Marriage requires constant effort and attention, and sometimes you just need to get away, and take a break from the daily routine and grind. Doing so can really help strengthen the relationship and bring you closer together as a couple. In this blog post, we discuss how vacations and getaways can help couples reconnect physically and emotionally, reduce the stress in their life, reignite the spark and passion, and create exciting and fun new memories together that they will never forget.

So, whether you are newly married or you have been together for 40 years, taking a break and vacation with your spouse is crucial for a healthy and happy relationship.

How Vacations And Even Just An Overnighter Can Help Your Relationship

Taking vacations or getting away for even a night can help couples to reconnect and rediscover each other. In the craziness of everyday life, it is easy to get caught up in work, household chores, kids, activities and other responsibilities leaving little time for quality time with each other. It is amazing how getting away even if it is for a short time can really re-energize you as a couple.

Several years ago, Amy surprised me with a quick 2 night get a way to Las Vegas. If was last minute and I was worried about what I had to take care of at home, but we did it! The trip was very inexpensive and nothing fancy or exotic, but to this day, it was the most amazing time I have ever had together. We went to dinner, several movies and even just lounged around in the hotel. We made love several times and connected together on a deep level. Since that short 2 night get a way, being together and re connecting like that is something I not only look forward to, but we make time to do it and we make it a priority I our relationship.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to have a great time! The key is spending that quality time together and creating memories and having fun connecting emotionally and physically again! You could even just go hiking and campout, or grab a hotel in your city for the night.

Vacations and getaways can help to reduce stress and improve mental health. Stress is one of the biggest killers of a healthy relationship. When we are stressed out, we tend to become irritable, short-tempered, and less patient with our spouse. Taking a break from the routine and spending time in a relaxing environment where you can focus 100% on each other.. with no distractions, can help to reduce stress levels and improve both spouses mental health.

Thirdly, vacations and getaways can help to reignite passion and romance in a relationship like nothing else can. You are in a new and exciting environment where you can focus 100% on each other, and reconnect without any distractions.

Finally, vacations and getaways can help to create new memories and strengthen the bond between couples. Memories are one of the most valuable things couples can create together. When we create new memories together, we are building a shared history that we can look back on and cherish for years to come. Think about when you go through old photos or pictures on your device and see the places you went together and feelings it brings back!

How To Make Your Getaway Or Vacation a Romantic One

If you are going on a vacation or getaway together, you want to make it a romantic one. So here are some tips on how to make it romantic!

Choose the right destination: Choosing a romantic destination where you both want to go that can set the mood for your vacation. Look for destinations with beautiful scenery, intimate accommodations, and plenty of opportunities for romance such as candlelight dinners, couples’ massages, and sunset walks. A great romantic destination could also be somewhere where there isn’t going to be a ton of people.

Plan romantic activities together: Plan activities that you BOTH enjoy so that you can create special moments and memories. These could include a picnic on the beach, hot air balloon ride, snorkeling or many other things. Do things that you both enjoy and do them together.

Create a romantic atmosphere: Set the mood in your accommodations by bringing candles, play some romantic music, give each other an intimate massage, take a hot bath together or pick up a nice intimacy box from Ultimate Intimacy.

Unplug and disconnect: Take this opportunity to unplug from technology and social media. This is the most important thing you can do! Connect with your spouse and disconnect with your device. Focus on spending quality time with your spouse and ditch that device.

Surprise your spouse: Plan a surprise for your spouse, whether it’s a thoughtful gift, a special excursion, or a romantic gesture. Surprises can add an extra element of excitement and romance to your vacation. You can even surprise them with the vacation like Amy did for me!

Indulge in romance: Take advantage of the opportunity to indulge in romance. Enjoy couples’ spa treatments, and romantic dinners. Do things that you would not normally do for yourselves.

In conclusion, a romantic vacation is an excellent way to bring back the spark in your relationship and create lasting memories with each other. By choosing the right destination, planning romantic activities, creating a romantic atmosphere, disconnecting from technology, surprising your spouse, and indulging in romance, you can make your vacation a truly romantic and unforgettable experience together.
