A little R&R&R
Rest and Relax and Romance
This is what getting away for the honeymoon, the destination wedding or the romantic vacation with your spouse or significant other. While those are 3 simple words, rest, relax and romance…it is not so easy to detach from reality for everyone. This is something I recommend we do as couples on a regular basis if possible. This is taking date night up a notch and the reasons why are:
- Rest- Most of us works full time jobs and then some right? Spending 40 hours a week at work or more. After work we have house duties to tend to, kids. What about Weekends… what are yours filled with? Errands, volunteering, extracurricular activities, kids? We are always on the go. Our bodies need to rest. While we do get a good night’s sleep usually when we go to bed we still have work or kids on our minds and when we wake up …work or kids…..
While on vacation you are disconnected from your normal routine. You can rest. You don’t have to worry about tomorrow’s staff meeting or calling clients back. You can go to bed and not worry about what is on tomorrow’s agenda. This helps us to get an even better nights rest.
Relax- or Recharge. Take the time on this vacation, honeymoon to relax and recharge YOU. Let your cares and worries go. Put your phone down. Especially when going away on your honeymoon or with your significant other…read a magazine or a book. A real book one with real pages. Make sure this is not a work related book …take time to let your mind relax and be more open. Take naps, take walks, look at nature and your surroundings. If playing golf, snorkeling, spa, or shopping relaxes you then do it. You deserve this. Your body needs this. Your brain and your soul need this. This is what keeps us going and helps us to be better in life.
- Romance- yes this is the 3rd R! And probably the most important. Now I’m not talking sappy romance either. However, you go all out if you feel comfortable and this is a part of your relationship or its something you want to do . However, Just planning this get away together is romantic. If it’s a honeymoon or a romantic getaway than make it just that. Be there and in the moment with your special someone. Play in the pools. Dance, sing, laugh, and flirt! Have the fun you had when you first started dating! Hold hands, plan a couples massage. This the time that you need as a couple. We get caught up in everyday life at home and while we may take time out for each other and do a date night or something like that a romantic trip will really help strengthen your relationship and help you to get to know each other all over again and the reasons you fell in love in the first place.
