Tips for Surviving Valentine’s Day!

TIP #1: Whether you are married or single – Check your expectations at the door! Focus on giving, not receiving! (Gift free animated E- cards to everyone you know, gift one rose to someone you especially admire or Gift your time to a place that needs it (non-profit, food bank, after-school program).
TIP #2: If you’re alone (without a romantic partner) so what! Love the ones you’re with! (Find other people who are single and hang out with them or have a pot luck dinner with one requirement – everyone brings something red.)
TIP #3: Compose and mail yourself a love letter! (I’m not kidding. I do this at least twice a year and I’ve been happily married for twenty years.)
TIP #4: Call, email or text three people you care about and tell them why you love them!
TIP #5: Even if you have a partner, buy yourself a gift for under $10 that says I LOVE ME. (Example: an eraser with a smiley face, an Iphone Ap, a coffee mug with a positive saying on it.)
TIP #6: Set up Valentine’s Day traditions with people you love way ahead of time. Agree with your mother, cousin and aerobics teacher that you’ll exchange Vday cards this year. That way, when you go to your mailbox on February 14th, you’ll have lots of love waiting for you.
TIP #7: Gift your love to a child or young person (Example: make Valentine Day cards with your niece, bake heart-shaped cookies with your best friend’s son, help a teenager ace their homework and give them four red hearts (not stars!) as validation of their worth.)
TIP #8: Count your blessings. Gratitude is an express train to your loving of your self, others and the world at large. (Example: I’m grateful I have a job. I’m grateful I have a best friend. I’m grateful I have a sport I love to play.)
TIP#9: Find a funny cartoon, saying or joke about love. Blast it to your email list. Share it on Facebook. Twitter it too. Making people laugh is one of the most loving things you can do.
TIP#10: Practice random acts of kindness. Give a Valentine Day offering to three people you don’t know. Example: a homeless man, a Federal Express person, a taxi driver. Giving with no strings attached is the greatest gift of all!
