5 Ways To Practice Self-Love for Valentines Day

Chances are that you are still working on those luscious goals and intentions you set for yourself at the beginning of the year. You are forming new habits and learning to put yourself first. Some days, you fall into old ways, and mumble curse words under your breath. Eating a packet of chips or giving in to your family’s demands seems easier than sticking to your guns. Who needs a flat tummy, anyway?

In those annoying moments, it’s important to remember why you started.

Why did you decide to embark on wellness journey?

Why is it important for you to go to bed at 10pm instead of 2am?

Why is it worthwhile to get some help around the house instead of doing everything yourself?
 
Knowing what you will do to reach your goals will get you started, but knowing your why will keep you going! So as an act of self-care, please remember your why! 

Speaking of Self-Care...


February is the perfect time to practice acts of self-care and self-love. Here are some tips to get you started...

  1. Tell your partner what you want. It isn’t rude or unladylike to give suggestions. Make a habit of sharing your deepest (and retail) desires with your partner in a fun, casual setting.

  2. If you want something, you don’t have to wait for your partner to get it for you. Spoil yourself! If you and your partner manage your finances together, have honest conversations with your partner about things that you would like to include in your budget.

  3. Gift giving is not reserved for romantic relationships! If it makes you happy to give and receive gifts around this time of year - celebrate occasions like Valentine’s day with your family or friends. Galentine’s day is celebrated annually on 13th February!

  4. Know your love language! Maybe you don’t care for elaborate gifts. Perhaps you appreciate affirmation, acts of service - or quality time. When you know your love language, you can practice self-love or communicate your needs to your partner.

  5. Remember, self-love or self-care doesn’t have to be expensive. Listening to your body, taking time off, running a bath or dressing up are all forms of self-love and self-care.

You don’t have to plan this self-care or self-love time in advance, be spontaneous, and find “you” moments in every day! Make a cup of tea, meditate or say NO when you need to.
