12 Powerful Ways to Love Yourself from the Inside Out!

February has long been a month of romance. It is the traditional day lovers express their feelings for each other by sending loving cards and giving flowers and chocolates. However, you do not need to wait for your loved one to feel special this month—instead, why not take the time to romance yourself? Here are 12 powerful ways you can give your mind, body, and spirit some TLC.

  1. relaxing_woman_bath_hot_tub_candles_bubbles_sleep_picAromatherapy Essential oils: To unwind at the end of the day, indulge in a warm to hot bath using essential oils of lavender, ylang-ylang, basil, sage, or orange. If your energy is lagging and you want to revive yourself, add essential oils of lemon and grapefruit or bergamot to the bathwater.
  2. Massage: Book a massage within the next seven days. Ask your massage therapist to add lavender or sandalwood essential oils to help you relax even further.
  3. Exercise: Go for a swim, run, brisk walk, rebound, or dance to your heart’s content. Your body will love you for it.
  4. Sleep: Catch up on some sleep and take the time for either a nap or sleeping in an extra hour.
  5. Infrared Sauna: There are many detoxing and healing aspects of infrared saunas. If you have not tried an infrared sauna yet, this might be a new adventure for you.
  6. Read a good book: Nothing like cozying up with a great non-stop page turner, a warm blanket, and some herbal tea on a snowy, cold February day. Take a trip to the nearest bookstore or library see what catches your attention and just relax and read a good book.
  7. Journal: Spend 20 minutes or more writing your private thoughts and feelings in a journal. Journal writing can reduce stress, help clarify your feelings and connect with your heart.
  8. Call a friend: If life's daily stresses are getting to you, call a good friend and just chat it out. A good heart to heart with a friend might be all you need.
  9. Learn something new: Learning new skills can boost your confidence and get you away from behavior patterns that do not serve you. You might discover a new talent, meet new people, and best of all you can have some fun while learning something new.
  10. woman_young_meditate_nature_calm_relax_picMeditate: Meditation is a way of stilling the mind and bringing calm and mental focus into your life. You can either listen to meditative music or sit quietly and just breathe.
  11. Flowers: Why wait for someone else to buy you flowers? Why not buy them for yourself this month? Flowers are not only beautiful for décor but they can help boost your mood. Put them where you can see them every day.
  12. Movie: Watch an uplifting movie either curled up under a warm blanket at home or at the cinema. Movies can inspire and uplift us. They are not only entertaining; they are also a great stress buster.

Set aside one day each week for the next month and choose at least one self-care activity per week to enjoy. Ask yourself, "What is the most loving thing I can do for myself today?" You can plan ahead or just be spontaneous. Do what feels right for you. Most importantly, remember to have fun!
