Celebrating Singles Day: Embrace Self-Love (Whether You’re Single or Not!)
In today's world, we are seeing a shift in how society views relationships, marriage, and what it means to be happy. Singles Day, which originated in Asia, is celebrated on November 11th (11/11). It’s a testament to this change, highlighting the joy of being single and the importance of self-care.
It's not about being alone, but rather about being complete by oneself. Celebrate you because you're truly worth it!
I find this day's concept incredibly inspiring because I believe it’s important to celebrate its ethos–whether you are single or not. Here's why:
I began creating “Radiance Retreats” (self-love adventures, self-care sabbaticals, exploration playdates, inspiration getaways, creativity excursions, and frequency equilibriums) after my twenty-year marriage ended.
(To learn how to create your own Radiance Retreat, check out the Radical Radiance book.)
Despite evolving into a supportive friendship with my ex-husband, who remains a wonderful father to our daughter, I felt lost—no longer just a wife, mother, and entrepreneur, but someone trying to rediscover my own identity and reinvent a new life.
As I ventured into the daunting world as a single mom in New York City, I decided to plan activities that made me feel alive and vibrant. I didn’t know it then, but I was learning how to find my bliss, elevate my energy, and shine on my own.
Our lit-from-within vibrancy emerges when we learn to enjoy spending quality time creating, exploring passions, being kind to ourselves, and bringing bliss and flow to our everyday lives–whether we are single or in a relationship.
Get excited about new projects and aspirations by creating a holistic 90-day vision.
The Savor Beauty Planner isn’t just about scheduling tasks, it’s about creating space for reflection and intention-setting, whether setting new personal records, starting a passion project, or prioritizing self-care.
The planner has thought prompts to design the life you aspire to lead over the next three months.
You can also join me for my virtual 90-Day Vision Workshop, where I sit down with you to inspire, motivate, and equip you with the tools and strategies to make your goals a reality. This workshop is self-paced, so you're able to access it at your leisure.
Make this day a celebration of self-love by indulging in what brings you joy and relaxation. Whether it's a spa day, a delightful dessert, or a leisurely walk in nature, savor the act of giving to yourself.
Level up your game by learning something new, losing yourself in a game-changing book, or joining a cool workshop. Diving deep into what you love boosts your skills and opens your mind to fresh ideas.
For example, I enjoy Kundalini yoga, so I began reading Essential Kundalini Yoga, leading to a Kundalini yoga certification course to deepen my practice. It opened my eyes to a whole new world of energy and chakras, adding a new dimension to life.
Add a mindful practice to your daily routine with a beauty ritual. For instance, you can unwind each evening with a facial massage using a luxurious beauty oil and face cream (I like Savor Beauty’s Deeply Nourishing Duo–all skin + self-care sets are on sale for 20% off until November 22!)
Work the serum gently into your skin, focusing on areas of tension to help release stress and deliver skin-loving vitamins for youthful radiance.
Seal in the benefits with the Truffle Face Cream for luminosity and radiance. During this ritual, you can take a moment to reflect on your day and affirm your self-worth.
Find a feel-good movie or an engaging series on Netflix, and combine it with a self-care regimen for a multi-tasking night!
Applying a soothing facial mask can elevate your movie night into a restorative ritual, leaving you feeling rested and refreshed. Right now, I’m obsessed with Suits and doing a leave-on mask (Chamomile Moisture Mask with a drop of the Restore Fountain of Youth Elixir.)
Singles Day is a beautiful reminder that our happiness and worth are not defined by our relationship status. It's not about being alone, but rather about being complete by oneself. Celebrate you because you're truly worth it! 🌟
