9 Ways To Reduce stress In A Relationship
Do you think your relationship is so much stressed up? Then what can be done in order reduce stress? The following 9 ways will help out.

1. Avoid negative statements
If something happens that you do not have control of, do not make things worse by assuming that your life is going to be catastrophic. If you are facing a problem that bothers you, take it to your partner. Avoid clinging to your anguish, anger or irritability and thereby victimize yourself. Avoid closing up on your problem and using it as a throwing weapon against your partner, judging that you have legitimacy to be rude.

Instead of focusing on negative possibilities and expressing your negativity in a destructive way, sit down with your partner and discuss possible solutions. If you work together in a creative way you may be able to turn that challenge into an opportunity. This is the time to let your relationship shine.

2. Don’t shift blames
Blaming the other in an impulsive way is a very destructive game for a relationship and never contributes to unity. Even though the other may be responsible for a bad moment he may be going through, blaming is a path to mutual resentment and division. Sometimes bad things happen, that’s just life expressing itself.

Look at your partner as someone who may fail but who can also align your behavior if you have your understanding and commitment to help. Look at the setbacks and for some of the problems that arise as an opportunity to strengthen your relationship, this will help you avoid the temptation to blame your partner.

3. Take care of personal concerns
If your partner feels too tense, worried or defensive, it is important to gather information about what may be contributing to the problem. Even if these concerns are related to you, do not ignore them. Both are in the same boat, both are living in the same space. This means that they probably have similar concerns that need to work in a spirit of cooperation. The well-being of one promotes the well-being of the other.

4. Also answer the questions
The difference between an answer and a reaction has to do with the use of consciousness as mediator of emotions. When we just react to something we do not like, our reaction is likely to include only a negative emotional component.

If you choose to respond rather than react, your possible unthinking reaction will be mediated by the desire to maintain peace and unity in your relationship. The answer allows space for your willingly consciously to trigger the use of positive emotions, compassion and understanding.

5.Honor each other feelings
The way men and women respond to stress is very different. For the man, it may seem that she is placing too much emotional importance on the situation. For the woman, it may seem that he is just devaluing or ignoring the problem. It is important to recognize that we all express our concerns in different ways. Take into consideration the feelings of the other, even if you think that the problem is not serious enough for the emotional reaction expressed.

What bothers us each is the magnitude of the emotional impact felt, not properly the problem itself. Honor the way your partner feels and expresses events. The fact that each of us express our feelings differently does not mean that one person’s path is more valid than another’s, it is just different.

6. Look for the cause of the stress
If we are feeling stress in our relationship, it is important to discover its causes. If the source of the stress is external, take this into account and do not let it lead you to look at the other differently. In times of stress, remember the strengths of your relationship, enliven your partner’s strengths, remember who he is, how important you are.

Statistically, money issues are responsible for more relationship problems than any other source. But in reality, money is a financial problem. It only becomes a relationship problem if you let it. If you let this illusively transform your view of who you chose to be your partner. Make a commitment to your partner to work together to resolve financial problems.

7. Treat your partner with respect
As our stress levels increase, the ability to think clearly decreases. This can lead to impulsive behaviors. If we trigger blame and do not honor the feelings of others, we can let negative emotions take possession of our thoughts and thereby disrespect the other. Avoid planting weeds in your relationship.

You can promote emotional bonds in the relationship by maintaining a high level of respect for your partner, regardless of the challenges you face. Disagree with your partner’s opinion, present your justifications, defend your position and your ideas, but do not lay the other down, without denigrating or putting the value of it in question. This allows you to separate your reasons from your emotions. This lets you make it clear that you like your partner,

8. Encourage one another

How do you feel when your partner expresses trust in you? It’s encouraging, is not it? And this is especially true during difficult times when you may be experiencing emotional distress and are confused in your life. Feeling the comfort and encouragement of the person we choose to be the partner of our life is highly motivating.

Mutual encouragement is one of the most powerful anti-stress tools in your relationship, be sure to make good use of it. Instead of waiting for stressful situations to express your support, create and promote situations or times to motivate and encourage your partner.

9. Stay clear of external stress
It is healthy for the relationship to be able to recognize the difference between the relationship and the problems or challenges we face. The love you feel for the other needs to be protected from any problems that may exist. To confuse the two is to sabotage the relationship. To improve the relationship , you need to increase your emotional awareness so that in times of stress you can wisely assess what is causing your discomfort.

It is possible to manage stress and also eradicate those that are not necessary.

Buhari: 12 million Nigerian children are afraid of attending school

post-image

According to President Buhari, 12 million children in the country have been traumatized and are frightened to attend  school because of the high prevalence of kidnapping.

On Tuesday, October 26, the President announced this during the launch of the Safe School Programme in Abuja.

The President, who was represented at the ceremony by his Chief of Staff, Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, also stated that dealing with security concerns in the country has been difficult.

“The incessant attacks on the country’s education system such as kidnapping, abduction of pupils/students, increased activities of insurgence and general insecurity in our schools have exacerbated many factors responsible for the growing number of out-of-school children.

It is disheartening to note that even when the abducted students are released, the trauma of the incidences remains long in their minds; hence the plan to have teachers trained on psycho-social support.

There are more than 12 million children currently traumatised and afraid of…

Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), claims it would “convincingly” win the next gubernatorial election in Anambra and the presidential election in 2023.

John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said on Thursday, October 21 at the inauguration of the state congress appeal committee in Abuja that all members of the APC should see disagreements “within the party as family disputes and should not seek to destroy the platform which helped them in the past.”

“With the huge membership strength we have recorded during the last registration and revalidation exercise, there is no doubt that Nigerians still trust us and that we will win all the upcoming elections convincingly, starting from the governorship elections in Anambra, to Osun, Ekiti, and to the 2023 general election,” he said.

“Therefore, there is a greater need to sustain the trust of our party men and women and indeed all Nigerians.
