New Year means a fresh start; a new year gives you a clean slate to start with and each one of us should take it as a chance to begin anew. Let the mistakes and regrets of past year stay where they belong (in the past) and take the New Year as an opportunity to grow and nurture.
The idea isn’t limited to your personal growth; it expands to your career and relationships as well. Whether you are going through a rough patch in your relationship or not, there is always space for improvement. Here are few New Year’s resolutions that you should take with your significant other.
Join a gym together
It is easy to resolve to be healthier but sticking to it is where most people fail. Finding motivation to workout regularly can be difficult especially if you are doing it alone. But if you resolve to get fit with your partner, everything can change. You can push each other to hit the gym daily and help each other at the gym to achieve your goals together.
Save more for vacations
Taking a vacation together can be great for your relationship; getting away from the humdrum of life in a place where you can relax and cherish each other’s company is blissful. But these vacations come at a cost.
Resolve to save more money to afford your dream vacation. Time is passing by and there will never be enough time or money to take a vacation, make it happen this year.
Develop your culinary skills
Being able to cook good food is an important skill to have. It will come handy in a long run, and cooking with your partner can be a great way to spend some quality time together. It will nurture your bond.
Quit a bad habit together
We all have bad habits and they might not necessarily include smoking or drinking. These bad habits affect our life and quitting them alone is a difficult feat. This New Year you can resolve with your significant other to help each other quit one bad habit. You can keep a check on their habits and they can do the same for you, it will make sure that there are minimum relapses.
Take up a new hobby together
While giving up bad habits is great, taking up a new hobby will turn out great too. If you feel that you are not spending as much time together as you used to, taking up a new hobby will ensure that you do something together regularly which will keep you connected. You will bond with each other and share the joy of learning as well.
Refrain from social media
Showing off your relationship on social media is something you shouldn’t be doing already. But if you do share your relationship on social media, you can resolve to refrain from it. Sharing your private life with the world gives you a false sense of validity and attaching the validity of your relationship to what others think about it is extremely unhealthy thing to do.
Have a life outside the relationship
Your relationship shouldn’t be the only thing in your life. You should be equally focused on other areas of your life like your career and your growth as an individual.
While it is great to have a thriving relationship, you should not completely depend on your partner for everything and have a life outside your relationship. Keep pursuing your dreams and goals that you were doing before you got into the relationship and don’t forget that you have a life of your own.
