Have You Made Your Relationship Resolutions
As the end of the year is approaching fast and most often people make resolutions, it wouldn’t hurt if you make some relationship resolutions for the next year as well.
There are so many ways to improve your relationship, and hopefully, these kind of relationship resolutions can work for you too.
Learn How To Play Together
By doing all sorts of activities together, couples get bonded.
Whether it is as rock climbing or riding a bicycle, such experiences increase the sense of closeness and relationship satisfaction.
As long as you are doing things together, you will experience sharing and mutual satisfaction whatsoever.
You know the old saying : “Couples that play together, stay together”
Develop A Sense Of Humor
Having a great deal of humor in a relationship is key to its longevity.
Couples can benefit from it so much, that usually conflict situations may end up in a big laughter after all.
Humor is stress relieving, it diffuses tension, allowing people to bring up topics that would be difficult to discuss otherwise.
Crack more jokes and you’ll be fine.
Get that sense of humor going!
Learn How To Listen
Not everybody knows how to be a good listener, but don’t worry. You can still learn it.
It is a skill that you need to improve in time, and believe us, if your partner see that you’ve learned to listen, you’ll have better communication whatsoever.
Try to understand and always remember another person’s message, and then respond accordingly to that message in an appropriate and effective way.
It’s maybe tougher than it sounds, but since listening is a skill, it can be improved ONLY through practice.
Say “I Love You” More Often
The most magical three letter word.
I LOVE YOU!
Who wouldn’t like to hear it more often?
The best of relationship resolutions by far!
Find Your Faith
There are times when you will lose your faith on your life path, but you really have to try to find it deep within you. It still resides there.
People are losing it over so many different things, they often forgot who they are. If you have faith in yourself and life in general, it is most likely you’ll have to find your faith in a true and meaningful relationship as well.
It isn’t so hard – you just need to open your heart a little bit more.
Faith will silently fill your heart and soul.
And you’ll just KNOW IT!
Forget The Cell Occasionally
Communication technology is crucial these days for maintaining social relationships, but it can interfere with intimate ones.
Do you know that staring all the time at your cell phone while you’re with the person you love, may ruin your relationship?
Simply lay down your phone on the table while talking to your partner.
If you don’t do that, its visible presence can send a message to your partner that your attention could be diverted at any moment.
You wouldn’t like that to happen, would you?
It is by far the toughest thing in the world.
Learning how to forgive.
In close relationships, we sometimes hurt each other, intentionally or accidentally, and sometimes to forgive can be so difficult.
But it’s achievable.
You just need to feel it in your heart and to find inner strength to forgive.
Develop Better Communication Skills
Always try to talk about the strengths of your relationship.
Try to honestly express resentments you’ve been holding on for so long, and do it in a way that allows your partner to hear them.
Instead of avoiding conflict, create a constructive way to engage and resolve problems as a team.
Create “We Time”
Don’t forget your mutual beginnings, how funny it was and full of joy, until you got kids and other obligations interfere.
Create some “sacred time” for yourselves. You really need it to rejuvenate your love and passion all over again.
Have dates as you used to when you were just starting as a couple.
It is so much fun and it will bring back some good memories!
Create Love Gestures
Nothing can bring a smile upon your face as a good gesture can.
Kiss each other every time you leave and every time you come home.
Call each other or text love messages during the day.
And don’t forget to cuddle every night before bed – you’ll sleep much better
Try New Things Together
Develop new hobbies in which you can participate together. This kind of bonding is irreplaceable.
It doesn’t matter if you go for ice skating, skiing, running, seeing a new museum, painting, or you have a dance class.
Be as creative as possible and create memories together.
It will spark your relationship even more.
Don’t Forget To Laugh
This is the most important thing to remember. To laugh.
Laugh out loud and in every situations that requires it. Laughing will not only improve your health and well being, but your relationship too.
When creating your New Year relationship resolutions, don’t forget to get as creative as possible. Every little thing you add as a change, will refresh and strengthen your relationship even more.
