Learn to Love Consistently with Conscious Communication Practices
Good communication builds healthy relationships. Hailed by the best-selling relationship author John Gray as, “brimming with wonderful ideas and methods that can help any couple experience a deeper, more profound connection," More Love Less Conflict teaches readers how to communicate effectively and get more out of love.
Build your communication skills in a deliberate way. Whether debating with our parents, trying to convince our boss, or romancing our significant other, the importance of communication skills in our day-to-day is undeniable. In fact, good communication is crucial to cultivate happy, healthy relationships. Through conscious strategies, learn how to become a better listener, practice open communication, and handle almost any situation.
More intimacy and connection, less frustration and arguments. Love is not some sporadic thing we attain every once in a while―hopefully. To psychotherapist and best-selling author Jonathan Robinson, communication is, like love, something to work on and get better at through conscious practice. Couples in love will learn to engage in crucial conversations, understand unique needs, spot a partner’s triggers, and overcome communication barriers.
Communication breakdown. In part one, Robinson introduces ways to build a foundation of love and connection. He supplements this with communication exercises, dedicating the rest of the book to:
- Effective communication techniques to understand your partner
- Practices to increase love, fun, and affection
- Methods designed to specifically decrease conflict
