Valentine’s Day is known as the day of love, but that doesn’t mean it only has to be the romantic kind. Self-love is just as important as the love we show our family and friends and has actually been proven to strengthen our relationships. So, this year, redheads, whether it’s enjoying your favorite dessert or booking a spa treatment, be sure to treat yourself – you deserve it!
1. Go to your favorite yoga or workout class
Whether you prefer the mindful breathwork and deep stretching of yoga or a heart-pumping spin class, take the time to connect with and move your body this Valentine’s Day. The endorphins will lift your mood and you’ll feel confident knowing you’ve done something positive for your physical and mental health.
2. Treat yourself to something delicious
Go out to your favorite spot or make a recipe at home, the sky is the limit here. And don’t think this is limited to breakfast, lunch, or dinner — maybe for you, this means a latte and a yummy pastry from your local café, a pretty smoothie with red and pink fruits, or a few pieces of chocolate. Go ahead and whip up your famous recipe if you’re feeling ambitious, but whatever treat you choose, just take the time to savor and enjoy it.
3. Enjoy a spa treatment (at home or by a professional)
Pop into your favorite salon for a mani + pedi, book a professional massage or whip up an at-home facemask and lip scrub using the ingredients in your own kitchen (see how here). Whatever your budget or time limit, there is a way to pamper yourself!
4. Try something new
If there’s a hobby you’ve been meaning to take up, a place you’ve wanted to visit, or restaurant you’ve been eyeing, now is the time to do it! So, sign up for the class or book the ticket you’ve been wanting to – life is too short not to live a life you love!
5. Indulge in a shopping “spree”
Pick a local boutique, artisan, or a charitable company and purchase yourself or someone else a little something. Maybe even a subscription to the H2BAR Box (wink, wink). Everyone will feel the love; you or someone you care about will enjoy the new treat, all while supporting a small business or worthy cause!
Rock it like a Redhead!
