Let’s say this Valentine’s Day isn’t all chocolate and roses when it comes to your love life. If this is you, this Valentine’s Day may look a little more like SAD (Single Awareness Day), but that doesn’t mean it has to be gloomy!

Celebrate this holiday by paying yourself some extra attention! They say one of the best ways to draw that special someone into your life is to learn how to love yourself first. Can’t go wrong there. When you are taking care of yourself, you look your best!

So, here are five ways to love yourself in the solidarity of your own company.

Take a Nice, Long Candlelit Bath

Treat yourself this holiday by indulging in a soak! Wash away the cares of the day, and revive your spirit with a hot bath and a bath oil or soak!

Indulge your senses with soothing Lavender or grounding Eucalyptus, and forget about your cares for the night. Flip on your favorite tunes, close your eyes, and just be…for a while. Tomorrow will come, but at least for this Valentine’s Day, kick back with a good soak, relax and let live.

Host Yourself a Fancy Candlelit Dinner

Are we overdoing it on the candles thing? Of course, not. Candlelit dinners are not reserved for couples! Where does the rulebook say that?—Oh, it doesn’t.

Plus, even though you may be spending the evening alone, doesn't mean you have to eat gruel. Self-love doesn't take a backseat just because a person is single. Spoil yourself with your favorite dish this holiday, heck, cook yourself a whole pot roast if you like. You are worth it!

Make it even better by adding to the festive ambiance with a couple scented candles—or they don't have to be scented, but let's be honest. What candle worth investing in isn't scented? Exactly.

Give Your Manicure a Makeover

If there's one thing that can speak volumes about how you care for yourself, it's your fingernails. Think about it. The cleaner and well put together someone's nails are, not only does it add millions to the net-worth image of their hands, but you also consider them to be a person that spends time on themselves. Right?

Make that person with the enviable manicure YOU this season, and devote some TLC to those digits at the ends of your arms.

Deep Cleanse Your Face with a Facemask

If you're spending an evening to yourself, you better be sure to address everything from head to toe, including spending time cleaning that window to your soul.

Throughout the day, your skin is exposed to tons of free radicals that cause damage to the skin. Take time to detox your facial canvas and keep it well hydrated during this winter season.

Indulge In Your Chocolate Cravings

What is Valentine's Day without chocolate? You don't have to wait for someone to show up on your doorstep with a heart-shaped box of chocolates to give you permission to eat the delicious goodness. That's ridiculous. Regardless of who you are or aren't spending the day with, if you don't anything else, remember to eat some chocolate!

Have fun with yourself this Valentine's Day and learn to enjoy your own company! Discover what a neat person you actually are to be around! The more you enjoy spending time with yourself, the more someone else will enjoy spending time with you!
