Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to show people how much we love them. It's also the ideal opportunity to show yourself some love and appreciation.
Love is the most powerful force in the universe, it is something that transcends time and space. It can be found everywhere and in many forms like family love, friendship love, self-love and romantic love. As the famous Beatles song goes “All you need is love” and this is indeed true. Your highest vibration, your essence at heart - who you really are - boils down to pure unconditional love.
It is important to recognize that full connection to self-love will enhance our mindset, guide our decisions and help us navigate through life with more clear intentions. Love also brings with it immense power to create unlimited possibilities for ourselves.
Practicing self-care and self-love can be a powerful tool for mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. Self-care is about taking the time to sort out your mind, heart, and daily routines in order to remain healthy. Through expressing love for yourself and taking time for healing the unbalanced parts of your life, you can restore and renew your energy.
Self-care is also about setting boundaries with yourself to protect your mental health. It could look like making time for creativity and fun activities that bring you joy or spending time alone recharging your energy by journaling or meditating.
Self-love is embraced through conscious practices of kindness towards yourself which could include positive affirmations or acts of service directed towards yourself such as getting a massage or buying yourself a little something nice as an acknowledgement of how hard you work every day.
This Valentine’s Day, take some time to give yourself the unconditional love and respect you deserve. Make sure you're nourishing your mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing for a healthier balanced lifestyle going forward. Whether you plan to spend it alone or with loved ones, let this day remind you that true love starts from within!
