Valentine’s Day is not just for lovers, rather it is the day of love. Here are six ways to have a fantabulous Valentine’s Day even when you’re single!

Gift someone your time

We all know the importance of being heard when weary and tired. This is the perfect time to lend a hand or willing ear to someone that needs it. When you help others, you instantly get gifted with the feel-good factor.

Does someone need your expert advice?

Is your acquaintance moving home and could do with some help?

Who knows, you might earn yourself a great friend in that acquaintance or your advice might take you places professionally!

Do yourself a favor by doing someone a good turn.

Go shopping

Shopping is therapeutic when you do not carry a to-do list in your bag. Otherwise, it is as good as a mundane chore. If you find yourself getting jittery, just go shopping. You do not have to buy a lot to feel good. You may buy that one item you have been eyeing since long. Always remember to keep away such purchases for special days.

Of course, there is no special day to love and feel good. But a little passionate shopping cannot do any harm.

Visit your family or friends

Have you been putting off meeting family and friends due to time constraints? Well, here is your chance to make amends. Wake up, dress well and go visiting family and friends. Share memories and come back feeling warm and happy.

Go to a spa

Yes, you read that right. Whoever told you that spa days are exclusively meant for dates is totally misled. You can always go to a spa and get a total makeover done. Looking good has no equal when it comes to building confidence. So, book that appointment immediately. Who knows how your evening might turn out to be?

Do something for the underprivileged

Now, this option is always sidelined for birthdays, anniversaries and memorial days. Why not Valentine’s Day? Go to an old age home or a blind school and spend some time there assisting them in activities. If you can, make some donation as well. This gesture is noble and the need of the day as well.

If nothing else works for you, you have one last thing that is always available to you.

Clean your space and rest

Do you find this funny? It is anything but that. If your space needs a good spring clean, get right down to it. This is just the day for it. When you are done with it and your space looks inviting, pamper yourself with tea and snacks.

Who knows, you might have some unexpected guests that evening?

Now that you have many options to choose from, c’mon smile and get going.
