Healthy Relationships Resolutions for 2017

Happy New Year, everyone!

We love the start of a new year. It’s such a great opportunity to take a closer look at our lives, what we’re happy about and what we’d like to improve or change moving forward.

As always, we’ve got healthy relationships on our minds here at loveisrespect. We came up with a few healthy relationship resolutions to help you make 2017 your healthiest year yet!

Communicate Better

Open, honest communication is so important in a relationship, but a lot of people have difficulty communicating in healthy ways with their partners. Check out these posts to help you communicate better in 2017:
