It is always worth checking in with this triangle of needs to make sure that your personal needs are being met by the things you "choose" to put in your life.
Sometimes we can feel a bit disjointed but just not sure why, this triangle by Maslow really does make things simple and can help you identify areas for you to work on including more of in your life.
Some people feel this dis-jointedness as a kind of craving. Some as physical pain and some "like myself" as foggy headed ness as well as pain and sometimes mania. Normally the area Ive forgotten to work on is the self nourishment part "having fun" and the pain is a wake up call telling me to SLOW down and enjoy life !
Its really important to have a balance in your life and by ensuring your Human needs are being met you can live a happier and healthier life.
Write down what is important to you, what you like doing, what you would "like" to do, what you "want" to do and what you "have" to do, then make sure your not doing all the "have's" first, you are allowed to slow down and have a day off you know !
So if by seeing Maslows triangle you realise your forgetting something then get onto it, right now and don't forget to do a gratitude list before bedtime reminding yourself of all the good things you have to be grateful for to help you get a peaceful nites sleep !
