Effective Communication Between Couples

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Effective Communication Between Couples

When you spend so much time with someone you are bound to have at least an occasional difference of opinion, to say the least, and it’s not always easy to keep objective and levelheaded when you enter into a disagreement with your partner. When this happens, remember to use these effective communication skills with your partner to improve the odds of reaching a solution that is in the relationship’s best interest.

This is because no matter how much you love and respect each other, it might not be possible to always keep cool and be levelheaded while entering into a disagreement with your significant other.

Here are a few effective communication skills that can improve the odds of reaching an amicable solution:

  1. Use ‘I’ in the statement: Never blame your partner. This can make your partner feel that you are trying to attack your partner’s feelings, which often takes a negative turn. For example, if your partner is late, you can say “I would have appreciated if you had called me”. In this case, it’s all about how you feel and so it’s now up to the partner to appreciate, understand and consider your situation.

  2. Don’t interrupt; listen first: Generally, in an argument, both the partners usually wait for their turn to talk and spurt out their anger and resentment. But this often makes things get worse. Most of the time, disagreements and petty discords, often, get resolved more easily, when someone pays more attention to the cause that might be making the other person upset. Also, watch out for the other person’s body language for getting a grip of his/her feelings. Try and pay undivided attention to what your partner has to say. Only when you have understood what might be the reason for all the hullaballoo, should you start explaining.

  3. Don’t dig up the Past: Always stick to the discussion and the controversy at hand. Never dig up old corpses. Digging up past hatchet will only churn out further heated arguments, things you surely would want to avoid. Remember, resolving multiple conflicts could only get nastier and even more difficult.

  4. Explain later, Acknowledge first: The most effective way of avoiding sudden escalation of disagreements is to first listen and acknowledge your partner’s feelings. Do it even if you think that the other person’s argument lacks reason. Take your time to hear out the other person.

  5. Maintain a Positive and a Respectful Tone: Lastly, maintain a positive and a respectful tone. And never abuse. Abusing is derogatory and can invite further malice that will only keep on spiraling north. There never was and will never be any alternative to maintaining dignity and holding your ground no matter how much the malice is. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

First of all, he needs to want to give it up. All your efforts will end in vain if he himself does not want to give it up. You can, however, talk to him about the dangers and convince him to want to quit. Codeine addiction is worsened by increasing tolerance levels for the drug. If he is having a serious addiction and he cannot quit its use, he will have to admit himself to a rehabilitation center and go through their program for a complete recovery. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes him away from the influences of people and circumstances that he has gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When he comes out of the center he must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. He will also need to attend NA meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. He will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to codeine. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. He will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. He must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach him new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. He should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. to be involved with other important activities in his neighborhood. He will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to his body because of the abuse.

I am of age 16 years some time I feel very anxiety please help me why it happens?
If it is coming at this age there is something that is rising up from your childhood. Kindly meet with a counselor along with your parents and see what they find out. If the counselor decides that you should see a doctor kindly make that appointment too and cooperate with both the therapies. If it is tackled early the prognosis will be good.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Some people find it difficult to see blood and the sight of blood induces some kind of emotional distress in them. In your case after seeing blood you fainted, so in a way, it is your body's defence mechanism that has worked for you to save you from that emotional distress after seeing blood. This is not a very serious matter. But in life, you will have situations where you might have to see blood and act courageously. Hence, to get rid of this sort of blood phobia you can talk to a counsellor who by using different therapies will help you to manage your fear of blood.

I am very very afraid of lot of things in my life. I have lot of phobias and my mind is completely collapsed of fear all the time. Even though certain things doesn't matter for me but my brain is not accepting and creating more fear. I don't have friends, I am single and have none to share my fear. Please help me how to stabilise my mind and to stop fear. I am now more afraid of local thieves and slum people. Nowadays more bike thieves arising and these guys would kill people for money just like that. Lots of crimes and I AM TIRED OF BEING cautious ALL THE TIME. I couldn't sleep. I couldn't go out. I couldn't speak in public. .I couldn't park my bike or car and do my work. My mind just threatens me all the time. I do over think a lot. Please help me out I AM AFRAID THAT ONE DAY I WILL BECOME MENTAL. Please help me out. I want to be brave and how to remove all the negative thoughts from my mind. I am feeling shy to ask help for my cowardness directly. Please help.

There is nothing to feel embarrassed about being afraid. The more you talk about it, the better you will feel. So it is very important to make friends and lot so them and you may have some close friends from among them to share very intimate things. The fear complex is doing you in. Please attend a personality development course that highlights the five-factorial approach: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual quotients. If you develop in these five areas, you will certainly improve your confidence. Some personality courses emphasize and focus on public speaking to a large extend. It is not too bad an idea but it is a little narrow in perspective. You could instead attend a Toast Masters Club, which does the same thing in a more organized manner. Apart from regular and aerobic exercising, you must also visit a gym to build a good body image. You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don’t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your studies and work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. Now, remember that all your problems are in your mind: spiritual wellness, faith and prayer will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these goals. In all this, trust is a very important development. If you don't have trust you will never relate to people and you will never enjoy relationships. There is strength in numbers and you are avoiding the very thing that will make you feel secure. There may be a lot of childhood issues that may have contributed to this level of fear and lack of trust. The counselor will help you [process this and identify the origins and sort out a lot of these contributors to yoru problems.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I went through your query and can understand what you must be going through. The symptoms that you have mentioned are suggestive of underlying anxiety disorder. You should consider seeking a psychiatric consultation and getting yourself evaluated completely. Anxiety disorders respond well to treatment with medications and psychotherapy. Earlier the treatment is started better is the response. I do hope that you recover at the earliest. Best wishes.

Don't get misguided by mechanical search on internet. It may not be intertrigo. It may be simple fungal infection generally called ring worm. The itching is usually very disturbing and spreads very fast especially to the parts where there are skin folds. But to your assurance; it is nothing serious to worry about until otherwise proved. It can be successfully treated by homeopathic medicines. Consult with few more details. And advise is not to indulge in local creams.

I smoke every day n I m addicted to it. I m smoking from the age of 16 now I m 18 what should I do I feel very bad from inside while smoking cigerate.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The discomfort you are feeling inside is very good because it can trouble you enough to help quitting. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking tobacco. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

If you feel excessive sleep or tiredness/ head spinning or vertigo like feeling you have to make sure you have no anaemia or hypothyroidism by doing a blood CBC & TSH and inform me directly 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.
