New Year’s resolutions take on a whole new meaning when you go from a “me” to a “we.” Sure, you can have some personalized goals for the new year, but making tandem resolutions are a benchmark for your relationship and a sure way to make sure you’re both on the same page all year long. Make 2016 your strongest year yet with some of these ideas for both of you to achieve together.
Cook Healthy Meals
Together of course. Instead of uniting over a take out menu, make healthy choices and share the legwork in the kitchen. Make good use of all that cookware you registered for but haven’t had the time to take out of the box.
Make the Most of Your Gym Membership
The hardest part about working out is actually going to the gym. While you don’t have to do your squats in unison, help each other get out the door by setting aside time that works for you both to stay in shape all year long.
Carve out some time for each other, despite how crazy schedules get throughout the year. Date Night can mean anything from movies on the couch to trying that fancy new restaurant down the street.
Save, Save, Save
Saving up for your future together is definitely the least fun of our New Year’s resolutions, but certainly the most important. No matter how much money you’re bringing in, try to have honest conversations about your budgets for the year and make a system to keep each other in line. Trust us, your bank account will thank you both, and your future vacation will be well worth it.
