begin with breakfast in bed, then watch a movie or episodes of your favorite TV show on your iPad. Bring stacks of books and magazines and the Saturday newspaper into bed with you. It’s too cold to go outside, anyway, so you may as well hunker down and get cozy between the sheets!

4. Go Ice Skating: If hibernating’s not your thing, bundle up and hit your local skating rink. You’ll definitely generate some heat as you and your beloved glide, hand-in-hand, around the rink. Take turns showing off your moves, no matter how amateur or professional they may be, and don’t forget to break for hot chocolate! If you’re a bit shaky in skates, opt for skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing for some cold-weather exercise.

5. Plan Your Summer Vacation: What could be better than spending a dark, frigid evening planning your summer getaway? Whether you’re vacationing in Italy, or taking a canoe trip through your favorite national park, you’ll get into a summer state of mind by planning all of the fun things you’ll do together while on holiday. From touring the Forum in Rome, to cliff-jumping in cottage country, planning the logistics of your warm-weather trip will help you forget about all of the ice and slush outside your front door.
