It’s important to look after others, but it’s also important to look after yourself. Life is busy and you work hard; you deserve a treat every now and again. Treats make us feel special and motivate us to keep at it! With this in mind, here are a few ideas to treating yourself.
Take A Holiday For One
There is no need for friends or family to go on holiday! Travelling solo can be just as fun, and in fact, even more fulfilling. If you can, go somewhere you speak the language for extra peace of mind. If not, just pack a local dictionary, or use a translation app. iTranslate is a translator and dictionary that you can get for free. You don’t need to wait for a partner or friend to tick something off your bucket list!
Buy Yourself A Special Piece of Jewellery
Investing a piece of jewellery you really love. Lockets look gorgeous on delicate necklaces or go for a set of stud earrings you will wear daily. Go for the best quality you can afford, to ensure it lasts. Also, the better the quality, the better it will withstand daily washing, showering and housework.
Take A Bubble Bath
When life is super jammed and you need to get to stuff to do quickly, it’s often tempting to just take a quick shower! Instead, take a bubble bath every now and again! Lush bath bombs have become a cult favourite in the last few years.
Go For A Massage
One better than taking a bubble bath, go to a professional for some serious relaxation! Massages and spa treatments don’t have to be super expensive. In fact, you might be able to find some great deals on sites like Groupon. Here you can get deals like 2 for 1, or even discounts of up to 70% off the usual price.

Even if you are big on healthy eating, or are on a diet, treating yourself every so often is still fine. In fact, it might even re-motivate you for the next day. Keep a drawer, box or cupboard in your house with some of your favourite foods and snacks. It doesn’t even have to be stuff that is very bad for you. It could be some salted pistachios, or some flavoured rice cakes, for example!
Go shopping for you!
No, we don’t mean food shopping or kids clothes shopping, or other boring things like that. Go for a shop for you! Buy a new outfit for work, or a bag you’ll use every day. There are lots of ways to save money to reduce any feelings of guilt!
Upgrade your bedroom
If you love to nap, rest or sleep, you should be doing it in a super relaxing space! Make your bedroom the best room in the house. Upgrade your mattress to memory foam. Invest in some new pillows and throw out your old ones. Choose some pretty bedding that makes you go ‘ooh I love this design!’ Put up some cheap fairy lights and add a snuggly blanket. Then you can treat yourself every single night!
