Valentine's day is right around the corner.  A holiday centered around love has turned into teddy bears and giant heart-shaped boxes filled with chocolates.  It seems like a lot of people dread this day, but if you stop to remember what it’s all about, it can actually be amazing.  Let's make it an epic day.

At Live Better, we believe that you should spend every day doing what you love, with the people you love.  Valentine’s Day is a reminder of that.  It’s a day to go above and beyond and remind that special person in your life how important they are to you.  We have a few tips for you on how to do Valentine’s Day Live Better style.

Have The Best Valentine's Day Ever

1.)     Make sure your home or apartment is clean.  A clean house is a clean mind. The more organized your living space is, the more productive you are – it’s just common sense!  Trust me guys, there are few things that make a girl happier than coming home to a clean house.  Always use organic products! 

2.)     Do NOT forget flowers!  Trust me on this one… Regardless of how long you have known each other, flowers are always a good idea.  It is a simple gesture that goes a long way, and it brings some life into your home.  Whole Foods has great flower specials right now.

3.)     Plan a fun date activity for the two of you – something you’ve never done before.  We recommend a Barry’s Bootcamp date, followed by dinner at True Food Kitchen.  Nothing says “I love you” like getting your ass kicked in a workout class and then eating the world’s finest guacamole.  Another one of our favorite date activities is rock climbing at Brooklyn Boulders.  We love dates that involve being active and doing something unusual, because who doesn’t want to try something new?!  Dinner and a movie is great, but why not switch it up for Valentine’s Day and climb one of Brooklyn Boulders 60 foot walls?!

4.)     Planning to stay in for a chill night?  Spice things up with a Turmeric dinner.  Check this out and enjoy a movie together.  My favorite is About Time.  This movie is filled with the true meaning of life - You decide to make your day/life great!

Valentine’s Day is probably one of the most dreaded days of the year.  It’s filled with stress about relationship statuses, expensive gifts, and showcasing everything on social media but, it doesn’t have to be that way.  It can be as simple as spending the day with your significant other, or friends, and doing something different and reminding them that you care about them.  If you live your life the Live Better way, this day is just another reminder that we should show our love and appreciation for the people in our lives.

Enjoy your Valentine's Day.  Mix things up.  And at least get flowers...

Have the best Valentine's Day ever.
