In relationships, communication is essential. One interesting study has shown that, over the course of a year, couples who claimed to have a positive communication style also reported more satisfaction within the relationship. The opposite is also true – the worse your communication is, the more dissatisfaction you feel in your relationship.

When faced with relationship conflicts, we naturally get defensive. Everyone’s defences are different and normally develop in childhood. For example, when arguing with your spouse, you might storm out the house. You might completely shut down and go to bed. You might embark on a spiky verbal rampage of cutting accusations. Whatever you do, you are simply trying to protect yourself in that moment.
In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy for couples to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life. Between work, family obligations, and other responsibilities, finding time to connect with your partner can be a challenge. That’s why a couple’s getaway can be an essential ingredient for a happy and healthy relationship.
A couples getaway can take many forms, from a weekend trip to a nearby city to a more extended vacation in a tropical paradise. Whatever the destination, the goal is the same: to take a break from the stresses of everyday life and focus on each other.
