The History Of Single's Awareness Day
Many celebrate 14 February as the day of love by sharing special moments with their partner, which can be a cruel and uncalled for reminder for those who are single. But now there is a special event for the singles, too. 15 February is Single's Awareness Day, a day to embrace being single.
Single's Awareness Day serves as an alternative to Valentine's Day for those who are single. It is a day that celebrates love in all forms, recognising the love between friends, family, your furbabies and, more importantly, it is a day to celebrate self love.
What To Do On This Special Day
Spoil Yourself With Some Flowers At The Office
Many people will probably receive flowers from their partners, crushes or even secret admirers, but who ever said you can't do the same for yourself? Buy yourself some flowers and chocolates and brighten up your day. Or, why not take yourself out for a fancy lunch, dinner or wine and dine?
A Jar Of Sweet Little Nothings
Part of our New Year's Resolutions is to show self love and what better way to do so than by giving yourself words of affirmation? For this, there is nothing better than compiling love letters in a jar. Simply write 365 love notes, each expressing good affirmations about yourself, stick them in a jar and you have notes of encouragement to help you whenever you are feeling down.
