Going away together? 7 steps to holiday heaven!

Stay positive


Why? To avoid conflict and stop little niggles from escalating into proverbial mountains. Ironically, holidays cause a lot of stress: after a tiring journey, you arrive in a foreign place, your sleep patterns and diet can be all over the place, and if you're the adventurous kind you may challenge yourselves physically.

"If you're getting off the beaten track and going somewhere completely alien, it can make anxieties worse and encourage aggressive behaviour", says our expert.

How? "Complement him on his good qualities and don't criticize. If something goes bottoms up, work through it together. Turn problems into experiences, take them in your stride and put them into perspective," says our love coach. If your plane gets delayed by four hours, it could be a once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore a city you'd never otherwise get to see. If he forgets to pack your bikini, turn it into an excuse to shop for a new one. Little hiccups can turn into real adventures and make funny memories. And whatever you do, don't lay the blame at his feet if things go wrong.
