Healthy Ways to Celebrate a Month of Love
What does a candy-free February look like? Pretty darn good! Try some of these non-food gift ideas:
The American Heart Association suggests a gift from the heart, such as a poem or love letter. Choose a favorite poem or write what you feel. Write or type it on beautiful paper (see some options on Etsy.) In between relationships? Write yourself a loving, “non-negotiable” list – all the things you will never put up with in a relationship ever again. Or write a friend or loved one who has been an inspiration or support in your life.
Savor the moments in pictures. Do you have a ton of pictures on your phone but rarely print them out? This is the perfect time to remember your loved ones with the thoughtful gift of photos. I love the app Groovebook – for $2.99 a month you can upload up to 100 pictures and Groovebook automatically sends you a photo album each month! Or go for a year of love with a photo calendar – apps like Shutterfly make it easy!
Spend a night with no electronics or digital distractions! Make a fire, bundle up and go for a walk, or have a few friends over and serve some heart-healthy treats with sparkling water and raspberries.
Instead of reaching for something sweet, chocolaty or gooey this month, try some of these ideas for indulging the ones you love - and that includes YOU!
