With the New Year coming in, many people begin formulating their resolutions for the year that is to come. Resolutions, in this sense, are goals that you hope to achieve or live by in the New Year. It is often a way to get yourself to grow or become a better version of yourself. And this same notion can be applied as a couple. If you are in a relationship, it may be worth considering having some joint resolutions together in unison. Here are some suggestions of some goals that you and your significant other may want to set together for the New Year.

1. To Communicate More

Some people have issues communicating effectively. Even those who would be considered great communicators may falter a bit over time. Setting this goal together shows your partner that communication is important to you and that you want to try to improve things further. And the mere idea of setting resolutions together, is an indicator that you and your partner may actually allow this resolution to come to fruition.

2. To Trust More

Though some of us have been in a relationship for an extended period of time, some of us still hide our insecurities, worries, or things about us from our partner. It is important to share some of these things with your partner, so they could like you for you, and even provide support for you in dealing with said things. Of course, you should share things when you are ready, but hopefully setting this resolution jointly can nudge you both in the right direction.

3. To Learn More

No one should stop learning, because no one knows everything. And it is important to constantly acquire knowledge and skills, so that life feels fresh and innovating. Wanting to do this as a couple gives you both the opportunity to grow individually and simultaneously together.

4. To Feel More

A lot of us try to hide our feelings or avoid circumstances that may provoke particular emotions. But, it is important to feel things. With positive emotions, we can let ourselves feel in a way that provides thrill and joyfulness frequently. With negative emotions, we can let ourselves feel in a way that makes us stronger beings later on. Sometimes we have to let go and feel, in order to grow and become more resilient.

5. To Laugh More

Laughter is truly the best medicine. No one really goes wrong with laughing. Being able to laugh often and freely, can be cathartic through the mundane or busy times in life. As a couple laughing with each other, and maybe even at each other sometimes, can make you enjoy each other's company more. Everyone likes a good joke every once in a while, or likes to watch a comedy now and then, so try to do it more if you can. Watch more funny things or play more funny games, and just let yourselves laugh. Everyday there should be an opportunity to laugh a bit. Who Knows? Maybe laughing more can lead to you loving more in the New Year.
