This month’s Ask Coach Kathy question is about New Year’s Resolutions.
Do you believe in New Year’s resolutions when it comes to relationships?
I think starting a new year is a good time to reflect upon the last year in a relationship – its successes and areas for improvement. Rather than making grand, sweeping resolutions, I suggest people focus on what positive mini-habits they would like to incorporate into their lives.
For example, if you and your mate eat dinner in front of the television each night, an example of a mini-habit might be to eat in front of the television five nights a week rather than seven. Each week you might add another night without the television, until your meals are technology-free.
Whatever goals you choose for changes in your relationship, make them small enough so that you set yourself up for success!
