Tip – April 5

By Covenant Family Solutions

A tip of the day to help you thrive

Human behavior is goal driven and intended to meet our basic needs. When we can’t do things like we’ve always done them it makes it more difficult to get those needs met. However, it’s important to remember there is more than one way to meet the same need. For example, if you get your need for connection met though sitting down for coffee with a few friends each week, arrange a time when those friends can all video conference to talk and catch up over a cup of joe. Maybe even spruce up the place where you make the call from to look more like a coffee shop. While this won’t be the same as meeting in person, it can create a similar feeling and help you to meet your basic needs. Be creative with this and you’ll find yourself adapting to the new normal.
