Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! I know this holiday is generally split into two sides:
Those who love it
Those who hate it
I can understand both sides, but me being me, I definitely love it more than hate it 🙂 But even if you are not a fan, I think it’s a good day to dial in and see where you can add a little more love to your life. And no, love doesn’t mean searching through every dating app there is to try and find “love”. What it means is looking around and finding love and appreciation in your current lives and day-to-day tasks.
Instead of looking in the mirror and pointing out everything you don’t like, take a minute to appreciate what you have and what you like. It makes for a much more enjoyable experience.
Rather than thinking about everything you can’t do (yet!), focus, embrace & appreciate what you CAN do.
Instead of getting upset at traffic on your way to work, find your favorite song and jam out.
Instead of dreading your workout because of X, Y, & Z, show your body some love for all it can do- and the mere fact that you CAN workout. Because that’s an amazing thing.
If you’re holding on to a grudge about something (work, argument, etc.), try letting it go and moving on. Forgiveness is a wonderful thing (for all parties involved!).
Rather than dwelling on what’s bothering your or what you’re stressed about, try and shift your focus to things that are in your control. It’s energy much better spent.
And, lastly, show yourself some love- treat yourself with kind words and thoughts, grab your favorite coffee at the store in the morning, treat yourself to lunch, a pedicure, a bubble bath, your favorite workout…
If you’re looking for a workout, here are a few fun themed workouts I’ve created over the years:
V-Sits and Leg Lifts & Planks, Oh My!
The Love Your Body
Hope you all have a LOVELY day 😉
