Don't Let Jealousy Ruin Your Summer Get-Away
Leave jealousy behind so that you & your partner can enjoy your vacation together!

Before you leave on your vacation, talk with your partner about what you each expect and what you each want to do. He might want to play golf and you may prefer to read a novel on the beach. She may want to take a back-country hike and you just want to catch up on your sleep or maybe hit the hotel's hot tub.

There's time for individual activities AND for things you two could do together. Something as simple as dinner at a quiet restaurant could be a place for re-connecting and re-igniting spark in your relationship.

It can be a drag to plan out every second of every moment-- especially when you're on vacation. Don't over-think this. Just be sure that you know what you want from this get-away and that you honor what your partner wants.

If your jealous mind declares that your partner's wish for some alone time while on vacation is a rejection of you, notice what you're thinking and stop! Make room for the possibility that his or her yearning for time alone isn't about you AND that there are other times during your vacation that you two can connect.

Remind yourself that you don't have to take your jealousy with you on vacation. In fact, this get-away can be the perfect time to form some new and jealousy-free habits and create some fabulous memories with your partner too.
