With our hectic lives, it’s incredibly easy to forget about treating and spending some time by ourselves. Here are 10 things to do alone for some quality me-time. Go on, you deserve it!
1. Have A DIY Spa Day At Home
You don’t need a step-by-step guide on how to have a DIY spa day at home – it’s simple, fun and a great thing to do alone to relax and unwind. Depending on what treatments you want to indulge in, the bathroom or a bedroom are the best choices for a home spa.
Some things you could do include, drawing a warm bath and adding in bath salts or essential oils, or giving yourself a manicure.
Get the bubble bath sorted, pick your nail polish shade, light the candles and get started! This is a great way to practice self-care.
2. Go Out For A Walk
Of all the things to do mentioned in this list, going out for a walk is one of the easiest things to do alone for some quality me-time. Take some time to go outside and spend time with nature – you’ll instantly feel refreshed and motivated. Spending time outdoors is also great for your mental health and well-being!
3. Try Cooking A New Dish
Spend some time alone and try cooking a new dish, or try out a new recipe you’ve waiting to make. Cooking is a great way to spend some time alone and think of how proud you’ll feel when it’s made and tastes AMAZING! So, dust off your apron and wash your chopping board, it’s time to cook!
4. Clean Your Living Space
Re-organise your life by cleaning your living space. This is also one of the easiest things to do on this list. As much as looking after your mind and soul is great, remember to look after your surroundings.
This will help you feel in control and relaxed in the space where you spend the most time and go to for comfort and relaxation.
5. Call A Friend
In our hectic lives, it’s all too easy to lose contact with our friends. Call a friend when you’re alone to catch up, and instantly put yourself (and your friend) in a good mood!
6. Volunteer In Your Community
One thing to do alone is volunteering in your community. Find a cause that you are interested in and actively join in volunteering activities and events in your local area. Not only will you be helping others, but your self-worth will also improve!
7. Go For A Long Run
Whilst you’re outside, why not go for a long run? You’ll instantly feel great and while you exercise, the body releases endorphins, which leaves you feeling amazing!
There are many things to do alone but meditation is by far one of the most enlightening and relaxing. With meditation apps waiting to be downloaded, it’s never been easier to meditate and unwind!
9. Rearrange Your Wardrobe
Rearrange your wardrobe to tidy up and organise your clothes, shoes, and accessories. Additionally, if there are clothes you no longer like or need, donate them to an organisation of your choice or a local women’s charity.
10. Start Journalling
Start journalling during your alone time to re-connect with yourself and remind yourself of your goals and wishes for the future. Journalling will also unleash your creative side and who knows? You may discover a whole new hobby! This is a great self-care activity.
