Benefits of healthy communication

communication Sep 18, 2020
 
1️⃣ Healthy communication helps us build trust and intimacy with others.
2️⃣ We will feel listened to and understood, when we have been able to deliver a message or express emotion to someone, who has received it in such a way that also helps them understand us and themselves.
3️⃣ Communication helps us to express emotions and feelings such as love, joy, sadness and anger.
When we learn how to convey these in different and meaningful ways, we grow spiritually, nurturing the needs of our spirit as well as those around us.

Ways to improve communication

✅ Clarity and honesty. Say what you mean and mean what you say
✅ Listen. Communication is a reciprocal engagement. Be prepared to actively listen to the person you are communicating with. Ask and clarify if you are uncertain of what is being said. Pay attention.

Are you communicating via text when it would be better face to face?
Is a written letter easier to express yourself, to ensure a conversation isn’t reactionary?
Find alternative ways to express your feelings and emotions, if you don’t have the words to say.

What are some of these for you?
Have you always been shy and not enjoyed talking?
Do you have unresolved pains and traumas that have caused you to feel silence is the better option to avoid conflict?
Or have you developed an aggressive way of communicating because of built up anger and stress?
 
Sometimes the experiences we are going through at the time, like work or family pressures, deadlines or financial stress, changes the way we would normally communicate with another.

Do you find it sometimes hard to find the words to share what's on your heart and mind?
Have you ever found that your choice of words could have been better to express your heartache pain, or that these messages and emotions could have been better conveyed to avoid harm to others?
Do you find it hard to express joy, even when you are happy?
 
Communication is an integral part of our lives.
It is a need of the spirit.
 
We communicate in many different ways, through our eyes, body language, voice and mediums like singing, art, dance and music. We communicate face to face or via text, telephone, email, mail or video calls.
 
Communication is an expression of how we think and feel and it impacts on our quality of life and relationships.
How we choose to convey our message also affects our relationships.
