It’s Valentine’s Month! Just because the big day of LOVE was last week doesn’t mean we have to stop celebrating. Obviously, Nutrition Nuptials is all about celebrating love that our couples have for each other. Which is why we’re going to get a little lovey dovey this week with TWO-getherness Tip #2: More Love, Hugs, and Kisses
Physical connection is important for relationships. Along with connecting emotionally and spiritually. This other person in your life is someone with whom you connect on a different level from any family or friends. So make sure you are making time for these small moments of connection with your Significant Other.

SAYING “I LOVE YOU”
Do you remember when your Significant Other told you they loved you for the first time? Even though it was many years ago, I can still remember most of the details when Mr E told me he loved me (stay tuned for a future episode of the Nutrition Nuptials Podcast to hear the story firsthand!). Now, do you remember the last time your Significant Other told you they loved you? Don’t take for granted and assume they told you this morning or yesterday. While we feel the love in our hearts, sometimes we don’t always say the words. Like any repetition, saying “I Love You” on a regular basis is only going to strengthen your relationship. Not sure how many “I Love You’s” have been said or heard this week? Keep track for one week and see how many times you say and hear “I Love You”.

HUG IT OUT
Is there anything better than being embraced by your Significant Other? That feeling of being against them, smelling their skin and feeling their warm touch? Do hugs in your home happen sporadically, robotically, or only for really good or really sad occasions? It might seem silly, but those hugs go deeper than you may realize. If you’re holding back on hugs, start making them happen more. And make them last a little longer. You know those good, long, melty hugs where the world around you disappears? That’s the stuff I’m talking about!
Kissing is more than lips coming together. There’s something way more intimate. Remember in Pretty Woman where kissing meant too much attachment (we’ll just overlook that whole hooker thing for the sake of my point)? I’m not talking about those quick pecks on the lips, cheek, or forehead. Just like I asked before about saying “I Love You”, do you remember your first kiss? And do you remember the last time you kissed your Significant Other like your first kiss? Make sure you’re not just saving those juicy kisses for Valentine’s Day, Birthdays, Anniversaries, and New Years. Keep a Kiss Tracker for a week to take note of how often you’re really getting those smooches. Aim to start and end every day with a kiss.

More Love, Hugs, and Kisses don’t just start and end on Valentine’s Day. Make every day feel like Valentine’s Day by adding these into your daily routine if they’re not already there. Never take your Significant Other for granted. And don’t be afraid to be the one making the first moves. Happy Valentine’s Month!
