When it comes to love, everyone expresses it differently. Some people love getting a nice gift. Others love it when they’re showered with compliments. While love languages are often related to giving and receiving love from partners, they can apply to how you show love to yourself too. In this blog post, learn about the best self-care ideas to try, according to your love language type.
Before jumping into the self-care ideas, here’s a quick rundown of each love language.
This love language focuses on physical touch and intimacy. Depending on your sexual orientation, this can involve kissing, hugging, cuddling, holding hands, and/or sex.
This love language is all about written and spoken appreciation. From your friend telling you that you look nice today to your boss saying you crushed that presentation at work, this type is all about compliments, praise, gratitude and encouragement.
This love language is pretty self-explanatory. It’s all about the gifts. This doesn’t necessarily mean you need your gifts to be on the pricier side, it’s more about the sentimentality and thought behind the gift.
This love language is perfect for people who believe actions speak louder than words. Whether it’s doing the dishes or picking up the dry cleaning, this type is all about the little things that make your busy life easier.
Quality time as a love language centers around actively connecting with your partner (or in this case, yourself). This can look like having a meaningful conversation or a fun activity without any distractions.
When it comes to love languages, the first step is finding out which love language sticks with you the most. Maybe you’re a huge fan of physical touch and just love cuddles and kisses. Or maybe you just love acts of service, like someone cooking you a meal or doing your laundry. So take the quiz and find out which love language speaks to you the most.
Yes, they definitely can be. But that doesn’t mean you can’t use your love language to show yourself some love too. There’s often this idea that showing yourself love and care is selfish. As if you should feel bad or guilty for it. That’s just not true.
No matter what you’re dealing with in your life–stress at school or work, family or relationship drama, a mental illness, impostor syndrome–treating yourself with love and compassion is not only not selfish, but absolutely necessary.
So here are some self-care ideas to try, according to your love language.
