Spend the evening with friends. If you have single friends who don’t have a date this upcoming holiday, plan to meet them out for dinner or cook a special meal for them at your house. Fun and fellowship will surely be the theme of your day when it’s spent with friends who may be dealing with the same mental health concerns as you. No one has to feel alone on Valentine’s Day. Spend it together with those who matter and you’ll feel happy and content.
Visit family. If you don’t have a lot of time to spend with your parents, grandparents, or siblings, take time to do so this Valentine’s Day. Chances are, your grandparents aren’t able to get out and enjoy this day. Why not spend time with them and make them feel happy and loved? It will do you some good, as well. Take them a box of chocolates, a stuffed animal, and take out.
Volunteer your time. If you have no plans for the upcoming holiday, consider volunteering at a soup kitchen or other organization that needs your help. This will make you feel useful, appreciative of what you have and give you something to keep your mind off of feeling lonely and sad.
Don’t worry about it. After all, Valentine’s Day is just a traditional holiday that many people choose to celebrate. It is not required or essential. Why not ignore the holiday, altogether? If it makes you feel better, go on about your day as if it’s just a normal day. Don’t worry about coworkers who may receive balloons or flowers, don’t think of all the commercial hype going on and see how you feel. You may find that ignoring holiday all together is the best way to combat feelings of loneliness and depression.
Buy yourself flowers. This is a small, yet simple way to brighten your overall mood on Valentine’s Day. You can visit a fresh flower market after work or have them sent from a florist to your office. Either way, you’ll be happy to see the beautiful, colorful flowers.
Ready to tackle Valentine's Day as a single person now? We hope these tips help you do that! Don't be afraid to gift yourself, do something good for someone else, or spend quality time with friends and family. It'll be a great way to commemorate this holiday!
