This Valentine’s Day remember the most important person in your life—you. When we first give ourselves the love that we need, it flows to everyone around us. It can make us more relaxed, productive, confident, and energetic. It can give us sense of peace and direction.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to start incorporating doing something special every day just for you! Get yourself a treat or do something that makes you smile. It doesn’t have to be expensive; just something that makes you feel special such as:
Buying a small pendant/charm that has meaning to you
Getting a soothing massage for your body and mind
Taking a relaxing bubble bath
Going for a nice, long, enjoyable walk
Hanging a positive message on your mirror
Starting a routine of journaling your thoughts every day
Taking a yoga class
Volunteering to help others
Getting a manicure
Starting a project that you’ve wanted to
Getting yourself a bouquet of tulips
Signing up for a class that you’re interested in
Reading a positive book
Letting go of a negative thought pattern
Talking to a friend & catch up
Making yourself a vibrantly colorful salad
Whatever it is, do something that you enjoy! Our lives can become so busy with work and activities that we forget to take time to simply ‘be’ and that’s usually when we need it the very most.
There are so many emotional and physical benefits of taking care of yourself. Our self-esteem improves allowing us to feel more in control of our lives, we’re able to respond more positively to situations that arise, our stress levels decrease which helps our bodies, and our relationships are enhanced with others.
When we feel happy and positive, we attract more of it! Happy Valentine’s Day!
