It’s Valentine’s Day! HAPPY DAY TO ALL!

For many of us, Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate the ‘love of our life.’  We want to appreciate our romantic relationship.

For others, Valentine’s Day is a total drag.  It’s just a reminder that you’re lonely and don’t have someone special in your life.  That’s a big “Ouch!”

Okay, don’t let this happen to you this year.  Even if you’ve hit a rough patch in your love life, here are some suggestions to beat the Valentine’s Day blues.

1.  Exercise – studies show the endorphins, serotonin and dopamine released during working out can improve your mood.

2.  Volunteer – several studies have shown that volunteering for those in need helps your mood, health and even your life span.

3.  Go to a Funny Movie – psychiatrists have proven that emotions are contagious.

4.  Travel Somewhere Sunny – that can be tough in West Michigan this time of year.  Facts support that nearly 10 percent of Americans suffer from SAD, Seasonal Affective Disorder and sunlight can boost levels of serotonin in the blood, counteracting seasonal affective disorder.

5.  Adopt a Pet – several studies show that people with pets live longer, are happier and have healthier lives.  If you’re looking for unconditional love, this is a good way to get it!
