February is the month of love, but a strong relationship is built over many years. Sure, February 14 is a good opportunity to express your affection for your loved one, but if you’re serious about that person, you should lay the groundwork for a healthy relationship from the start.

- You’ll fight less often
The minute you get in shape, get fit, and start burning fat, you’re naturally calmer, happier and releasing feel-good endorphins. Exercise is a great way of releasing frustration the natural way and you’ll find yourself letting trivial irritations slide.

In the same way shelving bad habits is easier in company, an eating plan is all the more fun with your paramour at your side.

But working out with a loved one neatly circumnavigates the temptation to miss workout sessions. Now, you’re not only letting down yourself, but someone you care about too.
- You’ve got more… energy
Energy is the elixir of life, whether we’re at work or home. You’ll find yourself far more energetic and willing to do more with your partner. And that includes when the lights go out…
