From where I’m sitting there’s more than a foot of snow out of my back door, needless to say I have no plans to go anywhere and I know, in this weather I’m not the only alone. With that being said it is Valentine’s Day, but not everyone will be have a Valentine or be able to get to theirs so here are 10 ways to love yourself this V-Day. Enjoy!
“Today’s Valentine’s Day. There’s a whole day devoted solely to love. Does that make any sense? Nah. Love makes us all crazy. But it’s fun too.” — Lisa Greenwald
1. Compliment Yourself
We don’t spend enough time saying positive things about ourselves. There’s no way to truly love yourself if you are not capable of giving yourself compliment. I can identify with this myself, I am my own worst critic, so today think positive about yourself, better yet say it out loud, it’s okay if you don’t want the world to hear it, it only matters that you do!
2. Treat Yourself to Lunch
When’s the last time you had a good meal? I mean really good, to the point that everything was exactly the way you envisioned it and tasted better than you could have dreamed. Make a meal (or buy one) that makes you happy. Have that Jack Daniel’s burger with all the trimmings and extra sauce if you want, it won’t hurt!
3. Have A Spa Day
The saying goes that when you look good, you feel good, so pay special attention to yourself today by giving or getting a facial, manicure, eyebrow wax, body scrub or whatever else makes you feel truly beautiful inside and out.
4. Write Yourself A Love Note
Notes are little reminders that we need. Write yourself a love note, describing what you love about yourself, your goals and what makes you happy. A love note to yourself will be a reminder of what makes you unique, it’s a good pick-me-up to have when you aren’t feeling your best.
5. Watch A Movie, Read A Book
Media is entertainment and luckily there are different forms of it. Watch a movie or some shows you’ve been meaning to catch up on. Read that book you got for Christmas. Now is a good time catch up on what you’ve been missing.
6. Love Your Body
Love yourself by loving your body. A good workout always makes me feel good about myself. It gives me energy and makes me feel like I’ve already accomplished something for the day. Treat your body well and be active.
7. Help Others
Contribute to society by volunteering this Valentine’s Day. Help others with their needs, even something as simple as helping a neighbor dig their way out of this snowstorm would be nice and when you help others you feel good.
8. Clean Up and Clean Out
Need to clean out your closet? It’s the perfect time to get rid of old things, and make room for new. Clear out the clutter and create a new environment for yourself. Love yourself enough to make your space clean and comfortable to be in.
9. Splurge A Little
Buy yourself something nice, whether it be those boots you’ve wanted for weeks, or that necklace that’s finally on sale. Treat yourself to something nice the Valentine’s Day because you deserve it.
10. Just Relax
Everyone needs down time, time to do nothing but lay around and enjoy the moment, so relax, breathe and do what makes you happy and if doing nothing is that, then do nothing.
