How to foster healthy relationships?

October 23, 2018 at 7:32 pm

The modern day family is diverse in nature, with families today made up of a wide range of people. Healthy family relationships are key to the development of children’s positive mental health, with the family unit providing a central support network for children. Healthy families can consist of any person or group of people a child shares an emotional bond, common values and responsibilities with, and who contributes significantly to a child’s wellbeing. These families might consist of aunts, uncles, grandparents, step-parents or adoptive parents, and any person who plays a significant care-giving role for a child.

Healthy family relationships greatly influence children’s mental health and wellbeing as they help children build trust and feel supported. Children can share worries and stresses within healthy families, and can be supported to manage through these challenges. Family relationships also offer children their first opportunities to practise positive relationship skills that they can apply to other relationships in their life; even simple skills like saying ‘please’ and ‘thankyou’.

Wow, good to hear the wonderful feelings being shared by all you people. But calming the mind is easier said than done. Mind can go from peaks and troughs faster than you can imagine. It makes its own journey. Controlling the mind is the toughest thing to do. It takes of years of practice to remain in a calm state of mind always. We have to remind ourselves daily about our blessings and be mindful of mind’s wanderings.

I read somewhere that one is separate from one’s thoughts. Your thoughts cannot define you, You are much larger than the thoughts. Take control over your thoughts and whenever negative feelings start to strike, discard it as just a feeling and move on.

Clinging to emotions and feelings is a sure way to agitates and perturbed mind. Detach yourself from negativity and inhale positivity for a calm mind.
