Life changing decisions made whilst on Vacation.
Our life altering decision made whilst on holiday 16yrs ago was to start a family. Being in our early 30’s it was a now or never moment, 2 teenagers later I’m not convinced it was the right decision but I’m sure with therapy we will all pull through.
A break from the normal means couples get the chance to discuss what direction they want to take their lives. More than 50% of Life changing decisions are made whilst relaxing on vacation proving that taking a break can change your life.
Nearly 40% of us discuss our love life and how to spice it up when we get home, this rises to 75% if you are below 30 (no surprises there).
Most admit that a get-away can make or break a relationship
Reasons for taking a break:
- Re-ignite love life
- Re-acquainted with your partner
- Escape from work/recharge the batteries
- Get away from the family and the daily grind
- Work/life balance
- Getting fitter/healthier
- Commit to finding a new job
Nearly 30% of us returning from a break actually decide to take action on changing their job. So employers beware your staff may come back with more than a suntan.
Vacations/holidays (depending on which side of the pond you are on) are not just about the sun, sand, and sex (I wish). We use it to plan improvements in our day-to-day lives.
This is the time we get to talk to our partners about our worries and aspects of their lives they are not happy with. Once away from the 9 to 5 we feel that we can open up and be honest (to a point) about how we really feel.
Are you unhappy with your life? Perhaps you should take a vacation!
