Are you single, in a happy relationship, or in a long-term relationship that has lost its spark? For some people, Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to celebrate love and romance but for others it may be a reminder of longed-for companionship or a long-lasting relationship that has gone a little stale around the edges.
Here are our top tips to nurture relationships with self and others in the month of love and romance.
Single ladies. Put your hands up!
You may be rocking the single life or wishing for a committed relationship this Valentine’s Day. If the latter, it’s time to invest in some self-love.
If you are in a happy relationship:
For those of you that have lost that connection.
Ah, life has a funny way of diminishing the flame that once burnt so bright. The long hours at work, responsibilities towards family members young and old, the change in identity as couples evolve after having children all affect the quality and quantity of communication needed to sustain a healthy, happy relationship. Perhaps it’s time to reconnect and rekindle your relationship.
Being happy and settled in yourself and your relationships is a key part to overall health and wellbeing and vitality so make sure you prioritise you and your relationships this month!
