Women tend to take care of everyone else and sometime don’t even make time to do the same for themselves. So if you tend to short-change yourself and put your needs last, you deserve some self-care. And that doesn’t have to mean taking a vacation or a trip to the spa, these are small, affordable ways to pamper yourself and you totally deserve it.
- Buy yourself flowers - You don’t have to wait for your birthday or your anniversary to get some fresh bloom in your home, treat yo’ self. You really can have nice things.
- Take a day off in the middle of the week, for no reason - Why save all your paid time off for a vacation when you could take a random day off and do anything you want to with it? Have lunch with a friend, get a manicure, visit a museum, see a movie, or just get stuff done around the house. It’s your day and you can do anything you want with it.
- Splurge on the quality option - Sure, organic blueberries cost $2 more, but if that upgrade makes you feel better, go for it. Spending a little extra to satisfy yourself is totally worth it, especially if your default option is always the cheapest.
- Take five for you - Give yourself five extra minutes in your morning routine to do something to start your day off on a positive note. Maybe you’d enjoy a few minutes to stretch with some yoga poses, or to read the headlines with a few sips of coffee before rushing out the door, or just have a buffer so you don’t feel so frantic when you’re getting ready, make it happen for yourself because you’re worth it.
