The 5 Love Languages | The Crown Issue

From the Crown Issue of Liveology Yoga Magazine.



The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts is a book by Gary Chapman that an apply to any relationship, whether it be romantic, familial, or friendship. The 5 Love Languages is so universal, it has been adapted in many different forms - for couples, singles, even children.



Gifts

It is common to think of the Gifts love language as desiring lavish displays of affection or superficial things, but it is so much deeper than that. Gifts can represent thoughtfulness, concern for the other person when you are away, and awareness of the other person’s personality and desires. Giving gifts can be as simple as bringing your partner an their favorite smoothie or picking up a small item that reminds you of them.


Quality Time

We don’t always have a large quantity of time, but quality time can happen anytime, anywhere. Even small things like devoting 10 minutes to really listen to your partner and provide undivided attention can be as meaningful as larger gestures like going on trips.


Physical Touch

Physical touch is so much more than sex, though sex can be an important need. Touch encompasses the whole body, and can provide endorphins and feelings of connectedness and safety. A simple 30 second hug when reuniting at the end of the day can increase the harmony between couples tremendously.


Words of Affirmation

While we often receive a lot of praise as children, words of affirmation are not always heard in the adult world, so it can feel really good to receive basic encouragement. A simple statement like, “You did a really good job” can go a long way.

Acts of Service

Acts of service can be one of the most difficult but one of the most valuable. It is going out of your way (and out of your comfort zone) to do things to help the other person. This can include anything from doing the dishes to helping the person prepare for a presentation or event. At the root, acts of service make people feel supported and cared for by helping to meet practical needs.
