Valentine's Day, also known as the Day of Love, is an opportunity to express our love and affection for those close to your heart, especially romantic partners. This year, I want to encourage us all to give a special gift and quality bonding time to the person closest to us, but whom we forget to love most often - ourselves.

On the 14th of February, we spend the day making everyone else feel special, and though that is important, the holiday is a celebration of love and affection in all its forms and it is also essential for us to take some time to make ourselves feel loved.

 Let's celebrate Me-day this V-day by implementing all of these splendid self-love activities:

 Relax and rejuvenate

Start with taking some time for yourself and scheduling an activity that you enjoy. Treat yourself to a spa day or book a massage, facial, or any relaxing treatment. A spa day can help you recharge and increase your energy levels, making it easier to spread the love to those around you.

 Indulge in your favorite foods

With or without a romantic partner, create your ideal V-day date night by cooking yourself a special meal or ordering in from that restaurant you love. Nothing says love and Valentine's like a beautifully prepared dinner meal.

 Spoil yourself with a gift

The key to a thoughtful gift is to know the recipient well enough to choose something they will appreciate and adore, and who knows yourself and what you'll love better than you? So get yourself the perfect gift - with love, from you... to you!

 Do something you enjoy

Take 30 minutes out of your day & block it out for an activity that make you smile. Spend time on a hobby, like painting, drawing, or writing, or even try something you've never done before but had on your list for ages - surprise yourself with an "I've never done that before"- activity!

 Remember that self-love is one of the most important kinds of love. It demands treating ourselves with kindness, compassion, and respect, and recognizing our worth and value. By successfully doing so you learn how to love those around you and so be the best Valentine to the person you love.

Spoiling yourself on Valentine's Day is a great way to show yourself love and appreciation. This V-day let's #LoveOurselvesFirst because by filling your own cup, you will be better equipped to do so for your loved ones around you.
