4 Reasons Why You Should Celebrate Valentine’s Day This Year
The month of love is here. Cupid’s day may be celebrated a little differently this year but you can still make Valentine’s Day special. While it’s easy for us to come up with an excuse to skip it this year (Pssst Covid-19), here’s 5 reasons why we should still enjoy it no matter what your relationship status is:
1. You deserve love - even if it’s from yourself.
Whether you’re single or in a relationship, a day that emphasises love is a reminder that you matter. It doesn’t always have to take a significant other to show you that you are loved but little activities you do for yourself can be just as important.
2. Find out what love means to you at this moment in time
Our views of love and relationships change as we age and experience life. We’re at an unusual moment in time and without distractions of outside life, our mind and heart has had time to heal. If you’re in a relationship, have you become aware of what you value or want in a relationship? If you’re single, has what you expect and what you need changed? Writing a letter to yourself that documents your thoughts on love and relationships at the age you are now is an interesting way to look back on later and how your views have changed.
3. Treat yourself ...because why not?
If there’s ever a time you wanted to do something special for yourself, it’s now! Whether it’s food you’ve always wanted to try, a much needed self care day or finally getting round to order that thing on your wishlist. Making time to do something that’ll make you feel better or feel loved will remind you that you deserve love no matter if you’re in a relationship or not. Your first love is yourself!
4. It’s your excuse to play cupid for a single friend
If you’re already in a relationship and want to help someone else find love, this is your time to play cupid. Play matchmaker for your single friends or siblings and see if you can pick them a better date than they could for themselves. Wingman is a great way to get started and help those you love in their dating journey, with you as their wingman every step of the way.
Needless to say, this Valentine’s Day will be one for the ages!
