Building Stronger Bonds With Adventure Travel

Pile of smartphonesYou spend months planning and daydreaming about the perfect vacation, imagining smiling children, and lots of hugs and tons of laughter; but how can you ensure that you actually end up with family bonding instead of bickering over cell phone use or hogging the bathroom? An adventure vacation in Costa Rica could be just the answer you’re looking for! Adventure vacations are not only exciting, but they have the ability to bring families together like never before.

Unplug For A Moment
It’ll be pretty difficult to work during an adventure vacation to Costa Rica Rios! You’re going to be having way too much fun in the great outdoors and besides, it’s hard to e-mail your boss while dangling from a zip line! When you plan a vacation with your family you are making a commitment to spend time with them. During your adventure vacation make sure you actually unplug and allow yourself to spend quality time together enjoying the activities and sharing the amazing scenery. Remind your teenagers that all the text messages they are missing will be there when they return, and bring along only digital devices you can use to document your amazing vacation!

Cooperation and Teamwork Abound

Your family will spend a lot of time working together to achieve common goals. Family bonds are strengthened when everyone’s voices are heard, everyone’s work is appreciated and the end result is fulfilling and worthwhile. While you will also have plenty of time for relaxation and sight-seeing – the challenges that await you will really make this vacation memorable.

Healthy Competition and Physical Activity Builds Confidence
As an added bonus, you’ll enjoy seeing your family member’s confidence soar as they try new things, take on new challenges and conquer fears. Outdoor physical activity gets the blood flowing, increases endorphins (which make us happier) and reverses the effects of stress on the body. The memories you build together through these adventures will be thought about and talked about well into your children’s adulthood. At first glance some of the activities will be a bit outside your comfort zone, even if you are an athletic family, but once you’ve conquered each one the feeling of accomplishment will be overwhelmingly positive!

More Than A Week Away From It All

In this down-sized economy, companies are running leaner and offering new employees less vacation benefits. In turn, as our work schedules get more demanding and e-tools make us more likely to be “plugged in” to work 24/7, our stress levels are through the roof!

We are living in a “time is money” generation and have lost sight of why we really need time away from the office. A vacation isn’t just a job perk, it is medicine for the body, mind and soul that cleanses us from stress and increases our productivity in the long run. Thinking that we have to much to do and are too needed at the office keeps us from the main event in our lives – living!

Think of it this way, your job is a means to an end. The goal of working should be to fund your perfect life. Life is all about experience and adventure, that’s why getting away from it all by taking a Costa Rica Adventure Vacation can help enhance your life in ways you never even thought of before. Did you know that when Forbes Magazine polled 400 of the richest business people in the US, that they weren’t really any happier than the average American? That’s because status and money doesn’t bring you life satisfaction. Experience, adventure and relationships with family do.

Stress and anxiety are bigger risk factors for heart attacks than hamburgers and genetics combined. Did you know that people who take an annual vacation of one week or more at a time are significantly less likely to have heart attacks? Not only can a vacation help your heart, but it can improve your sleep habits and help clear your mind so that you are super productive when you return!

For families the benefits of a Costa Rica Adventure Vacation are double! Spending one to two weeks of quality time (that would be time uninterrupted with cell phone calls and e-mails) with your children helps them to become more resilient adults with higher self-esteem. Husbands and wives, parents and children and even siblings need that extra stress-free time to bond and build relationships. So this year, try to plan your work schedule around your vacation time and not the other way around!
