We are made up of Mind, Body and Spirit. Fostering healthy relationships with those we interact with helps ensure we keep our foundation and all the parts of our Whole Person in balance. This allows us to not only grow on a personal level, but also affects our physical and mental health.
Having a healthy level of trust, feeling secure and knowing that you’re loved or appreciated in the relationships of your life, whether they’re work, family or personal/romantic relationships, has a profound effect on how we function. We’re more likely to be able to reach our goals and dreams, as well as have a lower risk of heart attack, lower blood pressure, better skin, decreased instances of depression, lower risk of dementia and even a higher pain tolerance!
It’s one thing to know that healthy relationships are key to our Whole Wellness, it’s another thing to actually build and nurture them. Here are a few tips for how to make healthy relationships a reality in each area of your life;
- Be friendly and encouraging to your coworkers
- Be dependable. If you say you’re going to take on a task, do it.
- Rise above office gossip.
- Respect each member’s opinions and feelings
- Share family meals
- Spend quality time together
- Respect and appreciate your partner
- Be dependable
- Be encouraging
As you can see from the lists, respect, communication and dependability are key aspects to building and nurturing all of the kinds of relationships in your life!
