Love Hack: How to Make Valentine’s Day Last All Year Long
    I’m going to cut to the chase here. Why should Valentine’s Day be the only day where you show your significant other how much you love and care for them? Why shouldn’t you do it each and every day of the year – making sure you take a little time to remind them of how much they mean to you?

    There’s really no reason why you can’t make every day Valentine’s Day. It doesn’t take too much effort, and by getting started today with a rotuine that you can carry throughout the year, you’ll find that the momentum of the day can – and will – last all year long.

    Here are just a few of the little things you can do to make February 14th last far longer than just 24 hours:

    Start and End the Day with a Connection

    When you wake up in the morning, let them know you’re happy to see them or hear their voice. Before you go to bed, remind them that once more. There’s nothing quite like reminded how special you are to start and end your day. And it takes just a little bit of awareness to make such a huge difference in someone’s life. Why shouldn’t that difference be made for that special someone in your life?

    Give Hugs

    Again, something that takes very little to make happen but can mean so much to the recipient. A hug reinforces that physical connection you have with your partner, and it can linger all day long. Whether your partner needs a hug to lift their spirits or just as a gesture of how much you care about them, a hug is one of the best ways you can make that Valentine’s Day feeling last all year long.

    Simple Gestures

    Things like writing a love note in their lunch kit or sending an email that lets them know you’re thinking of them is a simple gesture that can go a long way. Keep some Post-It notes in a kitchen drawer along with pens of different colours so you’ve got them at the ready, and bookmark an eCard service in your Internet browser so that should the moment strike you, you can quickly send off a message to your sweetheart.

    Say the Words

    Whether those words are “I love you” or “You’re the best”, it really doesn’t matter. Sometimes it’s just great to hear them, especially if they seem to appear out of the blue. By starting to “ritualize” this sort of thing, you’re setting yourself up for a long-lasting habit that will level up your love life and keep the home fires burning throughout the year.

    Reflection Leads to Recognition

    Taking the time to journal how you feel is an important way to not only express how you feel about someone, but to foster expressing those feelings to them on a daily basis. It’s in those moments of capturing your thoughts in a journal of some sort that the gratitude really resonates, giving you further fuel to make sure that Valentine’s Day isn’t the only day where you let your love one know how much they mean to you.

    In Closing

    As you can see, there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t make Valentine’s Day last the whole year through. You just need to take the time to make it happen. You’d be surprised as to how much your productivity and zest for life will increase by showing those you love how much they mean to you more than just one day per year.
