5 Ways to Celebrate Love With the 5 Love Languages

February is the month of love, but why should that only be reserved for romantic relationships? For this Valentine’s day, we want to celebrate L-O-V-E in all of it’s many colourful and wonderful forms. Whether that’s love for a spouse, love for a friend, love for a mother or love for yourself, love is love, all the same.


One of our favorite ways to foster more warmth and love in our lives is by using the magical 5 love languages. If you haven’t heard about them yet, they were created by best-selling author and marriage counseller Dr Gary Chapman. 


He defines love in 5 different essential ways in which humans connect, which makes sense, because different people with different personality types will of course prefer to receive love in different ways.


Although Chapman’s love languages were designed to help those in relationships, you can absolutely switch them around to self-love languages or even apply them to other types of love in your life.


The beautiful thing about learning your love language (and the one of those around you) is that it will help you to connect on an even deeper level with them. And by having that self-awareness, it will make loving (and being loved) look easy.


So without further ado, here are 5 different ways you can supercharge love in your life with the 5 different love languages:

 

1. WORDS OF AFFIRMATION

People who’s love language is words of affirmation feel most loved when they receive verbal encouragement and in the form of words. This can be from a simple “I love you” or even a handwritten note.

 

Some ideas you can use:

  • Writing love-notes on the mirror
  • Practicing affirmations
  • Sending texts of encouragement
  • Using guided meditations


If “Words of Affirmation” is your love language you’ll love BEARTH Chakra Necklaces.
