Do you have those friends or family members who are just filled with joy and happiness & every time you see them you know you’re going to be going back home with an instant 6 pack . The day is filled with so much laughter and love that in that moment you really appreciate their company. That feeling….is the feeling of appreciation, appreciating someone you value.
Most of the times we don’t tell our special person how much we value them for being in our lives ( I’m guilty of it as well).
So I’ve got a challenge for you!- Tell that special friend, family member, boyfriend etc that you appreciate them!!
Below are a few tips on how you can show your loved one how much you value them:
1.Words- Say I love and appreciate you. Let them know that you are thankful their in your life.
2. Do a random act of kindness- Pay for their meal/drink when out. Gift them with something meaningful that represents the relationship.
3. Honesty- Be honest with them, like they say honesty is the best policy. If your not honest with them, it shows a lack of trust and love.
4. Pay attention- Listen carefully to everything they say. You’ll start to notice their habits or the way their face lights up when talking about something their passionate about. Don’t talk with the intent to reply, reply with the need to understand.
5.Loving hugs- Give your special person a long heartfelt hug- it is shown that if you hug someone for long than 20 second, it increase the ‘love hormone’ oxytocin which reduces stress levels and has a huge benefit on the heart.
6.Encouragement- Encourage your loved one by letting them be the best version of themselves. Show your support and love for them.
7.Compliment them- If they’ve started a new activity or just slaying in life . Tell them! shower them with words of praise.
Until next time…..
Be Bold, Be Strong, Be you x
