We’re entering the year’s toughest week for relationships.
If you are in a challenging time in relationship, these three keys will help you have smooth sailing in your relationship over Christmas and New Year.
1. Take time to choose your words. There’s a saying about ‘the sped arrow and the spoken word’ – you can’t take either back once they are released. If you’re feeling stressed, wait before you speak.
2. Don’t make rash decisions. If you’re feeling irritated or uncomfortable about an aspect of your relationship, remind yourself of this – relationship dynamics get magnified in the family-ar context of Christmas. This isn’t a good time to make decisions about your relationship or partner.
3. Breathe kindly. This is of utmost importance. By breathing kindly you bring kindness to your own body and mind. This automatically releases tension and puts you into a clearer, calmer state of being.
