Do you ever feel like you devote so much time to work, friends and family and you’re looking for some easy ways to treat yourself and show yourself love? You’ve come to the right place! I made a list of 7 easy ways to show yourself some love and treat yourself like the princess that you are!
1. Buy Yourself Some Flowers
Seems cheesy, but flowers can really brighten up your mood and day! You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to treat yourself to a bouquet of flowers, celebrate you and your accomplishments today. Regardless of what kind of day you had or crappy work has been lately, be proud of how far you’ve come and all the great things in your life!
2. Indulge in Some 'Me' Time
Take an afternoon or day to do whatever you want to do! There is no better way to show yourself love than spending your time doing exactly what you want to do. Go to the spa, get a pedi or take yourself out on a date! I’m sure you have a list of things you’ve wanted to do when you had spare time, now’s the time to go out and do it and not feel guilty about it!
3. Make a List
Make a list of things that you love about yourself and keep it handy for those days you need some extra love in your life. Everyone has qualities that are special and unique and there is nothing wrong with being proud of who you are, loving yourself and reminding yourself of just how awesome you are every now and then! The list can be as long or short as you want, just jot down some things that make you special
4. Take a Nap
You read that right, getting some much-needed shut-eye is a great way to show yourself some love! We often feel guilty about taking naps and feel like we should be doing something more productive with our time but in reality, nothing feels better or makes us more productive than getting rest. Take some time out of your busy day and curl up in some comfy clothes and indulge in a good snooze fest.
5. Give Yourself a Treat
Treat yourself to a great meal, dessert or even a non-edible treat like a new dress. Go ahead, you deserve it! Just like taking a nap, many people forgo treating themselves because they feel bad about spoiling themselves every now and then. I’m giving you a free pass to treat yourself to something nice and not feel guilty or wasteful at all! You’re making an investment in yourself and you’re totally worth it!
6. Spend Time Alone
Turn off your TV, iPad and cell phone and spend some time alone with yourself. Take this time to journal about your day, take a nice bath, read or do none of the above and take it easy! Free yourself some distractions and just be alone with yourself. Forget about everything else going on in the world and just feel free to be you and do what you want. We’re always so connected to work and the rest of the world that even when we get a free minute, we’re responding to texts, emails and whatever else is being asked of us. Tune them out and tune in to your needs.
7. Do Something You Love
Have you always wanted to play an instrument, sing or be in a play? Well, what are you waiting for, sign up for lessons and show yourself some love by doing something you love! Stop waiting for the ideal time to take cooking classes or learn how to be a cage fighter because that «ideal» time will never come. Put yourself first for once and use your time to do something you’re passionate about. Don’t be afraid to step up and go for something you want!
There are tons of ways to show yourself love and treat yourself like royalty but the hard part is to actually do it. Take time each day to love yourself and appreciate who you are. We spend so much time rushing around for work and loved ones and always seem to neglect ourselves and our needs so start making yourself a priority and show yourself some love!
