Surviving Your First Valentine's Day After Divorce

5 Ways To Celebrate Valentine’s Day After Divorce

After going through a recent divorce, you may be avoiding thinking about celebrating Valentine’s Day. Though it may feel lonely this year, there are ways you can celebrate the holiday and have a good time using these tips.

1. Have a Game Night

Now is a good time to surround yourself with fun and friends. You don’t have to spend your Valentine’s Day alone. Consider inviting a few friends over who don’t mind a little competition! Whip out your best games to distract yourself from thinking about dating. If you can’t meet up in person, consider doing the activity virtually.

2. Host a Virtual Party

If you generally go out on Valentine’s Day to parties or gatherings, hosting a virtual party using a video site like Zoom with your friends and family could be a good idea.

You can play music for your friends and make yourself a drink. You can create recipes and exchange them with your guests to share reviews and see who can come up with the tastiest ideas. If swapping recipes isn’t your thing, you may consider virtually watching a movie

3. Ask Your Kids to Get Creative

If you have kids, consider asking them what they would like to do for the day. You’re not alone, and your children may have ideas that will boost everyone’s mood.

Think of arts and crafts you all can enjoy and make the day all about family. Spending time outdoors can help boost your mood and get you through the day with positivity. Here are some fun ideas to consider:

  • Make s’mores.
  • Go swimming.
  • Ride bikes.
  • Play an outdoor game.

4. Take Time to Relax

If everything else mentioned above sounds like too much for you, consider taking a load off and spending time relaxing. Find ways to have ‘me time’ and take your mind off things without feeding into negative emotions. You can find your zen using these tips:

  • Take an online yoga class.
  • Take a nice bubble bath.
  • Use an electronic massager.
  • Give yourself a facial.
  • Order your favorite food
  • Watch any movie that makes you laugh

5. Consult a Attorney

Life may seem sad now, and going through a recent divorced is tough, but it doesn’t have to ruin your Valentine’s Day. You can still find happiness and have a brighter day.
