Most of us live busy, chaotic lives. And couples preparing to get married experience this on a heightened emotional level. Fast-forward to the honeymoon. Seaside honeymoons may just be the first step in setting the tone for married life. Maintaining romance in a relationship after so many decisions have just been made, and so many other people’s needs and feelings required consideration puts a lot of strain on even the strongest of bonds.
Take me away…
A few of you may remember your mom quoting the commercial that played in the 70s & 80s: “Calgon take me away”. As tension rises, the actress utters the slogan, and the next scene shows her relaxing in a bubble bath. Well, since ancient times, humans have assigned healing, transformational properties to water. And in a spiritual context, it symbolizes rebirth, spiritual cleansing and salvation.
It’s no wonder when we look at a river, the sea, or even powerful waterfalls (like Niagara, Iguazu in Brazil), our minds often can clear. The sparkling reflection (the visual input is simplified) and sound (far more simple than the sound of voices or the sound of music or the sound of a city) can have a transcendental effect on us. The hues of the color turquoise are refreshing, feminine, calming. The color turquoise has healing properties that affect the mind and the body. The ideal desired effect of seaside honeymoons.
Combine tranquil waters with bathing suits (or skinny dipping in secluded hideaways) and sun. Snorkeling and paddleboarding. Warm weather and cocktails. You have the perfect recipe for love. Exactly what so many honeymooners seek when planning their idyllic getaways.
