Spending Valentine’s Day alone can often mean scrolling through pictures of couples on social media and purchasing discounted chocolate the following day, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s a list of ways to make this Valentine’s Day filled with self-love and growth, without the help of a significant other.

  • Treat yourself. Create your own DIY spa or eat the most unhealthy (but delicious) meal you love. Just do whatever makes you happy and don’t be afraid to splurge a little.
  • Learn how to make a new recipe. Pull out those secret family recipes you have always wanted to test out or tackle new recipes that spark your interest.
  • Go thrifting. Go explore the wonders and beauty of thrift stores. You never know what you may find.
  • Keep a journal. You can write about anything going on in your life or problems you are having. You can even write about your cat. Be creative with it.
  • Meditate. Take some time to unwind and be in the present. Meditation will help keep you at ease.
  • Binge watch your favorite movies or television shows. You could watch some that have your favorite celebrity crushes or even discover new shows.
  • Get creative. Buy paints and a canvas and paint whatever you want. It doesn’t just have to be a painting, you can make collages or anything else that comes to mind.
  • Get started on a New Year’s resolution. This year is still just getting started. Go out there and be bold.
  • Practice self-love. Realize how valuable and important you are, with or without a significant other. Be patient and try not to stress over things you can’t control.
