Physical touch as a self-love language (Blogintines day 3)
Originally, I was going to start with the love languages from a social perspective but then I realized a post like that requires more time to think through and also understanding self-love languages are still underrepresented in the conversation.
Physical touch as self-love language isn’t what you probably have in mind (tsk naughty… although I guess that can be included). Physical touch (or it's probably more appropriate to just say physical) is about doing things that make your body feel good or just focusing on your physical wellbeing. Let’s start off with some examples.
List of Examples of Self-love activities for people who needs physical touch
Putting on face masks
Wearing soft lounge clothes
Doing your skincare routine
Getting a massage
Getting your hair done
Getting your nails done
Using a weighted or heated blanket
My thoughts on physical touch as a self-love language
OK so this post is going to be a little different than what I imagined but I hope to come back in and edit this. Physical touch as a self-love language I think is something very important. The irony is even though this love language as with a romantic partner is very low on my list it is my second to last and it had one of the lower percentages I think it’s it’s the highest on my self-love language due to this is what I do most as my self-care routine. Physical touch as a love language isn’t just about looking good but it’s the little things that make you feel luxurious like getting back massages and if you can’t afford to do that buying appliances like a foot massager or a back massager can give you that self-love feel. I also think getting things like your hair done or getting a manicure or pedicure can add to that because when you do those things you get a little hand massage you look at it you like how your skin feels after it because usually, they remove the dead skin that they fix your hair and you get a little scout massage when you get your hair done so these are some things that a person can do as a self-love language and invest in.
I think when I found out this was my self-love language as opposed to romantic companionship type love language I found it very interesting because I feel like that just means I find fulfillment and doing that self-care ask for myself as opposed to getting it from another person and I feel it for filled that I could do it for myself.
