Thanks to modern life, it’s easy to get stuck into the same old cycle of eat, work, sleep, repeat. And with other responsibilities thrown in for good measure, there’s barely enough time to catch our breath or even treat ourselves.
So, this new year, why not make the pledge to put yourself first for a change? Spoiling yourself regularly doesn’t have to be an expensive affair, it can be something as simple as having an uninterrupted bath or watching your favourite movie for the 100th time. Treating ourselves and regularly indulging our likes and hobbies is good for our mental health and our overall happiness. So, spoiling yourself is actually good for you.
Looking for a little inspiration? Read on for 5 ways you can spoil yourself this year.
Update your makeup bag
We all want to have the luxury of a flawless complexion and good makeup to boot. However, with so many other things to prioritise, it’s easy to fall into the same old makeup routine and stick to the same old products, even if they’re not giving us the results we want. Spoil yourself this year by updating your makeup bag – get a step closer to that flawless complexion with this La Roche-Posay Uvidea BB Cream. You can be daring with a new lip colour, try out liquid eyeliner flicks, all the while improving your creative skills – and who doesn’t love trying out the new colours in an eyeshadow palette? Go on, you deserve it.
Plan a trip
Is there somewhere you’ve always wanted to go? From Paris to a city in your home country, you could spoil yourself by injecting a little culture and excitement into your life this year, with a trip to a destination of your choice. It doesn’t have to be a full-blown holiday, just a well-planned day trip or potential overnight stay. Plan every last detail, from your hotel suite to where you’re going to eat. Go with friends or take the ultimate adventure and push yourself out of your comfort zone.
Social media, apps, text messages, emails and phone calls. Spoil yourself by turning off your phone and putting your digital life on hold for a while. Re-engage with those around you or enjoy your own company and read a book instead. Switching off from our phones is proven to reduce stress and help us sleep better, so you should probably treat yourself to a digital purge more often!
Buy new underwear
From lacey numbers to comfy girl-boxers, treating yourself to a set of new underwear that makes you feel good is the perfect way to spoil yourself. Sure, your partner may approve of your decision to treat yourself, but it’s important to choose something that is for you and something that makes you feel good. Sexy or comfy – new underwear is always great!
Take the day off
There’s something extra fun about taking a day off when you know everyone else is working. Take full advantage of the empty gym, or the shops and head to those places you don’t usually get to explore on the weekend.
