For some, a date night for one sounds dreadful, but for others, it looks blissful. As we head towards Valentine's Day, perhaps you are wondering what does this day mean to you? Is it relevant? Whether you are single or in a relationship this Valentine's Day, it's the perfect opportunity to take a moment to draw your attention inwards and focus on self-love. Rather than feeling like you need to have a partner to express your love and affection, why not tap into your self- love for your source of happiness. We all can feel the love in ourselves.
Loves lives within all of us, all of the time. However, it is a choice to feel it. We have opportunities every day to feel frustrated, happy or sad in reaction to circumstances. It's always a choice. I touched on self- love in last week's post as an element in maintaining a healthy mindset and how this impacts your skin. Self- love will look different for everyone. There is no 'one size fits all'. But in a nutshell, it comes down to:
Botani Products For Your Date Night
How do I need to take care of myself, so I feel my most radiant and happy? The more you practice drawing on your inner resources to grow your happiness and joy (rather than looking for external material things or other people to be responsible for your happiness) the more you're self- love will increase. So this Valentine's Day let's take the focus on needing to be with a partner to express the love that is within you and focus on your love. Why not have a 'date night for one' doing what makes you happy and that fills up that self-love cup. So what does a date night for one look like? Well, that depends on what makes you happy. We all different and will have different ways to bring our energy inwards.
Radiant And Happy
It could be a guided meditation, followed by a lovely soak in the bath with baths salts and giving your legs a relaxing massage with some nourishing Coconut Glow Body Oil. Or wrap yourself up in a big fluffy robe, getting a cup of Pukka's 'love' tea, and some good quality dark chocolate. We love Pumpy Jackson fructose free and refined sugar-free, dark chocolate and grabbing an empowering and uplifting book, like Melissa Ambrosini's Mastering your Mean Girl and curling up for a few hours of reading. Or even making the time to do an at-home facial. Whatever self-love and care are for you, make the time this week to grow your love so it may overflow from you.
