If you want to start the new year off right, it’s time to make sure your relationship is in good shape. Luckily, there are a few simple things you can do with your partner between now and the end of the year, so you can start 2021 off strong.
Pick your goals
One thing you should do with your partner between now and January 1 is to take time to review your year together. Find a quiet time in the middle of all the holiday craziness and take turns completing this sentence: “Remember when we..“
Share the memories that stand out to you. You can even look through the photos you took over the past year and reminisce about all the fun activities, trips, and moments you shared together.
Include Stress Relieving Activities To Your Busy Routine
No one wants to enter into the New Year exhausted and overwhelmed, and only you can prevent that from happening. Some good ways of stress relieving activities you can do together include giving each other massages, taking a walk together, and playing a game. If your partner would rather relax alone, that’s OK too.
Take out some time to do something you both enjoy doing together.
If you’re struggling to find time to spend together, schedule time for it. Put it on your calendar, mark it as important, and stick to it. One thing a couple can do to stay on track and start the new year off right is to intentionally schedule time together doing things you enjoy.
Forgive Each Other
If you’ve got resentments or frustrations with your partner, this is a great time to release those.It’s better to recognize your feelings of resentment and let them out before it gets worse. Holding it in will do nothing for your relationship. Your partner can’t change if they don’t know that something is wrong. So airing out your feelings and then forgiving each other will help you start 2021 off right.
