11 Nov Ways to Spoil Yourself and Why You Should
Many of us write New Year’s resolutions about what we want to improve in our lives. That is a worthwhile exercise as we sometimes act like control freaks. To truly stay motivated, do not be so focused that you forget the little things. Pampering yourself is necessary to regain perspective, to boost your confidence and to hit the reset button every now and then. Spoiling yourself is not just nice, it gives you more energy to do something good as well.
So what are you waiting for? Check out these ways to spoil yourself and make some time for yourself. Celebrate you!
1. Buy your favorite drink
It would be cheaper if you make coffee at home each morning, but stopping by Starbucks breaks your routine and is a treat to look forward to every now and then. Not to mention that you support the Starbucks Foundation that helps coffee, tea and cocoa communities all over the world. Of course, you can also make your guilty pleasure drink at home by following these favorite Starbucks recipes.
2. Sleep in an extra hour
We all know that we do not get enough sleep. Build some time into your day for a real power nap or stay in bed a bit longer to watch your favorite Netflix series. We are sure you will not regret it.
When you are working towards a big goal, treat yourself with small presents along the way. A new sweater or perfume becomes tangible evidence of the results of your work. Plus, you help others when you buy from an ethical brand like ours. Our personal weakness is a fine piece of jewelry that goes with anything.
4. Plan a trip
Think about the places you would like to go next to get away from all the craziness. And this time, do not just sign up for those price alerts at Skyscanner, take time to plan and book your ticket. If you are still feeling guilty, look up volunteer programs nearby your hotel or Airbnb so you can work for a good cause during a few days of your trip.
5. Get active
If you enjoy sports, sign up for a local race or yoga class. It gives you a goal and some time for yourself that is not part of your daily routine. Tip: Download the Charity Miles App. This app lets you log your movements, from running and walking to dancing and biking, and earn money for a charity of your choice.
Schedule mini-staycations on Sunday afternoons to unplug, shut down all your gadgets and catch up on reading, listening to music and spending time with friends and family. These mini-breaks recharge you for the upcoming week.
7. Get great tickets
How often did you want to attend a good concert or game but did not go? Next time, just buy that ticket and, if you do not go often, buy the best one you can get. It is all about the experience and if you are going, it might as well be on the front row.
