This week the challenge is to plan something special for Valentine’s Day.
There are several great reasons for planning something special for someone else:
- It will make them feel great – who doesn’t love to know that someone else cared enough about them to plan something special for them?
- It will help grow your relationship – connecting with and thinking about others is a great way to improve your relationship bonds – something that is very important for emotional and whole health.
- YOU will feel great. There is nothing like the feeling you get when you do something nice for someone else.
Notice, I didn’t say do something difficult, time-consuming or unique – I just said special. So it can be as simple as you’d like. It can also be for whomever you’d like – your significant other, your kids, even a good friend. Heck – give a Starbucks gift card to your favorite cashier at the grocery – I don’t care, just take a few minutes out of your day today to plan a little something special to mark the up-coming holiday.
Need some ideas? Here are a few easy, inexpensive ones I shared last week. Or how about setting the table the night before with some red plates and napkins and placing a homemade Valentine on each plate – a fun, festive way to start the day! Have school aged kids? Pick them up after school and take them out for hot chocolate or ice cream. Or have a fun after school snack ready along with their favorite game to play or a new book to read.
Take five minutes right now and plan something special, then take the necessary steps to implement – you’ll be glad you did it! Make sure and share what you did in the comments – we could all use new ideas!
