Within our society, Valentine’s Day is still seen as a day for lovers to celebrate their relationship. For many single people – including myself – Valentine’s Day is one of the days where they feel even more lonely and it can be really hard to struggle through. But why should Valentine’s Day only be for lovers? Let’s turn this day into a day for self-love!
Hi, my name is Chloë, I own a lifestyle blog over at chlodoeslife.com and today I got the wonderful opportunity to write a guest post for Mind. Beauty. Simplicity.
Valentine’s Day = Self-Love Day
Something I see too often in today’s society is that we don’t take enough time to love ourselves. We’re always in a hurry with a thousand projects going on at the same time and often neglect our own needs in the process. Our bodies are temples and we need to take care of them.
Organise A Spa Day
Depending on the budget you have available, either book a trip to the spa or create your own at home. Go to the store and buy some products that will help you relax. I personally really love Nuxe or Rituals, but there are plenty of other (more affordable) brands that will offer the same type of products.
Vanilla and lavender are two scents that are often associated with relaxation. Fill up your bathtub, put some bubbles in it, turn the lights off and light some candles. Grab your favourite book and take all the time you need to feel relaxed and taken care of. Your skin will feel refreshed and your mind will feel more at ease.
Cook Your Absolute Favourite Meal
Or have it delivered at your front door if you really don’t like cooking. Food is fuel for our bodies and we are allowed to give in to our cravings. Take time to prepare your meal and carefully slice every single ingredient. Drink a glass of wine in between or any other drink you like and savour the moment.
This day is all about you and you only. You love this meal and deserve to have it. Your body is grateful that you’re taking care of it. It will lift up your mood instantly and help you enjoy your own company.
Put On Your Favourite TV Show
Or movie, if you prefer them. Grab your favourite snack from the cupboard and enjoy it as if it were your last one. Taking care of you includes giving your body the things it’s been craving. Enjoy watching your favourite movie or show to the fullest and try to not think about all the other things you still need to be doing.
Whilst relaxing on the sofa or in your bed and watching your favourite things, put on a face mask. Nourish that skin and let it glow. Become the best version of yourself all from the comfort of your own bed.
Treat Your Body Like A Temple
Love it today, love it tomorrow and love it every day. The only person that ever needs to love you and like you is you. You need to be happy with who you are. Other people’s opinions of you don’t matter – as long as you love yourself, everything will be okay.
These were my tips on how to spend your Valentine’s day as a day for self-love. I hope you liked them. Head over to my blog if you’d like to read more from me! Thanks again to Mind. Beauty. Simplicity for letting me write a guest post for your blog!
