15 Questions to Explore And Nourish Your Needs

Aristotle quote.3

Last week we explored the things we like — and don’t like — on a daily basis. Continuing with the self-discovery theme, here are more questions to help you uncover your needs and nourish them.

Importantly, when you’re thinking about responding to your needs, remember that there’s a time for everything — a time to browse social media sites and a time to get outside, no computer, no phone.

  1. What would feel like a miracle right now?
  2. How can I give myself this miracle?
  3. What am I feeling right now?
  4. Who are the people I’d like to spend more (and less) time with?
  5. What kind of relationship would I like to have with myself?
  6. How can I nourish each of my needs this week or this month?
  7. What “should” statements are wearing me down? (As in I should wear this. I should weigh myself once a week. I should go out. I should say yes to this. I should say no to that.)
  8. What “should” can I drop right now, this instant?
  9. What soothes me?
  10. How can I make today more joyful for myself by adding or removing one small thing?
  11. What resources can I turn to — people, books, websites — that can help to support my self-care?
  12. If I loved myself unconditionally, how would I spend my days?
  13. How can I work with my natural rhythms?
  14. How can I give myself a genuine break today? (In other words, what does a relaxing break look like for me?)
  15. Our bodies are a miracle. How can I honor that today?
