Janey’s top Herts tips for a healthier lifestyle
Get Ready for Love
A recent study has found that feeling alone or isolated can shorten a person’s lifespan, and virtual relationships won’t do the trick. Couples who text each other are much less happy, while face-to-face relationships are much more fulfilling, the report by Brigham Young University in Utah, suggests. Perhaps it’s time to get back to good old fashioned real relationships rather than virtual ones?
TJ Gibbs, a Watford-based author and relationship coach, points out the importance of self love as a foundation for a successful partnership. She says many people think ‘If only I could just find the right partner I would feel happy’. But in doing so feel it’s the partner’s job to make them feel loved. This leads to unfulfilled dreams, broken promises and shattered expectations. Love is an ‘inside job’ TJ says and loving yourself is an essential foundation to loving and receiving love from another.
