How to Throw Yourself a Self-Care Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! And while that’s exciting for some people, for others…not so much. So how do you turn a holiday centered around love into something that you can enjoy alone? Turn it into a self-care Valentine’s Day, of course! Here are a few tips to help you start planning.

Treat Yourself

Even if you don’t typically like to buy into this Hallmark holiday, you should try to treat yourself to something special – maybe it’s a snack you never allow yourself to have or a must-have item you’ve wanted to splurge on. Whatever your treat is, you deserve it!

Sleep In

If you have the luxury of doing so, take the day off, or at least commit to a half-day so you can get some much-needed rest to start your day. Otherwise, try going to bed a little earlier the night before.

Change Up Your Dinner Plans

Don’t eat leftovers again! Instead, make a dinner date with one of your besties or, if you prefer to stay home, order takeout from your favorite restaurant. However you do it, just make sure you don’t have another boring meal.

Pamper Yourself

Depending on what your idea of pampering entails, you could go all out with a spa treatment extravaganza or try an at-home face mask while snuggling up to a good book. Whatever pampering looks like to you is perfectly fine!

Ditch Social Media

Instead of falling victim to comparing your V-Day to anyone else’s, focus on yourself. Forget about the world, and give yourself that social media detox you didn’t know you were craving. Your Valentine’s plans are perfect for you, and that’s all that matters.

Tap Into Your Favorite Hobby

If you have a favorite hobby, today is the day to do it! Whether it is something you haven’t had the time for in a while or something you practice every day, if it brings you joy, it’s a must for your self-care Valentine’s Day agenda.

Don’t Feel Burdened to Plan the Perfect Day

Of course, you should never feel pressured to do something different on Valentine’s Day. Planning something special can be overwhelming, and it can be a major letdown if it doesn’t work out. So, don’t feel burdened to plan that perfect day. If you want to sit back and binge some Netflix, then that’s what was meant to be!

Planning a self-care Valentine’s Day may be just what the doctor ordered! There’s no need to put pressure on finding the perfect date; just focus on what you want to do, and you’ll be perfectly fine.
