Love is in the air this month. It’s being thrown at us from all angles with fast-approaching Valentine’s Day around the corner. But in most cases, we’re told to profess our love for our husbands, girlfriends, partners, wives, husbands, boyfriends and children. And as much as we love doting on others, we love treating ourselves too, and this time of year we have yet to see a Hallmark card that says “I love me!” until now!
So take these last few cold months of winter as an opportunity to appreciate, love and treat yourself –and get out of that winter rut.
We’ve put together a 3 month program that will have you feeling the love by the time the tulips start blooming and the snow starts melting!
Month 1: Love your body
– Every morning this month, look in the mirror, smile and appreciate one thing that you love about your body. It can be anything from “I love how strong my arms are” to “My butt looks fabulous today.” This might feel silly but it will put you in a better mood for the rest of the day.
– Book yourself a massage. It doesn’t have to be a fancy or lavish affair. You can even go to the local nail salon and get a 10 minute back rub. A full spa day would be pretty great though!
– Commit an hour each week to doing a fun new work out. You can take free yoga classes online, attend a cycling class, go for a jog with a friend, or even dance in your underwear!
