Spice, spice, baby!
I really never liked Valentine's Day. But this year, I have a bit of a different outlook.
2020 was NOT kind. So yes, we should be focusing on love every day and not just once a year when everything is pink and heart-shaped but dang it, even if it is cliché, we deserve every day we can get to celebrate silly "holidays" and be happy and spread love.
So let's take advantage and spice it up. Both figuratively and literally!
A healthy lifestyle includes healthy relationships and mindsets as well.
Here are a few ways to improve those this Valentine's Day!
✨The Figurative Spice✨
In any relationship, it is incredibly important to understand the other person and maintain an open line of communication. This goes for friendships, parental relationships, and romantic ones.
One amazing tool for that is learning love languages!
The love languages are:
physical touch | gifts | quality time | words of affirmation | acts of service
These are the different ways in which we naturally give and receive love. And more often than not, your love language is different than those you love.
And loving in a way that's not natural to you can be a bit...different.
When you don't have love languages, your relationship can feel a lot like a difficult puzzle.
Everything feels right- you're in love and you enjoy your person, but there's a disconnect. You start to get upset and resentful because you're doing so much to serve your partner but it feels like they don't appreciate any of it.
That's not true. They just don't know how to receive what you're giving.
I challenge you this Valentine's
