New Year’s Resolutions For Couples To Make Together

Most people who make their goals and aspirations for a new year known do so as individuals. That makes sense – it’s all about personal growth and achievements, so of course it’s all about you. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have objectives when you’re in a relationship too. Here are some New Year’s resolutions for couples to aim for this year.

We’ll put down our phones and be present with one another more often. We’re all guilty of spending more time mindlessly scrolling down Instagram or laughing at TikTok videos than we do actually listening to our partners when we’re hanging out half the time. Enough is enough! One of the biggest and most important New Year’s resolutions couples should set is to put the phones away and actually give one another some undivided attention sometimes. It’ll make all the difference in your relationship.

We’ll make sex a priority. Life happens and sometimes physical intimacy takes a back seat when there are other things going on. That makes sense and it’s totally understandable, but it can’t go on forever. Commit to making sex a priority in your relationship. It doesn’t have to be every night or even every week, but it should be regular enough that you feel fulfilled and connected with your partner in this way.

We’ll make the effort to keep our relationship thriving. This is another of those great New Year’s resolutions for couples to strive for. Relationships do take work, especially when they’re long-term relationships. Both people need to put in the effort to ensure conflict is resolved, your partner feels appreciated, and things are going well. Be on the same page about putting in the work to stay happy and healthy and commit to that together.

We’ll try new things together. Everyone’s life gets a little routine – you can’t stay in the honeymoon phase forever. However, that doesn’t mean things have to get stale or complacent. If you find that you haven’t done anything new or exciting in as long as you can remember, maybe it’s time to change things up. Plan a trip to a city you’ve never visited, go on a hike when the weather is nice, try a new restaurant, whatever sounds fun and is outside the box.

We’ll continue to work on ourselves as individuals. This might be one of your New Year’s resolutions already, but it should also be considered one for couples. You can’t be a great partner if you’re not a whole, happy individual. Make sure you’re still working on yourselves outside of the relationship so that when you’re in it, things will be even better.
