Celebrate You on Valentine's Day

Celebrate You on Valentine's Day 1

If you are single on Valentine’s Day, candy boxes, flowers, and super-sweet greeting cards might start to get old. Here are several fun ideas to celebrate you on Valentine’s Day.

Celebrate with Friends  

Invite your single friends over and party it up. It is not about emphasizing aloneness or looking for dates. Instead, it is about having fun together. Make a few tasty hors d’oeuvres and ask your friends to bring a potluck dish or dessert.

Make it a Movie Night

Make it a movie night. Skip the party and invite one or two friends over to watch a classic. Whether it is The Notebook or Love & Basketball, we guarantee you can find one on Netflix. If you choose to be alone, pick your favorite actor or actress and have a movie marathon. Make some popcorn, enjoy your favorite beverage, put on your most comfortable pajamas and indulge the night away.

Relax and Relate

Take care of you in style. Make a date with a friend (or just you) to get a massage. It might be a splurge, but the health benefits are numerous. Massages help with anxiety, aid sleep, and reduce headaches. If you do not want to spend the money on a massage, plan a long walk to your favorite scenic place or take a long bubble bath. Whatever you choose, make the day all about you.

Practice Gratitude

Life experiences can make us more grateful for what we have than by giving something back. Sign up to volunteer on Valentine’s Day. Deliver meals to someone who needs a visitor—you could learn a lot from them. Check to see if there are any Valentine’s Day events at community centers. Participate in a fun run to raise money for heart research. Whatever you choose, do it with passion and we promise you will feel refreshed afterward.

Valentine’s Day is not just about couples celebrating love. Make the day about loving you. Plan out your perfect day and enjoy it.
