Optical, auditory, emotional, nonverbal, and verbal types of communications are needed to continue a relationship. A little communication goes such a long way. A relationship should be based on communication not on assumptions.
Maupassant said “It is the encounters with people that make life worth living.” A willingness to communicate without blame and stick to the point, being able to express anger assertively without blame or making the other person wrong and also respect differences without expressing judgement are the key to communicate with others positively.
Physical touch and expression of affection are also a part of communication that should be mutually enjoyable. Sometimes a hug is all that you need to make you feel better. It can also be a sign of security, emotional support, friendship, or love. When you hug your partner you immediately give them the benefit of boosting their oxytocin levels, which creates a stronger bond and connection between the huggers. It is proved that oxytocin can boost the immune system ,reduce the stress hormone norepinephrine thus reduce stress and blood pressure. When you hug for several moments you can lift the level of serotonin. This can improve your partner’s mood. So a simple hug can reduce the feelings of loneliness, isolation and anger . When you hug there is an easy pressure that is placed on the sternum which creates an emotional charge activating the solar plexus, stimulating the thymus gland, which takes care of body’s production of the white blood cells and those keep a person free from disease and healthy. So A hug a day keeps the doctor away. Virginia Satir once said, We need four hugs a day for survival. We need 8 hugs a day for maintenance. We need 12 hugs a day for growth.
Touch can calm your nerves, lowers cortisol levels. Cortisol causes things like fat gain, heart disease, and high blood pressure, so physical touch isn’t just calming, but also healthy. While Hugs can make angry people comfortable, Holding your partner can offer comfort in crisis.
Logically, trust is built over time when a couple gets to know one another’s true loyalty, patterns of behavior. In our brain sense of trust is often triggered by the release of dopamine. This neurotransmitter is responsible for feeling closer to your partner through promoting trust and happiness. Physical intimacy also releases the endorphin which can act as a natural painkiller in our system. It can bring joy to your tough day and help you get a break from the negative thoughts. When polarity in relationships is fully embraced, a beautiful connection is created.
So a little communication goes a long way. If you’re busy say it, if you’re running late then let people know, if you don’t want to do something, be straightforward, if you’ve doubt then ask.
