Fall In Love With You This Valentines

the body shop

 

Valentine’s Day, Saint Valentine’s Day or The Feast of Saint Valentines, is a day dedicated to showing love and affection

The focus is always on another person, and your love for them

Gifts of flowers and chocolates, along with a card has become tradition since the 14th century

But did you ever think that, you are someone special in your life?

How about your love for yourself?

Self care and self love is something I believe is really important for everybody

Learning to accept yourself for who you are is the most important step to self love

Every body has beautiful qualities both physically, and emotionally which make them special

Self care is something we can all practise to help maintain our own wellness

Self care this Valentines could be in a number of ways

Whether you are single or in a relationship, the principles are the same

Take time to run yourself a nice bath and relax

Or take some time out of your day to read a book, or your favourite magazine

Having quality you time is a great way to make you fall in love with yourself

Taking care of your body will also help you feel good

After recently starting my Slimming World journey I am so much more conscious of what I eat and drink

It really has made a difference in how I feel physically

Using products on your skin which you know help nourish, will encourage you to feel good

I recently got this gorgeous set from The Body Shop and the products are so nourishing

There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking some “me” time occasionally, or even daily

What ever fits into your lifestyle

Even just an hour every now and then can help to recharge, reset, and re-energise you

This is not only important for your own well-being but for those around you

Happy Valentine’s Day beautiful!

Let me know in the comments below about your self care routine. Do you practise any self care?

    Every night I treat myself to body shop products. Since using them, all my itchy red skin has gone! I use the chamomile make up remover, the ginger shampoo and conditioner and every night I have a bath with one of the body shop’s bubble bath. At the moment I’m loving the almond one. So this is my self care routine!

  41. Caroline cummins
    15/02/2019 / 22:06

    I’ve started just to pause several times a day, watch the birds, find appreciation for things, take a moment, almost meditating. It’s helping improve my frame of mind in general.

    By the time I have done everything that needs doing I have very little energy left so I have to stick to the basics of shower and go 🙁

  47. Vinny Reed
    16/02/2019 / 10:38

  48. Angela Kelly
    16/02/2019 / 11:27

    I always make sure I take ten minutes for myself everyday, preferably when I come in from work. It helps me destress and profit from my evvenings.

  49. Jane Pope
    16/02/2019 / 11:59

    I try….but could probably try harder….

  50. Claudia Vogt

  53. shelly
    16/02/2019 / 17:29

    What’s ‘Me’ time? I certainly could do with some, but with 4 kids, rarely happens!

  54. Fiona jk42
    16/02/2019 / 20:10

    I don’t really and I know that I should, but it’s hard not to feel guilty about taking time for myself

  55. Heather Hibbert
    17/02/2019 / 00:01

    I’m actually awful for self care especially since being pregnant, the only self care I currently practice is applying bio oil 😂

  56. Angela Sandford
    17/02/2019 / 11:00

    I have fibromyalgia and M.E and I practise meditation to help ease pain and help me relax.

  58. Ruth Harwood
    17/02/2019 / 12:13

    My method of self-care at the moment is staying away from my family, who have hurt and abused me in the most unforgivable way x

  59. Nikki Hayes
    17/02/2019 / 15:31

  63. Hayley Colburn
    19/02/2019 / 01:27

    A lot more of late, I probably should have done more prior to now but we learn from our mistakes I guess, I have a morning and evening cleansing routine and have started taking certain vitamins and minerals, particularly evening primrose oil which has loads of health and beauty benefits

  64. ADEINNE TONNER
    19/02/2019 / 20:25

  65. Katie Skeoch
    20/02/2019 / 08:21

  75. Susan Willshee
    22/02/2019 / 20:17

    I’ve never been very good at ‘self care’. It’s so easy to spend time caring for the rest of the family so I’m afraid ‘myself’ comes a long way down the list

  76. Caroline
    23/02/2019 / 21:00

    I do yoga for 10 minutes twice a day and go for a walk in the park about 4 times a week, which I find very relaxing.

  80. Kerry H
    24/02/2019 / 22:06

    The toddler can be a bit overwhelming now that there’s no naps but hopefully I will get some time to myself in the near future!

    28/02/2019 / 14:35

  106. Catherine Gregory
