If you feel overwhelmed or agitated by everything, know that this is a normal reaction. However, this also means that you need to monitor and improve your mental health. There are a few tips that help to make your relationships better.

Five Minute Conversations

Be open in communication: Even a five-minute conversation with the people you live with can help your relationship. Joint breakfasts or dinners are a great opportunity for communication! Positive conversation in a friendly tone will cheer everyone up. But remember, you don’t have to be smiling all the time, especially when you’re feeling down. It is better to express genuine emotions.

Understand your own feelings

Understand what makes you angry, frustrated, frustrated, or shut down. There is nothing wrong with any of these feelings. What matters is how you deal with them. Try to think about what is causing these feelings. For example: “my mother criticizes me”, “my neighbors make a mess”, “something doesn’t work out for me”, “my parents often quarrel”.

React Consciously, Not Impulsively

In conflict, it is easy to react impulsively. Here are some constructive response options: leave, get distracted, calm down first. Take a few slow breaths and focus on what is around you at that particular moment. Weather. Sounds. your breath. Try to explain how you feel. Ask for help if you’ve tried and can’t calm down, or if someone else can’t calm down.

Reach out to those who support you

Think of 5 people in your life. How do you feel about them? How do you feel about them? Choose who to give time to.

Gratitude fuels relationships

Express your gratitude to 2 people who fill your life with light and strength. It can be a personal meeting, call, SMS, letter, or any other way. If you can’t, try to connect with them in your thoughts – in the memories, you have shared – and thank them for them.
