Relationships & Communication

Relationships & Communication
  • Do some relationships in your life stress you out?
  • Are you tolerating an uncomfortable situation instead of rocking the boat?
  • Do you find it harder to make and sustain friendships now than when you were younger?

Research demonstrates that supportive relationships with your family, friends, co-workers, and colleagues that are based on open, respectful communication can have a dramatically beneficial effect on your health.

If you want to live at your optimal health level, you must pay attention to the health of your social relationships. An important factor of keeping a relationship operating at its highest levels is effective communication. In this area of the Wheel of Health, we ask you to think about your relationships and assess your communication style, patterns, and skills, as well as providing ideas for how you can improve your communication if you so desire.
