7 Ways to Practice Self-Love This Valentine's Day
Valentine's Day is a special day for couples all over the world, but it shouldn't have to exclude all the single people out there.
If you're single on V-Day, you are definitely not alone, and just like anyone else, you deserve to feel loved today. Lucky for you, self-love is the most important love of all, so what better way to celebrate V-Day than to practice good old self loving. There are tons of ways to do this, but I'm giving you my top 7 favorites that you can do right now.
1. Make a list
It might feel weird, but one of the best ways to remind yourself of your worth is to list all the things you love about being you! You can keep it in a journal or even decorate it and hang it up in your room, bathroom, or closet!
2. Go to your favorite local spot
Whether it's your bedroom, a park, or your favorite restaurant, take a visit to a place that makes you feel happy & positive. You can either fly solo or bring a friend or family member along with you!
3. Pamper yourself
What better way to show yourself some love than a manicure or massage? Schedule an appointment for some downtime and enjoy every minute of it.
4. Take a social media break
Even if it's for a few hours, try to detox from the outside world and just focus on the present. Social media can be overwhelming and even upsetting at times. Make sure you take some time to shut it down and relax for a while.
5. Forgive yourself
Ask yourself if there's any guilt or regret you have been holding onto. Take today to reflect on it and then forgive yourself and finally move forward.
6. Organize your room or closet
A guaranteed way to feel relief or happiness is to organize yourself. It can be as simple as a drawer or as much as your whole apartment! Either way, the feeling is great.
7. Cook yourself (and even a friend) a meal
Cooking is a great activity that reinforces self-love for so many reasons. You're learning a new recipe, taking your mind off the rest of the world, and then enjoying the delicious meal you prepared! Ask some friends to come and help too, making it the perfect end your Valentine's Day of self-love.
