5 Quick Ways To Rocket-Boost Your Relationships
1) Tell People What They Are Doing RIGHT!
All to often we only hear about the things we have messed up, failed at or need to improve on. Then, if you’re like me, we tend to play those comments over and over in our minds until eventually we start telling ourselves the same stressful stories. So flip the script on negativity and make an effort to tell others what they are good at and doing well.
2) Give Others Your FULL Attention.
Learn to put away the smart-phone and prevent the notifications and distractions from interrupting the conversations you’re having with the people right in front of you. In this fast-paced and multitasking world, it’s easy to let these bad habits wreck both your car and your relationships.
3) ENJOYABLY Understand And Meet People’s Needs.
Just because you solved a problem doesn’t necessarily mean the outcome was positive. Giving a hungry person a snack while lecturing them on their bad life choices doesn’t sound appetizing. Uhhhh, thanks but no thanks. So be sure to make the most of a helping hand by keeping the experience positive on the result and emotional level.
4) Become HEALTHIER!
We all probably know that good diet and exercise leads to better health. But you may not realize just how many mental health benefits are included in that statement. Being less reactive and more mindful, handling stress easier, and feeling happier are all part to the physical fitness package in your head and are all good in relationships.
5) Be THERE For People.
It’s hard to make an impact when you are not at the party or if you’re at the party and no one even knows you are there. So increase your presence by getting out, getting active and making a positive impact.
