For sure we don’t indulge ourselves enough. With work, kids, projects, spouses, friends when can we find the right time for a little self Love and self-indulgence, most times never. I implore you to ensure that you find the time at least once per month to do so. Sometimes we are just a little behind and need a push, for that, I have designed 21 Day Self Love Challenge that you can do right here. Until then, take a look at some really easy ways you can indulge yourself.

20 Easy Ways to Indulge Yourself

  1. Give yourself the gift of five minutes of doing nothing. Sometimes this is enough to get a bit of breathing room and plan your next move.
  2. Give yourself permission to reach out to someone else. Text or call a friend or relative who you know will support you.
  3. Make a healthy snack or drink and enjoy it slowly. Take pleasure in nurturing yourself.
  4. Give yourself a manicure or pedicure.
  5. Make a plan for the weekend, thus ensuring you have something to look forward to.Indulge yourself
  6. Set a timer and tidy up your workspace for ten minutes. This doesn’t sound like much fun, but giving yourself the gift of a clear desk is not to be underestimated!
  7. Go for a brief walk outside. Natural green shades are soothing, and if the weather is sunny, this will also provide you with a mood boost.
  8. Go to an animal shelter or pet store and look at the cute animals. There’s something relaxing about watching them play or sleep together in a happy snuggly heap.
  9. Get out a notebook and pen and start journaling. Let yourself express hopes, fears, desires and dreams. This can be very cathartic and healing.
  10. Read an interesting and uplifting blog article for free inspiration within minutes!relax and indulge yourself
  11. Head to the library or second-hand book store for some free or cheap books. Grab anything that looks amusing, entertaining or inspirational.
  12. Ask a friend for a TV show or movie recommendation. Bonus points if you can borrow it from them for free! You could even suggest a movie night, complete with drinks and popcorn.
  13. Buy a seriously decadent treat, like a bar of your favourite chocolate, and savour it.
  14. Pretend to be a tourist in your local area. Leave your everyday cares behind and walk around the park, museums etc. as though it’s the first time you have ever visited.
  15. Have an early night, just because you feel like it. Put off the chores until tomorrow, and just get into bed with a good book or film. We all deserve that from time to time.
  16. Give yourself the gift of taking your dreams seriously. Write down five key life goals that you want to achieve over the next year or so, and the steps needed to achieve them.
  17. Take a nap. So many of us are sleep-deprived, so 20 minutes spent napping in the afternoon may be just the refreshment you need.
  18. Make yourself an uplifting playlist containing all your favourite songs, and listen to it several times.
  19. Avoid toxic influences. Do you suspect that a certain co-worker, relative or even ‘friend’ just depresses you or gets you down with their negative attitude? Try to spend less time with them.
  20. The next time someone asks you to do something non-essential that you don’t want to do, vow to look after yourself and say ‘No.’
  21. Buy your favourite flavour of ice-cream on your way home from work and spend a couple of hours indulging in dessert and trashy TV.
  22. Treat yourself to a few compliments – from yourself!
  23. Get rid of any clothing that doesn’t fit or flatter you, and go shopping for replacements.
