Healthy Relationships


Relationships are a big part of our lives and they can range from casual to serious. Different types of relationships help make up the social support network that is pivotal to your physical and mental well-being.

Having healthy close relationships provides many advantages including lower stress levels, better sleep quality, increased happiness, more self-awareness and confidence, a sense of purpose, higher productivity and more. Even if you enjoy being alone, you should consider building a couple of solid relationships to support you through life’s ups and downs.

Healthy relationships are built on 10 pillars. These include – mutual respect, appreciation for each other’s differences, choosing words carefully, maintaining boundaries, communication that is open and honest, and caring for one another.

Balanced relationship means giving and taking equal amounts of affection, energy, love and support. It also means respecting each other’s individuality and allowing each person to maintain their own friends and family without jealousy.

The right partner for you is someone who cheers you on when you succeed, understands you when you can’t explain yourself and can’t wait to see you when you get home. They are someone who can help you heal your scars and remind you of all that is good in the world.

A healthy relationship can be difficult to navigate at times but it’s worth the effort. Just be sure to avoid negative relationships that don’t foster positive interactions or cause damage to your health.
