Love is a beautiful experience, and it doesn’t have to be limited to romantic love. If your focus right now is you, then you should make a point to celebrate yourself. Valentine’s Day gets plenty of fanfare in February, but did you know that there’s a day solely dedicated to singles in November? That’s right — November 11 is officially Singles Day!
Self care should be implemented every day, but this dedicated holiday is a great opportunity to nurture your mind, body and soul. For some self-love inspiration, here are our favorite Singles Day celebration ideas.
Indulging in Self-Appreciation by Doing Your Favorite Things
Today’s all about you, so spend time enjoying your favorite activities. Self-care practices look different for everyone. Going to the movies, heading on a hiking adventure, checking out the farmers market — the possibilities are endless. If you love spending time at home, treat yourself to a low-key day reading, gardening or watching comfort shows.
Throwing a Self-Love Celebration
Just as Valentine’s Day calls for roses and chocolates, Singles Day deserves celebration, too. Throw a fun party with fellow single friends or embark on a solo date at a fancy restaurant. You can even stay in and celebrate yourself by popping the champagne and cutting the cake!
