Single on Valentine’s Day? Treat Yourself to Self Care
Ah, Valentine’s Day – a holiday to celebrate love with the one you love. Well, that sounds great and all if you’re in a relationship – but what about if you’re single? What should you do, spend the entire day moping around eating copious amounts of mini Twix? That’s an option, but a better option is to spend the day practicing copious amounts of self-care.
Here are some ideas to show yourself how much you love you:
Start your day right by making sure you rehydrate after a long slumber. Remember, real hydration is as much about replenishing electrolytes as it is getting in water. To help, you can add a little sea salt, ginger or watermelon into your water or sip on some delicious coconut water. Proper hydration is not just about physical health but it also helps keep our mood elevated.
Meet up with a Friend
This Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday, so most of us are going to have to go to work. Maybe see if you can carve out a break in your day to meet up with a friend. Self-care is about stopping, relaxing, and reconnecting with ourselves and those we care about.
Take Yourself Out on a Date
Why not go out for a nice meal with yourself. Is there a cute cafe or diner close by that you love or have been wanting to try? Then why not treat yourself?
Chocolate? Wine? Finish the Day with Some Spa Time
Wind down the day with a luxurious and lengthy bubble bath. How about some good chocolate? Light some candles and sip a glass of wine while you soak in the tub — savor your life – and take some time in intentional gratitude.
Whether we have a significant other or not – it’s important that we remember the significance of ourselves!
