Relationship Goals To Set With Your Partner in 2023

#Stop criticizing

Start the year off right and give yourself a chance to switch to a more positive attitude. No one has a monopoly on complaining, and it is a good idea to stop and ask yourself – am I criticizing too much? Am I making my partner “pay” for my bad mood at work? Before you complain or criticize your spouse or a situation, pause – say something constructive or say nothing! You will save your breath, and in many cases, time! Be understanding that your partner also has bad days. So, instead of criticizing each other, spend quality time together and heal your emotions.

#Plan intimate moments more often

It is a classic, but the fact remains that making love and planning moments of sensuality represent the ultimate in intimacy. However, the weight of everyday life means that many prefer to turn their attention to a movie or a book rather than their other half when they find themselves in bed. Then we might find that all the magic of our relationship has disappeared. That is why you should strive to make time for each other and spend more time in the arms of your loved one.

#Really listen to each other

In the whirlwind of life, couples seem to participate in a relay race, sometimes combined with an obstacle course. We listen with half an ear while continuing to spin about a thousand different thoughts in our heads. Sometimes you have to stop to start again. Sit for a few minutes, away from the TV and screens, and take time to listen to your partner. You will be surprised by everything you hear.

#Put each other at the top of your priority list

Before other activities like dinners out with friends and cleaning the apartment, you need to take care of you as a couple. In the beginning of a relationship, everything is set aside to be with the person you love. Over the years, this reality sometimes changes to such an extent that there is no time left. It is important to rediscover your state of mind in the early days of the relationship and prioritize yourself as a couple every day. Organize weekly coffee walks, hiking adventures, delicious homemade dinners, or cinema dates together. Really make some time to spend with one another consistently, don’t make your other obligations a priority every day!

#Plan a trip

All couples, in order to stay united and happy, need little moments to be alone in each others company. Whatever your budget and family reality is, you can still plan a trip or at least a 24-hour mini getaway. Getting away from your routine and daily stressors can do a lot for your relationship. Spend quality time together doing your favorite activities and just enjoying each others company. So, think about where you can go and for how long. Mark it on your calendar and don’t let anything change.

Surely there is an activity that will please you both and that will allow you to have some quality time together.

However, to rediscover the essence of love, we need to reconnect with our roots and our true values. So, spend less time on your phone or in front of the TV. Don’t prioritize money over your happiness, and spend as much time in nature as possible!
