Relaxing Date Nights Ideas:

These 5 relaxing date ideas will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated before, during, and after the date is over

I can hardly believe it’s August already! This month always seems to throw everyone into a tailspin of business. Whether you have children or not, the back to school schedule changes seems to get everyone in gear and back on busy schedules.

With the stress of life, adding a date night to the mix doesn’t always feel relaxing. Often, a relaxing night is just what the doctor ordered! Which is why relaxing date ideas are just in order!

This has me thinking of ways to really carve out some quality time with your significant other and relax during special date night time. Ironically, August 15th is National Relaxation Day, so the timing to carve out a relaxing date night couldn’t be better.

Here are 5 Relaxing Date Ideas to get your through this busy month:

1. Couples Massage

Is there anything more relaxing than being pampered in low lighting, candles, and having soothing music playing? This may be the best to get all the tension and toxins of the busy season out, and enjoy it with your significant other! Plus, bonus, it’s super romantic.

2. Star Gazing

Grab an air mattress and pump, a few pillows, and some snacks and head outside of the big city where stars are clear and easy to see. Download Google Sky or another stargazing app, and enjoy looking at constellations together. Another great thing, minus the price of gas and snacks, this date is totally free.

3. Bookstore Read-a-thon Date

Either bring your own novel or go find a new one at your favorite bookstore, and cuddle up on one of their chairs or tables at a cafe, and spend some time unwinding with a favorite book.

4. Brunch

We make such a big deal out of Saturday chores, that Saturday often become more stressful than weekdays. The fuss of getting ready for a dinner date can sometimes lead to more stress. I suggest you ditch both of these ideas one Saturday or Sunday morning and just go to brunch. Have a lazy morning together, let yourself indulge in your favorite breakfast food, and enjoy someone else cleaning up the dishes! Or keep on those PJs and make something at home yourself. No makeup or shoes required!

5. Take a Long Walk

We often underestimate how peaceful, romantic, and nice it can be to just find some great scenery and hold hands while walking. If you live near a beach, lucky you- perfect walk location! If not, we love parks, lakes, rivers, canals, and mountains. Release some endorphins and enjoy this free activity together with this easy relaxing date idea.

    A perfect day of relaxation would be a massage, brunch, and a walk. Although, after a massage, I'd probably want a nap.

  2. Do you know, I've only ever had one massage in my life?! i think a couples massage is a really lovely idea. So romantic too! We always go for long walks together until the sky goes dark Then we lie on the grass and watch the stars pop up one by one!
