Valentine’s Day is sneaking up on us! It tends to happen every year. Valentine’s Day can cause a lot of pressure, both for those in a relationship and for us single folks. It shouldn’t have to be! We took a vote this year and decided… we’re going to treat ourselves this Valentine’s Day! You with us? Then here are some ideas on how to make this day all about you.
Wake Up Right
Listen to your body. If you need a bit more sleep than usual; hit snooze! But don’t sleep the day away. You have pampering to do! Wake up refreshed and ready to spoil yourself rotten.
Take a Moment
Find somewhere quiet and where you feel safe and just take a moment to breathe. Meditate as needed. Only speak kindly to yourself and have your thoughts be positive and filled with gratitude. Create affirmations for yourself that will help you throughout the day.
Activate Your Senses
Lighting your favorite candle can instantly change your mood. Candles are great for creating a cozy and enjoyable atmosphere.
Trust us when we say the right song can fix anything. Blast your favorite band or song and dance like crazy. Then repeat the song and do it again. Music can lift our moods and help us live outside ourselves for a moment.
Splurge a Little!
Be honest, there is something that you have been dying to get, but the idea of spending money makes you a bit anxious. We all deal with moments like that. But today you are going to get that special something because you deserve it! Visit your favorite local business, say hello, and pick up something just for you!
Surround Yourself With Your Loved Ones
You don’t necessarily need to spend the day solo. Meet up with friends or family and spend the day together. Go out for coffee, see a movie together, go shopping, or make big plans to celebrate the night away!
Buy Yourself Flowers
You don’t need to wait around for someone to buy you flowers. Go out and buy yourself a bouquet of your fave flowers! If you’re not much a of flower person, fill your home with something green like succulents or a cactus. They are easy to care for and will brighten your room.
Work on a Hobby
Use today to work on a skill you would like to have. It could be anything! If you’re a makeup lover like us, then work on perfecting the perfect eyeliner wing. Practice playing an instrument, cooking, writing, finally reading that book you’ve been putting off, singing, even working on finishing your favorite TV show. Hey, it takes skills to sit down and watch an entire season of Friends. Put in your work and then pat yourself on the back.
A day about yourself should obviously include some TLC. Treat yourself to a spa day! Getting a massage or facial will help you relax and find renewed energy. Something as simple as a manicure or pedicure can do wonders for the soul.
Whatever you do, make sure it’s something that betters yourself and makes you happy. Valentine’s Day is the day to celebrate love. Might as well start with yourself! Find us on Facebook and Instagram to show us how you treated yourself!
