Covai Post Network



We know. We feel you. You have deactivated Facebook for a day and not mindlessly tapping through Instagram feed like routine. You don’t want to see couples posting lovey-dovey pictures celebrating milestones and sharing statuses that send a thousand volt current of jealousy through your spine. Whether you are single by choice or currently on a break from your current relationship, don’t worry. We have got your back. Here, we bring some life-saving ideas that are going to make your day million times better and memorable and are just the perfect antidote for all the mush and love overflowing on this day!

Flowers: This big day is around the corner, and it is the perfect time to book some flowers in bangalore for you! Why you ask? Because there is no love better and important than self-love! If a big bunch of rose seems to be a bit too much, go with green plants and indoor planters to pep up your surroundings and pamper yourself a lot. Besides, if anyone asks, you can always tell them to look for this research by American Society for Horticulture Science, which proves that having fresh flowers around can ease anxiety, physical pain and stress levels in humans. Top up the floral arrangement with chocolates, dry fruits and sweets of your choice to make this day a sweeter! Singledom rocks, don’t you think?

Books and Movies: Who told you that you need a date to enjoy a movie?

Osho says, “If you can’t enjoy your company or can’t find happiness in yourself, nobody else will.”

So, let us be at peace with ourselves. Let us enjoy our own. This Valentine’s Day 2020, don’t stream it. Take that little black dress out of the closet, doll up and see yourself out!
Men, you need to clean up, trim or shave your stubble, get ready in the best attire! You need to be impressed with yourself so that you can impress others.

And if you don’t feel like going out, it is alright. The idea is to be comfortable and be at peace with you. If you have been out all day, grab your favourite takeaway and read that book you have been longing to read and couldn’t seem to find time for. Make this day the perfect time to spend a little time with your favourite person, YOU!

Detoxify: Use this day to detoxify yourself, inside and outside. While you sip matcha, ponder over toxic people and relationship you have in life. Weed them out and give your mind the much-needed relief. Let this be the day when you stop bending over for people who don’t deserve you at all. Be it the professional or personal sphere of life, detoxify, declutter and decide never to let any toxic person or relationship get the better of you!

It is time to be selfish: When was the last time you did something for yourself? Eating last, saving the best things for your family, leaving your favourite TV show or movie to toil in the kitchen or for a work presentation- stop putting yourself in the last. Make yourself a priority because if you don’t take good care of yourself, you won’t be able to do it for your loved ones for long. So, start taking those vitamins, renew that gym subscription and put that Yoga mat to good use!

The second step to be selfish is to accept what you are. Whether you are curvy, skinny, peach-shaped or apple-shaped – ditch these stereotypes. It is important to be healthy-physically, emotionally and spiritually, and nothing else counts. Don’t let somebody else’s definition of beauty and sexy define you. Just be yourself and love yourself.

Be happy: You know what; it is easier said than done. Happiness is a constant effort. It is an option that you should vow to practice and abide by, starting this Valentine’s Day! In any condition, in any situation, strive to seek peace within yourself and be happy to go with the flow. Let the Universe guide you and be with you as you make it happen! It is not easy when you have toxicity and negativity around you but one has to try for well-being and positive mental health.

So, all you single people out there! Make this day about loving yourself! From this day onwards, make every day about you first because you need to fall in love with you all over again! Prioritise your needs, problems and issues that are plaguing you and slowly taking control of your life. And the only way to do is to give yourself the importance you so keenly deserve. Start with flowers or flower tree in your society and progress gradually to more complex and conscious steps to feel better.
