Sometimes the pressures of daily life leave us with little time for romance, especially if you have children. Taking a vacation is a great way to ease stress and rekindle the romance with your partner and recharge your batteries, but if you bring your children with you, you can often return just as tired. While family vacations are great, nothing quite beats a no kids vacation for reconnecting with your partner. Nowadays, adults only resorts like Hotel Mousai are becoming more and more popular, offering a haven for tired parents looking for a break from their kids as well as peace and quiet for those who have chosen not to raise a family.
No kids vacations might save your marriage
If you want to keep your marriage healthy you might consider leaving the kids at home now and then as experts say that traveling alone with your spouse is a great way to keep your relationship fresh and strong. Kids are wonderful, of course, but travelling to a place where you can just be yourselves (instead of mom or dad) can be just what the doctor ordered and a great way to rekindle the passion in your relationship.
Finding what makes YOU happy!
Respected psychologists agree that those people who take the time to meet their own needs and goals are generally happier, and such an investment in your own happiness can only be beneficial for those reliant on you, too. For a start, signs of happiness in a relationship teach children that loving interactions in marital relations are important and normal. So, when you commit to a weekly date night, for example, you are setting a good example and standard for your child’s relationships in the future, as well as investing in your own happiness. A no kids vacation is not a rejection of your children, but a great boost to help you become even better parents.
Remembering why you fell in love
A no kids vacation need not be a long-haul or extremely costly affair; a romantic rendezvous or a weekend getaway can be just as effective in nurturing the relationship that created your family. In fact, such interactions can be a way to rediscover the things you fell in love with regarding your partner. It’s so important to keep in touch with the sides of yourself that existed before you became a parent; you are more than just who you are at home.
Having fun together
Once children are in the picture, “fun” becomes wholly their definition of the word, and parents often forget what fun was for them before the patter of tiny feet. Many parents spend all their time on vacations entertaining their little ones, which is why choosing an adults only vacation helps you to focus on what YOU love to do. Do something new, or something you know you love, just make sure you do it together.
Get a great night’s sleep
Parents of young children in particular will know that this is a real luxury; constant exhaustion, restless nights, and a double dose of stress can make you cranky, tired, and emotionally drained, and this is very bad for your love-life. Sometimes the best and most rewarding aspect of a weekend away or a no kids vacation as a couple is the ability to nap together without being awoken early. Spooning during a siesta goes out the window when you have young kids, and yet it’s such an easy way to build intimacy. The suites at Hotel Mousai are the perfect setting for romantic siestas.
Hold hands, kiss, hug, play with each others hair; this might all sound very teenage, but it’s really not. Don’t succumb to the idea that romantic gestures have to be dropped when you’re short of time because it simply isn’t enough to just say “I love you”; you need to feel loved, and so does your partner. You’d be surprised how taking the seconds to do these things will make tough situations and bad days so much easier to handle, too.
Join us at Hotel Mousai for the most elegant no kids vacations. You will find plenty of opportunity for rekindling the romance in Puerto Vallarta at this 5 Diamond adult only resort.
