• Sleep
    Strive for 7-9 hours nightly

  • Exercise
    Choose an activity you enjoy (and thus will stick with), and commit to moving your body for at least 30 minutes a day. MOVEMENT IS LIFE. We were designed to move and it influences EVERY aspect of your life, mental, chemical, physical, spiritual.

  • Nutrition
    Proper nutrition fights disease, boosts immunity, improves mood, sleep, and concentration

  • Relaxation
    Prayer/meditation, journaling, long walks, hot baths, massages, pedicures, listening to music, reading a book, enjoying a glass of wine or a cup of hot tea, etc.

  • Laughter
    Laughter truly is the best medicine, laugh more, stress less

  • Pleasure
    Make time for loved ones, friends, and the things or activities that make you happy, and know that it’s okay to say ‘no’ to people and situations that cause or bring you pain.

  • Words of affirmation
    Using verbal communication to edify and convey love to your partner.

  • Acts of service
    Showing love for your partner in action, through effort.

  • Receiving gifts
    Love is felt through receiving meaningful or thoughtful gifts (the focus being on thoughtfulness more so than materialism).

  • Quality time
    The focus here is on love shown through meaningful time spent together where your attention is fully given to your significant other.

  • Physical touch
    Those who speak the love language of physical touch feel loved and connected to their partner through touch, and may feel unloved in the absence of it.

Learning both you and your significant other’s love language can help you connect and remain connected in your relationship as you speak each other’s language accordingly.
