Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching. You may have a set plan of what you want to do, whether it is with your boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband/whatever or have fun things planned with your friends or just want to do something by yourself. If you’re not sure what you want to do yet, here is a list of things you can do solo, with a friend or with a romantic date! There are so many options to spend this day of love.
Treat yourself to your favorite dinner. Whether you go out on a date to your favorite restaurant, order takeout or cook your favorite meal, forget about calories for just one day. Make or order your favorite comfort foods to enjoy. Just be sure to savor them and not get over-full!
Go to a yoga, Pilates or other workout class. If you have a date, call around to your local yoga studios to find out about any special couples yoga classes. Working out is a great way to enjoy yourself, whether you want to hang out with someone or just spend the time on bettering yourself.
Do something unique and fun! Some great ideas are going to a painting studio, doing something daring like skydiving or a hot air balloon ride, going to a concert of a band you’ve never seen live before and much more. Try something that you’ve always wanted to do but had an excuse not to.
If you’re single and not too happy with the opposite sex, get together with your friends and have an “Anti-Valentine’s Day” party. Throw darts at cupids, make fun drinks and have delicious appetizers, dish about your latest romantic conquests and watch hilarious comedies. Chances are you’ll be cracking up by the end of the night and forget all about the lovey-dovey parts of Valentine’s Day.
If you’re completely in love, go all in. Make or buy your significant other something that shows them how much you care and plan a date based on your mutual interests. For example, if you both love the cold weather, go ice skating where you can spin around and holds hands then warm up together after with hot cocoa.
However you spend Valentine’s Day, put on a positive attitude and have some fun!
