We know that being single on Valentine’s Day is not the end of the world. And some of us don’t mind being free and independent on that day. Whether you are looking for something fun to do at home or a simple way to spend the night by yourself, there are plenty of options for you to choose from.
Not sure what to do? Here are ten fun things to do alone at home when you’re single AF on Valentine’s Day for some self love:
Treat Your Sweet Tooth
What is Valentine’s Day known for? Chocolates! Whether it’s brownies, cheesecakes, or lava cakes, we think you deserve a sweet treat. Give in to your indulgences after a long day of work, or even just once on your dedicated cheat day. Just be careful and pay attention to all the grams of sugar you are consuming.
Learn A New Skill
There’s something out there that you’ve been dying to try out, whether that’s cooking, knitting, or learning a new language. So, take the night to learn something new! Grab this opportunity to learn some dishes and desserts from all around the world. Learning a foreign language is also an investment you can make for yourself! Learn Mandarin, Spanish, Korean, and a whole lot more online by Enderun Colleges.
Sweat It Out
Get your heart racing even when you’re single, thanks to a little sweat session! Go for a run, sign up for an online workout class, or follow your favorite YouTube channel’s workout routines. After enjoying the endorphins from the exercise, treat yourself to a healthy snack box.
Pamper Yourself At Home
Hydrating face mask? Check. Scented candles? Check! You’re halfway to an at-home spa night that feels like the real thing. Relax into a cushioned back pillow. Read a new novel. Give yourself some self-love. Do what makes you happy.
Binge Your Favorite Series
There isn’t anything better than changing into your comfy pajamas and curling up on the couch with your favorite series. No matter what genre you’re into, there’s more than one show that you want to watch all day long.
Order Your Favorite Meal
Buy your favorite meal, wine, or chocolate, and keep it all to yourself. For instance, have your own KBBQ party, and you won’t have to give up a single piece of your beloved meat and kimchi. Enjoy the fact that it’s all for you!
Start A Journal
The point of writing a journal is to let your guard down and express yourself in a carefree and honest way. If a blank page feels intimidating, don’t worry! The first rule of journal writing is that there’s no wrong way to do it.
Make A Playlist Of Your Favorite Songs
Skip the ballads and fill them with uplifting music from your favorite artists. It’s no wonder that creating your playlist could be a great way to give yourself a mood boost whenever you need it. Turn your music up and groove your way to happiness!
Spend Quality Time With Your Pet
If you have a dog, a cat, or any other pet, spend the day with them. Since you can’t take them out yet in the park, shower them with toys and treats at home. However, if you don’t have a pet and have been interested in getting one, visit the PAWS official page to see the animals in need of a new home.
Catch Up On Your Zzz
If every other activity on the list looks ‘too much’, then here’s one we know for a fact that will appeal to you—a good sleep! Why not just stay in bed past your alarm and take a long nap this Valentine’s Day? You deserve it.
Sure, Valentine’s Day shouldn’t matter if you’re single— but it’s the perfect excuse to celebrate you. Cheers!
