Whether you are in a relationship or single, we encourage you to look at Valentine’s Day as a day to love yourself. Self-love is the type of love that should come first and we often don’t practice it enough.
Here are some ways to practice self-love and take care of YOU this Valentine’s Day!
This Valentine’s Day, move your body. Hit the gym for some YOU time or try out that yoga class you’ve always wanted to attend. Maybe you need a little bit of motivation to get moving?
We’ve rounded up some great workout clothes to add to your fitness wardrobe!
You will need to start with a great sports bra. Choosing the right sports bra isn’t as simple as picking the prettiest one and hoping for the best. High impact activity tears breast tissue leading to damage, so you need to consider support and practicality.
Next, comes the perfect workout shirt. Whether you prefer tops or tanks is up to you, but make sure that you choose one you love so you’ll be more likely to wear it for your workout!
Finally, you will want to select a great pair of tights to finish off your outfit. Tights are all the rage right now and for good reason! Not only can you wear them to move in but they are also great for everyday looks.
Now that you are ready to move, let’s get you ready to nourish!
Nourishing from the inside out is key to active living. However, it’s not just about eating healthy and wholesome food. A nourishing life also means being inspired to maintain a sound mind, a healthy heart, prosperous relationships and glowing skin!
