Stop Overwhelm In Its Tracks: 2 Simple, Relaxation Tips on How To Better Your Relationship…

Better Your Relationship While Jogging on the BeachIn all my years of working with entrepreneurs and solopreneurs many of their challenges are about how to better your relationships.
As you know we are all looking for a partner who is supportive and on the same path?
There are several myths that can compound this problem. I am here to share one of these myths with you and reveal the real truth behind this myth.
Here’s the myth:
Stress causes you to be angry with your partner because your partner works long hours

Wayne: Is that all because of stress?

Cecil: Yes and no.

The issue is that you know what kind of work your partner is doing. For example, my wife is a nurse and works 7:00 to 3:00.

She’s supposed to finish work at 3:00. If someone is admitted to the floor around 2:45, my wife could be there another hour and a half.

Tip #1:

If I go pick her up after work and she tells me she has to work another hour and a half, there’s nothing I can get upset about.

That’s just the nature of her work. You need to understand that’s just the way it is.

Some of us understand this. There’s no point in getting angry with the person.

Wayne: I would think you are very unique there. Most people who have to wait for their spouse for an hour and a half would be going crazy.

Cecil: Initially, I wondered about it but what I discovered is that is the nature of her business. To put it in context, I work from home.

My clients know I go pick up my wife at 3:00 so there are no appointments then. The whole thing is about understanding the nature of the business.

Wayne: So you readjusted your schedule.

Tip #2:

Cecil: I have to make the adjustment in my life and say, “Here’s what it is.” Another example, my wife also works 3:00 to 11:00. I need to make an adjustment and I choose to make this adjustment. When she comes home at 12:30 at night, I can spend some time with her.

This means every two weeks I’m on a different vibration. We teach in our relaxation programs that you can’t decide how you want to live your life. You’ve got to take the situations and make adjustments to them. When my wife comes home late at night, instead of her being up alone and I’m sleeping, I spend one or two hours with her.

One of the biggest obstacles that prevent entrepreneurs and solopreneurs from learning how to better your relationship with your partner is the ability to adjust to circumstances and go with the flow.

I hope I have helped to change your thinking. When you realize how simple and easy it is to improve your relationship on a daily basis, you will look forward with excitement to search and find more opportunities to have fun each day.

Stress Management Technique: Are You Missing This Stress Management Technique in Your Relationship?

Wayne: Can stress screw up your relationship?
Stress management technique for listening with your ear.r
Cecil: We really have to look at the root cause of this whole issue.
What’s the myth here?
The myth is not that stress screws up relationships.

The whole myth is that nobody is listening.

What I mean by that is we have two tape recorders.

Let’s assume it’s you and your partner. Both tape recorders are speaking, but nobody’s listening.

What’s the reason for that?

The challenge we have in communication is that we are very seldom listened to. Everybody is talking, talking, talking, but nobody is listening.

When people come to see me in my private practice, what happens is everybody is talking but nobody takes the time to listen. You have two tape recorders.

Think of a conversation you had with whomever and when you last had it. You find that as soon as you start a conversation and ask a question, the person starts talking to you and then you seem to be cut off.

People cut you off to tell you something about themselves.

People have a desire to be heard, but nobody is listening to anybody.

It becomes very frustrating, especially in relationships when you’ve gone to work, you come home to your partner and nobody is talking to each other.

“What happened today at work?” You start talking and your partner says, “Well, this is what happened.”

We have been taught what’s called “communication.”

What has baffled me for 14 years in my private practice is people come to me and say, “Cecil, we’ve done communication.”

What about listening?

I thought communication was all about listening.

People seem to think they understand communication, but very few people have been taught how to listen. It keeps folks from having a relationship.

That, in my opinion, is one of the biggest reasons for issues in relationships. Nobody is listening to anybody because everybody wants to say something.

We’re too busy to actually stop and say, “What is this person saying?” We don’t take time to acknowledge this person, listen to them and give them feedback.

Everything is happening so fast and everybody is so busy that nobody can take a break to actually listen to what somebody has to say.

The interesting thing about starting any relationship is the marvellous energy and exuberance you have. The challenge is, without a proper stress management technique for listening you can waste this valuable resource leaving you feeling frustrated and overwhelmed with nothing to show for your effort.

Be sure to follow the crucial beginner’s listening tips that I have outlined. Through these points, you could be at speed up the rate at which you attain your better communication. And this would definitely amaze you!
