Oh what we wouldn’t do to have an extra hour or two during the day for some “me time.” It’s sometimes hard to make myself the top priority when I have an endless amount of work to do; but, I find ways to carve that time out of my day. Whether it’s reading a magazine or treating myself to a manicure, I always give myself some “me time” because taking care of ourselves is an important part of living a full life.
Here are 3 fun ways you can enjoy some “me time.”
1. Go on a Shopping Trip
When you shop alone, you have more time to roam around the stores and you can take your sweet time trying on 10 different pairs of shoes to find that perfect pair – something your friends would probably hate to sit through.
Fall is just around the corner, so I started putting together my own fall shopping list to stock up early on all the basics and fall must-haves. I get a lot of my fall fashion inspiration flipping through magazines so I headed to Vons and picked up the September issue of InStyle (and People magazine for leisure time). InStyle is usually my go-to because they always share all the newest fall fashion trends.
2. Do Absolutely Nothing
It’s the best time of the day because you finally have some “me time.” There’s no need to leave the house either. I like to curl up in bed with a cup of tea, and a snack, while reading a few of my favorite celeb magazines like People.
3. Head to the Gym
Alone time is often necessary – especially when you’re upset or stressed out from work. When I need a good release, I head to the gym. When I’m there, I’ll use anything to distract me like listening to music or reading a magazine while on the treadmill. Reading and listening to music while exercising really helps me stay motivated and keeps me coming back.
