It's February! We made it through the holidays just to get inundated with notions of chocolate, flowers, bling, and extravagant weekends in wine country to 'reconnect with the one you love'.
But what if we approach the day (or the whole month!) with a focus on connecting with the people we care about. Not just your significant other, but your best friend that you never have a chance to talk to, or a relative you haven't seen for a long time, or a sister or brother.
Consider trying one of the ideas below.
Share some time with someone. Make a lunch date with your best friend, mom, aunt, sister, or an older neighbor who might not have anyone to share the day with.
Appreciate someone. Look your husband, children, grandchildren, dry cleaner, grocery store clerk, school bus driver, etc. right in the eye and say, "Thank you. I can't tell you how much I appreciate what you do for me. You make my life easier, fuller, or blessed."
Drop a card in the mail to a special person in your life. Or, if you have children, teach them to honor people in their lives like teachers. Have them make thank you cards to give to their teachers.
Give the gift of massage. You can pick up a gift certificate at the office. Call me at 713-384-9793 to order yours.
Bonus: Connect with YOU. Not everyone schedules regular massage, and that's okay. But if it's been awhile, maybe it's time to practice a little self-care and get yourself a massage, too. The best gift you can give the people you love is a happy, healthy you.
