Valentine’s Day Your Way: Get Spiritual

Forget hearts and Cupid and boxes of candy. How about for the next seven days you show yourself some love? Each day between now and Valentine’s Day I’ll share something that you can do for yourself to make your day brighter. Each idea will have three levels – Spendy, Moderate, and Budget-Friendly so you can decide how big you want to go. 

I call this "epiphany light"

This will look different for everyone, depending on how you define and practice spirituality. If you’re an atheist, you can still connect with your higher self through breath and being present. In this TED talk on longetivy, the speaker shares that one of the main things that keeps communities of centarians together is common beliefs. Maybe your higher power is cereal – so get a big bowl and go deep.

Spendy: Go on a spiritual retreat. A quick Google search reveals many different retreat centers across the country and globally that cater to all beliefs.

Moderate: Buy some books to explore your beliefs or new beliefs that you’re interested in.

Budget-friendly: Go to your place of worship. Download a free meditation podcast. Simply focus on your breathing for five minutes.
