Let us accept the fact that we all are busy in our lives. No matter whatever we do, we are always doing something and are very engrossed in all the tasks that we don’t get time to spend on ourselves!
Reaching the deadlines, meeting expectations, trying to please our loved ones and everyone surrounding us, life is hard but we have to manage everything on our own!
But being busy should never keep you away from pampering yourself a little! You must take out some time at least to make yourself happy and get yourself back on track by having a free moment.
We know you must be thinking about the expenses, but there are several other ways that can help you get some time for yourself in an affordable and easy way.
That’s the reason Svanah Beauty has come up with some cheap and simple ways to pamper yourself in a day, just because you deserve it!
1. Call a friend to catch up.
Is there someone you haven’t talked to in a while? Put the kids down for a nap (or “quiet time”) and give her a call. Save it for the weekend if you have to and make your husband take the kids out to play for a while. Enjoy a nice, long chat that’s mostly about your friendship, not your kids. Feel happy because you’ve remembered old parts of yourself and gotten a verbal hug from a friend.
2. Have a cup of tea (or coffee).
You might do this every morning, but do you really enjoy it? Set out to enjoy it this time. Choose a nice-flavoured beverage instead of the plain-old usual stuff. Take it to a comfortable spot and just sip it and enjoy it. It’s not about waking up, getting your caffeine fix, or simple hydration. No, it’s about a quiet moment with a soothing, delicious drink. Variation: wait till the kids are in bed and make it an “adult” beverage.
3. Take a warm bath alone.
When was the last time you took any form of bath or shower to pamper yourself? Make the bath warm, add bubble bath soap or herbs to make it fancy, light a candle, turn on some music, bring a book. Or just take a nap. But enjoy your bath
4. Wear a fancy outfit on a regular day.
A lot of us being at home get to the point where they just wear sweatpants and t-shirts all the time. Make-up? Who has time? And fancy clothes seem impractical. Maybe they are, but don’t you feel pretty and happy in them? So choose a day when you’re not going to be making too much mess (read: the day you start the garden or finger painting during playgroup are not good days) to dress in a pretty outfit. Do your hair, put on makeup, wear earrings, you’ll feel happy and confident just knowing that you look good.
5. Buy a treat just for you at the grocery store.
Buy something to eat, just for you. It could be ice cream, or your favourite fancy cheese, or some lox for your Sunday bagels. It doesn’t matter; choose whatever you like the best but never buy for yourself.
6. Watch your favourite show in peace.
Get comfortable, grab your favourite snack, and settle in to watch whatever you love best, alone. And if it’s a love story, it might just make you sappy and sighing and excited about how much you love your life and everything around it. That can only be good, right?
