In all my years of working with entrepreneurs and solopreneurs I am amazed at the challenge they have being heard in their personal relationship.
It breaks my heart when two people have to shout and scream at each other in order to be understood.
Where is the love?
Well there are simple strategies that will not only relieve stress and anxiety, but will give you the ability to communicate so much easier. The good news is I am about to reveal three best strategies to you.
Make a list of what you want done:
If you have been asking your partner to close the lid on the toilet seat after use but they never get it.
Here’s what to do:
Instead of repeating yourself by saying the same thing over and over again, write out what you would like your partner to do. You can put it in an envelope or just write it on a piece of paper.
An even more interesting thing to do would be to draw a picture of what you have written. In other words make a visual representation of what you want to say instead of writing.
You see some people are visual and respond better to images and colour.
Your partner might laugh at your drawings or be surprised at your letter. At least now you have their attention. You may ask them what they think about your note. They may even get offended.
Just remember your outcome is to have a resolution to your problem. So you need to keep calm about their response. This is critical. They are entitled to their opinion and we are not using abusive language or forcing communication.
If the response is positive and you get their agreement – congratulations! You’re done.
If, on the other hand, they have an objection then you acknowledge their concern (you need to be relaxed and quiet).
Next you ask what they would suggest to solve the problem (closing the lid of the seat cover after use). This is very important because now they are actually providing a solution to your problem.
Simply follow the steps above and you will get to relieved stress and anxiety in your relationship. Now, I challenge you to do something about your problem by finding a piece of paper and follow the strategy I outlined above.
We eagerly look forward to hearing your stories of success and even enjoying life’s challenges by means of these new approaches. Peace.

Good tips on how to get control over the stress... I guess it is one of the parts that should be taken care of when you lost your temper.The other part I'm talking about is the actual stress relef and the immunity to stress. Vitamin B comples helps a lot to get some immunity to stress (actually to get some more energy and be less irritative). There are also tools like Stress Sweeper, Heart Tracker that actually help relieve stress and reduce blood pressure.
