Furthermore, dancing has been shown to reduce anxiety, and can even alleviate post-traumatic stress disorder.

This is not just fooling around. This is pure therapy — for the body and for the soul!

Put on some funky high heels and the most comfortable pants you have, and dance your way through the day. At the very least, it will put a smile on your face!

Let’s Pamper Ourselves

... and feel absolutely no guilt at all.

Life’s too short not to allow yourself some extra chocolate chips in your pancakes. And it’s also too short not to buy that pair of expensive shoes you’ve been staring at for months.

Money comes and goes, people come and go — and even passions come and go. But the sweet moments when you treat yourself to something you really love will stay forever. So click on that “buy” button, cuddle under your blankets with that Ravenous Romance novel, order that pizza, and binge-watch a series of Friends.

This is a day to love yourself and your life, with everything in it.

Let’s Share Some Good Thoughts

... because you don’t have to be in a relationship to show someone you care and to tell them how amazing they are. In fact, you can share some love with someone you don’t even know (and no, I am not talking random hookups).

Just write your nicest thoughts on a piece of paper and send it to a random person — or, if this seems too awkward to you, give it to a friend or relative. Making others happy is always a good way to make yourself feel great as well!

In the end, let’s take Valentine’s Day as it is — just another day in the calendar. Being single is not even by far the worst thing on Earth. In fact, it can come with its own series of benefits.

What am I going to do this Valentine’s Day? I’m going to have fun. Because it’s going to fall on a Sunday and I want to recharge my batteries for the new week. I’m going to spend time with people I love (and my cat) and I’m going to be happy.

Because I don’t care about putting a ring on it.
