Wedding celebrations are nothing short of amazing. All brides go the extra mile to look their best and to make their guests feel great. However, wedding preparations are always stressful, so the happy couples end up exhausted and longing for a vacation to recharge their batteries. However, instead of relaxing, most of them choose to go on an exhausting honeymoon. They usually choose a romantic place, without realizing tourist destinations aren’t meant to help them relax after the stressful wedding preparation and after the emotions of the big day.
Going to a yoga retreat could be a much wiser option. Yoga is an activity that enables you to focus on your body and to forget about your mundane worries. When doing yoga, you can forget about all things that bother and stress you in your day to day life. All you care about is to do the downward facing dog the proper way while counting your breaths to make sure you maintain the pose long enough to feel its positive effects. This type of activity is the best remedy against stress accumulations. Even if you don’t know much about it, you should talk to your future spouse, and agree to give up the traditional honeymoon trip to Venice, Italy or to Paris, France, in favor of spending one or two weeks in a yoga retreat in the mountains or on the beach.
Chances are that both of you are going to relax and find an effective stress relief. Besides, since you’ll need to spend a lot of time in silence, and focus on your inner self, you’ll have a chance to think about the big step you’ve just taken and about its meaning. The married life is different than anything else before. Even if you are already used to live together, you’ll still feel the pressure of the marriage certificate binding you into a lifelong contract.
How many of us have the power to take a marriage to the end of time? The divorce rates are skyrocketing, as people aren’t willing to assume the problems of their life partner. They prefer to turn their back and to run away, in search for happiness, whatever it may mean to them. Some of them don’t even know how to define happiness. They only know they want the other person to make them happy. In most cases, the result is a bitter divorce. In other cases, the partners decide to stay together in a miserable life, for the sake of their children.
A yoga retreat after the wedding day could be the perfect opportunity to reflect all these things and to all unhappy couples that have divorced shortly after they’ve vowed eternal love and unconditional support to each other. Your marriage may resist, but why not meditate in peace to all these things before stepping together in your new life as a family? When children will come, you’ll barely find time to sleep, leave alone meditating or going to yoga retreats.
