As the Cyndi Lauper song goes, girls just want to have fun. Yes, you do and you deserve to. And this ‘80s pop hit still rings a bell in a fresh, new decade, especially as we celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Just because you’re single (a.k.a. self-partnered) and your social media feed is nudging you to play mellow songs in one corner, it doesn’t mean you should hibernate on the day of hearts.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect prompt to finally embrace who you are — after all, self-love is an action. If you’re waiting for the chance, the hearts day is the right cue to do what you love — whether on your own or with the company of your best buddies or family.
Curious how you can enjoy the day even without a “significant other?” We took self-love notes from mental health advocate, breast cancer survivor, love guru and pop doctor Gia Sison on how to practice self-love at SM on Valentine’s Day.
