Just when you’ve gotten yourself back on track after indulging over the holidays, here comes the chocolate and wine festival we call Valentine’s Day (or Galentine’s Day if you’re celebrating with your best girlfriends). Can you still celebrate without derailing all your good intentions for healthy living?
Here are 5 Ways To Celebrate V/Galentine’s Day Without Breaking Your Diet:
- Get Physical
Share a walk, foot massage, or a snuggle with your favorite person or pet. Touch is an essential part of being human and we need to give and receive it often.
- Spread The Love
Many people feel isolated and alone all year round. Brighten someone’s day by reaching out to visit elderly or infirmed in your area. Or contact an old friend you’ve lost touch with to let them know you care.
- Diffuse Love and Peace
Add your favorite essential oil to your diffuser and create an atmosphere of serenity. Choose traditional rose, lavender for calm, or ylang-ylang for sensuality.
- Have An Appreciation Party
Tell your partner, child, friend, AND yourself something you really appreciate about them. Look them right in the eye when you do it and you’ll both feel fully sated with calorie-free appreciation!
- Cook Up A Seasonal Treat
Set the table with linen and candles and prepare a simple, but beautiful and delicious meal of seasonal veggies and clean protein. Trying a little artful plating or serving your food in courses for an elegant and pampered feeling.
Wishing you a very Happy Valentine’s Day from everyone at BeWell!
