Valentine's Day is a day devoted to love and affection. With it being around the corner, there sure is excitement but at the same time it adds a lot of pressure. Over the years, the expectations coming from this day have intensified to a great deal. Partners are nervous and want to make sure their better halves have a special day. We try to do our level best - whether it is getting a nice gift, a favorite restaurant reservation, booking a romantic spa, or even wearing fancy lingerie to impress.
2021 has definitely been an uncertain year. We started the year hopeful considering Covid-19, our future, and everything else. However, very soon the uncertainty came upon us and for many of us has lingered on. This uncertainty has resulted in increased anxiety, low mood, increased OCD amongst others. It, therefore, is very important that now with the new year coming, we structure ourselves in a manner that is helpful, practical, and healthy for us to reach our goals. We set goals and resolutions in a manner that not only gives us control but also a feeling of accomplishment and consistency.
