With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s important to remember that the best kind of love is self-love. Whether you’re in a relationship or single, Valentine’s Day should be a day to celebrate all kinds of love – self-love included.

It’s easy to get caught up in thinking that Valentine’s Day is only a day for couples. In a time where social media, depictions of the perfect relationship, and “couple goals”, it’s very easy to write off doing anything solo.

Here is your reminder that that is simply not the case! If you’re single on Valentine’s Day, embrace that! Take this as a day to practice some self-care and pamper yourself. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Make yourself a special dinner. It can either be your favorite recipe or something that you’ve never tried before.
  • Have a night of rest and relaxation. Take a bubble bath or binge watch your favorite show or movie.
  • Go on a solo date.
  • Treat yourself to a massage or a new item to add to your closet.
  • Order some special treats. Have a favorite bakery or ice cream shop? Don’t be shy, order up your favorite delicacies!

There are so many things you can do for yourself. Not just on Valentine’s day, but any day of the year. Remember to always take the time to show yourself the love that you deserve.
