Cultivating Healthy Relationships

Share

Here are some great habits to cultivate a healthy relationship with yourself which will naturally extend into the rest of your relationships.

DAILY

  • Tell the truth
  • Take 2 deep breaths before you answer yes or no questions
  • Make your daily maintenance a first priority
  • Start walking (or exercise of choice) 30 minutes a day
  • Express something you appreciate about yourself to yourself each morning
  • Express something you appreciate about another person to him/her/them directly each time you connect
  • Stay curious about your feelings: (Are you angry? Sad?  Try to identify what need is not being met)

AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE

  • Schedule an evening alone to do anything you want
  • Meditate on your own or in a group
  • Start a gratitude journal
  • List 10 things you like and appreciate about yourself
  • Repeat for all the important relationships in your life
  • Listen to Dr. Dan Siegel’s Wheel of Awareness guided mediation
  • Take up a hobby you’ve always wanted to try
  • Take a day off from social media
  • Have a party celebrating a milestone—not your birthday or anniversary
  • Regularly audit your relationships using the Relationship Boundary Model

One of the most important things to do first – when you realize that there is something you want to change – is to start with yourself.
