Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and although this holiday represents love in all its forms, many people can end up feeling lonely and unwanted on February 14th. It’s a common misconception that you need a significant other to celebrate this special day, but that couldn’t be further from the truth!
This holiday is a great opportunity to show your friends, family, coworkers, etc., how much you love and appreciate everything they do for you. But perhaps the most important relationship in your life that deserves some appreciation is the one you have with yourself.
Here are a few ways to invest in your relationship with yourself this Valentine’s Day!
It’s important to reflect inward and pay attention to your inner monologue. How do you talk to yourself? Do you call yourself names in your head when you make a mistake? Do you come up with reasons why you shouldn’t speak up at the work meeting because you don’t feel what you have to say is important enough? Do you criticize how your body looks in the mirror while getting ready for a date?
There are so many ways we use our inner dialogue every day to self-sabotage. This February, show yourself some extra love and use your inner voice to speak positively about yourself. You can’t give love to others unless you love yourself first.
Spend Time Doing Things You Love
On Valentine’s Day, we do things for our loved ones to show we appreciate them. From cards, flowers, chocolates, and date nights, we choose things we know the people in our life will love. When investing in your relationship with yourself this holiday season, think of the things you would want someone to do for you and do them for yourself!
Spend the day getting your nails done, ordering your favorite meal, taking a walk to your favorite places around the city, completing a workout class, or doing anything that makes you happy and feels good. No one else is responsible for your happiness except you.
Get Out of Your Comfort Zone
Investing in yourself means personal growth, and personal growth cannot come from doing the same things you always do. Try doing an activity out of your comfort zone and explore a new interest, hobby, or something you’ve always thought about doing but never had the courage to try. Getting out of your comfort zone allows you to explore parts of yourself you never knew existed, leading you to become more in tune with yourself. The better you know yourself, the more confident and comfortable you will feel opening your heart to others.
