PAMPER YOURSELF WITH A VALENTINE BUFFET


Even though there are various schools of thoughts about the origin of valentine, its celebration has come to stay. While some people believe that Valentine’s Day is celebrated in the middle of February to commemorate the anniversary of valentine’s death or burial which occurred around A.D 270-Others claimed that the Christian church may have decided to place St. Valentine’s feast day in the middle of February in an effort to recognize St. Valentine.

Again, other schools hold the view that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape the harsh Roman Prison conditions, where most prison atrocities such as beating and torcher occurred.

5. DISCONNECT YOURSELF FROM YOUR DAILY ACTIVITY

I know there are people who think setting aside a time to pamper oneself is a waste of time. It’s not. Your body at a point in time needs rest and you must obey its orders so that it can last you a lifetime.

Acknowledge the day you set aside to pamper yourself and avoid all form of human activity that will nullify the beauty of the day.

6. READ YOUR FAVOURITE NOVEL

You have listed a number of books in your wish list to read probably this year. What time can be better than the special day you reserved to pamper yourself?

Don’t focus any other things in life apart from the theme of the story. Disconnect yourself from the world and relax your brain and mind. This will make you better when you resume your normal work.

7. WATCH A ROMANTIC MOVIE

You can request for your favorite movie in your hotel or any other place you considered private and “bury” yourself in the movie- while letting go of all attachments of life.

8. DISCONNECT YOURSELF FROM THE SOCIAL MEDIA

Even though the social media assist us in our social engagement with many people in diverse ways, studies upon studies revealed that the social media if not properly used can have negative effects in our life. Some of the effects include Depression and Anxiety, Fear of Missing Out, Unrealistic Expectations, Negative Body Image, Unhealthy Sleep Patterns, General Addiction etc. With the worst social media apps being Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat when it comes to addiction.

So, on the day you set aside to pamper yourself, please switch-off your mobile or cell phone completely. I would advise you that you should not take it along on that day. You aren’t going to miss anything. Don’t allow your mind to deceive you. Disengage yourself all together from the external world for at least a day or two

9. SPEND A DAY OR TWO AT THE COUNTRYSIDE

Our countryside largely remains cool with less or no commercial activities as we do in the cities. These places may be ideal for you- by visiting a local resort or any place of interest in the local area and book a motel for your peaceful relaxation. Enjoy the siren atmosphere and taste the local dishes. You will enjoy their food.

We’ve identified 9 things you can do to pamper yourself once in a year. You have only one body, and one life- take very good care of it.
