Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired

This helps us to stay in touch with our feelings and needs - seems to me.

Sometimes the onset of anxiety or a sudden drop in mood can be traced to our having forgotten to eat so our blood sugar levels are off kilter.

Sometimes we may be carrying a resentment, or feeling lonely, or we are just too tired.
Taking a little time out from our busy day to ask ourselves if we are feeling too Hungry, Angry, Lonely, or Tired, gets us in touch with our feelings.
When we know what we are feeling
we can make choices and take the appropriate action to get our needs for food, companionship, or rest, met.

Being too hungry, angry, lonely, or tired,
are conditions that leave us more vulnerable
to the temptations that lead us away from our journey of development.
Part of the journey is learning to pay attention to these inner signals.
Practice appropriate ways to meet our needs.
Resolve issues that will enhance our growth into wholeness.

When are you most Vulnerable?
