Valentine’s Day is a day to love and be loved, but like most holidays, Valentine’s Day can also be a day in which candies are consumed and health risks are overlooked in the name of indulgence. To keep you happy and healthy on this special day dedicated to love, here are a few Valentine’s Day health hacks that will help keep you on track:
Sugar Free Sweets
The candies, chocolates, and other miscellaneous sweets of Valentine’s Day are much of what compose this special holiday, but it is also what leaves Valentine’s Day such a cause for concern, so try looking for your favorite chocolatey alternative to sugar loaded sweets so you can enjoy all of the deliciousness without the sugar.
Valentine’s Day Outings
Holiday eating plus not getting enough exercise does not often equate to happy and healthy. More often it can mean not feeling too well the next day. In addition to keeping sugar intake in check, you should also aim to spend more time outside exerting a little bit of energy this Valentine’s Day. Try going on a nice stroll, romantic bike rides, or soothing water activities.
Remember to Give and Receive Love
Mental health should be at the forefront of your mind just as much as physical health, and that is precisely why giving and receiving love on Valentine’s Day is so important. Giving and receiving love is the understanding that you are loved and worthy of love, and also capable of reciprocating this emotion toward another. Remember to love this season, but more important remember that you are loved. Now just find a good way to express it and you are all set for a fantastic Valentine’s Day.
Whether you are spending this special day with friends, family, or that someone special, try to always be mindful of the reason we are all celebrating. Love is something very special, if not the most special thing there is and until next time, be happy, healthy and beautiful!
