insidewink co-founders, Jean Trebek & Alison Martin,  share their ideas on “nurture” and how the concept relates to all areas of life.

“May” we ask…

… what does the word “nurture” conjure up for you?  

A sense of relaxation and joy?

Or possibly some guilt and lack?

Nurture is a verb and a noun defined as: to care for and encourage the growth and/or the development of someone or something.

“Nurture” plays a significant role in how a person moves in the world… if one has been cared for and encouraged chances are they will naturally be a caring/nuturing person. But if that hasn’t been the case, the good news is that “nurture” can be learned and fostered. We can adopt new ways to nurture ourselves even when it wasn’t in abundant expression when we were little.

Right now, we are at a point of many challenges. If we can care for each other and nurture respect and compassion, we will ultimately be better off.

On top of outward nurturing, we can also take time to inwardly nurture ourselves. With so much growth and activity in life… we call you to take time to replenish. 

“May” we ask you try this?

  • Nuture your mind with affirmative thoughts and new ideas.
  • Nuture your body with plenty of water, rest, healthy food, and exercise.
  • Nuture your soul with nature, kind acts, deep breaths and some time to be still and quiet.
