1. The thrill of a new adventure scientifically increases marital satisfaction
Dinners and movies with your partner are enchanting as a first date, but they can become downright boring when done for the umpteenth time 2 years later. However, according to Dr. Patricia Thompson on MindBodyGreen, A research study showed that couples who engaged in activities they described as “exciting” reported more marital satisfaction than those who shared experiences they described as “pleasant.” In addition, novel activities flood the brain’s reward circuits, creating an experience that brings you both more pleasure. So, to give your relationship a boost, book your flights today.
2. Retreats unleash your creativity
Most people who check-in at Xinalani are usually stressed you. They carry a tense vibe that they bring from a hectic city life. We designed an experience in a wild environment that takes guests on the edge of their comfort zone. After a couple of days, the transformation occurs: smiles are back, bodies are relaxed, metabolisms are tuned up, skins are radiant. It’s a quick shift back to healthy.
And then there is space for positive stuff to happen. Relaxation brings out couples connectivity, wellness gives them a clearer outlook on life, yoga tones their bodies, surf freshen up their thoughts, meditation connects them back to their breath. They can think of the issues they left back home and sort them out with a renewed mindset. Xinalani facilitates retreats for couples to find solutions to get the lifestyle they want, to focus on their health, to release their need for creative expression.
3. Traveling builds bullet proof bonds
Travels are all about expansion, and the joy you share during your travels strengthens your bonds in no time! Sharing a meaningful history with someone builds a solid relationship. Fun adventures like yoga retreats on the beach in Mexico, will leave beautiful memories only you two will hold forever as a couple! Later you will say, “Remember our trip to…?”.
Traveling sometimes also means dealing with unexpected hassle: late flights, lost luggage, bad weather, sickness, what have you. Overcoming obstacles and turning annoying situations over will develop that important sense of teamwork that will rely on the rest of your life as a couple.
At Xinalani, we offer a range of challenging outdoor activities that require you to tap into your inner strength to overcome your fears. Meditation classes and Temazcal rituals open transformational opportunities for your mind, body and soul. If you want to improve your relationship, make sure you do that together. People grow when they go through a challenge as a couple.
4. Going away together means increased intimacy and better sex
Couples that are able to trustfully share personal feelings more often describe their relationships as “deeper” and “more rewarding”. Unleash your relationship’s growth: open up your soul and express your partner gratitude and unconditional kindness, and empathy.
Also, a few couples anonymously confessed having the best sex of their lives at Xinalani. The sound of the waves, the murmur of the jungle, the dim lighting, the moon and the stars, and probably the scarceness of distractions… all of this takes couples back towards sensuality and pleasure.
