There are always those times in our lives when things get hectic. Especially during the summer when work gets crazy and you have one too many barbeques to go to. You just can’t seem to catch a break and it feels like everyone is counting on you. Ever felt like this? I think it happens to all of us.
Sometimes all you need is a little ‘you’ time. A little time to do something for yourself that makes you happy. With all of the craziness life throws at us, it is easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. We all deserve to be happy, so here are just a few ideas of things to do to help make you feel good:
1. Brighten up your day
I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for flowers. There is something about the simple beauty and wonderful smell of flowers that always puts a smile on my face. So whenever you’re feeling down and worn out go out and buy yourself the prettiest flowers you can find to brighten up your day!
2. Retail therapy
What makes you happier than finding a GREAT piece of clothing and not spending your weeks allowance on it? Not too much, right? In my opinion, going out and spending tons of money buying things because I’m stressed out doesn’t end up making me feel much better. It only leads to me later worrying about all that money I just spent. It’s going out and finding that great deal on an amazing piece of clothing or pair of shoes that makes me happy.
Although many people don’t like to exercise or view it as a tiresome activity, it can actually be quite rewarding. Instead of running 3 miles as fast as you can, try something less intense. Go for a walk around the city and people watch, ride your bike through a park and just enjoy the nature or go to a yoga class and surround yourself with relaxed people.
4. Pamper yourself
Sometimes all we need is a little pampering. Go to your favorite salon and get your nails done, get a new haircut or even go for a wax. Verve 36o salon has the best brazilian wax Pittsburgh has to offer along with many other great services such as massages and facials that won’t disappoint you!
So don’t forget to take a break and be happy!
