alright guys in this video we’re going
to be going over 10 habits of successful relationships now these are things that
you can model yourself these are things that successful relationships have in
common that you can look at and go wow if I do that I will have a higher
likelihood of having a successful relationship now this can be anything
from dating boyfriend/girlfriend marriage all the way down to just your
friends just your co-workers even your neighbors this is a broad spectrum of
things it’s just having a great relationship and number one is
communication a lot of problems are caused simply because people do not know
how to communicate how they feel how they think and what is causing the
problem and if you get communication down it’s the foundation for a great
relationship I know a lot of people who are friends but don’t feel comfortable
telling each other how they feel and because of that they have a very rocky
relationship and there’s not much content there’s not much meat in the
friendship it’s just you know if one of them got in a car accident they would
show up to the hospital bed and they’d say there’s anything I can do I’ll do it
for you but they won’t actually mean it like they wouldn’t actually like scrub
their feet that was a weird analogy but you know what I mean it’s not like a
deep meaningful relationship to me number two is forgiveness and this is
something that I’ve noticed in my life that you can find there’s a lot of
people who struggle with forgiving someone and something I actually I
wouldn’t suggest this but you can do it if you want to is actually to make a
mistake on purpose and then ask someone else for your forgiveness and in turn
how they forgive you can determine the quality of the relationship so it’s
completely ambiguous I wouldn’t do anything major but as long as you
understand that your friend your spouse your girlfriend your boyfriend whoever
you’re living with can forgive you that’s going to be a quality of a great
relationship and you in turn can do that yourself you can forgive people for what
they have done and it’s actual forgiveness not just saying that you
apologized but forgiveness like I actually forgive you I’m not going to do
it again I am sorry I feel bad that comes a lot with tip number 3 which is
understanding when you understand the person and how they feel it comes a lot
easier to forgive them now understanding is really difficult and you kind of have
to have I don’t want to be real cheesy about it but you have to have a big
heart have to have the openness to want to
understand someone else in their situation and the empathy and the
sympathy to know how someone else feels and understanding their situation that
they may not have had the out to get you kind of thinking but something bad
happens and that understanding will lead to forgiveness and over time
understanding them they will be more likely to be open to understanding you
tip number four is to understand the five love languages and when if you’ve
ever read the book the five love languages you will start to understand
that’s loving someone but having a loving relationship isn’t something you
can do passively you know I talk about income all the time you can make passive
income to where it just trickles into your bank account you don’t even have to
think about it but a great relationship if you understand the five love
languages you start to understand that they’re not passive they’re active so
you have to go out and it’s kind of breaks down a habit a little bit but
actively loving someone understanding that this friend will feel more loved if
I give them a gift every week and this friend on the other hand won’t feel the
same way but they will feel loved even more if I spend 30 minutes with them
every day and the five love languages you can read that book their words of
affirmation service gifts quality time and physical touch and everyone’s
different you might have a mix of those one of those I’d be super important to
you you just have to understand yourself and you also have to understand the
person that you’re with the relationships that you have built in
your life when you start deconstructing them and finding out what their love
languages or what their priorities are then you can start to have a better
relationship in terms of how you form your habits tip number five is respect
now this is a big one and I’ve actually had some struggle with this among some
of my friends because they’ll go out and do things and it’s hard for me to
respect them through their actions but I can tell you what the friends that I do
respect I have a great relationship with you know I look up to them it’s like wow
that’s a great quality that I think you have and I would like to have that just
respecting them understanding that they’re not below you that are with you
and sometimes when you start to look at people below you you start to not
respect them as much because you feel like they’re undervalued but and I don’t
want to talk about this as much because I don’t know much about it but I do know
it is a habit of great relationships respect tip number six is to
she ate each other now appreciation can go anything all the way back to the five
love languages to say I appreciate you let’s spend 30 minutes together watching
the sunset – I appreciate you I wrote you a little note when I thought of you
or here’s a small gift when I was on vacation just appreciating them and
sometimes you can even vocally tell someone hey I appreciate that you’re in
my life and that helps out a lot tip number
seven is to look at situations not that it’s me versus you it’s not me versus
you I’m gonna say that one more time it’s not me versus you what it is is us
versus the problem so when you come at something and there are people coming
they start just butting heads and it’s like where it’s like a war they’re
starting to attack each other and attack each other’s personal qualities and
that’s that’s the problem in the first place isn’t that they’re not joining
together to solve the problem and the thing is if they would just join
together and go you know what it’s not your fault it’s not my fault it’s both
of our faults what can we do to solve this problem that will solve so many
relationship problems just coming at it together as a team whether that’s a
marriage team or a boyfriend/girlfriend team or even you and your friend if you
guys just start looking at problems and bickers that you guys bickering as
something that you guys can solve together you’ll have a lot more success
in that relationship the next tip is that honesty comes first now there’s a
lot of times in my life I can look back and go man it was really easy to lie
there but when it comes down to it friendships and great relationships are
for the long term so if you want a short term relationship yeah go ahead and lie
but if you be honest even if you be honest first without going through a
bunch of loopholes that friend will start to respect you more they will
understand you more you will start to have better communication with them it’s
just a another great foundational habit of a great relationship is to be honest
first and if you don’t feel comfortable being honest to a person there might be
some psychological abuse or something else going on that is making that
relationship unsteady and you ma you probably want to get away from that the
next tip is to make time for each other now this is something I struggle with
and I think a lot of entrepreneurs might struggle with in relationships
specifically because they love to work I’m almost like a workaholic I love
working something about me specifically is that I don’t want to spend my time
doing meaningless so I look at things and I
value my time really high and sometimes if I’m just out with my girlfriend and
we’re not having a great time I almost start to look down upon that because I
was like I could be making five or ten thousand more dollars a month if I spent
that time on the business but I also look at the relationship view of it and
I’m like you know this relationship is a great thing in my life if I didn’t have
it I might not want to work as hard so that’s something that you’ve got a
balance and you’ve got to be self-aware to understand what percent of your life
do you want to work and what percent of your life do you want to be actually
part of your life and the entrepreneur part of that is where can you mesh those
the last tip is of course to laugh a lot now there are a ton of psychological
benefits to laughing a lot and if you can build a habit up to where when you
spend time with someone and you just when you’re around them you’re
charismatic sometimes some people that I’m around
I literally just feel more charismatic and it’s not even me that has changed
it’s them it’s the people that I’m around they make me feel more
charismatic they make me feel like it’s okay to laugh it’s okay to be myself and
if you can surround yourself with people like that that’s another great habit to
form in a great relationship so I’m gonna go back through and review these
ten habits that you can come up with that you can model the masters to have a
great relationship number one is communication the next
one’s forgiveness number three is understanding number four is to
understand and actively pursue the five love languages
number five is respect each other number six is to appreciate each other number
seven is to look at things that it’s us versus the problem not me versus you
number eight is to be always honest first tip number nine is to make time
for each other and said number ten is to laugh a lot hope you guys enjoy this

100 thoughts on “10 Habits of Healthy Relationships – Healthy Lifestyle Tips”

  1. Most negative emotions come by fear and anger. Tony Robins talks a lot of about this. My advice to always get rid of these emotions is to show gratitude. When you become grateful towards someone else it's very hard to be upset with them.

    I definitly plan on doing a video on this in the future. I love that you are trying to make the world a better place, great info in your vids, they seem very thought out.

  2. Your videos seem to be repititive these days. Most subscribers won't care to watch multiple videos on habits, no matter how good they are.
    You should try to diversify into other topics, instead of going into depth.

  3. Great video, one thing I would like to see would be putting time stamps for each habit in the video description. Other than that nice work!

  4. You need to bring back the music that was making your vidoes amazing and intresting to watch, tbh thats why i watch your vidoes and when i saw that you stopped using it i just kept watching your old videos lol. anyway keep up the great work you are doing

  5. I came on her face twice whitout saying anything. She was really surprised. I shouldn't do thing like that at the mall..

  6. Although I couldnt agree more on the content, I dont really see these 10 aspects being habits. Im no native speaker, so I might be wrong when it comes to the term "Habit", but arent these 10 things more like 'aspects' or 'elements' of a healthy relationship? For instance, if "forgiving your partner" becomes a habit, I think that would be an UNhealthy relationship, wouldnt it?

  7. I miss your song. If your good without it that's great, but the thing is… ITS YOUR THEME! Every time i watch one of your videos I hear it in my ears and its a beautiful and inspirng sound to have. And get this… It correlates to you! Its the song that plays while you talk! Just listening to it can brighten someones spirit! Hope you put your theme back in your videos. Keep up the great work though!

  8. Hey @PracticalPsychology! First off, I really wanted to thank you for making these vidoes. You undoubtedly have great content, but I feel like there is too much information for me to apply at once. I was hoping that you could, at the end of the "Habits" series, make a few videos summarizing the whole playlist by explaining how to chronologically and strategically apply these techniques for a better life.

    Thank you once again for all your efforts and I hope that this feedback will be of value to your YouTube progress

  9. Communication – that's why my gf left me some time earlier. She simply didn't find the way to speak to me about important things. And I don't know why.

  10. Very nice video with great concepts in. I miss the music by the way, loved that really upbeat and happy music, can you bring it back? Keep up the good work man!

  11. Can you do a back to school video (example – how to motivate yourself, or how to get things started for school), if there is such a video can you please tell me the title?

  12. It's so great knowing others apply these habits too. These, and a few more, are also the foundations of my relationship.

  13. Best rule of advice, forgive but never forget. There's research that suggests if you forgive and forget, people will be more likely to wrong you, but if you forgive and don't forget, you're less likely to be wronged.

  14. I rarely comment on YouTube videos, especially if there are hundreds of comments already as I assume the creator is too busy to read/respond. But I wanted to say I really appreciate your videos, the style, the content and the uplifting manner in which they are delivered. You are doing a great job, and a service to us all.

  15. could you put the review so that one can view the points all together at once on the sreen so that one can screenshot them all together to save the tips?

  16. Nice video, but why did the drawn character that you would not respect have to be black while the respected characters where white?! 4:03

    It's not that I think that you are racist or anything like that… But these little things reinforce stereotypical ways of thinking and I don't think this is what you are trying to do :/

  17. Hey love the videos just an idea for a possible video, you've talked about getting rid of bad habits but what about addictions. I don't really suffer any but as examples like smoking, alcohol and video games. I would love to see something like that 🙂

  18. Do you have a video about your job/career? If not I think you should post one about what you do, how you like it, the ups and downs of it and how you got into doing that

  19. Nice video. I don’t really understand the “respect” part. How does that work? I don’t really feel the necessity of disrespecting someone unless someone does to me. Do you treat them badly, or how? I really don’t get it.

  20. I'm a little bothered at the image of the darker individual engaging in negative behavior. That's stereotypical to have the white guys being worthy of respect and the darker individual not being worthy of respect. I'm sure it wasn't blatant racism but it's the microaggressions that are problematic.

  21. I NEED your mindset. I am still figuring out how to stop wasting my time. I get anxiety when I think about how short life is. I am too aware of time passing and at the same time I am constantly torn between just enjoying whatever is out there (entertainment such as music, videos, movies, etc.) and also trying to work on my projects for college and trying to think long term. I feel like I'm not gonna get anywhere like that.

  22. I've become a little addicted to your video's. I watch them whenever they pop up. They're fun to watch and I find them packed with good information and great tips. Thanks!

  23. Hope your girlfriend doesn't watch this after your comment about how you would sometimes rather be making money than hanging out with her. Ouch.

  24. I learn a lot from your videos my life is becoming better through your messages. You are one of the best mentors of our generation

  25. This video was so helpful, it will give you a flashback to your past relationships that you should do this things instead. I did learn so much about it. A healthy relationships is a good thing and I love the last habit, Lough a Lot.

  26. Thank you so much. I don't know why I don't know these things but it's definitely something crucial to know in life. Thanks for taking the time to make this video simple too.

  27. Tip number 5 illustration didn't sit well with me… the gestures clothes then the content pretty prejudice and stereotypical!

  28. I'm certain the intent of your video is good, but it is obvious that you do not understand forgiveness vs. apology…Understanding the deeper meaning of these terms will help your next video..

  29. 1.commication,2 forgiveness,3.understanding, 4 understand the five language,5 respect,6.appreciate each other 7,Us vs the problem,8.honesty comes first,9 make time for each other,10.Laugh a lot

  30. Hello everyone! i want to publicly appreciate the effort of [email protected] for helping me hack my partner’s
