A little something sweet …

Today’s Valentine’s Day and unless you’ve been sequestered with your TV/radio off, it would be difficult not to know about it.  Commercials – point-of-purchase displays – even the gas station is set up to make sure we don’t forget our sweethearts!  Millions will be spent today on roses, candy, teddy bears and more yet later tonight, retail employees will mark down all the Valentine’s stuff to make way for … Easter!   Good-bye Necco sweethearts, hello Peeps!

Put aside the romantic connotations (and pressures) of today and know that it’s actually a perfect opportunity to do something sweet for yourself.  There’s an abundance of good things and warm feelings around anyways, why not roll in it? A few ideas:

  • Indulge in that special coffee-house drink you love so much. Monday morning commutes are so much better with a tasty treat.
  • Build yourself the ultimate healthy salad at lunch and, if possible, sit in the sunshine to eat it.
  • Double up on the amount of water you drink today; your circulation will thank you.
  • Treat yourself to a workout that leaves your skin glowing.
  • Leave the dishes in the sink and instead, sink into the book or movie you’ve been eyeing.
  • Buy one special piece of candy/chocolate/whatever and savor it slowly.
  • Bottom line: do one decadent thing today that leaves you feeling spoiled. Because when you feel that way, when you’re happy and satisfied and included, you’re more likely to share your best with others.    Including your sweetheart.

Love is all around us … how are you celebrating Valentine’s Day?
