Relationship Booster #4: Watch your words

As week 6 of my ‘8 weeks to a better bodymind challenge’ draws to a close, I have been really enjoying the commitment to nurturing my relationships. How have you been going following these tips? I hope you’re seeing the upward spiral of joy in action too.

One of my favourite tips: today I am watching my words. I will be mindful of the ratio of positive to negative statements I make to my loved ones… it is so important to balance expressions of gratitude, admiration and affection with criticism.

Research has shown that to sustain a relationship you need a minimum of three positive statements for every critical statement. If you want your relationships to flourish, aim for a ratio of 5:1. Watch your words and start to notice your ratios of positive to negative statements.

Strike the right balance today and see what blossoms. 

Relationship Booster #1: Celebrate Good News

Today I am observing how I respond to others sharing good news

I commit to using “active and constructive” responding. This is when you demonstrate a genuine interest, ask lots of questions, encourage your loved one to relive the event with you, and reflect back to them that you share their joy.

Watch how it brightens everyone’s day.

Rest and Refresh Tip #5: Fill your down time with something life giving

It’s uncanny timing that I come down with a cold during the “rest and replenish” week of my 8 weeks to a better bodymind challenge. I’ve had no choice but to be still but what it has served to remind me is that we choose just how we fill that stillness. We can opt for just a ‘brain fade’ and tune out or we can choose something that elevates our minds and lifts our spirits. Go for something life giving and the dividends keep rolling in. Suz xxx
