Valentine’s Day. Time for us to think of our loved ones and send along a card, candy or flowers to say “I love you.” Some people say it’s just a day drummed up by marketing executives as a way to sell candy and flowers. And frankly, that may be. But taking the time from our busy work-a-day lives to stop and appreciate those we love is something we can get behind.
The fact is that you don’t even need to have a significant other to enjoy this holiday. Why not take the day to love yourself? We all could use a little more happiness and joy in our lives so why not do it on Valentine’s Day?
Let us make a few suggestions on how to celebrate love on Valentine’s Day.
- Take the day off, it’s on a Wednesday this year, so having a day to relax mid-week sounds fun to me. Just make sure you don’t spend the day on social media or doing chores. Plan a spa day, a hike in a park, a lovely lunch with a friend, family member or partner. Go to the movies. You get the idea.
- Call someone you haven’t talked to in a while and wish them a happy Valentine’s Day. In this age of always-on, actually talking to someone on the phone or via Skype can really make someone’s day.
- Send someone you know is a little blue a little Valentine’s gift. The unexpected tribute is guaranteed to make them smile.
- Order yourself something indulgent and delicious that you can enjoy in a quiet moment. I love to buy a box of candy and eat it one piece at a time. I put the box in the freezer and take one out when I want a special treat or reward.
