15 Great Couple Friendly Workouts
Start writing a post

Going out for a movie and dinner is nice, but mixing it up and doing a fun activity with your partner spices things up. I mean, couples who sweat together, stay together! Having a partner to endure the challenge of squats, planks, and other sweat-inducing, heart-pumping, blood flowing movements is definitely a bonus. Kind of funny that the side effects of workouts are similar to that of those generated by physical attractiveness: sweaty palms, short breaths, heart palpitations.

Within relationships, studies reveal that working out together leaves couples "feeling more satisfied with their relationships and more in love with their partner." Having fun with your loved one while benefiting your body? Sounds like a win-win to me.

We all want to have #relationshipgoals like those found on Instagram. Even Britney Spears and boyfriend Sam Asghari are "stronger together" as they conquer killer workouts together. How fun would it be to use one another to stretch out each other's body? Compete at a cycling race? Punch your anger away (on a dummy, of course)? Well, now is your chance!

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
