9 Ways to build healthy relation with Interpersonal Techniques

1. Respect others by listening actively

 Humans are social creatures by nature, even introverts. For this reason, you may need to take opportunities to interact with others if you want to build healthy relationships with others.

2. Enjoy diversity of people

 When we respect diversity, we respect the right of others to be different from ourselves, opening the door to safer, more meaningful and fruitful interactions. Ways to respect diversity are:

Learn about another culture or religion by attention a service at a worship center. Volunteer in your community to help individuals with disabilities or special needs. Travel to other countries and practice local customs when possible and respectful to do so. Watch documentaries that introduce you to different cultures and parts of the world.

3. Trust in the foundation of good relations

Trust is an essential component of a healthy relationship — it is difficult to make a deeper connection if you don’t feel safe with the other person. Demonstrate your trustworthiness by admitting when you are wrong and apologizing sincerely. Being reliable, you need to communicate openly. [6] You should look for people with the same attributes.

 4. Don’t lose an opportunity to meet new people.

The easiest way to meet people, even briefly, is to start a conversation. Research shows that communications, when initiated, actually makes us happier and have a more positive outlook on people generally.

5. Engage people you meet in interesting verbal communications

Never fidget or check your watch but nod when the other person makes a relevant point.

Listening is the first step to building a strong rapport with others. It shows that we value who they are as well as what is being said. Some keys to good listening are:

Maintain eye contact: This doesn’t mean staring, but it does mean focusing your attention on the companion as opposed to your phone or a person across the room.

Maintain appropriate body language: Your body language can help reinforce confidence in your companion. Don’t

6. Master non verbal communications techniques

Think carefully about what your non-verbal cues say to others. Non-verbal communication reinforces and accents what we are thinking and feeling.

In order to appear confident in non-verbal communication, try to speak at a normal rate (not too fast or too slow), make frequent eye-contact (but don’t stare, look away sometimes), avoid shaking your legs or fidgeting, and try to keep an open presentation (e.g. no arm crossing).

7. Resolve conflict in healthy ways

Conflict, even between like-minded people, is inevitable, and when we are frustrated, it can be easy to say things and act in ways that reflect that frustration and not our values. In order to resolve conflict constructively:

Avoid aggressive body language (such as pointing in someone’s face, standing too close, rolling your eyes, etc.) or language.

Ask questions and present views fairly.

Refuse to name call or resort to character attacks.

Always remind the other person that you respect his views and the right to have them.

8. Always be self-aware and learn new ways to build relations

 While you may want to focus on learning how to have healthy relationships with other people, learning about yourself can actually help you achieve this goal. It is important that you take the time to get to know who you are and what makes you tick, your likes and dislikes, and simply how you experience the world so that you can relate to others in a healthy way.[21]

For instance, being aware of things that set you off can keep you from overreacting. Perhaps you felt that your father didn’t listen to you when you tried to talk to him, and now you know that you tend to lose your cool when you someone doesn’t answer your question right away. If you are aware of this tendency, you can stop yourself before you snap at the person, reminding yourself, “I’m getting upset because this reminds me of Dad. Susan may be formulating a response, or she simply may not have heard me. There is no need to overreact.” Then you avoid blowing up at Susan and possibly damaging your relationship with her.

9. Enhance your self esteem through “self-actualization”

The term “self-actualization” originates with humanistic psychologist Abraham Maslow

It describes the process by which we fulfill lower-level needs so that we are then able to fulfill more conceptual needs.[23]. This ideology places strong emphasis on all levels of self-care and embracing ones needs.
