5 Reasons You and Your Lover Should Get Away

Looking for a way to spice up your relationship? Or maybe you just want to take time for you and your partner to spend some alone time together. Well, taking a vacation with your lover may be just what you need to strengthen or re-energize you, your relationship and relieve yourself from the daily stressors in life.
 
Naturally, we all fall into patterns in life. Wake up, walk the dog, grab a cup of coffee, go to work, come home from work, cook dinner, complain about work, watch TV, go to bed. Sound familiar? Some people find it difficult to leave their jobs at the workplace and take the stress from work home with them. Others fall into the monotony of doing the same activities everyday at home and can begin to feel bored or annoyed. If daily life between you are your partner seems to be stale or you find yourself easily getting frustrated about daily tasks like keeping your home clean, doing the dishes and calling to handle “grown-up issues”, then a vacation for you and your partner is just what the doctor ordered. Yes! A vacation really can help strengthen your relationship and give you a much needed refresher from everyday life! Here are 5 benefits of vacationing for you and your loved one:
 

1. Forget about daily routine

When you are home there is always something to do or take care of. You or your partner are constantly asking the other to help with something, whether it be the kids, dinner, laundry, the dog or dishes. There’s always something to do and most of the time, you don’t want to do it! A vacation is a great way for you and your partner to just enjoy each other! No need to worry about making the bed or cleaning the bathroom. A vacation is an opportunity to forget about those daily tasks even if it’s only for a night or two and just talk about things other than what needs to be done around the house! I dare you to not mention home obligations for a whole day!
 

2. Bond over things you enjoy to do together

On your vacation find something fun you and your partner can both enjoy doing together. When you are doing something you enjoy or love, your natural happiness within you will shine. I recently took a ski trip with my partner and we had an amazing time! He snowboards and I ski, and he is much better than I am. His patience and kindness while we skied was so genuine and made me feel so loved. Being by ourselves laughing and enjoying time alone really helped to strengthen the bond we already knew we had.
 

3. Change your mood…for the better!

Going on vacation affects your mood positively! Switching up your daily routine and physically changing your environment can change the way you think and feel about your partner and yourself. When you leave the stressors of daily life behind you allow time to get in tune with yourself, feel calmer and more at peace. This is good for you and your significant other to just enjoy each other.
 

4. More “WE” less me

Most women crave attention and togetherness in their relationships. A big complaint in relationships from men and women is that they do not have enough free time and do not get enough attention from their partner. Vacations allow for just this type of time. You can focus more on yourselves as a couple, “we”, and forget about all the stressors that affect you, “me”. On vacation you can give your partner your undivided attention both emotionally and sexually. Sometimes all people need is some nice conversation without interruptions and full attention to feel loved.
 

5. Re-energize and relieve stress

Whether you’re feeling overwhelmed by work or daily life, you may feel that you just don’t have the time to get away. That is a sign that you absolutely need to get away! Even if you don’t feel tired and you feel like you could just keep going, it is always important to slow down and take time for you and your significant other. Without realizing it you can become run down which affects your physical resistance and mental health. It’s important to disconnect yourself from daily life from time to time, especially when you are constantly on the go. Vacationing even for a day trip or an overnight stay can help to improve your mental health by allowing your mind to rest and be free from stress and worry. A happier you means a better partner for your significant other. Give yourself and your partner the best you you can be, you both deserve it.
 
Vacations can be costly, but there are ways to get around that! Think about taking a Sunday drive to a nearby town you’ve never explored. A day at the beach or a day on the ski slopes, depending on where you live. If you have kids, take them along with you! It can be a good escape for the whole family. Just because you can’t get away to Turks and Caicos doesn’t mean you can’t make something work. Discount websites offer tons of day trips, hotels and discount tickets to a variety of vacations and events. It might take a little time and research, but the benefits will be more than worth it! Start planning your getaway with your lover today.
