Focus on dating yourself for once

6 months ago
By Asya Gadzheva

It is high time you made having a good time a healthy habit rather than an obligation. It is all about you. What you like. What you want to do. How you want to do it.

I know February is the month where everyone is talking about love, but don’t you worry about that.
Finding yourself alone at this time of year can be pretty tough to handle when considering the amount of social pressure imposed.

However, Valentine’s Day is not a ‘couples exclusive’ event. It has never been. In fact, you might as well consider spending it on your own this year. On purpose. So, lose the napkins and make this day your own. It is high time you went on a date with yourself. Yes, seriously.

Before that, however, you must change your attitude towards the whole concept of Valentine’s Day. Think of it as a freeing exercise that will develop your sense of confidence. Spending a peaceful day in the quiet presence of your own mind can put you back on the right track and help you explore your dreams, thoughts and desires.

Focus on the positives in your life. Make it an occasion for indulging, treating and pleasing yourself: it will be, after all, a date for you by you.

Still wondering who will get the last bite of that sinfully delicious chocolate soufflé? Well, you, of course. Because you deserve it. And there really is not that much required to secure an enjoyable time.

Valentine’s Day is a universal celebration of love and care and you are more than worthy to be celebrated.
