When was the last time, just the two of you, like it, was before you had children, careers and responsibilities went away together on a romantic getaway? Just like anything in life, relationships take hard work. With obligations such as children’s schooling and after-school activities, demanding careers to hectic work schedules that keep you at the office till late—romance often takes the back seat.
All couples need to reconnect with each other from time to time, but it’s so easy to get sucked in by the hustle and bustle of everyday life, creating a barrier for couples to spend time together. As a result, relationships often end up on the rocks, with the fire between them eventually burning out. Not only do couples need a break from their chaotic lifestyles, but they also need to make time for each other, and what better way to escape reality, than a romantic getaway. While we could give you 100 reasons to take time out for a romantic getaway, you only really need these two.
#1 Restores romance and intimacy
Alone time together is essential for keeping the romance alive in a relationship. It slows you both down and allows you to move at the same tempo. Intimacy is one of the most important things that hold a relationship together, and spending time with your partner in an intimate setting will bring you closer together and re-ignite forgotten feelings of intimacy, which is just the thing you need to spice up things in the bedroom department.
Conversation is a whole new level of intimacy. Couples often stop talking and confiding in each other, but on romantic getaways, couples gain a different perspective on their lives. Romantic getaways are gifts that keep on giving, even long after the getaway is over.
#2 Reduces stress and improves mental health
In an age where it’s almost impossible to unplug and share priceless moments with our partners, we all need to take a step back and indulge in the sweet scent of nature and romance. Ask anyone who suffers from city stress and anxiety and they will all tell you that a good romantic getaway with their better half is good for the mind, body and soul. Stress is a silent killer and in today’s fast-paced world, we all need to take care of both our own and our partner’s mental health by getting away from it all, even if it’s just for a few days.
While you may have only a few months to go till the summer holidays, we’re sure you and your better half wouldn’t mind a romantic getaway to rekindle that spark and recharge those batteries. And there is no better place to do this than at Kievits Kroon Country Estate.
