Happy Valentine’s Day Ottewell!

 

Celebrating Valentine’s Day during the COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. Here are some ways to enjoy yourself on February 14.

Valentine’s Day isn’t only about dating, chocolate and roses. February 14 is also a day to celebrate all of the loving relationships in your life, from yourself to friends to family. Here are some ways to enjoy yourself on February 14 this year:

1)Send virtual valentines
2)Make a valentine card for a neighbor
3)Hang out with loved ones – call, or cuddle up
4)Focus on yourself -take care, relax and reflect
5)Remember, it’s just another day
6)Get support-If you’re feeling down on Valentine’s Day (or any other day of the year), it’s important to get support. Talking about things can help — you can reach out to a friend, relative, Elder, counsellor, teacher or anyone else you trust. You can also contact Kids Help Phone to talk about what’s going on for you.


Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be about dating relationships. Celebrating the other loving relationships in your life, especially the one with yourself, is a great way to spend February 14.
