Benefits of Positive Communication on Your Mental Health

Communication has been a fundamental aspect of our human existence since the beginning of time. 

It was through speech that God spoke the world into existence, and it's goes without saying that speech has had a monumental impact of the course of events of our human history ever since.

But what some forget about the communication they have seen raise and destroy civilizations is the impact that it had on the individual prior to the collective. Communication impacts us first.

It impacts us personally on a mental, physical, and spiritual level that prompts us to think, speak, and act.

And the same concept of communication that can better us, is also responsible for the detrimental factors that lead to depression, anxiety, anger, bitterness, etc. 

Here are 5 ways that positive communication can benefit your mental health - 

1. Builds Trust

Honesty and transparency are key ingredients to building trust. In any relationship, people desire to understand the intentions behind each interaction. Honest and transparent communication help reveal the intentions of the heart and the inner workings of the mind thereby building trust. 

2. Facilitates Problem Solving

Positive communication seeks to aid. It seeks to unravel mysteries and bring to light truth. 

3. Helps to Avoid Conflicts and Misunderstandings

The Bible states "Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad." Proverbs 12:25 

Speech should uplift and encourage. It should motivate and heal. Even in moments when one needs to teach and correct, speech should always be prompted and crafted with an intentionally positive objective in mind. 

4. Facilitates the Development of Virtue

Positive communication reveals truth. It seeks to understand the mysteries of our human nature and in doing so leads to the development of one of the greatest virtues - wisdom. 

5. Builds Deeper Connections  

Positive communication can either separate or build. It can either tear down or revive. When words are spoken out of a genuine and sincere disposition, they build deeper connections with the recipient of those words.
