There are days when we just don’t feel like being surrounded by a lot of people. When the presence of a good book and that perfect cup of coffee, would be enough to complete our day. For most people, Valentine’s Day is the perfect reason to go out, mingle and have a good time. While for others, it’s just another social holiday that people put too much emphasis on. If you’re like me and you prefer spending V-Day the chill-est way possible, then read on girlfriend!
Nothing else spells like LOVE than the good ‘ol self-care. Treat yourself to a home spa service or better yet, do it yourself. Light some candles, set up your favorite playlist and take a long, calming bath. Wind down and give yourself the pampering it deserves. Take this opportunity to do that 15 minute hair treatment you’ve always wanted to do. Take a nap. Do whatever. You need to rest, this year has been too exhausting so far, and it’s only February.
Order some take-out and binge on your favorite show
Who says you have to go on dates during Valentine’s Day? Take advantage of the ‘two for one’ promos in restaurants and enjoy the food by yourself while watching your favorite shows on iflix. I would personally recommend, “Emerald City”, a fantastic re-imagining of L. Frank Baum’s ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Sign up now and get a complimentary 1-month trial with full access to its world-class service, features and content. Go to www.iflix.com to register.
Break out the wine you received last Christmas. Having a wine night is a hundred times better than counting the shots you can take before you pass out. It’s a lot more relaxing plus, feels a lot more romantic.
Take a break from social media and read a book you’ve been wanting to read
It’s another way to show your self some love. I know social media nowadays can be so stressful and hazardous for our mental health. Give yourself a break, even just for the day and start reading that book you promised yourself you would read during Christmas break.
Finally checkout that coffee shop you’ve passed by dozens of times on your way home
Call your friends or your significant other and check out that secluded coffee shop you’ve been wanting to visit but you never had the time to. Order your favorite coffee, or try a new one and read your book or maybe you could do it the old school way and just catch-up with your friends, family or significant other. I finally had the time to try the Coffee Grounds just this month and I swear, I’ve been coming back ever since! If you guys want to check it out, here’s the address: Golden Lion Dormitel, Roxas Extension, Barangay 31, Poblacion District, Davao City, Philippines
Just remember, there’s no reason to go all out during Valentine’s Day. It’s just another day, we just like to think that it’s different. *wink*
