Whether you’re single or in a relationship, we all need time for ourselves. One of the things that I learned before getting into a relationship is that you need to get used to taking time out to take you on a date, and make the time for yourself to do so. For me, it’s the ultimate form of self care.
Now, it’s not as fancy as I’m trying to make it sound. It can be a variety of things. That said, here are some great ways to take time out for you.
- Go out for a mani/pedi: This might be hard to do during the current pandemic, but getting your nails done is the ultimate way to relax and make time for you.
- Go to an event that you enjoy: Sometimes, there are events that you can’t find someone to go with you, whether it’s because no one is free or because they aren’t interested. However, instead of not going, why not go by yourself? I have gone to so many book signings by myself and it honestly is the best. It puts you in the best mood because you are doing something you enjoy, and you may just meet some cool people.
- Grab a coffee: Prior to COVID, I would bring my e-reader to a coffee shop and sit and read. Now, I make a latte with my Nespresso. Whatever the case may be, grab a coffee and just chill.
- Go shopping: Every now and then, we all can use a solo shopping trip — whether it’s from Target or to the mall. Therefore, why not make it a day? Get some lunch. Grab a Starbucks drink. Whatever the case may be, just going out and treating yourself is honestly the best.
