Week 2 - 30 Day Valentine Challenge

8:42 PM

Need to catch up? Week 1 can be found here.

I hope last week went well, this week, we're kicking it up a notch

It's easy to get so caught up in Valentine's Day being a "Hallmark" holiday that we can miss out on the opportunity to show the person we love just how important they are.  So, on Tuesdays, I'll be posting a week long Valentine's Challenge.   A few things that will cost you nearly nothing financially, but have potential huge gains.

Week 2 - Let's Get Physical!

Day 8: Tuesday 1/22 - Hugs 
  Do you ever feel as though the walls are starting to close in on you and that you could really use a hug?  I'm sure your special someone does too.   Spend today giving all of the hugs you can.  Physical touch is a beautiful thing and this is a great way to start things slow.

Day 9: Wednesday 1/23 - Manicure/Pedicure
 This one may seem like it's easier for the ladies, but not necessarily.  Offer to give him/her a manicure.  It doesn't have to be professional (although if you can do it, do it).  For the fellas, offer to paint her toe nails.  She knows you're not going to be as good as her nail tech, but the thought and the effort goes far.

Day 10: Thursday 1/24 -Make Out!
 Take it back to high school.  The goal is not to have sex, the goal is everything but sex.  Take your time to enjoy the scenery. When life gets hectic, it is easy to go straight for the goal and miss out on all of the "before".  So work on "before" and only before, or at least have the goal of working on the "before". 

Day 11: Friday 1/25 -Scalp Massage
 Everyone loves it.  If you don't, you should immediately schedule an appointment with a doctor because you are missing out and that's just not fair.  There are few things as relaxing as a scalp massage.  It even works on babies.

**Note: if your significant other just got there hair done, this one isn't going to work for you, repeat day 10

Day 12: Saturday 1/26 - Bath/Shower Time
 You may have done it back in the day, or that one time in Cabo, or that one weekend you drunk that whole box of wine.  Taking joint shower/baths doesn't have to be reserved for that one time you get away every couple of years.  Even if you just have a few minutes when you KNOW the kids are going to be sleep/watching tv/at the neighbors

Day 13: Sunday 1/27 -  Hold Hands
  Take hold of each others hands when ever you can.  Sitting next to each other on the couch, while cooking dinner, at the mall, wherever you are, just grab their hand and enjoy the moment.

Day 14:  Monday 1/28 -Massage
  Break out the oil, light some candles, turn on whatever music settles your spirit and give them a nice massage.  A real one.  Not the fake kind you give just to get into another position, but pretend like you're getting paid for it.

Let me know how it's going. Good luck!
