6 Tips To Surviving Your Vacation As A Couple
A vacation can either be a great way to relax, get away from our daily stress and get closer as a couple. or it can be the exact opposite. These tips will make sure your vacation is memorable for all the right reasons.
6 – Don’t Spend Every Second Together
We’re not saying don’t spend time together on your vacation. We’re just saying don’t spend every waking second together. No matter how much in love a couple is, everyone needs some along time to themselves. Having time to ourselves is very healthy and it makes us appreciate our partner even more.
5 – Remember The Reason You Took The Vacation
Whether it’s to get away from work, relax on the beach, or visit a particular attraction, keep in mind why you took the vacation. There will always be plenty of distractions (some welcomed and some unwelcomed) that will throw your vacation off course. Remembering why you are on vacation will help you reset your course.
4 – Don’t Overdo The Partying And Drinking
We want to unwind and have fun on our vacations and for most of us that includes attending a few parties and indulging in adult beverages. Booze can be a great way to blow off some steam but things can get out of hand very quickly. When drunk, we are more likely to get into arguments with our partners, not to mention the fact that a bad hangover can ruins your next days plans.
3 – Plan Ahead To Avoid Disappointment
There is nothing worse on a vacation than not being able to do something that you were really looking forward to. Whether it be a very busy attraction or a restaurant that needs reservations day or weeks in advance, make sure to plan ahead. A little research goes a long way.
2 – Make Sure Everyone Gets A Say In What You Do During The Vacation
Seldom is the entire vacation planned together. More often than not, one person will take the lead role in planning a significant amount of the vacation. It is important to make sure that everyone’s wishes are looked after. You don’t want your partner to feel like they are just tagging along on your vacation.
1 – Don’t Spend The Entire Vacation On your Phone
Our phones are always with us and they they give us the opportunity to capture our vacation and share it with our family and friends. Our phones can also be a huge distract while on vacation. Be sure that you and your partner are not spending the majority of your vacation staring down at your phone instead of enjoying each other.
