Can you believe how January has just rushed past us? How are your detox activities so far? If you haven’t started yet, this blog link will help you get to it:( Real Talk, Let's Do Detox! ). As we enter the shortest month of 2020, we are kicking off for Spring. This season means more than just celebrating the love month with the one you hold dear – it may also mean giving your language of affection to everyone in your unique way. Tip: Make it a habit to be a source of love even beyond February. Let’s get started!
LANGUAGE OF AFFIRMATION
Recent research indicates we generally show and receive love in 5 different ways. One love language is the language of affirmation. This language is expressing affection through spoken or written words to show and receive love. It's the thoughtful gestures and encouragement towards a family member, friend, or co-worker from reassurance and gratitude: "Everything is gonna be okay, you are okay." Doing these gestures for someone is one of the most powerful love languages. For instance, a co-worker or a friend is seeking peace, calm, and self-reflection – why not try writing them a note and remind them that everything is going to be okay. Don’t forget to brew them a freshly ground coffee or French pressed tea and stick your note on the glass. Or you may as well have their glass personalized with an encouraging note!
ACT OF SERVICE
When you notice your loved one needs comfort or relief, you can show them love with an act of service. An act of service can be a love language you can express to a loved one or a friend who needs one. A good example is doing things that can make their life easy - you may want to do your sibling’s laundry or may help them clean their room. In the same way, cooking your loved one’s favorite comfort food is an excellent idea. Service is more than an act of facilitating things through helping – it is one of the highest forms of love because you show your affection by doing without expecting anything in return. Remember, action plus words can reassure that everything will be ok.
You don’t need to go out and go on a shopping spree to be kind to others. No matter how low or high the cost is, if there’s something out there that could seriously improve other’s lives, it will be a joy to start saving for it. Plus, the ones who deserve your gift don't need to be begging for it. Meanwhile, the leap of faith of giving a gift to someone who you randomly thought would mean a lot too. Remember, your act of giving is powerful because you already are!

Quality time is the most essential love language we all need, especially in February. With a busy schedule - our errands and personal problems become life's roadblocks preventing us from spending time with others. But hey, it’s never too late! You still have time, so, make time for them! Take time out of your busy day. Drive them to town or set a weekly family pizza which we think is a good idea! And no, we don't use a magic trick in here, WE MAKE THINGS HAPPEN!

Anything that makes the body feel good and relaxed or anything that focuses on physical existence like massage, exercise, spa, skincare routine, swimming, hugging, and tapping of shoulders to encourage someone, make a great physical love language. Because of this, we suggest that you treat someone for a salon or a skincare routine. You may also opt to pamper them for a weekly or monthly conditioning of the body through a massage or foot spa. While some prefer outside of home treatment, a fancy bubble bath prepared for your special someone after a tiring day can express a lot of love. Even a soft blanket can give a special kind of physical love and can make someone feel comforted. So, for your whole family, try to do laundry for them by using The Laundress’ eco-friendly and non-toxic detergent soap and fabric conditioner for clean and comfortable clothing and beddings:
There you go, folks! Love is a choice we all make every day, not just during Valentine’s Day. One, our physical presence and accessibility are important. Second, spending time together and giving undivided attention while being physically around means the whole world to them. Thirdly, expressing your love with sincere words and telling them anything that can make their self-worth renewed and secured is superb! Fourth, it means a lot for someone whenever you lift the burden off their shoulders especially when you do it sacrificially. Fifth and last, giving gifts will not just make them smile but will leave a mark on them for how you unselfishly remember them not only because it's the love month but all throughout their lifetime. Life is short and regret is a sting - let’s do this today and the days beyond and we will see the world a better home for today’s generation and in the future! We love you!
