But not the mushy, romance novel, vomit-inducing PDA kind of love (at least not exclusively).
Lucky for you, we’ve compiled what we believe to be the 5 main ways to show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day:
Whether it’s binge-watching The Office or hiking up the side of a mountain, you can’t go wrong with taking some time to do something you truly enjoy.
And if you don’t want to be alone, you can always…
For some, it may be the last thing you want to do. But believe it or not, there are those who look forward to quality time with parents, grandparents, siblings, or cousins. If you’re lucky, you’ll get spoiled with a home-cooked meal.
Some friends are as close as family, and they know exactly how to have a good time.
Plan a night out, or in, with your best girls or guys. Go old-school and make Valentine’s for your friends, or send your best friend flowers. Sometimes spoiling yourself involves spoiling the people you care about.
And if you really want to feel good about yourself, why not make some improvements? Mentally, physically, spiritually – take some time to meditate or take a yoga class. Work on a talent or skill you want to improve. Sign up for that new workout class you’ve been meaning to try.
Don’t be afraid to challenge yourself. And then, don’t be afraid to…
What are your favorite things? Eat them. Do them. Buy them. Okay, maybe not all of them, but one or two…or five. Be your own Valentine.
Why wait for someone else to spoil you when you can do it now?
