It is very important to treat yourself every now and again. We spend so much time working and taking care of others that we sometimes forget to take good care of ourselves. I know we mums are so guilty of this. We spend hours taking care of the children and running the home, neglecting ourselves in the process. I am guilty of putting myself last almost every time. Life gets so busy with stuff that needs doing and it is super easy to care for yourself. We forget that for us to be our best, we have to feel good and treat ourselves regularly.
This post is a reminder for you to take care of yourself and treat yourself to some luxuries from time to time. If you wondering how you should treat yourself regularly, here are some ideas you may like.
Buy yourself that jewellery
Diamonds are a woman’s best friend, and it is a lovely way of treating yourself. I recently came across Chapelle Jewellers and I fell in love with their amazing selection of jewellery and watches. I would love to spoil myself with some diamond earrings in future. Earrings are my favourite kind of jewellery. They are so precious and I like investing in them because I wear them pretty much everyday.
Buying yourself jewellery is a great way to treat yourself if you are into earrings, necklaces, bracelets, watches, rings and the rest.
Book yourself in for a massage
I love having a massage. It leaves me relaxed and ready to get on with what needs doing. Having regular massages is a way to treat yourself. It may be pricey to get an hour’s massage (anything else is too short) but it does a lot of good for your physical and mental health.
I am badly in need of a full body massage. I have not had one in awhile thanks to the busy summer holidays. So I will be booking a session in the next few days when we go on holiday.
Go on holiday
Holidays are expensive which is why so many people hardly go anywhere these days, but they don’t necessarily have to be. Holidays are a nice way to treat yourself. It doesn’t have to be anything luxurious or even outside the country. There are lots of cheap staycations available that would do wonders for your state of mind.
It is always a good idea to get out of the house for a bit and go somewhere different. Just being out of your home and away from your regular routine is a way to treat yourself. We have a couple of staycations planned this year and I am so looking forward to them. Holidays are a necessity and not a luxury.
Being by yourself is a great way to unwind. I love my alone time a lot. Trips to the cinema by myself are amazing. I also love going for walks and shopping alone. The time alone gives me time to relax and think clearly. This is easily done when the kiddies are in school, so I make the most of it then.
How do you treat yourself?
Self care is so important whatever your age and youngsters age. Mine are all grown now. 3 of the 4 have there own families and 1 is still at home. Doesnt look like he is going anywhere re health issues.
I always wondered what I would do when they grew up. The answer is carry on being a mom: just the role changes. It is very true. Helping with Granna duties etc as well as helping them etc means parents are more hands on today even when they are adults, which wasn’t the case in past generations so much.
I have 4 weekly reflexology, once a month full face threading, hairdressers 8 weekly and I always make your for my weekly pamper face mask, and so on. I also di daily meditation and have been for a while now.
It’s so important to have me time I agree
Yes it is so important. Daily meditation and any time alone helps a lot. Thanks Carol.
I feel like I treat myself alot the last couple years, trips abroad monthly, spa trips quarterly, girls meet ups bi-weekly and the list goes on.
Ah lovely! That is so amazing.
I so need to have a massage! I find them so relaxing and I get a lot of back pain so it feel good to relax my back. I think I should book it in regularly!!!
Yes regular massages are good.
