5 Things To Do While Hubby Watches Super Bowl 2016
Let’s be honest here: each year, when Super Bowl season comes around, you might not be looking forward to watching all that football! If you’re stumped for ways to entertain yourself while your hubby is glued to the TV, look no further than these great Super Bowl alternative activities that will totally sweeten your existence.
Make it a party
As the famous saying goes, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.” So your partner is totally stoked for this year’s Super Bowl? Invite over some of your mutual friends and their girlfriends or wives! Get into the competitive spirit together – your connection with your partner will only grow. Nachos and other finger foods paired with some good cocktails for the ladies and beer for the gents will make the whole day (and night) a blast! If you’re really competitive, make a game out of the game with “harmless” bets (“If my team wins, you have to do the dishes for a week.”)
Girls' day out!
Leave the guys to their football, and enjoy a day out with your friends! Go shopping, see a movie and get lunch. You’ll enjoy the chance to share everything that’s happened in your busy lives since you last met up, and have some healthy you-time as well!
Read (or catch up on Netflix)
There’s no rule that says you have to watch the game with your hubby. If you like, use this time to dive into that book you’ve been meaning to finish or read the latest issue of that magazine on your coffee table. You can even binge-watch your favorite shows on Netflix – these days, Netflix has handy mobile apps that let you watch right from your phone or device, even if someone’s monopolizing the TV.
The Super Bowl gives you a great opportunity to get out of the house and hit the gym while your hubby watches the game. In a few hours, you can get in a solid workout that will leave you feeling energized and satisfied. If you’re not a gym girl, try going for a run or getting some friends together for a bike ride. You’ll do as much physical activity as the players on the field, and you’ll feel really accomplished too!
Visit parents or family
If your parents or relatives aren’t watching the Super Bowl themselves, this is a great day/night for a visit. You’ll have enough time to really sit down and talk, and everyone will appreciate your presence on a day when most people are stuck in front of the TV! This option will help improve your bond with siblings or parents you may not have seen in a while.
