Now I know this post might sound like something for those that need ideas for Valentine’s Day, but this post is for anyone to use at any time of the year.
For some background for you, there are 5 love languages: words of affirmation, physical touch, receiving gifts, quality time, and acts of service. I believe everyone likes a combination of these love languages, it just varies on which ones speaks more to your loved one, friend, or family member. You can take a quiz here to see what your love language is.
Some examples for each love language are:
Words of Affirmation -> send an unexpected note, text, or card. Encourage genuinely and often. Lucky for you, I have several cards for you to choose from to send words of affirmation to your loved one.
Physical Touch -> Hug, kiss, hold hands, show physical affection regularly.
Receiving Gifts -> Give thoughtful gifts and gestures. Small things matter in a big way.
Quality Time -> Create special moments together, take walks and do small things together.
Acts of Service -> Do chores together or do a chore that your significant other does not like to do.
Here is a nice infographic I found that lists some more examples.
I receive daily emails on how to deepen relationships using love languages, which you can sign up for here (not an affiliate link). If you want to dive deeper, this website has several great resources for you.
This year, take some time to become better in tune with love languages of your loved ones so you can serve them best.
