If you’re one of the lucky ones who has a bath tub in your apartment, Valentine’s Day is a good day to set up a warm, nourishing soak for yourself. Absolutely no social media bingeing during the bath itself as this defeats the purpose (but maybe some Netflix binging later), and just taking the time to reflect deeply on your life. On the world. On who you are and who you want to be and how you want to show up in life. Or just breathe and remind yourself all the good things you do without even realizing it.
It doesn’t even have to be grand gestures. It could be the doors you hold open, the multitudinous “thank you’s” that effortlessly pour out of you, the generous smiles, the inward prayer you say every time you see someone in a worse circumstance than you. Pay attention to these beautiful things about you that have nothing to do with who you are on paper, but more about who you are at a soul level. Crush on yourself a little bit, you deserve the self-romance.
