Be Someone’s Secret Valentine
If you have to spend Valentines’ Day at work, decide to be someone’s Secret Valentine and enjoy the day watching glowing as they wonder who has sent them such as lovely present.

Choose someone who is hurting terribly from a recent divorce, separation, broken engagement or terminated long term relationship and do something lovely for them.

For example you can send them a bunch of flowers or a gift voucher for their favorite shop or spa or restaurant anonymously and watch as enjoy them and wonder who loves them so much.

Check into a Spa
Give yourself a special Valentine’s Day gift and check into a Day Spa or a Destination Spa and spend the day receiving tender loving care in the form of pampering pedicures, manicures, massages and facials.

You can even go ahead and buy spa gift certificates for all you single friends so that you can enjoy the pampering together.


Journal
Journaling is a very flexible activity since you only need a journal and a pen and you can journal while luxuriating in your languid bath or while hanging on a hammock or while lying in bed or while sipping your favorite smoothie or you can schedule a specific time to sit and write.

There are several things you can journal about during Valentine’s Day. These include:
a) Jot down your feelings about being single. Write without censoring yourself since this is very effective catharsis. Write until you feel the oppressive weight of loneliness and other hurts lifting from your heart.

If you don’t know your life’s purpose, understand that it involves serving others by doing something that you love while using your gifts and talents. Then formulate realistic and attainable short term and long term goals to fulfill Your Life’s Purpose.
d) Remind yourself that you are special and lovely and lovely by writing down all the attributes that make you a special and lovely and loveable person. These can include:
