7 simple ways to treat yourself
1. Take time for yourself
When was the last time you did a manicure or pedicure? When was the last time you pamper yourself at a spa? When was the last time you made yourself a lovely breakfast? Why not buy yourself flowers if you haven’t received any in a while? Why not go shopping? In the midst of all that we are going through with the pandemic, it can be hard to do something for you. You don’t have to spend money, a simple thing as a movie night with family or taking some time to meditate or read a book, taking a nap. Just spend some time with you, and do you!
2. Enjoy Nature
3. Give yourself the gift of learning something new
4. Read something interesting and inspirational
5. Put off the chores until tomorrow
Sometimes you need to forget about everything. As a young teenager at my first job, I wanted to do everything in the workday. I would never leave tasks for the following day. One morning a co-worker told me that work could not die, but I can. That statement was an eye-opener that stayed with me for life. I always try to do what I can and leave some for another day. I choose to manage my energy.
6. Compliment yourself
If nobody compliments you, you can choose to compliment yourself. Write to yourself and a love letter or a brief note. Tell yourself how much you are loved and appreciated. Tell yourself how much God loves you. Tell yourself the most beautiful things that you wish others can tell you. Start loving yourself!
7. Give yourself the gift of taking your dreams seriously
What are some of the things that you have been putting off for years? What are some of the goals you wish to accomplish? Take some time to think about at least three to five key life goals you want to achieve over the next year. Please write it down along with the steps you need to take to achieve them. The time has come to take you seriously.
