Just as toxic people absorb energy, nutric people recharge it. They’re the kinds of individuals who leave a trail of good vibes, joy, and motivation in your day.

Nutric people are capable of making others shine and feel better. They don’t only apply this attitude to the fun and leisure activities, but they’re good companions in any situation. Indeed, whether you’re having a bad time or laughing your head off, nutric people recharge your batteries.

Traits of nutric people

The values, attitudes, and actions of nutric people mean they’re great company. Let’s take a look at the most significant features of this personality.

1. They actively listen

Nutric people don’t step on you or override you when you speak. Unlike toxic people, who try and make their own dramas the center of the conversation, they’ll make an effort to listen to you. In fact, they’ll only ever interrupt to make sure they correctly understand what you’re telling them.

2. They’re empathic

This is the central axis of the way we interact with others. Unsurprisingly, nutric people find it easy to put themselves in your place. Not only that, but they make an effort to manage their empathy to help others.

3. They’re decisive

This is another way in which they’re completely opposite to toxic people. They don’t seek problems, but solutions. They leave a small space for complaining and venting, but they’ll help you take action to resolve what’s worrying you.

4. They’re optimistic

Their attitude encourages you to see the bright side of things. Their intention isn’t to make you conform but to be motivated to revel in the positive events in your life and help you deal with negative ones.

They don’t push the dramatic out of the way so you don’t bother them, but to lighten your mood.

5. They have a sense of humor

Laughter can be a wonderful tool. They don’t just laugh for the sake of laughing, but they impregnate the time you spend together with good humor, fun, and positive energy. In addition, they know how to take a joke and don’t get offended.

6. Criticism is a tool, not a weapon

Nutric people are perfectly capable of seeing the flaws in you, in others, and in themselves. However, their criticism is geared toward the constructive, not the destructive. In addition, they know how to express it without hurting anyone’s feelings.

7. They live in the present

Although the past helps them to learn and improve, they don’t allow it to take over their present. Indeed, nutric people know that dwelling on everything that happened (or thinking about what’s to come) will mean life will pass them by without them even noticing it.

They’re not a cure-all

Nutric people deserve more attention and care than those who try to poison your mind and hog your energy. However, remember that nutric people aren’t the solutions to your problems: they’ll only help you along the way.

Finally, if you experience any type of psychological suffering, don’t hesitate in seeking the help of a professional. They’ll be able to provide you with the necessary tools to face your problem independently.
