If you’re single on Valentine’s Day – don’t you dare go get all depressed and cry in a vat of ice cream this year. There’s no need for you to feel inadequate in any way simply because you aren’t partnered-up. This means there’s more time on your schedule for the self-care and you don’t have to compromise on how you go about caring for yourself.
Here are our top 3 ways to level-up your self-care this Valentine’s Day and know that you’ve got this single thing down.
- Meditate or do Yoga – take some personal quiet time to reflect and quiet the noisy chatter. It will put you in the right frame of mind to take on the day with a Positive mental attitude. Positive Mental Attitude (PMA) is a concept first developed and introduced in 1937 by Napoleon Hill in the book Think and Grow Rich. … Positive mental attitude is the philosophy that having an optimistic disposition in every situation in one’s life attracts positive changes and increases achievement.

- Practice Gratitude – Research shoes Gratitude can improve your physical health, people who practice gratitude report fewer aches and pains, a general feeling of health exercise more, enjoy higher wellbeing & happiness and suffer less of depression. It’s worth noting people who practice gratitude have an increased self-esteem, partly due to their ability to appreciate self and others accomplishments. A gratitude jar or journal is a great exercise, simply start writing daily gratitude’s and when you feel down or need a pick me up, pull some reminders out of the jar or reference your journal. Gratitude can boost the neurotransmitter serotonin and activate the release of dopamine. Dopamine is our brains pleasure chemical. The more we think positive, grateful thoughts, the healthier and happier we feel.
- Do something that makes you happy – Taking action is the best form of self-love. Do somethings that makes you smile and feel good. This is personal and different for each of us. It may be a hike in nature, a tough workout, a trip to the spa, hanging with family or friends, reading a book cozied up with some hot tea, a face mask and some gourmet chocolate, after all it is a chocolate lovers’ day. Whatever makes you smile, schedule time for it.
Be Your Own Valentine
Regardless of your relationship status, being your own best Valentine is something you can do for Valentine’s Day and all year round. Whether you are partnered up or thriving through life solo, you can make Valentine’s Day inspiration a year-round thing by putting your needs front and center. No, this does not mean being selfish – it simply means you can know yourself, what your needs are physically, mentally, spiritually, socially (etc.) and not be afraid to arrange your life so those needs are being met.
You can also show others how you like to be treated by having self-love and self-respect standards. Self-care isn’t about being self-centered – not at all – but about being kind and caring enough with yourself to take good care of you.
