With a new year comes new goals, new traditions, and new resolutions! New Year’s Resolutions are great individually however, they are even greater when you set them with the one you love. We’ve created a top ten list of resolutions to set this year; one’s that you can easily stick with for they year to come.
Create A “No Phone Zone”
Disconnect for a couple hours, as often as you can. Turn off your phones and other devices, light some candles and sit down for some good old-fashioned conversation.
Host A Dinner
Once a month, invite friends and family over for dinner. This is a great opportunity to see loved ones and spend some time socializing in a warm atmosphere.
Giving back is a great way to get closer, volunteer your time at a local food pantry, or join one of the many Chicagoland charities to help those in need.
Schedule Girls/Guys Night Out
Don’t lose sight of who you were before you tied the knot, make sure that you each take a night out once a month to just hang out with your close friends!
Try Something New
Sit down as a couple and make a list of the things you’ve never done that you’d like to try, this “bucket list” is a great way to get to know each other better and inspire some memorable moments together.
Once a day, take a moment to thank your spouse or give them a compliment. This resolution costs you absolutely nothing but, can make a million dollar impact!
Date Nights Once A Month
Just like your nights out with friends, dates are a great way to connect. Get dressed up and go dancing, visit a museum, or take in a sporting event. We also love the idea of trying 5 new restaurants a year! Regardless, dates will reignite that spark you had when you first met!
Choose something to save for over the next year, whether its a new home or vehicle, a baby or a getaway start collecting your loose change and watch it grow together.
Begin Your Day Together
Get up a little earlier at least twice a week, start your day together over coffee or breakfast before your work responsibilities take over.
Work As A Team
Take the time out to help your spouse with chores at least once a week. The extra help will make chores less daunting and allow you to spend some quality time together.
