Love is in the Air

February 08, 2023

February is the month where people typically shower their loved ones with flowers, candy and gifts. Simpson believes in doing this not only in February but throughout the year. And why stop at showering others with gifts? Self-care is just as important and has many health benefits – mentally, physically and emotionally.

Join us as we celebrate ourselves and others by spreading a little love in the below ways!



We all know about Valentine’s Day, but did you know February 13 is Self-love Day? Here are some ideas on how to improve your wellness.

  • Get enough sleep.
  • Drink water.
  • Journaling.
  • Healthy eating or cook a meal that you love.
  • Mindfulness and meditation.
  • Be active: exercise, stretch, practice yoga, take a walk.
  • Take a relaxing bath or shower.
  • Treat yourself to a massage or spa treatment.
  • Read a book or watch a movie.
  • Spend time with loved ones or engage in activities that bring you joy.
  • Do something kind for someone else, such as volunteering or sending a thoughtful gift.



Neighbors may seem like a forgotten concept since COVID but helping the people who live in your community is a great way to care for others. Donate clothes or food in your local community, assist elderly neighbors with chores like yard work or shoveling, or simply just saying ‘Hi’ to people you pass when you go out for a walk – simple gestures and kindness goes a long way!



And of course, there is caring for family, friends, significant others, etc. You don’t likely need a reminder to do this, but we know Valentine’s Day is just around the corner…

  • Relax together (read, watch TV, listen to music, etc.)
  • Go on a hike or walk together.
  • Have a picnic in a scenic location.
  • Go to a yoga or meditation class together.
  • Get massages at a spa or at home.
  • Cook together; click here on some DIY Valentine’s dinner ideas!
  • Write love letters to each other.
  • Take a dance class together.
  • Go stargazing in a secluded spot.



Don’t forget about loving our home, Mother Earth! Earth Day is April 22, but you can pledge to Reduce, Reuse, Recycle every day. Click here for more and other green living tips!


No matter how you decide to celebrate others and practice self-care, you will be doing yourself and others a service!
