Valentine’s day has come around again! We’re all in need of some TLC and it’s important to show yourself some love once in a while. Whether you have a significant other or you are single this Valentine’s day, here are some last minute and inexpensive things that you can do to show you some love! After all, as NotesOnBliss puts it, “self-love is not selfish; you cannot truly love until you know how to love yourself”.
1) Positively affirm yourself and list all the things you love about yourself.
2) Have a pamper day.
Whether its a D.I.Y pamper day or you go to a spa for a treatment, make sure you do something for yourself to relax and unwind.
3) Eat well.
Eat a nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner – you’ll feel great and your body will thank you for it!
4) Write a self-love letter to your future self and open it next Valentine’s Day.
5) Pass on the love.
Do something nice for someone such as buying a them a coffee or even smiling at someone. How you make others feel counts so show yourself how generous you can be and get the snowball effect rolling.
6. Have a praise and worship morning.
Spend time with God, basking in his love and being filled with His spirit. Express your gratitude for his love for you and be reminded that the Lord is your one true love.
7. Have a chilled evening, binge watch TV and don’t feel guilty about it.
8. Take yourself on a date.
A gallery, a museum, your favourite coffee shop – any place you really want to go.
Cut out the stress and negativity for the day and intentionally work on being still and at peace.
10. Get dressed up.
Do your hair, your makeup and dress up for fun. Take some pictures and make yourself feel beautiful!
11. Buy yourself something nice.
12. Accomplish something you have always wanted to accomplish.
Give yourself the gift of focus. Get something done that you have been putting off that your future self will thank you for.
13. Have a girls night out.
Don’t waste getting dressed up! Call up some of your girls and get together for a meal or a trip to the cinema. Just because you’re single it doesn’t mean that you have to spend valentines day alone!
14. Try something new.
A new experience, a new way of doing things… Refresh your perspective and operate from a place of love.
