No matter how hectic your schedule is, you need a day to unwind with your partner now and then. But if you entered a routine in your life, you might not know how to find the best things to do, so both of you enjoy such a day off. Here are the best ways to spend a relaxing day with your partner and reconnect in the midst of this busy life! 

1. Cook together 

Cooking together can be a fun and rewarding experience for both of you. Get one of those exotic recipes that are new for both of you and give it your best. You will love to experience new tastes and engage in funny conversations as you try to put together one of your best meals. 

Plus, you can always get creative with your recipe. Add a unique ingredient to give it the magic of your personality, and see how it turns out. Such an experience can’t turn bad, but it can undoubtedly turn hilarious and entertaining. In the worst-case scenario, you order pizza or go to your favorite restaurant. But cooking together will give you precious memories to cherish and even some inside jokes to laugh at for a long time. 

2. Outdoor activities 

If you both love to spend time in nature but lack the time to do so, this is the perfect occasion. You can take a long romantic walk, admiring the surroundings, or you can try more daring outdoor activities like hiking. If you live by a park or a nature reserve, you can relax the entire day outside and even enjoy a delicious picnic. And if the circumstances are favorable, you can end your day with some romantic stargazing. 

Spending time in nature helps both of you reconnect with each other and might even create the perfect circumstances for profound conversations. Not to mention that fresh air and green spaces have a magical way to recharge your batteries. You will be ready to take on the world after such an experience!

3. Dive into your joint hobbies

If you have activities that you enjoy doing together, this is the time to dive into them. Such activities will help you work like a team and develop your relationship even more. They remind you that you have valuable things in common and you can have great quality time as a couple. 

If you struggle to find activities that you can do together, you can always try new ones and find something that you both enjoy. If one of you likes painting, the other one can be the muse. Also, if you like singing, find a song that you both like and enjoy some karaoke. 

4. Home-Spa day 

Many people associate relaxing with a session at a fancy spa. If you are one of them, know that you can enjoy your spa session right in the comfort of your house. Use homemade face masks or buy your favorite brand, scented candles, or aromatherapy devices, and prepare a soothing bath to share with your partner. 

The sky’s the limit when it comes to creating your spa atmosphere, and you can find plenty of items to complete this vibe at your local grocery store. Not only that, but such a day will relax both of you, but it can also become very romantic. Leave all your worries behind and enjoy each other’s presence. 

5. Netflix and chill 

Watching movies together seems cliche, but it has a lot of potential if you are looking for a relaxing day with your partner. You will not just watch one movie; the Netflix variety is endless, and your next favorite series is just around the corner. 

Get your popcorn or favorite snacks and a cozy blanket, turn off the lights, and convert your home into a captivating cinema! You will feel completely recharged and ready to get back to your busy lives after a movie marathon together! End the day with an intimate encounter under those soft blankets and share the gratitude of having each other in your lives. 

6. Yoga day 

Yoga can be an intense yet relaxing activity, and it has its perks when you do it as a couple. A zen session together will help both of you forget your problems and feel a lot more connected to each other. All you need is two yoga mats and an inspiring video to guide you through this session, especially if you are both new to yoga. 

Don’t be surprised if such a session ends with some intense intimacy, as yoga can unlock your energy in a highly profound way. Both of you will feel much more grounded and might even decide to repeat this experience on a regular basis. 

7. Try a creative activity

If both of you are creative people, you can’t go wrong by trying a creative activity together during your day off. You can go to an art class in your area or try a DIY project at home. Whether you like painting, crafting, or pottery, you can count on the fact that you will have a great time together. 

Creative activities help you learn new skills, discover new sides of your personality, and connect with your lover at a deeper level. You will look at each other from a new perspective as you express your creative side, and the best thing about it is that there are no limits. 


Each couple is different and has their preferences, but the key to enjoying a relaxing day together is being willing to put your worries aside. This is your special day off, and no work concerns or other disturbances have a place in it. 

What matters the most is to rediscover the bond you have with your significant other and relax your mind in a way that recharges you for whatever life throws your way. Use your imagination to discover new things you can do with your partner, and allow yourself to experience a day of tranquility whenever you need a break!
