5 Ways To Treat Yourself On Valentine’s Day or Any Day

February 14, 2020 Sofia McKinney No Comments

Every year Valentine’s Day rolls around and we either think of Galentine’s goals, treating a partner, or lamenting singleness (I know, I know, it’s a stereotype). BUT we often forget about the most important relationship we’ll ever have… the relationship you have with yourself.

So, whether you’re spending the day with friends, a lover, a partner, or solo remember to take time to love and treat yourself!

Here are 5 ways to be your very own Valentine:

Take yourself on a date

We’ve all thought about it. That perfect date that leaves sparkles in your eyes. Take yourself on it! Make it happen! Is there a movie you’ve been wanting to see? Great, grab a cute outfit, stock up on snacks, and enjoy your cinematic adventure!

Breakfast in bed

Is there any other meal with better food than breakfast food?! Not in my opinion. It’s also the meal that is usually rushed. If you’re anything like me you plan to wake up early, make a delicious breakfast, and have time to relax before work. In reality, the snooze button is pressed 20 plus times and I have a piece of toast with peanut butter.

Take the time to make yourself a cup of coffee (or tea!), scramble some eggs, butter that toast, and get some citrus. Put it on a plate. Oo-la-la take that beauty and eat it in bed! Then enjoy the rest of your Valentine’s.

Treat yourself to a spa day

Ah, a day at the spa. Does this need an explanation?

You work hard. You’re a boss. You deserve a massage. Take the time to allow yourself to have a breather. Sit in the sauna. Refresh with a facial. Do I need to say more?! Get the spa package!

Write a love letter to yourself

How many times have you written a love letter, a card, a sweet note to someone else? Well, it’s about time you shower yourself in written compliments. You are amazing. You’ve been challenged. You’ve overcome. LOVE yourself.

You are amazing. You’ve been challenged. You’ve overcome. LOVE yourself.

Indulge in a shopping spree

That sweater you’ve been wanting, that book you’ve been waiting for? Get it, girl.

We often wait for a special occasion or celebration to get new things. Why not Valentine’s? You don’t have to wait for someone to give you a gift. You know what you want, go out and get it!
