Seriously, who says you need a boyfriend to have a blast on Valentine’s Day? All you need is me, myself, and I!

Whether you’re bummed about celebrating the holiday of love on your own this year, or super stoked about singledom on V-Day, you deserve to treat yo’self to something special!

Even if you don’t have a “conventional” date this year, you can still celebrate love! After all, if there’s one person that will truly love you and never let you down, it’s you! So why not learn how to date yourself and enjoy your own company?

Take It to The Next Level

Spending quality time with yourself, and practicing things that make you feel good, is an amazing mental and emotional health practice. We want you to take it to the next level this year, so we’ve rounded up a list of five “date yourself” ideas.

So, here’s an agenda for loving and treating yourself exactly the way you deserve this February 14.

Digital Detox

Stow away your phone and computer. It’s important to take some time away from social media. Spending too much time scrolling through social media can increase stress levels, anxiety, and depression (especially on the most romantic day of the year). We are constantly comparing ourselves though social media, developing FOMO (fear of missing out) because our lives just don’t seem as happy or as romantic as everyone else’s.

Just remember that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Social media is a tiny sliver of reality. Take the plunge and take a social media detox. It’s time to prioritize a little “me time” and indulge in other activities you enjoy. Socialize with others, engage in your favorite hobbies, and be productive. You’ll thank yourself.

Plan A Weekend Escape

Who knew celebrating singledom on V-DAY could be so much fun? Avoid your exes AND treat yourself to a much-needed vacation by planning a weekend getaway. We know, we know: COVID is still a thing. “Road trip it” or spend the day planning a weekend escape to get away as soon as the pandemic dies down. Solo travel is a super fun way to get to know yourself better while embarking on new adventures!

It’s an incredibly enriching experience that builds confidence and allows you to trust yourself, find yourself, and most importantly—love yourself.

Fun in the Tub

Who doesn’t love bubble baths? Throw your favorite bath bomb in the tub and allow yourself to soak the stress away with a glass of champagne. Baths stimulate lots of physical benefits like balancing your hormones, relaxing your muscles, joints, and bones, and even improving heart health.
