Even if you have that special bae in your life that you are looking forward to spending Valentine’s Day with, or you and your best friends love celebrating Galentine’s, it is important to think about who is most important – yourself. Thinking of yourself and putting yourself first is not selfish, you are stuck with you the rest of your life and it is important to always show yourself self-love and care too!
Here are 10 ideas from FabFitFun on ways to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day –
Get a massage. Couples massages are nice, but getting a massage by yourself is even better. It’s a great way to have some quiet time and to relax and clear your mind while giving your body the ultimate treatment.
Take a trip to the museum. Go to that art exhibit you’ve been wanting to see! You’ll have all the time in the world to browse through art pieces and enjoy them at your leisure.
The Opera. Get dressed up and indulge in the opulence that operas are known for. And it doesn’t matter that you don’t have a date — simply take this moment to get lost in the music and marvel at the costumes.
Personal training session. Your body does so much work for you all day, every day. So it’s time to give the love back and put work into your own body. Working out with a personal trainer will be a great way to hone in on what your body physically needs.
Go to the bookstore. Now’s your chance to carve out some time in your schedule to wander through the bookstore shelves. Grab a coffee, find some books that interest you, and just sit down and read!
Try a new spa experience. There are so many new and fascinating ways to relax, like floating in Flotation Therapy or relaxing in Salt Caves. Either way, you won’t regret trying a new spa experience.
Take a mini vay-k. You may cringe at the thought of traveling by yourself, but just think of all the possibilities. You can explore a new city at your own pace, see all the cool attractions you’ve been wanting to see, and discover a newfound independence within yourself.
Get a mani-pedi. There’s no better way to treat yourself than with a nice mani-pedi. Not only will your nails look flawless and ‘gram-ready, you’ll also leave the salon feeling refreshed from the new paint job and massage.
Take a class. If you’re focused on a project, you definitely won’t be aware that you’re alone. Take a cooking class or try your hand at ceramics because it’ll only push you out of your comfort zone…and who knows? You might find a new hobby out of it!
Be a tourist. Is there a place in your city that you’ve always wanted to check out, but it always ended up being pushed to another day? Well, take the time to visit that spot or browse through the neighborhood. Our respective cities have so much more to offer than we could ever imagine.
