Important Things #10 ~ Pamper Yourself
Well okay, if I must! But only because it’s for my blog! 😛
Happiness is created inside of yourself. You need to first take care of yourself, and every once in a while allow yourself the privilege and leeway to pamper yourself. You deserve it!!
Pampering yourself doesn’t have to be extravagant, expensive, or even take up a lot of time. It can be as simple as a hot bubble bath, stopping by that store you’ve been wishing to and taking an extra 10 minutes to window shop and wish upon a star for that amazing outfit (maybe even trying it on), or spending the $10 to have your eyebrows waxed instead of having to pluck them all on your own. Okay, men… I realized that my list in that previous sentence was aimed at us ladies. So for you guys, take 10 minutes to just relax in the evening all by yourself… sit in your favorite chair and just chill with no noise or distractions (ah sweet silence)… it’s okay to want that sometimes! Go a little out of your way on your drive home from work and give yourself the freedom to look at that new car or motorcycle that you have been drooling over (maybe go for a test drive), even if you will not be getting it anytime soon, we all need goals to shoot for! There are so many things that can go onto this list of regret free ways to give to yourself little by little.
Never underestimate how deeply the simple pleasures in life will impact your mood, your spirit, your well-being. Life is made up of moments, so why not create a few moments just for yourself. Your happiness is worth it because when you are happy then you are healthier, more confident, more energetic, have less stress bogging you down, and are a better person to others around you. This is a “win-win” for everyone! If you are the type of person who feels guilty even giving yourself 5 minutes to sit down, then remember this: to pamper yourself is really for the good of those around you!
QUESTION: Do you feel guilty pampering yourself at all?
CHALLENGE: You deserve it, and those around you deserve you to be happy so that you can be a better person for and to them… so do not wait even until tomorrow. Find a way, any way, to pamper yourself TODAY! And tell me how you did it! Share your ideas with us all!!! 🙂
