Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and show the people around you that you care, but it’s also important to remember another special someone: yourself!
Whether it’s just another day for you or if you have big plans for the holiday, Valentine’s Day is a great reason to get a jump start on self-love, single or attached. There are many ways to refuel your mind, body and spirit, so here are a few ideas for a day of self-care.
I’m guilty of grabbing coffee and heading out the door in the morning. Take care of yourself by taking a few minutes to enjoy a healthy breakfast- even if you have to bring it in to the office. I love simple yet nutritious breakfasts– avocado toast, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs or yogurt and granola.
Focus on how you want to feel
Do you want to feel supported, respected, loved? Ask yourself the important question, “how do you want to feel?” I learned this from Gabby Bernstein, who shared that when you start focusing on what you want to manifest in your life, you begin to surround myself with what you ask for. The power of positivity works!
Post positive statements on your vanity or say them in the mirror. Each morning as you get ready for the day, these powerful little reminders will help to give you a jump start on your day. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
Write down the positives
Journaling has always been a helpful activity for me, but I never thought to write down compliments and happy moments that happen throughout the day. It’s so easy for me to focus on the negative things, so writing down the positives has helped with my self care. Stop being so hard on yourself!
Go enjoy a movie, pick up a bouquet of flowers, buy yourself a gift, indulge in a hot fudge sundae or spend an evening with friends. Do something that makes you happy!
However you’re spending your day, remember: you are worthy!
