How to Pamper Yourself on Mother’s Day and Everyday!

MothersMost mothers, I’m sure, expect to be pampered, wined, dined and treated extra special on Mother’s Day.

I don’t expect that this Mother’s Day will be any different for a lot of us.

But whether you are a mother or not, or have someone to indulge you, there’s no reason why you can’t take the time to pamper yourself on Mother’s Day and everyday by indulging in a little self-care. Any day is a good day to treat yourself to some pampering.

You deserve it!

So, in preparation for your designated day of pampering, here are some ideas to get you on your way:

  • Spend the day with nothing more on your agenda but YOU. Relax and do only the things you enjoy – no cleaning, cooking or other household chores!
  • Schedule a manicure, facial, pedicure or massage. Let someone else pamper you while you just relax and enjoy. Doing so will free you up to do more enjoyable things.
  • Take an afternoon nap, wake refreshed and then put your feet up and relax some more, perhaps, with a mesmerizing novel or movie.
  • Treat yourself to a delicious meal at your favorite restaurant. If you’re shy about eating alone, entertain yourself by making up amusing stories about the other diners, catch up on your reading or write in your journal.
  • Take some time to reconnect with an old friend to reminisce, laugh and revisit pleasant memories.
  • Light a lavender candle or spray a lavender scented mist in the air for a calming and uplifting effect.
  • Do something fun. Take in a comical move, enjoy a leisurely stroll around your neighborhood or local park or spend the day at the beach catching up on your reading. It’s not an indulgence to do fun, playful things. In fact, fun activities are good for your emotional and mental health.

Whether you decide to spend Mother’s Day pampering yourself with a little self-care or make your self-care a priority another time of your choosing, remember, we all need our body, mind and spirit nurtured, pampered and loved on a regular basis.
