Start Some New Traditions With the Spouse This Year
Unique Things that Mean Something to Your Relationship
Where did you have your first date? What was the first movie you went to see together? These little things are great foundations for new traditions together. Take a day out of the year to relive your first date and ignite that fresh romance again. Buy and watch that first movie together to spark intimacy in your relationship. There are tons of things that are unique to you as a couple. Find interesting ways to celebrate those little things in your relationship.
Pick Up a Cause or Hobby
Pick a Saturday out of the month and find something to help out the community. You can pick a cause that you are both passionate about, and work together in helping to promote it. You may not have a Saturday available each month to support a cause, but you can pick up a hobby that you can work on together. Choose something that you both like and start collecting it together. The great thing about this is that you don’t have to be together to build the collection. You can stop by the local antique shop on the way to work, and he can stop by a place like Collectors Corner Coins online during his lunch hour. You hobby is growing, and even though you may not be together, the two of you are strengthening your relationship too.
Pick a Place, Any Place and Go
Schedule a yearly vacation where the two of you will get away, turn off the technology and spend some much-needed quality time together. Whether you leave the country, go on a cruise, or simply travel a few states away, you need at least a week to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and reignite a deeper passion in your relationship.
It’s important that you make time for new traditions together this new year. You must consistently work at your relationship if you want to keep it fresh and strong. It doesn’t have to be extravagant. The little things add up and form a foundation for a strong, long-lasting relationship.
