How To: Easily Find and Master Your Love Language

There are 5 love languages when it comes to the way you show and appreciate affection. They include; physical touch, receiving gifts, words of affirmations, quality time and acts of service. An easier way to remember them can be by memorising the five T's; Touch, Tokens, Talk, Time and Tasks.


Share on Pinterest and Facebook so all your friends can find theirs out too!


If you're unsure of what your love language is and want to be a little more certain before we move on to the rest of the blog I have linked a quick quiz HERE that you can follow to help clarify. The great thing about this quiz is it also ranks the languages for you showing you which is most to least important, it's always fun to unveil a little more about yourself.
That being said, just because you have a preference doesn't mean that you don't appreciate the others. For example, tokens are at the bottom of my list; I'm not one for giving or receiving them but if the inspiration strikes and the stars align you know I'm all for it. Stay open.

Now I trust you've done the quiz and possibly done the quiz on your significant others let's jump into how your language can affect your relationships and how we can use them to make stronger connections with those we love.

TOUCH
Small actions such as kisses on cheeks or linking arms while walking really make the knees weak of those who speak through touch. Sitting closer on the couch, guiding them out the door with your hand on their lower back or even wiping away their tears is a gesture that makes those feel loved. In long distance situations this isn't particularly easy but reassurance of wanting to touch can really mean a lot.
Those who seek touch like the feeling of safety and having someone near by they trust has their back.

TOKENS
The element of surprise and knowing that you've been thinking of them mean more than the article itself when it comes to this love language. Small tokens on a regular basis really make those feel appreciated and loved for all they do. Whether you made a spontaneous purchase that reminded you of them or you're finally purchasing that thing they've wanted and hinted at for months.
Don't skimp on the gifts those who seek tokens like knowing that they've been on your mind and that you think of them often.

TALK
Words of affirmation from their loved ones can make all the difference between feeling supported and motivated to not caring at all. Leaving notes, good morning texts or writing full blown love letters are something that these lovers eat up. Those who speak this language know what it takes to sell you on your worth, they're the only pep talkers you'll ever need. Engage in meaningful conversations and be a walking reminder of how much they mean to you and how proud you are of them.
People who find love in words like to feel supported and believed in.

TIME
Spending time with your loved ones doing activities that you both enjoy make the world a better place for the speakers of time. Planning weekend trips, walking through the park or playing a board game after dinner is better than any amount of gold. Turn off your phone and engage with your partner, don't just say you're going to do things with them actually do, make it a priority to be really with them.
Being present and fully in the moment make those feel special and like the only loved up puppy on Earth.

TASKS
Making the day-to-day tasks easier for this person is the most thoughtful thing you can do. These are the kinds of people who find satisfaction in having a clean home or knowing that the people in their lives have everything they need. Lighten their load by offering a hand when they get too snowed in, or giving them a day off from the regular bustle. Really make it your job to pull your load of the weight it makes life a whole lot sweeter for those who show their love through services.
Actions speak far louder than words, they like to be shown you care by taking care of them.

Hopefully through this blog you've learnt something about yourself or your loved ones you weren't aware of that will bring a deeper connection. Knowing how people give love is a great insight into how they tick and can help validate a person and the role they play in your life.

  1. Ahh I love love languages! Mine is Quality Time... my boyfriend isn't here to do the quiz at the moment but I believe his are words of affirmation and physical touch.

    1. Physical touch is mine! But if we're being honest all are just so lovely to give and receive. It's so fascinating to me how people show and like to be shown love, what a wonderful thing the variety is indeed!

Dealing With Online Criticism: Brushing It Off & Moving Forwards

My first personal run-in with online criticism occurred this week in a somewhat odd and unexpected fashion but unexpected is to be expected when it comes to me as I'm just a wild child and would rather not walk in a straight line. I've never been one to dish out hate online as (and correct me if I'm wrong) I feel it just clashes with The Resplendent Lioness brand I'm trying to build but at the same time I've never really received it either. Actually I take that back, I did feel personally attacked a handful of times when I had my Taylor Swift fan account back in 2014 whenever someone openly claimed that they didn't like her. 14 year old me was scared but down to fight when it came to being a Swiftie.
It was a roller-coaster of emotions the first 10 minutes after reading someones unnecessary and uneducated opinion on my blog in an online community help page but once I stepped off the ride and allowed my feet to hit solid ground again the hills didn't seem a…

Creating Content: The Other Side Of Productivity & Inspiration

I haven't felt uber inspired to produce this weeks blog to be completely honest as I haven't been in a super great frame of mind. My thoughts have been scatty and my emotions have been strewn across my bedroom floor like dirty clothes I need to put in the wash but simply can't be bothered to. These feelings are partially to do with me wanting my content to be perfect and placing immense amounts of pressure on myself that would result in pooping rainbows or growing a second head. But just like every other week, Thursday rolls around and I have nothing, no inspiration or motivation to sit down and pour the next 12 hours into writing which is a draining standard I've gotten a little too used to.
Even when I don't have a hard hitting subject to cover or questions to raise I still wish to keep my steady rhythm of posting every Thursday because even though creating new content can drive me up the wall it still very much keeps me sane and it would feel like a part of me …

Living In Fear: Goodbye To Old Trauma & Hello To Your Genuine Truth

We are blessed to be alive in a day and age where technology is at an all-time high, international solo travel is more than possible and safer than ever, information is abundant and overflowing from every open stream of consciousness but we still live so much of our lives in fear. There is nothing wrong with fear like there is nothing wrong with anything that ever was, but living in survival mode for your whole life is not thriving like you and me were born to. Fear is something all humans feel, you can't not as it's kind of ingrained into our make-up after long lines of ancestral trauma and because we're animals with survival instincts. But times have changed and you don't need to shelter yourself in a blanket of fear anymore because we are at a point in evolution where staying 'safe' is far more dangerous than putting yourself out on the line.
A little over a month ago I fell apart and in that process I dropped and shattered the hard protective coating I enc…

Nothing Turns Me On Like Good Aesthetics Do: My Favourites

Follow my blog with Bloglovin
So often the little things go unseen and overlooked but without these forgotten tiny miracles the world would be pretty damn lackluster. I personally seek the little precious moments that you could melt into and hold onto forever, they keep me optimistic and make me feel infinite in a dimension that feels a little too physically restrictive for my liking. How someone notices, views, feels these moments speaks volumes when it comes to knowing how in tune or out of touch they are with source energy. Right now I want to bring your attention back to the little things so you can stay more aware and open to them throughout your day. It is a constant reminder to look up and watch the clouds when you've kept your eyes on the ground for so long but it is worth it because missing out on such magic would be the deepest of tragedies.

Here is a list of some of my favourite little things using your very basic but priceless five senses smell, sound, sight, touch an…
