BUT, whether you’re coupled or not, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be the crazy holiday the media has made it out to be…it can actually be an awesome day to remind us about love. Particularly, about loving ourselves!
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love & affection.” -Buddha
The best thing about giving yourself a gift is that you know you’ll love it! Need some inspiration? Below are five easy, affordable ways to show some self-love this Valentine’s Day!
- Enjoy a tasty treat! Have a glass of bubbly! Indulge in your favorite dessert! We also love these (actually healthy) raspberry white chocolate bites!
- Recharge your batteries! Seriously…GIVE. YOURSELF. A. BREAK. We know you don’t often (we don’t either), so take this opportunity to take a breather! Take a day off from work, go to that yoga class you’ve been skipping, veg out and flip through your favorite magazines or go see a movie in the middle of the day all by yourself. Whatever it is, just disconnect from the daily grind and do it!
- Buy yourself something you’ve been eyeing for a while! Never underestimate the power of retail therapy. We totally understand sticking to a budget, but sometimes you just have to splurge a little. If you’ve weighed the options on that new bag for four months now, maybe this is the perfect time to get it!
- Enjoy some self-indulgence! Sometimes it feels great to get all jazzed up for no specific reason! Get your hair blown out, rock some new heels, get a mani/pedi…whatever makes you feel good!
- TREAT YO SELF! Take a luxurious bath, head to the spa for a massage, get fresh flowers for your house, buy a new outfit, go out to dinner, purchase a month of ClassPass and connect with fellow endorphin junkies, etc. etc.
Remember, you’re worth it!
