Couples That Workout Together, Stay Together

If you come to DanceXperience, you already know the studio sweethearts, Ray and Dinette Tate. The Tates were the first to come to mind when thinking about #couplegoals and February love. 

Ray and Dinette, both age 71, met in junior high but started "dating" in high school and went to prom together . They got married in May 1965 and they've been working out ever since! 

Of their 53 years of marriage, they  said they've been taking Damon's dance classes for about 25. (We looked back at their studio history and it's rare if they miss a week!) So when asked what their favorite current workout is, they said, "Damon's class!"

Ray said the secret to their success and advice for other couples: "Share the same interests." Dinette laughed and added, "sometimes." He said, "Try it together...and respect each other." If someone says no, you have to compromise. For example, Ray points out with a smile, "There are two things I can't do: get a motorcylce or a Vitamix...she says I have too many appliances." 

And that's why we love the Tates.

What Have You Done For Yourself Today? 

February is the month of love and also the time when our "new year" resolutions start to fall away. I have experienced this shift in myself and with friends and loved-ones that have so many goals on January 1, 2018 and then come February, they are disappointed or beating themselves up for not maintaining the long list. One of the main things I see is that changing too many things all at once often does not have positive long-term results. 

This month, try to focus on ONE thing each day that you can do for your own self-care and well being. This is like a month long resolution. Valentines Day is a beautiful expression of us honoring those we love around us but what about showing ourselves some love? Self-care is an act of self-love. So, lay down the guilty feelings, that feeling that you constantly have to DO for others and carve out some space for yourself. When you are healthy and whole, you can give way more love to your family and friends. 

Here are a few Self-Care ideas that you can easily do each day:
  • Take an Epsom salt bath
  • Do some yoga stretches
  • Read for a half hour
  • Write in a Journal
  • Get a Massage or ask a loved one ;)
  • Allow yourself to take a nap if you are tired!
  • Practice deep breathing for 3 minutes
Yours in Health, Love and Yoga,

Charis, RYT 200
