It's 2019, which means that Valentines Day is not only a celebration for couples; but, it's also a day for you to celebrate YOU, and this is whether you are in a relationship or not. Here are five things you can do to treat yourself this Valentines Day:

Get a Massage

Your body experiences massive amounts of stress during the semester. Thank your body, and your mind,  for everything that it does by getting a massage this February 14. Through Campus Recreation's Fitness and Wellness program you can get many different quality massages, including a deep tissue massage, hot stone therapy, and trigger point therapy at a great Student Rate. 

Take a Yoga Class

There have been many studies that show the benefits of mindfulness, a practice greatly utilized in yoga. Some of these benefits include reduced stress, risk of developing heart disease, and high-blood pressure. This Valentines Day focus on yourself by taking a yoga class and practice being mindful.

Make Yourself (and/or Your Partner) a Decadent Meal or Short On Time... We Have Some Ideas  

Homemade meals are an excellent way to show appreciation to yourself and or a significant other. It doesn't have to be expensive either; but, a warm, homemade meal goes a long way.

Another option if you are short on time is to head on over to the Pie Café in the Campus Commons and treat yourself, and perhaps someone else, to a delicious pie. 

Do a Secret Valentine Gift-Exchange

Organize a gift exchange where you and a group of friends randomly select names. The person's name that each person receives is the person that they can by chocolates or flowers for, this way everyone gets a "valentine." 

Take the Night Off and Go Out

Go on a date! Whether this be a romantic date or a night out with your friends, go out and have some fun! 11th Ave A Capella Group is hosting a show at the Moxi Theatre in Downtown Greeley this Valentines Day, and this would be a fun event to go to regardless of your relationship status.
