For Your Information


COUPLE CARE

Communication is the key to a strong, healthy relationship. Without effective communication, any relationship is in trouble. Communicate your thoughts, plans, ideas and opinions with your partner on a consistent basis. Equally important: Communicate your feelings – the joys, sorrows or frustrations we all experience.

ANGER MANAGEMENT TIP

Walk away when you're angry. Before you react, take time to mentally regroup by counting to 10. Then look at the situation again. Walking or other physical activities will also help you work off steam.

OVERWHELMING STRESS

If you're feeling overwhelmed by stress, how do you know when it's time to get professional help? According to the American Psychological Association, here are a few indicators:

  • You feel trapped, like there's nowhere to turn
  • You worry excessively and can't concentrate
  • The way you feel affects your sleep, your eating habits, your job, your relationships, your everyday life.

If you or a family member needs help, contact your EAP for confidential counseling, referrals or information.
