My parents' nearly 50-year relationship began with a log rolling lesson, and my marriage is the result of a lakeside log rolling rendezvous. So, even though I'm not a relationship expert, I do have some experience with love and log rolling. And I’m here to make the case that log rolling is a date night activity you should consider!
1. Shared New Experiences. You’ll never forget the first time you tried log rolling! Sharing new and unique experiences is a key tenet to keeping long-term relationships, well....long.
2. Vulnerability. According to a few quick Google searches, a healthy dose of vulnerability is crucial in happy relationships. Learning a new activity with your partner forces you to be a bit vulnerable. And falling into the water can be a humbling experience. But it’s the perfect opportunity to show encouragement and to cheer one another on.
3. Laughter. You will most certainly laugh when learning to log roll - because falling into the water is fun and funny! Just like exercise, laughter releases positive endorphins into your body. Why not do both together for a double dose of good feelings?
