Valentine’s Day may call to mind fatty steaks and rich chocolates, but the truth is heavy food and overeating leaves most of us feeling slow and sleepy. Not a good way to love on yourself!
Try pampering yourself with bone broth soup, or a fantastically colorful salad, a roasted pan of cruciferous vegetables, a delectable dark chocolate mousse, a cheesy frittata, yummy mint hummus, candied walnuts, dill salmon and quinoa pilaf…
The possibilities are endless, although it may seem like you’re relegated to choosing between a loaded baked potato and a Caesar salad.
Get creative. Get loving. The act of cooking for yourself is itself a declaration of your own value - treat your body kindly.
Swivel down into the most comfortable spot in your home (bring yourself some of that herbal tea and a square of dark chocolate) and let yourself get lost for a little while.
This list is certainly not exhaustive.
Singing by yourself? Totally restorative.
Stretching out on the floor and staring through a skylight? Magical.
Practicing re balancing your energy through strategic breathing exercises? Priceless. (YouTube breathing exercises)
There are endless ways you can show yourself love, and that’s especially important to remember on Valentine’s Day.
