The longest, most reliable relationship in life is the one you have with yourself. Sure, it’s great to have someone beside you, but at the end of the day it’s important to be happy. This means not being afraid to pamper yourself and give yourself a little lovin’ too!
You work hard. Whether it’s school, a family or just trying to make it to the gym, it can be easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-day stresses of life. That’s why it’s important to slow down, take a deep breath and reward yourself for doing the best that you can. So buy those new running shoes, grab that candy bar at the checkout or buy that novel that you’ve been eyeing up! You work hard and treating yourself every now and then only makes life easier.
Personal time is something that many of us don’t get very often. Without time to unwind and relax, we easily lose our sense of who we are and our goals in life. It’s important to take as much or as little time that we can get at the end of the day unwinding and taking in the highlights and lowlights of the day. Starting a journal can be a great way to not only reward yourself, but to keep you on track with life goals and accomplishments that can so often slip away from us.
Why not take yourself out to lunch? Sure, the ‘table for one’ can get a bad rap, but sometimes grabbing a quick lunch or sitting at the coffee house alone to get some work done is not only a great change of pace, but can be more productive as well. We’re not saying to get rid of all the company in your life, but taking time every now and then to be your own company can be just as great.
If you’re not comfortable heading out of the house by yourself, there are a million and one ways to show yourself some love at home too! One of the best ways to pamper yourself is with an at-home spa day. Start with a relaxing bubble bath followed by a pedicure and your old, favorite movie. Nothing’s better than taking a well deserved day in to unwind from the week and give yourself some lovin’!
Whether it’s an afternoon out or a late night in, it’s important to take some ‘me’ time and relax and unwind from our crazy, beautiful lives. No matter how much we try to live up staying organized and on track with our lives, everyone needs some time to rekindle the greatest relationship of all –the one we have with ourselves.
