The Key to Happiness: Having Your Needs Met
Posted on 03/11/2019
Research has shown that happiness comes from having our needs met. We came across this article from Psych Central that explains the range of human needs we have.
At different times of our lives we can put the needs of others first. Most commonly, this is when we have children and they are dependant on us. It’s only natural that we put our dependants first but if a parent is sleep deprived, feels exhausted, emotionally and physically drained they can struggle during this period.
As many people are now seeking a ‘work-life balance’, in order to provide more time for themselves, it will be interesting to see how they choose to spend this extra time. Will it be spending more time with family, going to the gym, sleeping more, exercising regularly, going out for meals or the cinema or receiving services like beauty or holistic treatments. Good quality activities don’t need to cost anything; a walk in the crisp air or sunshine can make us feel ‘alive’ and more energised.
Identifying your needs, creating a plan of how to meet them and then putting that plan into action can only be done by you! What will you do to ensure your needs are being met this week?
