This February we’re celebrating all different kinds of love. From romantic relationships, to friendships and self-love, we’re covering it all. While Valentine’s Day on February 14th is typically a celebration for lovers, this year we thought we’d extend that love out to all areas of our lives for a month-long celebration.
Right now, it’s more important than ever to spread good vibes and show our appreciation for the ones we love, and (arguably most importantly) showing ourselves a little love too.
To kick off the month, we’re starting with ‘Galentine’s Week’ – an appreciation of friendship and the significant gals (and guys, we’re including you too!) in our life. For many, the pandemic has been isolating and emphasised how much we crave human contact. Feeling isolated or lonely can have a negative impact on your mental health and can be difficult to communicate to others. That’s why we’re inviting you to check in with your friends and family this month – whether it’s by phone, email or Skype, trust us it will be appreciated. You could have a one-to-one virtual coffee morning, or host a group ‘Galentines date night’ – perhaps a virtual wine tasting, film night or even…dare we say it… a Zoom quiz?!
Joining us for our Galentine’s Week celebration? We’d love to hear what you’re up to. Tag us in a social post or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
