Celebrating Self Compassion This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love, friendship, and admiration. 

But love can come in many forms. It is not just about romance, but about showing care to those around you. 

Love can be shared between family, friends, peers, and within ourselves. 

With that being said, we encourage you to make room for self-compassion this month (and every month).

Here’s how…

Self Care

Having a spa day and pampering ourselves can be a great way to relax. You can eliminate distractions and refocus your attention on how you feel by treating yourself. 

You can light some scented candles, draw a bath, or read a book you love. 

Reach Out to Loved Ones

Connecting with the people who love us can be a way to give love back to ourselves.

Reminding ourselves of the people who are there for us can reinforce our self-love.

You can take a moment to call an old friend or video chat with a family member who makes you smile. 

Do What You Love

Doing more of the things you love can give you a healthy outfit to explore your interests. You can either participate in activities you know you love or take the opportunity to try something new.
