Is there anything better than feeling good? When you’re stressed out and in a low mood, nothing beats shaking it off. But how can you make that happen when you’re in a funk?
Treating yourself is so much fun. Yet, it’s easy to think you have to go big and bold for it to count as a treat. When really, all you need is a little luxury served in such a simple way.
And the best part? It’s absolutely essential to add treating yourself to your weekly agenda. Because who doesn’t want to feel fabulous every single day?
If you need to relax and need a mood boost, here’s six simple ways to treat yourself today.
It sounds like such a small and simple thing to do, but making yourself a tea is such a treat. Picking out your favourite blend, really being in the moment, and savouring every sip can feel so special.
When you’re always so busy, slowing down to make yourself a drink you really enjoy can be so enjoyable.
Make sure that you’re present and really take in the process of preparing the drink. Then sit somewhere peaceful and really soak up the moment. It’s such a calming and luxurious thing to do.
It’s easy to take the beautiful world we live in for granted. Sunshine, gorgeous flowers, and wildlife are all so precious. But we often overlook them.
One of the most beneficial ways to treat yourself is to get out into nature. It’s so good for your mind and body.
Spending some time sat out on the grass reading a book, heading on a walk, or exploring a local nature reserve can work wonders. If you want to reset your mind or feel more grounded, this simple treat will do exactly that.
Nothing is as soothing for your soul and spirit that a sumptuous pamper evening. Running a bath, looking after your skin, and switching off is one of life’s most simple luxuries.
And best of all, it’s free. Spending a few hours on your own, getting away from technology, and allowing yourself to switch off is the ultimate heaven.
When you next need an indulgent treat, let pampering take centre stage.
Cooking for yourself doesn’t always feel like a luxury. But in a world where we wolf down our food while working on other tasks and order takeout on a regular basic, making a homemade meal can be such a treat.
If you don’t usually prepare anything too fun and fancy at home, this could be a fabulous idea for you. Whether you want to pull together an impromptu date night at home, treat yourself to three courses, or even invite friends over when you can, it’s so much fun.
Taking the time to prepare something special with incredible ingredients and actually enjoy a decadent meal might be exactly what you need right now.
But sometimes, you really do just want to treat yourself to something special. When you work hard, it’s nice to be able to invest in things that you love. There is nothing wrong with indulging in a luxury from time to time and when you need it most, a trip to Hatton Garden Jewellers is the way to go. You deserve something that is just yours, that you don't have to share and that gives you a thrill every time you spend your money.
And as much as the best things in life are free, it’s okay to splash out every once in a while too. When you’ve got your eye on a designer bag, jewelry like Trollbeads, or even a new car, it’s fun to treat yourself. You’ve earned it!
If you’re overworked and a little stressed out but you’re earning that money, why not spend a little of it? You know you’re financially secure so finally getting yourself a gift you’ve always wanted can feel like such a fantastic reward.
And then there’s the idea of doing something a little out of character. Something that you don’t usually do but that feels like such a treat.
It could be watching a movie in the afternoon. Taking a day off work. Booking a trip. Or even planning something big that you’ve always wanted to do.
When you’re not feeling yourself or you want to perk yourself up, doing something fun and frivolous could be the perfect way to treat yourself. So laugh, have fun, and enjoy yourself – because you deserve it.
