3. Painting With A Twist- The Twist Is No Pants Necessary
There are few things as relaxing as Bob Ross telling you everything’s going to be okay as he paints a tranquil forest of love and lush; so get your paint brushes out and paint the stress away. Painting has a way of helping you zone out from the noise that constantly surrounds you. Getting a canvas and some paint can allow you to create your own safe space and give you a piece of work to marvel at later.
And remember, no such as thing as mistakes, just happy accidents.
4. Netflix And Actually Chill
A Netflix and Chill session where you what? Actually watch the movie? Insanity. When you finally have the time to treat yo’self cue up Netflix and dive into that series about grade A chef’s and their masterful creations or that movie about the zombie fighting vampire!
Sometimes all the heart needed was a nice night of being cocooned up on the sofa with a commercial-less streaming service. Honestly, heaven on earth.
5. Eat, Cray, Love
You don’t need a date or a special reason to treat yo’self to a meal that will make you marvel at its decadent flavors, and even better one you put all your love and time into. Find a recipe online that speaks to your soul, get your ingredients, put on your favorite playlist and create your own episode of Chef’s Table.
Pair it with your favorite wine and transport yourself to the hills of Tuscany where your boss doesn’t exists and Paolo is waiting for you with gelato. Hmmm… a girl can dream.
6. Check Out And Check In
Sometimes the best way to treat yo’self is to check in with yo’self; I know, I know, sounds cheesy but your mental health is extremely vital to your overall well being. Think of it as a maintenance check-up on your car, if the tank is empty and the check engine light is on then you’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
So just like you would with your car take this time to see what needs a lil’ TLC; could be your brain or maybe your heart- whatever it is, cry it out, laugh it out because you just can’t zone it out. The glow starts from inside!
