Experiencing a balloon flight with someone special comes with many benefits for your relationship.

Did you know? Research has shown that one of the major reasons why relationships fall apart is because couples do not spend enough quality time together. They do not make time for each other.

As mentioned above, there are many benefits for your relationship when you experience something special with them (like a balloon flight for example). Some of these benefits include:

  • Better emotional health or well-being
  • Lasting connections (bonding time)
  • Reduced stress levels (which leads to less fighting and tense situations)
  • Learning more about your someone special
  • Creating happy memories to look back on

Now, you may ask, “Where am I supposed to find time for quality time between work, kids, and family commitments?” This is a very real problem couples are facing today. There are so many demands on their time and their attention that they end up drifting away from the one person who can help to keep them sane. Here are a few ideas:

  • Set aside about 10 minutes each morning before you both rush off to work to chat about your days. Do the same thing in the evening (you can do about 15-20 minutes in the evening) and catch up with each other. Remember to make eye contact with each other!
  • You can keep the conversation flowing throughout the day with voice notes, texts or a quick lunchtime call. Nothing says “You’re special to me” like a text that lets you know they are thinking of you.
  • Go on a vacation together. If you have kids, they will survive without mom and dad for a long weekend or one week (as will the grandparents). Give yourselves the gift of time.
  • Planning is key. When you lead super busy lives, finding the time to do something special together is often the most difficult part. When you plan ahead, you are likely to find time you can spend together. And remember to prioritise your time together. No cancelling on each other (emergencies aside)!
  • Speaking of time… Keep date night alive! And boy oh boy, do we have a great idea for you!
