The 5 Love Language is a concept discussed in a book by Gary Chapman that can be used to understand and provide love to others with whom you have a relationship. Understanding your love language preferences, and those of others allows you the option of showing love in the way the other person most appreciates.

But can you also use the 5 love languages: 1. physical touch, 2. words of affirmation, 3. quality time, 4. receiving gifts, and 5. acts of service for self care. Absolutely and we explain how. When you are feeling a little blue, anxious, or just need to feel a little love, you can apply these techniques by yourself to soothe and reduce stress.

For more detail about the 5 love languages, check out Gary's book.
