10 valentines day self love activities to make you feel happy
Make yourself breakfast in bed
Receiving breakfast in bed is one of the all-time most romantic things that someone can do for you, but why wait until Valentine’s day? Want to treat yourself even more? Then make your favorite breakfast and take it to your room. Put on your favorite pajamas, take a nice hot bath or shower, read your favorite magazine, and get ready for the day ahead of you.
Watch your favorite romantic movie
Everyone enjoys watching their favorite romantic movie during the lead-up to Valentine’s day. Why not watch it on Valentine’s day? It will remind you that even though you may not have a significant other, there is always a special someone just for you.
Give yourself a nice bubble bath
You deserve to be pampered every now and then! Take an hour or two out of your day and soak in some bubbles, light some candles, put on soothing music, and relax. If you want to take it one step further, put on some really nice clothes right after your bath. You deserve a treat every now and then!
Write a love letter to yourself
This is a great way to focus on all of your positive qualities and remind yourself that you’re wonderful. It’s also a great way to start an inner dialogue about how you feel. It might sound strange at first, but try it out!
Write down 10 things you love about yourself in that letter. List off all of your positive qualities in your letter, and when you need to give yourself a confidence boost, pull out the list!
Buy yourself flowers
Flowers are one of the most popular gifts given on Valentine’s day. Why not give them to yourself instead? Go out into nature, look for your favorite flowers cut them, and put them in a nice vase. If you can’t find flowers outdoors you can always buy yourself a nice bouquet.
Dance to sensual music
This is one of my personal favorites. Put on your favorite music, preferably something with a good beat that makes you feel sexy and sensual. Dance around in front of the mirror and check yourself out! Notice how beautiful you look and feel when you’re dancing and smiling and having fun.
Cuddle with yourself
If you’re single, this is a great way to practice self-care when you aren’t receiving it from someone else. Cuddling is one of the best feelings in the world because it makes you feel safe and warm! If cuddling with another person isn’t an option for you, grab your favorite blanket, a book, and a cup of hot tea or cocoa and cuddle up on the couch with yourself!
Take yourself on a date – go out to eat, see a movie, or take a walk in the park
This isn’t just for couples! If you’re single, it can be difficult to not feel lonely when everyone around you is in a relationship. But even though you don’t have someone else with you, that doesn’t mean that your date can’t be epic! Dress up and take yourself out to eat somewhere nice or catch the new movie release. This is a great valentines day self-love activity.
Have a candlelight dinner and cook your favorite meal
I think this is one of the best ways to practice self-love. It’s very simple, but you can really enjoy it as much as a candlelight dinner with someone else if you take your time and do it right. Try making something that you love, it can be anything.
Decorate your dining table with flowers and light some candles. Enjoy the time spent with yourself.
Spend time with friends and family who make you feel good about yourself
This is similar to the “self-love date” because you’re still going out alone, but instead of taking yourself somewhere, you’re hanging out with people who make you feel good! If it’s a family member, play a game and spend time bonding. If it’s a friend, go grab a coffee and chat about life and love (or whatever you want!).
Other Valentines Day Self Love Activities
Get a massage
If you’re feeling tense, a massage is a perfect way to let all of that negative energy go. You can do it at home or make an appointment at a spa or salon. After your massage, spend some time looking through your list again and remind yourself why you’re wonderful!
Make a colorful collage of all your favorite photos.
Put your best picture at the center surrounded by other pictures that represent positive parts of your life. If you don’t have many pictures of yourself, find some online or in magazines and print them out to look over.
Go to the mall
Go to the mall, dress yourself up in comfortable clothes, and see how many compliments you can get! Even if no one around you notices, this is great practice for recognizing all of your positive qualities.
Buy yourself a present
It is important to splurge some money on yourself at times. Take this valentines day as an opportunity to buy a small gift for yourself. Here are some valentines day gift ideas.
