Happy Almost Valentine’s Day!!
I can’t believe we’re just about half way done with February! I hope you’ve been having a wonderful month (and year) so far. ((:
I know a lot of people don’t like Valentine’s Day too much, whether it be because of the mushy gushy love stuff, the stress of finding yet another gift for your significant other, or something entirely different.
But guess what? Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about a love interest, a date, or a romantic partner! It can be about YOU and loving YOURSELF. I’m so excited to share these 17 ways to show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day with you!
The truth is, the relationship you have with yourself sets the tone for everything else in your life: your relationship with others, your mindset, your moods and satisfaction levels, your success, and so much more! So if your relationship with yourself is lacking, so are many other parts of your life.
Unfortunately, too often, we tend to give all our love to others around us – which is wonderful – but we have to save some for ourselves!
We have to share some lovin’ with ourselves because our cup must be topped off before we can truly fulfill anyone else.
But how do we do that?! Luckily for you, I’m about to give you 17 ways to show yourself some love this valentine’s day. (;
17 ways to show yourself some love this valentine’s day
Self-love does not have to be complicated; it can be as simple or as extravagant as you want! Likewise, it doesn’t have to be crazy expensive, unless you want it to be.
The ideas I’m about to give you are just that – ideas – so when thinking about how to show yourself some love, consider what you like and enjoy and what you don’t, what you have the budget for, and what you think would be the best way to show yourself some love. ((:
Without further ado, let’s get to it! 17 ways to show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day (and every day)…
buy yourself flowers
Why wait for a romantic interest to buy you flowers when you can buy them yourself?!
get your nails done
Head to the salon and get some love-themed nails, or do them yourself at home!
switch up your hairstyle
There are few things more exciting than giving your hair a little refresh… it doesn’t have to be anything crazy, even just a trim makes me feel like a brand new person!
add some new ink to your skin
If you’ve been wanting a new tattoo… here’s your sign to go get it.
make a list of all the things you love about yourself
A great practice to do at any time, but especially around Valentine’s Day when there’s a little extra love in the air!
make a list of all the things you’re proud of yourself for
Another thing that’s great to do any day of the year; this will make your mood and confidence SKYROCKET.
eat at your favorite restaurant
By yourself, with a lover or friend(s), eating out can be fun any way you slice it! Dress up a little to make it even more fun. (;
pick up a new book
Check one out from the library, buy an eBook online, or visit a cute bookstore!
get a massage
Relax and get rejuvenated with a professional massage… or make your partner give one to you. (;
book a trip you’ve been wanting to go on for a while
I find it SO fun to shop around for trips, and having one to look forward to is an immense amount of fun!
Call up your adventure buddy, and get that trip on the calendar!
cuddle up on the couch and watch your favorite show or movie
By yourself or with someone else, this option is perfect if you’re craving some relaxation.
get a facial (or do it at home!)
Another great option if you’re looking for some relaxation and pampering! Plus, if you’re doing this at home, you can make it a full spa day by doing your nails and cuddling up on the couch with a book or your favorite show.
re-arrange your space
Give yourself and your space a little refresh by re-arranging and re-decorating! I love switching out seasonal decorations to really get in the spirit of the seasons.
buy that outfit you’ve been eyeing
You know the one I’m talking about!! Whether it’s shoes, a dress, pants, a workout set… TREAT YOURSELF!
treat yourself to some new jewelry
Go buy some new shiny toys for yourself… earrings, a ring or necklace, whatever you want!
go for a walk and listen to your favorite podcast
Movement will do wonders for your mind and body, and it’s especially helpful when working on your self-love.
make a new playlist that makes you feel amazing and dance around to it
Another great way to get some movement in is dancing around to a playlist that makes you feel on top of the world! I promise you will never regret dancing around like a fool.
