Every now and again, we all want to run away from the daily routine and kick-start a journey of indulgence. Looking at the slightly colour-damaged hair to our terribly unkempt toes, we’re all culpable of overlooking ourselves. Add up the daily anxiety, stress and pressure that we’re surrounded with!
If you think of it, it’s not too hard to find or reach luxury…. You don’t even need a deep pocket for that. Here below are some ways to pamper yourself so that you can re-emerge into the regular life.
Spend a day in your PJ’s
Do you wake up to the sound of your ear-splitting alarm every day and wish that you could just remain in bed all day? It could be a Monday morning, or when it’s cold and raining outside. Whenever it is, next time this urge shows up, take a step back to think about it for a minute.
Scratch out your responsibilities for the day, then do it! Laze back a whole day, at home, in your pyjamas. It’s the ultimate way to pamper yourself and it’s free…well, almost!
Sh-sh-shopping, oh yeah!
This one doesn’t need an explanation, even if you’re a man! Let’s face it, there’s nothing, nothing more decadent than devoting an entire day to a shopping blitz.
It doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune or all your money on it. Go on a bargain hunt, and set a rule not to buy any ‘everyday items’. This means no razor, no toilet paper or groceries.
Go for makeup, shoes, handbags, shoes, glitzy tops, handbags and some more shoes…
Give yourself a foot massage
Are you in your small bubble feeling relaxed and soft? Focus on the part that you tend to give the least amount of attention – your feet.
You’ve surely heard of the ancient alternative therapy called Reflexology. It’s believed to help you heal your mind and body. The core methodology is that each area of your foot relates to a particular body part. You can positively impact the rest of your body by massaging your feet.
Have a DIY beauty day
A day at the spa is something we never say no to. But it’s not always that we can afford a legit spa day. So why not use your money in a DIY beauty day in its place? Just pick up a new facial product, a hair treatment and a new shade of OPI polish.
Invite some of your friends over to enjoy, or watch some DVDs to keep you company. Make use of things that are already available at home, such as nail clippers, pots, moisturising cream and nail files.
