Ways to Celebrate Valentines Day – (and they aren’t what you think).

Ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, (and they aren’t what you think).

Ways to celebrate valentines day

It’s February and we are inundated with notions of chocolate, flowers, bling, and extravagant weekendsĀ  ‘reconnect with the one you love’.

But what if we pass on the chocolate and cards and approach the day (or the whole month) with a focus on connecting with the people we care about. Not just your significant other, if you have one, but your best friend that you never have a chance to talk to for more than 4 minutes before a baby demands attention. Or maybe your favorite auntie or your sister. Share some quality time with someone you care for.

If you can’t set aside that much time with everyone’s busy schedules, maybe drop off a cake from your favorite bakery, or send them a message. Appreciate someone, just say, “Thank you. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate what you do for me. You make my life happier.”

Watch a video and treat your partner to a hand or foot massage. Give the gift of massage. You can pick up a gift certificate right here.

Bonus: Connect with YOU. Not everyone schedules regular massage, and that’s okay. But if it’s been awhile, maybe it’s time to practice a little self-care and get yourself a massage, too. The best gift you can give the people you love is a happy, healthy you.
