According to the American Psychological Association and American Institute of Stress, approximately 48% of people say that stress has a negative effect on their personal lives, and 54% of people say that stress can cause them to fight with the people that are closest to them. One of the easiest ways to reduce stress, and protect the relationship between you and your partner, is to consider vacation resorts.
Couples resorts are a popular destination for couples looking to unwind and spend some quality time together. Whether you go to beach resorts or all inclusive resorts, there are some locations around the world that are just a little bit better than others at helping you to de-stress.
For example, you may want to consider a holiday in Zanzibar, which is the quintessential tropical retreat, and home to many luxury resorts and couples resorts. Zanzibar is an archipelago, off the coast of Tanzania and in the Indian Ocean. It has beaches, cultural and historical sites, and that untouched quality that so many vacationers look for in their holiday destinations.
Even if 24/7 relaxation is not your goal, Zanzibar is still an excellent choice. You can take a visit to the Mtoni Palace Ruins, which holds concerts and dinners several nights a week, or visit Stone Town which is a civic and cultural center in Zanzibar. If you want a more natural and nature-oriented experience then consider the Zanzibar Butterfly Center, Kiwengwa Caves, or the Nungwi Natural Aquarium. Of course, the archipelago has no shortage of beaches, and so it is perfectly acceptable to lie by the bright blue waters of the Indian Ocean all day.
Elevated stress levels have been linked to such health risks as heart disease, diabetes, depression, asthma, obesity, and gastrointestinal problems. When looking for couples resorts in Zanzibar, you can think of the trip as an investment in your own personal health, as well as an investment in the health of your relationship.
