Activities to Keep Your Relationship Fresh

Activities to Keep Your Relationship Fresh
While relationships need a certain amount of excitement and unpredictability to stay interesting, ongoing traditions are also important to maintain stability. And just because it’s a routine doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Explore activities that you can do with your significant other to not only keep the fire of love alive, but also make it thrive. The element of your partner’s Sun sign can give insight into what types of activities they most enjoy.

Air Signs
Gemini, Libra and Aquarius love to communicate, so a ritual that involves talking, writing or anything to do with words will engage them. Air signs need to be stimulated mentally or they’ll get bored, so plan an activity that keeps their mind active.
Activity Ideas: A Saturday night of word games like Scrabble or Boggle for just the two of you. A monthly poetry contest where you take turns composing haiku’s about your feelings for each other. Attending a poetry jam or book reading of your favorite author.

Fire Signs
Aries, Leo and Sagittarius want action and movement, and can have a hard time sitting still. Though they may not like to do the same thing all the time, having one night a week scheduled for fun is good for them -- as long as the activity is exciting and stimulating.

Activity Ideas: Join a rock-climbing gym and climb together once a week. Sign up for a dance class that neither of you know. Plan a weekly date, trying a different venue each time.

Water Signs
Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces need to connect emotionally on a regular basis, so pick an activity that allows opportunity for the two of you to relate in an intimate way. Going beyond the day-to-day and rediscovering each other’s emotional depth will help Water signs feel more invested in the relationship. You also need to explore your imagination, so artistic activities help you open up.
Activity Ideas: Have a regular movie night where you see films that are emotionally impactful. Take an art class together so you can share your creative explorations. Have a daily or weekly dream sharing time, where you exchange important dreams you’ve had.

Earth Signs

Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn are practical and like to see hands-on results for their efforts. Rituals and routines that accomplish something will please these signs the most. They’d rather do something useful with you than just be entertained. Try activities that are fun but that actually accomplish something at the same time.
Activity Ideas: Volunteer for a clean-up party at your local nature spot. Plant or care for a garden together. Create a fun money-making endeavor that you both can work on, sharing responsibilities.
