Disconnect to Reconnect: Part TwoIn honor of the National Day of Unplugging, we’re bringing you tips on how to truly disconnect from the devices and reconnect with your loved ones. We explore some fun activities you can do with your partner, and the key with all of them of course, is to leave your phones in your pockets (or wherever) and focus on being present and engaging one another. You’ll be surprised what a fun new challenge can do to reignite the spark in your relationship!
Take a paint class at Pinot’s Palette.
Explore your artistic sides. Add your favorite drinks and music, and you’ve got a very lovely and romantic evening.
Take a cooking class.
Remember how fun it was in chemistry class to conduct experiments? Learning how to cook is a lot like that. It’s exciting and challenging, plus you’ll gain a valuable new skill.
Try paddle boarding.
Just-challenging-enough that it demands your focus, but also allows you to take in the quiet serenity of the outdoors with your love.
Try an escape room.
One of the hottest new activities these days, escape rooms challenge your critical thinking skills and teach you how to work as a team.
Hit a bar-cade (an arcade with a bar)
Get a drink and go play some Ski Ball! Compete with your S.O. to see who can win the most tickets, then cash them in for silly things you’ll both enjoy.
Seek Your Fortunes Together.
Go see your local fortune teller or palm reader.
Create an Outdoor Sanctuary.
Turn your porch, balcony, or other outdoor space into a dreamy hangout with seating, hammocks, lights, blankets, and rugs. Then cozy up together and enjoy it!
Working together to achieve a common goal unites and bonds you. It emphasizes so many of the qualities you liked about someone when you first became friends or fell in love with them. So engage each other, challenge each other, and remember why you want to be in each other’s lives. Get reacquainted and reconnected!
