As psychologists have proved, the reason for the frequent quarrels between couples who are going on a trip together is the usual stress associated with a trip: the change of the usual rhythm of life, the new environment, and so on. When there are two people, there can be two solutions. But what if the solutions are the opposite? Therefore, here are 7 secrets for people who are traveling together so that not to spoil the long-awaited rest.
How to travel together
- Plan your budget
The fact that you are on vacation doesn’t mean that you need to spend money on everything you want. Who wants to come back home without a penny? When planning a budget, you should take into account both attendance of events and food expenses. So, don’t waste money at the very beginning or in the middle of a trip because it may turn out that the rest of the planned activities will be abandoned. The budget and its planning reduce stress and give you a pleasant feeling that everything is under control and it’s good.
- Be patient
If you are an impatient person, a trip will teach how to be patient. After all, it is useful when you are waiting for a car or meet unusual people, etc. Also, often it is necessary to be in different weather conditions: when you stand in the rain, freeze or “melt” from the heat. In addition, mosquitoes and other harmful insects can test your nerves.
But the most important thing is that you learn to be patient with each other. And when people are hungry nerves manifest even more: they can be at the limit and any word of a travel companion is perceived more sharply. We often give in to emotions but not to common sense. After all, sometimes it’s so hard to endure and keep silent on a remark or hold back and don’t say something stinging in response. So patience is perhaps the most important in traveling.
- Accept partner’s shortcomings
If your travel buddy doesn’t like to fly by plane or, for example, becomes nervous and generally unbearable, learn not to pay attention to it and don’t be angry. Just take it as it is and relax. Who among us is not without sin in this regard?
When you get to know your companion (your girlfriend), it turns out that you don’t like something in her, some habits already seem boring for you. So what to do in such a situation? Try to accept a person as she is and respect her personality. It will come in handy for a positive spirit.
- Respect personal space of each other
After a few days when you spend time inseparable, it is possible that one of you will have a desire to be alone. This can manifest in a refusal to go on the beach or for an evening walk, in the desire to lie in bed with a book all day, etc. This is a quite normal desire. Leave a woman alone for some time. Then she will be grateful to you and will happily spend the rest of vacation with you.
- Don’t try to get everything at once
The problem of many traveling couples is that they try to catch everything in one day: they want to go on the beach and in the museum, and on shopping. It is just unreal! And if you are tired, then you will be really angry because of some nonsense and quarrel.
- Remain positive
Try to always be positive. This is easier to do when you travel because there are many funny situations. If you are in a difficult situation, don’t be sad. Think about it, perhaps it is given to you in order to teach or protect you from something.
- Have fun, of course!
You are on vacation and travel together! So have fun and let the fun be a priority! Get rid of sad thoughts! Humor and smile treat everything! Remember the funny situations in a difficult time and make fun out of difficulties.
