We've put together some ways you can celebrate wellness during Valentine's, so you can treat your body too.

The holidays are a time to celebrate, spend time with loved ones and treat yourself. Valentine’s Day is no exception. Yet, amidst all the celebrations, it can be easy to overindulge and forget to be kind to yourself. So we’ve put together some ways you can celebrate wellness during Valentine’s, so you can treat yourself and your body too.

Cook a scrumptious meal

Whether it’s cooking for yourself, your partner or your entire family; cooking a healthy, delicious meal is an easy way to show your body some love. With Valentine’s being on a Friday this year, it can be easy to ring the local chippy and call it a day – but putting effort into your food makes it taste even better (we promise). Swap out the junk food for something good for you, and you’ll love yourself even more. We regularly put yummy, healthy meals on our Instagram stories, so give us a follow for some inspiration!

Re-evaluate your goals

With the New Year long behind us and the February blues out in full force, your resolutions may be long forgotten. If you can relate, don’t beat yourself up about it; less than 1 in 10 people keep their January goals for the entire year. So, instead of giving up on your goals, re-evaluate them. Go back to your resolutions and pick the easiest one to do this week, and squeeze it in where you can. It’ll give you a big boost of motivation, and you’ll feel proud that you’ve completed it.

Move your body

Getting in some exercise is the most love you can show yourself this Valentine’s Day. Physical activity is directly associated with self esteem, so by spending some time moving, you’ll feel great both mentally and physically. The government recommends getting at least 150 minutes a week (it sounds a lot, but that’s just 20 minutes a day). If you’re struggling to fit it in, try a corporate fitness class from the Fitness Truck. TFT comes to your workplace, so you can fit it around for your schedule.

Get outside

Despite the cold February weather, why not try going getting some fresh air this Valentine’s Day? Walking the dog, strolling in the local park or going for a wander with your friends are all perfect ways to get your endorphins flowing. There are a bunch of benefits from getting outside, from reducing your chance of heart disease to improving bone strength. Plus, it’s super easy to do. Go for a walk on your lunch break, or get off the bus a few stops earlier – the small things definitely do add up.

Go alcohol free

It’s easy to get carried away with the alcohol on occasions like Valentine’s, but keeping off the wine can lead to some surprising benefits. Even if you just have a glass or two, keeping sober for the evening means you can wake up the next day feeling fresh and ready to take on the day (which is mega helpful if you’ve got a busy weekend). But don’t feel like you have to go completely sober; make sure you enjoy yourself too.
