10 Covid-Safe Things You Can Do Alone on Valentine's Day.

10 Covid-Safe Things You Can Do Alone On V Day!

Open that champagne, because self- love is worth celebrating for! 

Being single on Valentine’s Day isn’t a big deal, and we all know it. But, seeing couples walking hand-in-hand by your window or being tormented with aisles of teddy bears and Valentine’s Day chocolate when you’re just trying to run an errand your mom requested you, is hard enough not to feel sad, lonely, or even irritated.

Unbeknownst to me, you’re also that person on social media who regularly shares bitter posts or those that say, “sana all.” In spite of the fact that Valentine’s Day may seem like a day for lovers only, there are numerous reasons why you should spend it alone. To avoid indulging in a pint of ice cream and stalking your ex online on Valentine’s Day, make a plan for the day ahead of time.

Take a look at these COVID-safe activities that will help you celebrate your fabulous self this Valentine’s Day!

Start your day with a workout.  

  • Working out, as we all know, releases feel-good hormones that elevate our soul and prolong our patience throughout the day, particularly on the day for couples. So, turn on a fitness video and get your workout in. Feel better with the help of those happy endorphins!

Tidy up your space.

  • I don’t know about you, but I firmly believe that one way of letting the toxic and negative emotions leave, is to start cleaning your space and removing all the unnecessary things that pile up in your area.Turn on some music, a podcast, or an audiobook and get a head start on spring cleaning. Go ahead and make your house a happy home.

Read a good book.

  • What’s the big deal if your love life didn’t go the way you had hoped? Why not rekindle your kilig feelings by reading that great book on your shelf that keeps winking at you? Relax and let yourself be carried away by a captivating tale. Allow yourself to be swept away by the passion of a love story, or challenge yourself with the suspense and intrigue of a mystery or thriller. You won’t even notice how quickly the time goes by.

Send gifts or bouquets to your loved ones.

  • As much as we wanted to receive gifts and bouquets for valentines, that isn’t possible just yet. So, instead of waiting for someone to give us gifts, let us just reverse the situation and send a gift and a bouquet to our loved ones.Buy a bunch of supermarket blooms and mix and match them to create unique bouquets for your parents, BFFs or siblings. Who knows, maybe next year, you’ll have someone who’ll assist you in sending gifts.

Bake a sweet treat and indulge in it.

  • Since your vibe and social media posts have gotten so bitter, let’s bake a sweet treat and taste the fact that singleness is actually a great blessing. Enjoy the sweetness of your freshly baked cookies and other delicacies while relishing the absence of someone who will eventually cause you pain. Baking is a great distraction at any time because of all the precise measuring and mixing. Even better, you get to eat the fruits of your labor afterward. If you can’t eat it all, give some to a friend.

Water your plants.

  • It has been scientifically proven that spending time in nature is therapeutic. You don’t even have to become a plantita to do this; you can simply sing to your mother’s plants while you water them. Getting some fresh air and moving your body can both help you relax and find your center.

Social Media Detox for a day.

  • You’re looking for the silver lining in this difficult situation, aren’t you? In addition, we all know that social media has the power to make even the most self-confident people compare themselves to others and wonder if everyone else has it better than them. So take a break from social media on February 14th, and you’ll thank me later. Stop using social media for a few days if you’re fed up with seeing lovey dovey messages and photos.

Hold a Zoom Singles Night Out.

  • I’m pretty sure you’re not the only single person in your group of friends. Gather your single friends and plan a virtual night out for all of you. Increase the volume of the music and get down with your bad self. Relax and enjoy the music with your friends, and forget about the fact that we should be having a romantic slow dance if only we had a lover! Oops, it looks like I’m the one who’s sending out negative vibes here.

Celebrate Friendship.

  •  If you are unable to host a zoom singles night out, this may be a more suitable alternative. On Valentine’s Day, gather your friends for a Zoom happy hour, a casual dinner, a movie night, or a combination of the above activities. Being surrounded by loved ones, even from a distance, will serve to remind you of how much you are cherished.

Cast a Self Love Spell through a skin care routine.

  • Close your eyes and imagine the version of yourself that makes you feel the most handsome, beautiful, vibrant — whatever you want to feel. Consider this self clasping your hands together and a glow emanating from the space between them. Then, in your vision, open your hands and notice how the glow surrounds a simple pattern of circles and lines. This symbol is a representation of your ideal self. Open your eyes and scribble the symbol you imagined on a sticker. Attach the sticker to a bottle of moisturizer, sunscreen, or another product, and imagine the glow you imagined permeating its contents. Your product is now imbued with the essence of whatever makes you feel powerful and appealing.

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love

Valentine’s Day is a day to celebrate love with your significant other, but love isn’t always about them. This is the time to enjoy yourself and do whatever makes you happy! Give yourself some leniency. Remind yourself that you are lovable and deserving of affection.
