Having healthy communication with your partner is essential to maintaining a healthy long-term relationship. A study by Johnson MD, Lavner JA, Mund M, et al, published in SAGE Journals concluded that effective communication increased relationship satisfaction for couples.
It’s important to know how to approach healthy communication and how to adjust your style of communication based on what the situation calls for. For serious matters, you may want to use a formal approach, but for everyday relationship issues, a softer approach can be helpful.
If you use healthy methods of communicating, you are more likely to find common ground even during a disagreement, because you’re tackling the problem at hand, instead of attaching each other. This can help strengthen your relationship over time.
Do you feel like healthy communication is missing from your relationship? Do you avoid issues because you don’t want to end up having an argument?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions and want to get back on the right track then you and your partner could benefit from attending The Love Walk!
The Love Walkis designed to help married and singles refocus on what matters the most – communication and getting to know that special someone with no distractions.
Join other couples and singletons who will walk the walk to remember this year at Hesperianpuisto (Hesperia Park).
