Take the time to write a beautiful love letter to yourself, reminding yourself why you’re amazing and loved. Write it on paper or on the Notes app on your phone.
Writing a love letter to yourself, shifts your mindset from one of self-pity & negativity to positivity pretty quickly. Read it throughout the day and feel your mood brighten up.
Spray some scent into it and you have old school romance right at your doorstep. Read it over and over again during the day and enjoy the special feelings it evokes.
2) Pamper Yourself
Take the time to pamper yourself! Go to the spa get a massage or a mani/pedi. Or you can even have a pamper me day at home with a nice bath, some candles & wine! Put yourself back on your priority list.
3) Get Out Of The House & Go Out With Friends
Get together with your friends for brunch or a night out!
Not the bitter type of friends who are going to spend the entire time whining about their exes! Get together with your happy friends…you don’t want to be around people who are only going to bring your energy level down.
Go out with girls who are fun and up for anything, they’ll make Valentine’s Day unforgettable!
