Anger and Conflict
Conflict in relationships escalate through three stages: complaint is expressing dissatisfaction, criticism involves identifying recurring behavioral patterns, but contempt, the most toxic stage, attacks a person’s character, leading to a destructive ‘you versus me’ dynamic
When discussing an issue, start with sensory data (what you see, hear, feel, etc.), then share your thoughts, feelings, wants, and actions, using “I” statements to provide a clear and complete understanding of your perspective to your listener.
Care for the Family
On the Care for the Family website, there is a wealth of support for family life, focusing on the couple relationship building, parenting challenges, and bereavement assistance, with each section delivering tailored practical and emotional aid.
Emotional intelligence is crucial as it enhances our ability to understand, manage, and express emotions effectively, fostering better personal and professional relationships and decision-making.
Exercise and Mental Health
Regular exercise positively impacts mental health by reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety, improving mood, and enhancing overall psychological well-being.
