On the other hand, show your family some by planning something special for them. They’ll still appreciate it and Valentine’s Day also lets you celebrate different types of love apart from romantic love. This includes babysitting your nieces and nephews and evading their sugar rushes so that your siblings can go on a romantic date with their loved ones.
Suppose you’re filled with community spirit and want to pay it forward in society. Then, you can do a small book drive put aside clothes that you no longer need, plus other items that you’re comfortable donating to deserving people. You can also spend Valentine’s Day in a children’s home or a rescue center by cooking food together, playing games, and sharing words of inspiration with them. It might feel like a small gesture, but the kids will never forget it.
You’ve survived life this long in a crazy pandemic that’s turning the world upside down. So, why not show yourself love on Valentine’s Day. Make a list that includes some of your bucket lists items that you can do alone. So, on Valentine’s Day, you can plan a fun solo shopping spree or pamper yourself with beauty treatments followed by a chilled dinner out at a fancy restaurant to treat yourself. If not, you can do a night-in kind of chilled vibe by ordering food, including dessert and booze, experimenting with new recipes, watching your favorite series, or dancing to your music alone.
This type of self-care means that you don’t have to worry about pouring from an empty cup. Self-care is a good thing that lets you focus on looking after yourself, and it improves your emotional health so that you can handle stress better. It’ll also protect you from feelings of anxiety and loneliness that single people might experience during Valentine’s Day.
