Love Yourself This Valentine's Day
Start off the day with deep breaths
Deep breaths help you put yourself in the moment and calm down your brain. Doing a few in the morning while focusing on the present will prepare you for the day ahead. It’s important to not get ahead of yourself each day and to enjoy every moment you have. Yesterday is over and tomorrow isn’t here yet, so live in the present.

Stretch in the morning
Taking deep breaths puts you in the right mindset for the day and pairing that with stretching can reduce your stress levels. Doing both together can prepare you for the day even more as well as increase blood flow for better concentration and give you more energy. Depending on the long day you have ahead of you, it never hurts to have more energy so you can cherish every moment.
Prepare a nutritious breakfast
This morning, and the mornings you have time, prepare yourself a healthy breakfast. Eggs are always a great option to keep you full longer and start your day off with some energy. If eggs aren’t your thing, fruit, yogurt and oatmeal are some other healthy options for you to kick off the day feeling refreshed.
Allow yourself to indulge in some sweets
While it’s important to eat healthily and keep yourself active, it still is Valentine’s Day, therefore it’s only right that you enjoy some sweets. Whether chocolates, brownies or ice cream is your weakness, treat yourself to some. Everything is good for you in moderation and calories don’t count on the holidays!
