Valentines Day was just a few days ago, and we know how important that is for couples and romantics. The most prominent assumption that revolves around Valentine’s Day is the fact that couples and people in love should be the only ones that enjoy it. However, that is not necessarily true. “At CapreLife Global, we believe that Valentine Day is also for those that want to do activities for themselves. Whether it may be taking yourself out to dinner with friends, alone or just buying yourself something really nice. Real love and confidence begins with yourself and you alone,” says Lisa Capre, managing director of CapreLife Global.
According to Success Magazine’s article on Self-Love, the writer Cecilia Mels writes about few tips that’ll help develop the characteristics of self-love: “Carve out time for yourself. It can be as simple as a warm bath before bed or 15 minutes to read your favorite book every morning. You can’t expect to love anyone else if you don’t love yourself first. Be vulnerable. Opening yourself up to love and a true connection is difficult. We spend years, even decades, building walls against the possibility of pain. Set aside time to connect with your partner or close friend by reading a page from your journal or sharing past memories. Let go of control. Attempting to control our lives is not only ineffective, it’s also our ego proclaiming that we don’t need help. Practice daily control-releasing exercises. For example, the next time you’re running late for a meeting and everything seems to be going wrong, stop, take a deep breath and release your perceived control.”
“These are just some of the ways to help develop self-love and confidence. It’s an important key factor that develops happiness from within and not through the means of other individuals,” says Lisa Capre of CapreLife Global. We’re always in tune with our well being at CapreLife Global, and know that confidence and success only happen when we allow it happen for us through our mindset and self-understanding.
