Hey guys! Today we've got a special holiday episode of Wellcast.
And I invited my single sister, Karen.
It was your hibernating?
You know that this Thursday is Valentine's Day
But you know what?
It's also just February 14th
One day that doesn't have to be a big deal at all
Uhm… unless it's your birthday like our designer
Happy birthday, Stephanie
So what if you'll head off with your boyfriend?
Or let them go to that overpriced dinner at a restaurant
that requires a tie and reservations.
In honor of my sister Karen
We have six awesome things
that don't require a special someone
to make your Valentine's Day special,
and just for you.
Step 1. Alright, don't let yourself get pressured into doing anything big.
Valentine's Day has grown into a huge consumer-driven holiday
One that you're seemingly getting pressed into celebrating
That's a selling term you could look it up,
but one advantage of being single is
not having to stress out about what you're gonna do on the fourteenth!
Don't worry about finding a date
Or, on the flip side, try to stridently assert the fact that you're single
Just have fun, do something for yourself, be happy.
Step 2. Okay, as Donna says on "Parks and Rec"
"Treat yourself, Girl."
All that money that you're not spending on an overprice dinner
splurge on yourself, okay?
Make a plan to do something that you've been wanting to do for a really long time
Get a pedicure. Okay.
Buy yourself a sonic screwdriver
Go to an improv class, yes
And give yourself the gift of a truly relaxing day
Tip 3. Friends
The people, alright, not the show
Well, it could be the show
'cause you could spend the whole day with people who mean a lot to you
Watching Friends
or larking with your... ah... weird friends
Or geeking out watching Community with your study buddies
which are kind of like friends
Or you could go to the beach with your pals
which are probably people that you've met on Facebook
I don't call anyone "pals"
Do you..do you call.. It doesn't if you have pals hang out with them
Look, you're not the only single person.
That's all I'm trying to say, okay?
And if you're worried about missing out on Thursday,
plan a big event with your friends.
host a board game night
you could even invite a couple of friends that aren't really in to Valentine's Day.
Tip 4. Exercise
I'm telling you to exercise on Valentine's Day. Okay?
Get some fresh air, go on a hike or a bike ride,
take your dog on a long walk.
After all, pets are proven to make you happier.
Remember our episode on pet therapy? It's all true
Tip number six, volunteer
Okay, this is a solid one.
Spend some time at a local soup kitchen, animal shelter,
or some other charitable organization that needs your help.
Huh? With so many people spending time together on February 14th,
chances are they're a little short-staffed.
It's a great way to give back to your community,
and help others feel good.
Tip seven, above all,
just a reminder, February 14th is just another day.
Don't feel pressured to make it special.
In fact, you don't even have to take any of the advice we gave you today.
Just be yourself, eat chocolates, surround yourself with people you like,
have a Breaking Bad marathon, do what you need to do.
From all of us here at WellCast,
Happy Valentine's Day.
