Eugh is it that time of the year again? It seems Valentine’s Day is either really important to some or it’s just another day on the calendar to others. No matter where you sit on this scale, here are our top tips to bring some love and fun into your Valentine’s day this year:
Celebrate yourself! Give yourself a treat, go get a massage, curl up with a book and a tea or go to see a film at the cinema. Just focus on loving yourself and taking some time of the day to make it all about you!
GET THE KIDS ONBOARD
Plan something special to treat the kids, you could put chocolates on the end of their bed or make heart pancakes for breakfast or take them for an ice-cream after school. Get the kids on board with treating you on Valentine’s Day, maybe it’s an opportunity for them to make you breakfast in bed!
Join forces with your support network! Plan a night out with your friends. Have a bit of fun and just enjoy those around you that you love and that love you. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about romance, it can just be about celebrating the friends that we love featuring a glass or two of red and a nice dinner!
BE YOUR OWN VALENTINE!
This isn’t necessarily going to be an easy day but remember to be kind to yourself! If you are newly separated, it might be difficult to adjust, but it is important to find the positives and take the opportunity to make new traditions for yourself.
