Relationship BrochureStrategies to maintain healthy relationships1.Communicate Openly: How carefully do you choose your words when speaking with your partner? I’ve seen a lot of couples that truly are nice people to everyone else, but were awful when speaking to each other. 2.Be positive: Does your partner tend to get the best of you or the worst of you in terms of your mood or attitude? There’s a tendency to be at our worst with the person we feel the most comfortable with, but this can be very damaging over time.3.Assure commitment in the relationship: People want to know that things are “okay” in the relationship. Reassure each other by saying “I love you” every day, showing physical affection, being playful, and using your best communication skills. Although it’s easy to fall into that trap of thinking “After ten years, she should know I’m committed to her”, people do need that reassurance.
