Man holding arms out and smiling

Finding activities to do on Valentine’s Day if you are single or have recently lost a loved one can feel overwhelming and sad. You may find yourself simply wanting to stay home. Staying home is an excellent option if that is what you need for your mental health. Others may benefit from getting out and doing fun activities. Here are a few suggestions to consider exploring on Valentine’s Day.

See a Movie

Are there any movies you have wanted to see? Does getting a big bucket of popcorn and some candy sound fun? Consider reaching out to friends and family and seeing a movie as a group. Movies can be great activities to get your mind off your worries for a bit.

Take a Hike

Spending time outside can have a tremendous effect on your mental health and overall well-being. If the weather cooperates, consider exploring a state park and venturing down an unknown trail. Learning to be happy and content all on your own takes time and work. Talk with your therapist about how you feel about doing things on your own.

Plan a Trip

Planning a trip can be exciting. Travel can help you to get your mind off Valentine’s Day. Is there anywhere you have wanted to go? Planning a trip can be time-consuming (in a good way), and deciding what you want to do and when can be fun. Spend your time planning a trip, even if that trip may be far into the future.

Splurge on Something

If you have the ability, splurge on something fun that you have been wanting. You do not need to be in a relationship to be treated to fun and nice things. Gift yourself something that you have been wanting. Head to that local bakery and buy those super tasty cookies or the florist and get yourself a beautiful floral arrangement. You are worthy of those things.

Finding fun and engaging activities that help you feel happy and content as a single person on Valentine’s Day is essential for your mental health and overall well-being. Some may find activities such as going to the movies or the mall entertaining. Others may find relaxation and happiness in spending time outdoors.
