5 Ways to Truly Love Yourself this Valentine’s Day
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, there is no better time than the present to give back to the people you love. While many of us consider our spouses, partners, friends and family, it’s also so important to celebrate yourself on this day of love. From sex tips for self-care to taking yourself out on a date, here are the top 5 ways to truly love yourself this Valentine’s Day.
1. Start the Day with Positive Affirmations
Affirmations are positive statements that you tell yourself to help you overcome negative thinking patterns. When repeated often, your mind will start to believe them and create the positive change you want to see in yourself. Start your morning off on the right foot with 3 affirmations such as ““I am confident”, “I am beautiful”, “I believe in who I am”.
Whether you’re struggling with intimacy issues or self confidence, affirmations can help you overcome these challenges and allow you to work towards loving yourself in a more wholesome way.
2. Practice Self-Care
Self-care is another great way to love yourself this Valentine’s Day and can be accomplished in any way that brings you a sense of happiness, peace, or excitement. Some of the best ways to practice self-care is by running a warm bubble bath, cozying up with a book, or perhaps even stimulating your senses with one of your sex toys. As for the last example of self-care, treat yourself to a new lube to maximize your pleasure and get the most out of your self-care experience. Always read the product label before you use it to make sure it’s the right lube for you.
3. Take Yourself out on a Date
To switch things up this Valentine’s Day, take yourself out to a restaurant you’ve been waiting to try or a new movie that just hit the cinema. If the cliche dating spots are not your thing, try out something new like a cooking class, a spa day, a museum tour or even a dancing lesson. No matter what you do, enjoy the moments spent in your own company.
4. Buy Yourself a Special Something
There’s no reason to wait around for that special someone to spoil you this Valentine’s Day. Go out and buy yourself a special something that will make you feel good. Flowers, chocolates, or even a new outfit can all make you feel deeply loved on this day.
5. Exercise Your Body
Sometimes, the best way to truly love yourself this Valentine’s Day is by putting your heart and lungs to work. Get your sweat on at a drop in spin studio or hit a new weightlifting goal at the gym. No matter how you move, you’ll feel so much better after it’s done.
