Love challenge: 28 ways to invite love into your life
Put on your rose-colored glasses and embrace your inner romantic with our 28 Days of Love calendar! Each day you’ll find an activity like a special girls night out or an indulgent night in for a warm, Lavender-scented bath. This February, bring love into your life and grow closer to the people around you (including yourself!) as you complete the calendar.
How do you do the love challenge?
It’s simple: Do one task for each day of the month. It’s okay if you don’t begin on the first day; just begin with the task that correlates with the day you are on or start from the beginning and go through each day until you complete the list!
How can love improve your life?
When we think of love, oftentimes we picture romantic relationships or the love that we have for our families and friends. It is easy to forget how important it is to love yourself as well. Increasing self-love can help you to gain confidence and will allow you to have the capacity to give more of your love to others.
As you serve those around you, change your inner voice to be more positive, and work on building loving relationships, you will begin to increase in happiness and life satisfaction.

February 1: Share a delicious meal with someone you care about. Bonus points if you use Vitality™ essential oils!
February 3: Send a note or card to someone you love. It doesn’t have to be a written note. You can even send an email or a text. Show someone you are thinking about them!
February 4: Cuddle up with a blanket and your favorite book or movie for a night in. Kick back and relax with some delicious Vitality-infused hot cocoa, diffuse your favorite relaxing blends, and snack on some chips and guac.
February 5: Write down 10 things you love about yourself. It’s okay if this takes a little bit of time. Allow yourself to truly ponder on this list. If you are struggling with coming up with 10 things, do a compliment exchange with a friend or loved one to get ideas.
February 6: Send a gift to someone. Big or small, help someone feel good about themselves with a present.
February 7: Make a favorite treat for yourself and indulge.
February 8: Start a gratitude journal. Work toward making gratitude a daily habit in your life. Begin by writing down 3–5 things you are grateful for each day.
February 9: Tell someone you love them. This can be done in person or over the phone. Communication is key in healthy relationships, so let your loved ones know how much you love and appreciate them!
February 10: Go to lunch with a coworker or friend. Catch up and enjoy each other’s company. Focus your conversation on positive and fun topics and try to learn something new about this person, rather than indulging in gossip or drama. You’ll leave feeling rejuvenated and positively boosted in your day.
February 11: Treat yourself to your favorite fresh-cut flowers to add some brightness to your day.
February 12: Give yourself a manicure or pedicure. Mani-pedis aren’t your thing? Do a fun spa night with a relaxing bath and face mask! Happy, healthy skin and nails will help you appreciate your amazing body.

February 17: Give someone your time today and listen to what they have to say. You never know the impact that simply listening can have.
