5 Self-Care Tips for Valentine’s Day

This time of year is all about showing we care for the ones we love, doing something special to mark the occasion, and treating that special someone with a gift. Valentine’s Day is often deemed exclusive for those in a relationship, and can be a difficult time for singletons. We’re here to explain how you can care for someone you love and do something special for that person – yourself.

Spend Time With Friends

At a time for making memories with those you love, what better than spending time with friends? Use Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to reach out, reconnect and get together. Meeting up with friends doesn’t have to be labelled ‘Galentine’s’, it can be as low-key or as high-key as you want, just spend quality time together and enjoy.

Take a Social Media Break

Although social media has its uses, it can be an unrealistic space for comparison, expectation and pressure. Over the Valentine’s Day period, try not to compare yourself to others. If it’s not benefiting you to scroll, take a break from social media altogether. Read a book, watch your favourite film, or if you’re feeling productive, catch up on some work. You’ll feel better for it.

Do Something You Love

Whether it’s going for a walk, to the gym or for some retail therapy, do something you love this Valentine’s Day to make yourself smile. We often take time to think about what other people want, but it’s also important to put yourself first from time to time and take care of your own wellbeing.
