The Five Love Languages

by Aspen, Herbal Authoress

Do you ever feel you and your partner are talking past each other? Dissatisfaction with your relationship can have serious consequences for your well-being and health. When it comes to how you express love and affection, you both may be doing an excellent job - just not in a way the other person recognizes. The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman breaks down the way many couples express affection so you can better show your love:

Words of Affirmation: Some people need praise, kind remarks, and “I Love You’s.” They need to be verbally recognized for their efforts.

Receiving Gifts: Whether it is a Tesla Model X or their favorite chocolate bar from the grocery store, receiving gifts makes them feel remembered, known, and appreciated.

Acts of Service: Pick up the kids or unload the dishwasher, these little things do not go unnoticed.

Quality Time: A simple evening stroll or running errands together is divine if this is your Love Language.

Physical Touch: From holding hands in public to sex, nothing can replace physical affection for these people. A simple squeeze of the shoulder as you pass them on the couch will help them feel appreciated and safe.
