4. Be honest with each other
One of the major relationship resolutions you can take is to be honest with each other. When you are honest in your relationship, you tend to maintain transparency in your relationship. You do not hide anything from your partner and this really strengthens the bond of trust between you and your partner.
5. Focus on developing emotional intimacy
Physical intimacy is undoubtedly one of the most important aspects of any romantic relationship. But do you know that having an emotional intimacy is equally important for your relationship. When you have emotional intimacy in your relationship, you and your partner are able to understand each other’s thoughts, feelings, opinions and emotions in a better way.
6. Evolve into a supportive, caring and loving partner
This New Year, take a resolution to evolve into a better and supportive partner. Endeavour to supports your partner in every ups and downs. This is because when you extend your support to your partner, he/she feels loved and special. Care for your partner even during happy moments.
7. Listen more than you speak
There’s nothing wrong in expressing your thoughts, opinions and feelings to your partner. But what’s wrong is not listening to what your partner says. When you are in a relationship, you need to understand that having an open and two-way conversation is quite essential. At times, all that your partner would want is having someone who could listen to him/her. Instead of nodding blindly, you need to listen to what your partner wants to say.
8. Avoid fighting over little things
Often major fights and conflicts in any relationship are resultant for numerous unnecessary small fights. So what’s the point in fighting like kids over every little thing? Remember, you are in a relationship and not in a competition where you need to fight.
Taking relationship resolutions on New Year and working on the same can actually help you in strengthening your relationship. Doing these things will help you and your partner in working over your relationship and bringing back the lost spark.
