More on Needs

Nurture Yourself!

I know I need extra nurturing during this time of year. I get stressed out so easily during this time. I am trying very hard to make sure my needs are being met. Otherwise, I fall apart a bit, and I am not much fun to live with.  I was going over one of my lists that I have randomly hanging around the house and I thought I would share it on here.

All People Need:

Rest

Exercise

Healthy Food

Learning & Growth

Fun

Creativity

Purpose

Companionship

Honesty

Empathy

Support

Meaning

Contribution

 

Basic Needs We All Have:

Autonomy

Peace

Celebration

Laughter

Integrity

Air, Food

Physical Nurturing

Movement

Play

Interdependence

Reassurance

Spiritual Communion

Love

Respect

Trust

Understanding

Meaning

Emotional Safety

Inspiration

Self Worth

 

Check In With Yourself:

I try to check in with myself to see what needs are being met, and which ones are not. Then, I can determine what I need to do in order to get my needs met, or I can decide that today, certain needs will not be met, and I am ok with that. Tomorrow I will look again to see what I need to work on so  that some of my needs will be met. I know that I have a strong need for connection and for feeling I have a purpose. I am working on those in my life right now. I tend to “check out” when things get overwhelming, and therefore, my need for connection does not get met, nor my need for purpose.

I am hoping that this website will be one source for getting those needs met. My intention is to build a nurturing community that will be supportive and loving for all that choose to be here.
