Many people can experience higher levels of anxiety this time of year. Much of it is due to societal expectations of what people “should” be doing on Valentine’s Day and the inevitable comparisons that happen because of it.

2. Taking control over the day and what it can mean for each individual

(More specific ideas and suggestions for self-care and how to know when you are in need/letting go of the guilt that comes with it, and how it fosters self-love)
