Wellness Wednesday
Managing Conflict and Tension

Living in close quarters 24 hours a day can be stressful and that stress can lead to conflict. One of the best things you can do to avoid conflict is to anticipate stress and manage it by spending time doing things you enjoy, talking to loved ones or practicing mindfulness. We all manage stress differently, so it’s important to identify the activity that works best for you. 

Conflict is a natural part of any relationship and when managed properly it can be healthy and even strengthen relationships. Here are a few techniques we suggest when navigating conflict.

-    Pick your battles and have a constructive discussion about one issue at a time
-    Be assertive and communicate the problem clearly
-    Replace “you” language with “I” language
-    Listen to understand, not to respond 
-    Focus on resolving the issue, not winning the conflict
-    Think of the conflict as an opportunity to learn something new about the other person
-    Ask the other person to help you find a solution rather than demanding an outcome
-    Celebrate agreement

Visit these resources for more information on how to constructively navigate conflict.

Tips for Canvas

  • It’s a good practice to first save longer discussion and assignment responses in a Word document (or Notepad) before pasting it into your Canvas assignment. This avoids losing your work in case of any kind of glitch during the submission process. If that happens, you’ll still have a back-up of all your hard work.

  • The Canvas Calendar shows all your assignments and events for all your Canvas courses in one place.

Tips for Web Conferencing

  • Use a headset with a microphone if possible. Headsets can help to eliminate echoing and feedback problems.

  • Mute your microphone unless you are actively talking
  • "Mute" or disable video if not absolutely needed (bandwidth reduction)
  • Use your phone and use dial in options if your computer audio isn’t working.

  • Assume you are always on camera and that you are always audible (even if you think you're muted or your video is disabled)
