Life can be stressful, so we all need to find ways to treat ourselves once in a while, no matter how much we have in the bank. Whether you’ve had a stressful week at work, chores piling up, or commitments to attend to, take time out to care for yourself.
Explore these six ways to treat yourself without going broke.
Take a Staycation
You don’t have to spend money on hotels and plane tickets to enjoy a vacation—plan a staycation, and explore the city you live in. Do all the things in your hometown that you’ve always meant to do but never had the chance: check out museums, go hiking in a forest preserve, or visit historical sites.
Sleep is essential to keeping our mental health balanced. And if you can’t sleep at night, it’s best to get sleep whenever you can. A nap every so often in the middle of the day might be exactly what you need.
How many times have you thought, “I wish I had time to read”? Take some time at the beginning of the day, during your lunch break, or before bed to read. Revisit an old favorite, or explore the works of a new author.
Try a New Hobby
One of the best ways to treat yourself without going broke is to explore new hobbies that can help you stay motivated throughout the day. Experiment with paints to get in touch with your creative side, or investigate your athletic capability with a new workout!
