Love your Health on Valentine's Day

(NC) Valentine's Day has always been about loving someone else, but too often we forget to take proper care of the most important person: ourselves. Don't be sad about being single this Valentine's Day. Instead, celebrate your health and take some time to enjoy your own wellbeing and happiness. Here are four ways you can love yourself this Valentine's Day.

Love your exercise. Spending some time outdoors, at the gym, or on your yoga mat is a perfect way to give back to you. Exercise will help boost your mood, leaving you feeling happier and more relaxed. Regular exercise will also help prevent or manage a wide range of illnesses.

Love your health. Without health we can't have happiness, which is why it is so important to take time to look after ourselves. This Valentine's Day, think about your heart and consider adding more omega's to your diet. Omega-3's are the perfect way to say “I love me” because your body cannot produce them efficiently. Therefore, special attention needs to be paid to ensuring you receive enough from your diet or supplements to give your heart the health it deserves.

Love your singleness. The great thing about being single on Valentine's Day is that you don't have to spend money on a tacky card or go to an overcrowded restaurant. Spend some time thinking about what you love about yourself and the strengths and accomplishments that have made you a healthy and happy individual.

Love your quality time. Being single on Valentine's Day does not mean you have to spend the day alone watching sappy movies and eating chocolate. Instead, treat yourself to a spa treatment or go on a mini-shopping spree at your local health food retailer and buy some products that will help you feel good from the inside out. Start with essentials such as vitamin D, omega-3s, probiotics, and multivitamins.

Even if you are in a relationship, however you choose to spend this Valentine's Day, make sure you take some time to love yourself. The Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) has more great tips on how to make this Valentine's Day your healthiest yet at
