“To love oneself is the beginning of a life-long romance”

This Valentine’s Day, truMedic is emphasizing the importance of self love. Everyday life can become hectic, and it’s in these moments that we need to take a step back.
Reminding ourselves that it is OKAY to have a few minutes of peace before we get back to everything around us is essential. Self love is not selfish, but in actuality, self love is the best way for us to be present for those around us.
Here are a few tips from the truMedic family on how to give back to you this Valentine’s Day...
1) Turn your phone off or set it to silent
This is your day, and there’s no way to enjoy yourself and relax if you’re checking your phone every few minutes. Turn your cell phone off or set it to silent so you can forget about your troubles.
2) Have food delivered to your door
One of the great luxuries of living in a golden age of technology is that it is really easy to have food delivered to your door. Apps like UberEats and GrubHub are incredibly user-friendly can include thousands of local restaurants.
3) Get a massage chair
One of the many great perks about working at truMedic is that we have sample massage chairs set up, and to be perfectly honest, they’re amazing! A massage chair is the next best thing to having a personal massage therapist.

5) Invest in good lighting
Sometimes even a small change can make all the difference when it comes to your mood. Consider investing in a smart LED lightbulb, something that you can easily modify and adjust. Different lighting can be the perfect touch to convert your home into a personal resort.
6) Wear a special outfit
Since today is your day wear something that compliments whatever mood you’re in. If that means throwing on some pajamas and lounging around on the couch...well then do that. If your in the mood for dinner and want to make it a night to remember, then go ahead and dress yourself up. Either way you can’t go wrong!
When you wear clothes that are comfortable, you feel good. The greatest part of your self-love day is that it’s not public, so if you want to wear sweatpants and a baggy shirt, go right ahead, there’s no one to judge. If you want to wear a tuxedo, go for it, it’s your day.
Create the perfect mood for your self-love day with aromatherapy. Essential oils dispersed by an ultrasonic diffuser create the ideal scents for relaxation and can brighten your mood. We recommend a citrus blend of orange and lemon to charge you up with positive energy.
8) Netflix and Chill
Okay, the expression “Netflix and Chill” has been overused lately, but it’s perfect for a self-love day. There are many great streaming services including HBO GO, Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon. Relax and watch your favorite TV shows and movies. Grab some popcorn and candy to complete the experience.
By having a self-love day, you’re saving yourself money on an expensive spa treatment. Spend some of that money on something that you’ve wanted for a long time. Purchase yourself a new phone, a relaxing neck and back massager, or book that weekend getaway you’ve been dreaming of.
