Personally, Valentine’s Day isn’t a big deal for me. However, it definitely draws attention to the fact that me and a lot of other people in the world are single – therefore we should feel sad about it. BUT it shouldn’t be like that! You can enjoy Valentine’s Day even if you’re single. Here are some of my tips to show how you can turn it into a Me Day instead of the day of feeling insecure and bad about yourself.
- Get out there and buy some chocolate for yourself!
There’s nothing bad about treating yourself every once in a while. Let’s visit the corner shop and buy some of your favourite snacks so you can enjoy them later in the day! I know I wouldn’t mind doing this and it actually would make me feel a lot better.
2. Burst out your fave music when you’re home and have a nice time!
I absolutely love listening to some of my favourite bands and artists when I want to feel happy. No matter what, this always gets me in a great mood. You can even invite your friends and have some fun together.
3. Read a nice book!
One of the best past time activities in my opinion is reading. It lets you zone out for a while and you only focus on what’s happening in the book, not on the world around you. If you don’t have any book in your possession right now, then let’s head to the nearest book store and buy an interesting one! My favourite genre is contemporary, but I recently read a historical fiction book as well (The Book Thief), which I really liked.
4. Spend some time on Youtube!
This is a go to for me whenever I want to spend some time. Watching Youtube videos is entertaining for everyone, since there are so many different types of content on there. It allows you to kill some time as well, and you won’t even notice that the whole day is gone, trust me!
5. Try to cook or bake something!
Last, but by no means least, I would like to recommend cooking and baking for you. Even if you don’t feel confident in any of them, you can find very easy recipes out there, you just have to look for them. This is such a relaxing activity and it can be a fun time, too. You can listen to music in the process of baking a cake or cooking some dinner, or even an audiobooks or podcasts. I enjoy cooking alone, since in a way, it’s some ‘me time’ as well. This way you can take a small portion out of your day and relax a bit while making something delicious. You can even brag about the outcome on Instagram later, but that’s not necessary, just an idea, haha! :D
I really hope you enjoyed reading this post and got something from it! My main point is, Valentine’s Day is just a regular day after all, and everyone can enjoy it, not just those in a relationship. You have to take care of yourself and don’t feel bad about not having someone special in your life at the moment. Someone will come when it’s the right time, so don’t stress about any of it!
Have a wonderful day! See you soon! :)
