One of the 5 P’s of Life is “Personal Relationships” – your relationship with others, including your spouse, significant other, parents, other family members and friends. To build and strengthen these relationships, it’s important to dedicate time to them – no matter how busy life becomes for you. Below are personal relationship tips we tweeted last month on Twitter. Please share these tips with your loved ones.

With a depressed friend, seek to listen, understand and more importantly, maintain a no-judgement stance.

Encourage your teenager to visit their grandparents more often – both would benefit from the bond.

When relatives voice unwelcome opinions, control your reaction by changing the conversation topic.

Strengthen your relationship by letting your loved one know they are appreciated and valued.
