Healthy Relationships
Studies show that people with healthy relationships create more happiness and less stress. There are basic ways to make relationships healthy. Here are Ten Tips for Maintaining Healthy Relationships:

1. Keep expectations realistic. No one can be everything we might want him or her to be. 
2. Talk with each other. Communication is essential.
3. Be flexible. Healthy relationships mean change and growth.
4. Take care of you. Don’t forget to please yourself.  
5. Be dependable. If you make plans, follow through.
6. Fight fair. Most relationships have some conflict. Show respect.
7. Show your warmth. Studies tell us warmth is highly valued by  most people in their
     relationships.
8. Keep your life balanced. Relationships aren’t dependent.
9. It’s a process. Relationships are a learning experience.
10. Be yourself! It’s much easier and much more fun to be you than to pretend to be
       something or someone else. Sooner or later, it catches up anyway.
