Stuck at Home Date Ideas: How to Use Self Care to Date from Home

at home date ideas

 

Are you suffering from quarantine fatigue? We get it! Everyone is sick of staying at home all day.

But, staying at home doesn't have to be a tragedy. If you miss date nights and good times, you can have those right at home.

We know that it won't be the same, but it's still fun and - of course - safe. All you need are a couple of at-home date ideas to get you started.

Luckily, we have a plethora of ideas to make your home life a little bit more exciting. Grab a pen and paper, and keep reading. You'll want to write these down.

Take a Bath Together

If you and your partner are looking for one of the sincerest forms of intimacy, take a bath with one another. If you aren't bath people, a shower will do.

Light some candles, dim the lights, grab the wine, turn up the music and start the bubbles. Create a romantic space that you'll both enjoy. Take this time to cuddle, talk, or just spend quiet time together.

Baths are a great form of self care and - when enjoyed with a partner - they can be a romantic getaway.

Unfortunately, a lot of us don't have baths big enough to fit both individuals. If you find that you can't take a bath together, you can opt for a shower or use one of our other great ideas.

Read a Book Together

This one is for all of you bookworms out there. Reading books that you enjoy is a great self-care technique. When enjoyed with a partner, you can get more out of the experience and have something to bond over.

Even if you and your partner don't like the same kinds of books, you can get something out of reading the book and discussing it with one another. You can also work to find a book that both of you will enjoy. Remember, you can always read your favorites in your alone time (which you should regularly have).

If you and your partner are polar opposites when it comes to taste in books, consider switching off every other book. Believe it or not, doing this can help you learn more about your partner.

By seeing and enjoying the things that he or she likes, you're exploring his or her personality more than you ever have.

Exercise Together

Everyone needs some movement in their day. What better way to get that movement in than by spending the time with your partner.

Whether you're an intense or a chill exerciser, we're sure you can find some way to enjoy the time with your significant other.

In fact, exercising can serve as a metaphor in some relationships. For those of you who aren't regular exercisers, you may find that you struggle through some of the tougher moves. In that struggle, you'll have your partner by your side.

This is the chance for you and your partner to cheer each other on.

If you both don't have the same plans when it comes to exercising, try to find a compromise. Or, you can use or trick from before and switch off the days when one of you chooses what to do.

Meditate or Do Yoga Together

Just like everyone needs movement in their day, we also need a wind-down. Whether it's to settle your thoughts or it allows you to get away a little bit, meditation and yoga are two great activities to do alone and together.

There are plenty of yoga poses for couples that you and your partner can try out together. Even if you both aren't yoga superstars, you can learn how to fail and try together.

It can be a sobering experience to struggle with your partner. Just like exercise, it'll teach you and your partner skills to handle arguments in the future.

Fortunately, at-home date night ideas like these are great in and outside of the home.

Take Photographs Together

Taking pictures is a great stay-at-home date activity. Whether you and your partner are done-up or not, you're likely to end up with a great result.

Take some photos together and some apart. Take pictures of your bedroom, your children, or your dog. Whatever it is, have fun with it.

You are capturing memories with every single shot you take. 

While you're taking pictures of one another, you'll find that you become more intimate with one another. Cheering one another on and taking photos of your partner are experiences that will bring you two closer.

If one of you doesn't enjoy taking pictures, get creative with it. Find backgrounds, props, and poses that you'll have fun with and laugh about.

Photography doesn't have to be serious, especially when you're having a fun date night with your partner.

Do Some Skincare

Skincare is a fantastic nighttime ritual for anyone to have. All you need to do is pull your hair back with a Turbie Twist and get to work using your favorite products. It's relaxing, rejuvenating, and soothing.

Once you've found the perfect products for your face, you'll be ready to get some R&R.

If you or your partner doesn't know the first thing when it comes to skincare, it's okay to let the other person guide you. If both of you are unsure what to do, you can start from scratch together.

Try to find products that work for both of you together. Some simple online research can get you both the products that you'll use for life.

Remember to have fun together even if no one knows what they're doing.
