I know New Year’s resolutions are difficult to keep but we need just try to do this. Why not to work on your relationship and make New Year’s resolutions with your partner? If you don’t know what resolutions to make, don’t worry, I’ve got a list of 8 New Year’s resolutions every couple should make for 2014 to make it a wonderful year for your relationship!
1. Work on communication
Communication is one of the most important things in any relationship and it definitely should be a key in your relationship. If you are having a hard time communicating with your partner, it could be a time for both of you to work on that communication. In addition, a good communication may help your relationship in the long run.
2. Spend more time with your partner
This is probably one of the biggest New Year’s resolutions you should make this year. Finding more free time for your relationship is really hard but it’s very important. Whether you have the busy schedules or you are busy with your kids, make sure to find some time to spend with your partner. Trust me, it will make all of the difference in your relationship!
3. Try not to fight
I agree that fighting happens in every relationship, but it doesn’t mean that you should fight about everything. There must be a convincing reason for fighting. That’s why you and your partner should learn ways not to fight by every trifle. In 2014, try to discuss things instead of fighting them out.
4. Praise, compliment and admire
I can honestly say that I don’t compliment and praise enough. That’s why it’s my main New Year’s resolution for next year. If you’re like me don’t praise, compliment and admire your partner you should learn how to do this. In fact, every couple should compliment each other and celebrate small wins together. Your relationship must be fun and you need always praise each other!
5. Say “I love you” more often
This is another important New Year’s resolution! If you have been in a relationship for a long time, it’s not a reason to stop saying your partner that you love him/her. So next year make a New Year’s resolution and say each other “I love you” more often. It’s a perfect way to let your partner know that you still love him/her. It will definitely make the large difference in your relationship!
6. Stay present
If you have been in a relationship for a long time, it’s really difficult to stay present and sometimes it’s hard not to drift away. So if you find yourself being distant with your partner, it’s time to make the New Year’s resolution that both of you stay present this year. Besides, it is not a healthy relationship if you’re constantly feeling alone and distant, right?
7. Make time to make love
That is another New Year’s resolution every couple should make! Sex doesn’t have to be scheduled, but you should always make time for it. Why not to make love time a priority this year? It will help you feel more connected to your partner and it’s also an awesome stress reliever!
8. Do good things for one another
It can be bringing your partner a breakfast in bed or simply washing a car, just make sure that you are doing good things for your partner. It also means that your partner should also be doing good things for you. Doing some casual acts of kindness for each other is a great thing, especially if you have been together for a long time!
