1. Cook Dinner Together
Pick a favorite meal you both enjoy + prepare it together. While you’re at it, pour a glass of wine + put on some feel-good tunes. Reminisce on the good days.
2. Make Take-Out Food at Home
A lot of places are only take-out right now, but that can get pricey. For example, we miss Chinese food, but we are not in a place to be spending money, so we made our own DIY version of beef lo mein.
3. Clean Your Living Space Together
I can’t stress this enough! For the last week, I have felt like I was on “vacation mode” and slacked on my daily house cleaning schedule. My anxiety increased being in a cluttered area. My boyfriend and I cleaned our apartment together. ” A clean space makes for a happy place. “
4. Watch A Movie
After cleaning your home, light a scented candle and pop in your movie. Bonus points if you add some freshly popped popcorn.
5. Game Night
Game nights are big in our house. Nothing like a friendly game of flirty competition.
If you’re feeling lost and depressed in this whole mess, snuggle. Take a deep breath and be positive everything will be okay.
7. Have A Spa Night
Have your man paint those nails!
8. Camp Out in the Livingroom
Grab some cozy white lights (white Christmas tree lights work fine), throw some pillows and cozy throw blankets down and watch movies all night.
Baby oil, sensual music, and rubdowns. You’re welcome.
