Traveling is always good, and if it is with your loved one, it can be even better. It is a moment only for you both, leaving routine behind and with time to talk, visit new places and rest.
We talked to Maria Marta Ferreira - psychologist -, of Psicobela, and she says: "we should not miss opportunities to show the importance of the people we are with. Of the many ways to do it, "devoting time" to them and to the person we love is one of the most important ones". And a trip can be the perfect opportunity for that!
According to Maria Marta, our warmest desires can be also a place of difficulties if we are not prepared. Total attention is very rare nowadays, and maybe because of the lack of attention we do now allow the best things in life to happen, the ones present in our close environment are also the most vulnerable ones.So, the first step is "do not take it for granted"; have your relationships as priority. It may be with your parents, your kis, partners or friends.
To Maria Marta, nowadays, social media is often used to show affection, but sometimes "it is more for the outside world than for the inside of the relationship", that means that sometimes we tell the social media what we should say in private. A romantic trip may be a good idea! "Walking in a park or a special lunch can have new meanings when we have an action plan crowned by a special trip. They are always a good chance to turn the routine off and focus the person we love", so the psychologist telled us.
The specialist also warns: "a trip can begin a new cycle and end others, can be good to reconnect, but do not try to save something already lost slowly". For the winter days, a nice tip - "winter is a season good for thinking, carries inspiration for caring, winter clothing invites for hugs, gloves warm the hands for gentle touches and blue sky or rain fall can be an invitation to celebrate life".
