Valentine's Day is commonly known as the day we pamper our loved ones even more than any other day. With this description, we skip an important person, namely: me, myself and moi! In fact, on Valentine's Day you should be the one in the limelight! Let’s be fair.. how can you give love to your loved ones if you cannot even prove that love to yourself? So love for others all begins with self-love and empowering yourself to flourish into the best version of yourself.
At Cabau, we cannot agree more with this. That's why we cannot wait to get you started on giving yourself some extra portion of self-love on this special day. Especially for you, we have selected a number of goodies to treat yourself. These are nothing less than our Collagen Booster, Mood Booster and Sleep Well. They help you to get the most out of yourself, either physically, mentally or both. This way, you can continue to bloom and shine from the inside out.
We do not stop just here. Below we have a few more tips for you to start celebrating yourself elaborately today and every other day of the year.
1. Be your own best friend
Treat yourself the way you would treat your best friend(s). This means not to talk negatively to yourself, but rather show understanding and forgiveness towards yourself. It also includes giving yourself a pep talk when you are feeling low and doing fun things that give you energy.
2. Forgive yourself for your mistakes
Do not punish yourself too hard or let past failures drag your down. When you see imperfections and failed situations as lessons, you will not judge yourself for them. You forgive yourself faster for the mistakes you have made and continue to happily pursue your journey.
3. Accept yourself
When you realise your own self-worth, you are at peace with yourself. You will not be easily defeated by your weaknesses or less good qualities. You know that they do not define you, but rather make you so unique as a person.
4. Live consciously
Listen to yourself more often and have regular check-in moments with yourself. What do you need and how do you feel right now? Do you need an evening for yourself, an extra portion of vitamins or a warm bath?
Finally, it is important to keep in mind that Valentine's Day should not be the only day in which we can show deep appreciation for ourselves and others. No, showing love to yourself & others is something we should continue to do as a habit. This is the key to ongoing happiness and success. Always remember: The most important relationship is the one you have with yourself!
