I (kind of shamefully) remember last year being the first time I realized that most New Year's Resolutions were largely absent of any sex or relationship goals.
When we think of the stereotypical New Year's Resolutions - weight loss, saving money, exercising more, maybe getting out of debt or resolving to focus more on one's health - we don't tend to immediately think of, "having more orgasms" or "prioritizing my romantic relationship" as worthwhile resolutions.
Hopefully, I'm going to change that.
And I get it, some people aren't into the whole "resolution thing" anyways... and I totes understand. After all, research shows (btw, this admittedly isn't the gold-standard, double-blind, latitudinal, validated and generalizable type of studies I typically rely on, but it's something!) that only about 12 or so % of resolutions are kept throughout the year. Not super promising! Does that mean resolutions are a waste of time?
I still don't think so.
Regardless of the "data," boiled down, resolutions create a sense of hopefulness! They give us an idea of what in our world can change in order to increase our quality of life. I'm down with that! So even if you're pessimistic about resolutions, or haven't had much success keeping them in the past, I'm going to encourage you to give it another go.Read More
