Talk – communication is the key and often the first step to finding solutions.
Be calm and honest about your concerns when discussing your problems with a loved one.
Accept your differences – it can help avoid unnecessary conflict if you can recognise that people have different ideas, opinions and beliefs and you may not always be in agreement.
Have fun together – even when things are tough, it’s important to find the time to have fun with your loved ones.
Make a plan – it can help reduce stress and give common goals to work towards. For example if you are having financial problems it can help to create a budget.
Get help – you may not always be able to solve your problems yourself so you may need some external help.
