The secret to a great lasting relationship is communication. It’s not just what people say to sound wise and mature. Communicating with a loved one is difficult at times when emotions are running high. Here are four healthy techniques you can use to improve communication between you and your spouse.

1. Stop and listen

When your partner is communicating something, learn to put your own thoughts aside and try to understand their intentions, feelings, needs and wants. This is one of the simplest things to do yet the hardest but you lose nothing by shutting your big mouth and actually listening. Keep an open mind!

2. Think first

This is a tough one for most of us but not impossible. Think about what you want to say and how you want to put it across. If you have a hot temper and tend to let your mouth run off, take a step back and cool down. My thumb of rule speaks to someone the way you would want to be spoken to.

3. Be clear and honest

A lot of misunderstandings occur because there is no clarity in our needs and expectations. We try to downplay our emotions and ain’t nobody a mind reader! Be brave and honest but don’t go checking your partner’s every move in the name of honesty. That’s just creepy

4. Learn to compromise

So you have listened and you have been clear and honest with your feelings, but you are at an impasse. What next?

You just need to learn a little give and take hun. We don’t always get our way and tantrums can only take you so far.
