7 New Year’s Resolutions for Couples

As the holiday season comes to a close, and we’re faced with several months of quiet solitude, there’s no better time to put some of your New Year’s resolutions to work. No matter who you are, or what kind of relationship you’re in, there’s always room for improvement, and today we’re looking at the Top 7 New Year’s Resolutions that would be beneficial to any couple.

1. Love More

I dare say that no matter how much love you are currently giving and receiving at this very moment, you could probably make room for a little more. Love is the base of which supports every couples faithfulness, health, and strength. What’s more, research suggests that the more love we give, the more love we will receive, simply by promoting the release of the feel good chemical, oxytocin, each time we smile, hug, or gently lay our hand on someone’s shoulder. It only takes one second, but the rewards are infinite!

2. Kiss More

It is sometimes difficult to communicate across the borders of love, but despite whatever issues you may be having with your partner, one thing you can almost never do wrong is a true, heartfelt, and passionate kiss. Kissing can stop arguments, create pair bonding, and leave a partner wanting more (much more). Somewhere around a quarter of all couples are dissatisfied with their sex lives, but rather than fretting over the act of sex itself, why not focus one one of its greatest preludes… the kiss!

3. Reduce Hurtful Habits

As much as we need to focus on the good in our relationships, sometimes we need to look at some of the bad, such as our bad habits. Criticizing, lying, blaming, threatening, and bribing can become relationship deal breakers if taken to the extreme. Take some time this new year to think about your hurtful habits, and about how reducing them could help your relationship function better. It doesn’t take much effort to make a big impact when you’re honest with yourself about your greatest faults.

4. Learn How to Argue

If arguing were easy, we’d all be good at it. It turns out that there is actually an etiquette to effective arguing, and if you are not currently aware of these rules, you could be doing more harm than good. A few important points to remember, are to start and end every disagreement on a positive note, use the word “I” rather than “you”, and listen and understand what your partner is saying (ask questions if necessary). You must also realize that there is never a winner to these things, but only a compromise between what each of you wants.

5. Increase Your Intimacies, Beyond Sex

Sex is on everybody’s radar these days. Everywhere you turn there is advice on how to turn up the heat in the bedroom, light the fire under a boring partner, or turn your whole relationship around with three new sex positions. Sex is a great desert, and what I mean by that is that there are a number of other intimacies that should be the meat and potatoes of your relationship, including emotional/spiritual connection, trust, understanding, vulnerability, apathy, and familiarity. Don’t settle for anything less.

6. Take the Necessary Steps to Affair Proof Your Relationship

While an affair is never the fault of the victim, there is, nevertheless, value in taking stock in a good offense with your current relationship. The honest truth is that nobody is completely immune to temptation. If you want to affair proof your relationship, you need to take the same precautionary actions as you would for any other tragedy you wish to avoid. A few tips are to wear your wedding band, concentrate on the good in the relationship, and do something nice for your partner at least once a day.

7. Don’t Let Insecurity Inhibit Love

In today’s society, it seems that everybody is focused on the concept of right versus wrong. If we are not doing it right (good), then we’d rather not be doing it at all. We strive to run our life as a battle plan, sending our troops into the field as winners, only to retreat when their efforts aren’t completely successful. Rather than withdrawing from your partner when your efforts aren’t producing your desired results, decline the need to be right, admit that you don’t know what you’re doing, and ask your partner what they need from you. In a sense, let your fear of loving wrong, be your motivation and guide to loving right!

    Hi,
    These are all good tips…. I think # 4 is VERY important…..learn how to argue constructively. I’ve seen couples just rip into an arguement in the heat of anger and really do damage to the relationship.

    Agree beforehand, that, at times, you will disagree, ( such is human nature as we are all individuals),……..but even after you have both finished debating the topic in a respectful manner,agree to put it to rest and still be friends.

    Try to set up some simple debate rules, such as when and where……and never debate a topic in anger if possible.
    I hate to use the word ” argue “…….rather agree to ” debate ” the topic.

    Blessed Be )O(
