This Valentine’s day, here are some tips that guarantee to leave you with enough time for yourself:

  • Learn to Say ‘No’. One of the things that you may be guilty of is giving in to invites, favors and activities that can keep you preoccupied. Know when to say ‘No’ and you’ll appreciate even the littlest time that you can save for yourself.

Add bubbles, herbs, or rose petals to the bath, light a scented candle, put on some soft music, or bring a book or a plate of your favorite snacks with you. Take a nap if you feel like it.
