Single Valentine? Take Over the Pink Landslide! polinaloves/Fotolia

Imagine how much you could achieve in that time, over the course of two weeks!

Don’t get me wrong, Facebook and the likes are perfectly fine most of the time — but on a day they’re likely to make you feel miserable, why waste your time?

Let’s Reconnect to Our Friends and Family

... in real life.

Now that you’ve turned off your social media updates, you can actually meet with the people you truly like. That co-worker you get along with? That old friend from college you haven’t seen since graduation? Your grandmother?

These are people you would want to spend time with. They can make life feel so much fuller and more satisfying!

Who knows? Maybe you’ll find out that your grandma’s stories aren’t that awful. Maybe you’ll realize that you still get along with an old friend. You’ll never know if you don’t try — the worst that could happen is spending an hour with someone you don’t want to repeat the experience with.

Even so, it will be worth it . Not only will you start feeling closer to people you used to spend time with, but your career can benefit from this too. This is not to say that you should take advantage of your old friends, but listening to their perspective can give you great insight.

So, grab your phone, dial their number and drop them a “Hi!” Rekindling old relationships may feel awkward at first, and may not even lead to a great friendship, but you can at least make the effort.

Having friends and family around can do wonders for your well-being — especially when everyone’s wrapped around the whole Valentine’s Day craze.

Let’s Dance Our Hearts Out

... just because.

It doesn’t matter if it’s whilst hanging out with the girls, or if you just put on your favorite PJs and dance to Queen Bey. Dance around like you’ve just received the best news ever. Sweat it off and allow the music to take over your body.

Aside from this being a great exercise — which of course comes with many benefits — it can also make you feel good about your own body and who you are.
