Happy New Year! The turn of a new year, new month, or even a new day, can bring a spark of new hope and motivation! As you are getting into the new year and planning on all the ways you will be a better you, I want to remind you of how you and your partner can set goals for your relationship!
Couples who take the time to share how they will support each other in individual goals and set goals for themselves as a couple, are more likely to experience a higher level of relationship satisfaction. Setting long term goals together also shares a sense of commitment and security in the relationship.
Plus, I should also add that you are much more likely to reach goals with other people (partner included) cheering you on.
Here are some questions for you both to consider during your conversation:
Remember that the way only way you will reach the goals you have set for yourselves above, is to have a plan of action to carry the goals out.
If you are serious of making these goals become a reality, I have a step by step online course designed for couples to reach their goals together. This online course has downloadable couple worksheets and a video for you both to follow along. The worksheets are designed for you both to see how you differ and overlap, so that you know how to provide the support your partner needs. This online course is called Two Souls One Goal. If you have access to the Relationship Wellness Course – Bundle, then this class is already included for FREE.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I work with individuals and couples to obtain clarity in the goals they set together. Whether this process is done individually with guidance from my online course or in the therapy room, couples can increase their sense of connection, passion, and communication. Start off 2020 by investing in your relationship!
