Singles Awareness Day self-care ideas
Celebrate Anti-Valentine's Day with silk pajamas, yoga classes and other goodies.
Mark your calendars — February 15 is Singles Awareness Day, which means a whole 24 hours to focus on you. If you’re pumped to indulge in the ultimate anti-Valentine’s Day event, we pulled together some of the best self-care experiences, from a photography class with Annie Leibovitz to a gin-making kit. Get ready to unwind, relax and celebrate some glorious solo time.
8 ways to treat yourself on Singles Awareness Day
1. Make yourself a homemade cocktail.
Try your hand at mixology and say a big cheers to your independence. This gin-making kit is a bestseller on Etsy and features botanical blends like licorice root, lavender flowers and juniper berries. The package comes with twelve glass cylinders, two sleek glass bottles and recipes for concocting the perfect winter drink.
2. Give your body some much-needed TLC.
2020 was a long year — so gifting yourself with head-to-toe indulgence is fully justified. Skincare brand favorite Dr. Jart+ released a kit designed especially for sensitive skin, featuring a calming mist, serum and color-correcting treatment. (Say goodbye to all that pesky redness!) Added bonus points? This package has nearly 27,000 loves on Sephora.
3. Light a candle and take a long bath.
Nothing says self-care more than soaking in some luxurious bath time. Make the experience all the more calming when you light the celebrity-favorite candle Diptyque (Meghan Markle, Kate Hudson, Kerry Washington and Beyoncé are all fans). There are a ton of yummy options to choose from, but we love the Figuier/Fig Tree Candle, which smells like warm bark.
4. Strike a pose and zen out.
Whether you’re a skilled yoga practitioner or a total newbie, YogiApproved.com has a virtual class for you. Choose from hundreds of online options, including Yin for Anxiety, Conscious Flow and De-Stress Yoga. Want to totally unwind? There are also mindfulness sessions that help you achieve some much-needed peace. Memberships are $14/month, or you can try a drop-in class for $5.
And while you’re at it, you might as well treat yourself to a new yoga mat that’s sure to inspire peace and calmness, like this reversible one from Gaiam.
5. Journal all your feelings.
Singles Awareness Day is all about you. Get your thoughts and feelings down in “Let That Sh*t Go: A Journal for Leaving Your Bullsh*t Behind and Creating a Happy Life.” This #1 bestseller on Amazon features journaling activities that promise to “lift your spirit a little f*cking higher.” Also, the reviews are glowing, with one customer saying the book can “change your life” and another noting that it’s “practical and hilarious.”
6. Slip into something a little more comfy.
Make your nighttime so much more elegant when you put on this midnight black silk pajama set from the luxury lingerie designer La Perla. You’ll catch the best zzz’s when you’re wrapped in silk — and you’ll look pretty damn good while you’re at it.
7. Color your way to relaxation.
Coloring isn’t just for kids. It’s also an adult-approved way to unwind and zen out. Try your hand at filling in the gorgeous floral designs in this book by Johanna Basford, who has been dubbed the “colorist queen” by New York Magazine. You’ll leave all your stresses behind as you get lost in fairytale gardens and water poppies.
8. Learn a new skill from the best in the industry.
Let Martin Scorsese teach you the art of filmmaking. Hone your photography chops with the help of Annie Leibovitz. Learn how to write a hit song during a private lesson with Alicia Keys. Masterclass offers a roster of A-list instructors who teach a comprehensive series of classes on their trade. Score access to hundreds of masterclasses for $180/year or $15/monthly.
