In this guide, we’ll explore the essential components of strong relationships and provide practical tips for building them. So, whether you’re looking to strengthen existing relationships or form new ones, let’s dive in!

7 Cornerstones of Healthy Relationships

Healthy relationships share some core characteristics that set them apart from unhealthy ones.
Let’s explore these essential building blocks:

    1. Communication

    Effective communication is the bedrock of any strong relationship. This means being able to express your thoughts and feelings openly and honestly while also actively listening to your partner. Communication involves both verbal and non-verbal cues, so be mindful of your body language and tone of voice.

    2. Trust

    Trust is the foundation of emotional intimacy. It allows you to feel safe and secure with your partner, knowing they have your back. Building trust takes time and effort and requires consistent honesty and reliability.

    3. Respect

    Mutual respect is essential for a healthy relationship. This means valuing your partner’s opinions, feelings, and boundaries. Respectful partners treat each other with kindness, compassion, and consideration.

    4. Honesty

    Honesty is vital for building trust and maintaining healthy relationships. This means being truthful with your partner, even when it’s difficult.

    5. Empathy

    The ability to see things from your partner’s perspective and understand their feelings is crucial for building strong connections. Empathy allows you to connect with your partner on a deeper level and stimulates emotional intimacy.

    6. Commitment

    Healthy relationships require a commitment from both partners to nurture and grow the connection. This means being willing to put in the effort to work through challenges and resolve conflicts.

    7. Shared Values

    Couples with similar values often find it easier to build a strong foundation for their relationship. Shared values provide a sense of common ground and can help guide decision-making.

Building Strong Relationships: 6 Practical Tips

Now that we understand the essential elements of healthy relationships, here are some practical tips to cultivate them in your life:

    1. Practice Active Listening

    Active listening involves paying close attention to your partner, both verbally and non-verbally. Try to understand their perspective and avoid interrupting.

    2. Communicate Openly and Honestly

    Share your thoughts and feelings with your partner in a clear and honest way. Be assertive, not aggressive, and avoid accusatory language.

    3. Spend Quality Time Together

    Make time for regular activities that you both enjoy. This could be anything from going for walks together to having a weekly date night.

    4. Show Appreciation

    Let your partner know how much you care about them through words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, quality time, and physical touch.

    5. Resolve Conflict Constructively

    Disagreements are inevitable in any relationship. The important thing is to learn how to resolve conflict in a healthy way. This means focusing on the issue at hand, avoiding personal attacks, and being willing to compromise.

    6. Seek Help if Needed

    If you’re struggling to build or maintain a healthy relationship, don’t hesitate to seek professional help. A therapist can provide guidance and support to help you navigate challenges and strengthen your connection.

Building Healthy Relationships in Different Stages of Life

Relationships take work and evolve throughout life. Here are some additional considerations for different stages:

  • Young Adults

  • As young adults develop independence, they may prioritize friendships, and romantic relationships may take on new forms. Communication and respect are especially important during this time of exploration and self-discovery.

  • Couples

  • Couples face challenges such as navigating finances, building a life together, and potentially raising children. Open communication, shared values, and a commitment to working through challenges are essential for navigating these complexities.

  • Families

  • Healthy family relationships provide a strong foundation for emotional well-being. Effective communication, empathy, and respect are crucial for enabling positive family dynamics.

  • Long-Term Relationships

  • Long-term relationships require ongoing effort to keep the spark alive. Prioritizing quality time, expressing appreciation, and nurturing intimacy are all critical for maintaining a solid connection over time.

The Final Note

By investing time and effort into building healthy relationships, you can create a strong foundation for happiness and well-being throughout your life. Remember, strong relationships don’t happen overnight, but with dedication and these helpful tips, you can cultivate connections that enrich and support you on your life’s journey.

Building healthy and lasting relationships is an ongoing process that requires effort and dedication. By incorporating the tips and strategies outlined above, you can cultivate strong connections that enrich your life and bring you happiness.

We changed their lives and here they send us reasons to smile !
Priceless words of honour.

I have known Dr Chandni for only 6 months. Yet today I consider her part of my family and my being. When I met her, I was exhausted with life and with myself. Not only did her session uplift & transform my physical body but I was grounded like I havent been in 8 years. Highly knowledgeable, able to answer your deepest questions, full of light and exuberance, I havent seen any energy healing so significant and long lasting. Im privileged to receive wellness from her and I know that Im never alone. My association with her is for life and her specialness is above the heavens for me.

Corporate Trainer, Delhi

I was part of the session with Dr. Chandni Tugnait and so many friends asked me about my experience. The following analogy reflects some parts of the experience -The best of Buddhas disciple gave their quantifiable findings but when it came to Andanda, his closest one, he had tears in his eyes and responded in a single sentence – “I don’t know”.Buddha responded emotively, you have me in you. One has to experience it to believe in the healing process in totality.
Thanks a lot for your contribution Chandni

More power to her, she is changing the life of many people with her holistic healing techniques and helping in removing limiting beliefs of people and unleashing the power within them to get healthy and successful life.

At times i wonder where does she keep it all. Such compassion – non judgmental, ever accessible, invaluable. It’s got to be a fountain within her that flows incessantly for the wary soul. No matter what your wound is, the magical waters of this fountain can cure all. And it was magic that got me to this fountain. For I had neither met her nor known her, at-least not in this lifetime! The first time i spoke to her, her compassion cut through my dense energy.

Chakra Balancing 5 days WhatsApp Workshop: It was well organised course, data was shared in time. Meditations were really helpful. All the details about chakra and different ways to clear and balance them were shared in a simple but effective way.

I am really grateful to be associated with Gateway of Healing.

It was indeed a great honor for me to be trained by Ms. Chandni on my first visit to India. Not only did she teach us techniques on improving our proficiency in the English Language but also helped us to be able to communicate effectively with people from different cultures. The sessions with Ms. Chandni are always fun & informative. Even after hours of training with her, there is no sign of tiredness or lethargy. I extend my gratitude to you for teaching us how to be BETTER THAN THE BEST!!

Robbi Adhilni

Every teacher educates but only a few enlighten and Chandni ma’am is one of them. Besides having outstanding teaching methods, she is also very skilful and enthusiastic. And the best part is she never settles for what she and her students have accomplished. I owe a lot to her in terms of motivation, enlightenment and most importantly for making me a good human being. Her words of motivation “YOU ARE BETTER THAN THE BEST” always are a major source of ENCOURAGEMENT..

Ms. Chandni is a fine young lady who simply touched my heart during my visit to India. Although she is my daughter’s age but the ease with which she handled our group of 40 odd people from different countries and different cultures, left me spellbound. English was never a problem for me but this young girl, who I proudly call my teacher, taught me some very interesting things. I wish you the best of luck in everything that you do. Smile as often as you can. May the Lord bless you!

I’m really thankful to Chandni Ji for bringing the awareness in me and helping me in empowering myself through the various workshops conducted by her. Not only am I more confident and happy now but also more capable of helping others by healing different issues in their lives. Thanks for always being there to guide me.

I’m really glad I attended the Serenity Surrender Basic Workshop with Chandni Ma’am. I’ll be indebted to you all my life for showing me the path of self empowerment. I had put myself in the gentle and capable hands of my guide and mentor ‘Chandni Tugnait Sharma’ and found that my opinion of myself, and my beliefs in the cycles of karma changed forever. The sessions and workshops have helped me develop my full potential, unlock hidden talents, and create more compassion and love for myself and others. Love You Ma’am.

I shall be eternally grateful to my sister-in-law for helping me uncover the fantastic laws of Universe and exposing me to the world of great mysticity and grandeur. Nothing seems impossible for me now. I get all that I desire and much more. One workshop changed so much for me. I, now, truly believe that nothing is unachievable in this abundant Universe.
