The celebration of love is on it’s way, and we can’t wait! Cuz we’re making this Valentine’s Day the best one yet by celebrating someone who really deserves it: YOU! While we think everyday should be the day you celebrate yourself, this year is your chance to be your own Valentine in these easy ways.
♥️ EAT EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT
Calories? What are those? Macros? Oh you mean macarons! It’s Valentine's Day queen, so eat what you want. From chocolate chip cookies to greasy hamburgers, there’s no limit to what you can enjoy. This is your day.
♥️ WRITE A LOVE LETTER TO YOUR BODY
You’ve heard of writing yourself an affirmation letter, but why not write a letter to your body?! Thank your body for being beautiful and allowing you to experience your own life. Thank it for all it can do and apologize for being unfair to it in the past. It may sound silly but you’ll be surprised how good you feel afterwards.
♥️ BUY ONE THING YOU DON’T NEED
Have you had your eye on something that you really, really want? Have you been talking yourself out of it time after time because you just don’t NEED it? Well now’s your time to shine! Be your own Valentine and indulge in that one thing you don’t need!
♥️ SLEEP IN - A LOT
Sleeping in after a really good sleep is the best way to treat yourself for Valentine’s Day. Cancel your morning plans, invest in some blackout shades, and use earplugs if needed. Don’t let the hustle of the day wreck your fun.
♥️ SEE A MOVIE SOLO
Now’s the time to see the movie you would never in a million years convince anyone else to see. If you’ve never seen a movie alone, don’t knock it till you try it! Going to the movies solo is a liberating experience and we couldn’t recommend it enough.
♥️ BOOK A PHOTOSHOOT
One of the most fun things you can ever do for yourself is have a professional photo shoot! Have a favorite photographer you follow on social media? Ask them if they’re offering special discounts for Valentine’s Day. Find a photographer with a fun personality so you’ll feel comfortable and go have a party! You can use your new, professional photos for holiday cards, dating profiles, or frame them! It sounds self-indulgent, but you’ll be glad to have fabulous photos of YOU!
♥️ SPREAD THE LOVE
A guaranteed cure for loneliness is to spend time helping others. If Valentine’s Day hasn’t been your favorite day in the past, chances are you know someone who feels the same way. Teach them how they can be their own Valentine this year! Invite them to join you when you buy that one thing you don’t need. Take them out for lunch! Whatever works for you, don’t hesitate to spread the love.
♥️ BUILD YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU
The relationship you have with yourself is the most important one you’ll ever have, so keep building it! Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love, so why not take time to learn how to cherish and cultivate self-love? Remind yourself in a journal, video, or to a mirror that you don’t need to compare yourself to others, it’s okay to make mistakes, and that your value doesn’t lie in your physical appearance. You could even make a video for yourself that you watch next Valentine’s Day, like a long lost love reminding you how incredible you are. Do whatever works for you to build the relationship you have with yourself!
We hope you have a happy February 14th! You have the best and most incredible Valentine around who’s about to spoil you rotten! So go ahead. Be your own Valentine!
