Are you spending Valentine’s Day all alone? If so, we’ve got a few tips on how you can make this Sunday special, even if you’re by yourself!
Be kind to you! Who says you can’t be your own valentine? Now is the time to treat yourself! Eat the foods you like, sleep in a little late, and do things to pamper you.
Be your own admirer! Go out and buy yourself a gift or anything else that makes you feel special.
Make plans! Go ahead and schedule some time with friends, family, or block off some time to do things that make you feel good. Take a hike, watch a movie, play a video game, or anything else that brings you joy.
Make a date over video chat! Thanks to technology, physical distance doesn’t have to keep people apart. Go ahead and make plans to have a video chat with the people you love.
Brighten someone’s day! The simple act of doing things for others can lift the load of a heavy Valentine’s Day. Try sending a card, a gift, or dish out a little appreciation via a quick chat or instant message to someone you care about.
Avoid triggers! Is Valentine’s Day a holiday that’s hard for you? If so, avoid things that bring up difficult feelings or memories. Distract yourself with a book, hobby, or whatever else fills your cup.
Routine helps! If you’re struggling, remember that a structured schedule is your friend. Try not to get distracted, and remember to carry out your daily tasks.
