It’s that time again…
There are two types of people in this world: Those who love Valentine’s Day and those who wish their calendars went from February 13 straight to the 15. If you’re part of the latter, this article’s for you. This year, Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday so you could easily go into the office and pretend like it’s any other day. Of course, you’ll have to shield your eyes from the bouquets of flowers getting delivered to your coworkers then come straight home after work to avoid all those lovey-dovey couples in restaurants. Or…you could take advantage of this holiday that begrudgingly comes every year while boycotting it. Here’s how:
Learn to love something new
Valentine’s Day is about expressing your love for your significant other with lavish gifts and treats. Boycott Valentine’s Day this year by learning to love something new. Try out that yoga class you’ve been meaning to go to for the last couple of months, or pick up a new hobby such as drawing or writing.
There is no better way to make yourself feel good and appreciated than giving your time to others. Instead of sitting in a crowded restaurant filled with couples gazing into each other’s eyes, volunteer at a local food pantry or animal shelter.
