When you have a day off from work and don’t have plans with loved ones, treat yourself to a self-care day. Slow down and appreciate yourself for all the hard work you do. Self-care can mean a different thing for each person. Decide which of these methods is most ideal for you.
If you love a glamming up and living like a diva, treat yourself to a day of primping. Visit a laser bar and spa to get your eyebrows or body hair taken care of. Get a face mask done to exfoliate your skin. Go to a salon and get your hair, nails and makeup done. Looking good can make you feel just as mood. If you got some spare change, splurge on a shopping spree and treat yourself to a new handbag or the latest Apple technology.
Go on a Day Trip
If your idea of relaxing is being adventurous, disconnect from society and go on a day trip. If the weather is nice, go to a nearby beach. Bring a book or boogie board for a nice day of fun in the sun. Go to a local park or hiking trail for a walk in nature. Go somewhere near you that you’ve always been wanting to try but never had the time like a café or museum.
Unwind and Relax
If you like a simple day off to yourself, there’s nothing wrong with staying at home and relaxing. Take the time to do an at-home yoga practice or meditation. Hire a massage therapist to come to your house and give you a deep tissue massage. You can even just curl up under a blanket and binge a Netflix show that you’ve been meaning to watch and make a nice bowl of popcorn to go with it.
However you choose to spend your day off, make sure you remember to be present and put off any tasks you may have to get done until the next day.
