Love is in the air! Can you feel it? Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show your partner and your loved ones some TLC — and to focus on your own self-care and wellness too. After all, you’re better able to care for the people around you when you’re feeling your best, so don’t be ashamed to lavish yourself with the things that make you feel good, not just on February 14 but all year ‘round.
Sip on a glass of red wine, then treat yourself to the benefits of resveratrol.
Go ahead, pour yourself a glass of red wine and slowly savor every sip! Resveratrol is a polyphenol found in the skin of grapes that works as an antioxidant, helping protect the body from free radical damage. While you can find resveratrol in wine, you’d have to drink 50 bottles of red wine to get the same amount of resveratrol in one serving of our Resveratrol 150, an antioxidant supplement formulated to support healthy, graceful aging.* This daily supplement supports a healthy, radiant glow, much like the one you get when you’re in love.*
Book a massage.
There’s nothing more healing and calming than the power of touch. Consider booking a regular massage to help work out tension and restore your spirit. If you have tightness or soreness in your joints and muscles from exercise or stress, letting a professional work it out can be so beneficial to your overall wellness, not to mention your comfort levels. Book a couples’ massage with your partner to really soak in the V-Day vibes.
Get your heart pounding.
And no, we don’t mean with a romantic gesture, though an over-the-top declaration of love does raise the stakes. We’re talking with regular cardiovascular exercise, like running, dancing, cycling or spinning, skating, or swimming, whatever floats your proverbial boat. If you and your partner or your children are already active, why not get outdoors and get moving for a Valentine’s Day celebration that does your heart and your body good?
Go ahead, indulge a little!
An important part of self-care is spoiling yourself from time to time with your favorite rich foods, sweet treats, or guilty pleasure activities. If you need a little mood lift, there’s no reason why you can’t buy yourself flowers, have a sappy movie marathon, or invite your friends over for dinner or a dance party. Let go of your “should” attitude and do what you want for one day; you could even consider taking the day off to head to the spa or simply relax at home, or do an all-day date activity with your spouse or partner. Lean in to the romantic vibes and book a night at a local hotel to get away from it all — bonus points if they have a luxurious bathtub to soak away your cares.
Give earth-friendly gifts.
Instead of splurging on a big bouquet of red roses or a bunch of candy, gift your Valentine with the earth in mind. Why not plant a few trees in their honor? That’s the perfect gift for a nature lover. If you want to give jewelry, go vintage for a truly timeless (and sustainable!) memento of your love.
Treat your sweet tooth.
Chocolate-dipped strawberries are a must-have, but so is our Maca Boost® Cacao Ginger! This yummy caffeine-free powder helps maintain healthy energy and stamina levels.* We love it blended up in a smoothie or stirred into almond or oat milk for a feel-good way to support your active lifestyle.*
Light the flame of desire.
Need a little help spicing things up in the bedroom? It happens, especially when life is stressful or as you age. Male Libido gets your motor running with Horny Goat Weed, Saw Palmetto, Maca, and Oats.* Women’s Libido provides traditional support to help maintain your spark.*
