Want to take yourself on a solo date? Enjoy one of these 18 awesome things to do by yourself! #TeamYou
Me Time wasn’t in my vocabulary until after having kids. Really, before kids life is just one big giant Me Time Party in a way. When we begin taking care of someone else, we have to make sure we are taking care of ourselves first. If we aren’t, we can’t fully take care of another person. Keeping a mental list of things to do by yourself can help you recharge if needed.
18 Awesome Things to Do By Yourself
I firmly believe that Me Time is something all parents need. We are needed 24/7 by amazingly adorable children. But sometimes, we need a break. If you need some things to do for me time, here are 18 Awesome Things To Do By Yourself!
#1 Go to a movie
#2 Go out to eat – Psssst, Happy Hour and patios aren’t meant to only be enjoyed by parties of 2 or more.
#3 Get a massage
#4 Binge watch a TV show – If you need some ideas, check out these Netflix Originals I Couldn’t Stop Watching!
#5 Read a book
#6 Head to the mall and people watch – I don’t care if you judge me or not, people watching can really lift your spirits.
#7 Take in a free concert near you
#8 Take advantage of a free trial at a local gym – One of your gyms also has massages chairs so I can kill two awesome things to do by yourself with one stone!
#9 Take a Hike – This is one of my favorite things to do alone when I need to clear my mind and find balance.
#10 Soak in a bubble bath with a glass of wine
#11 Visit a museum
#12 Take a day trip somewhere close
#13 Take a class to learn something new – Taking a kickboxing class after I dropped the kids off at school was one of the best and most rewarding things I did for myself.
#14 Go Shopping in only dollar sections
#15 Pamper yourself with a mani and/or pedi
#16 Take a scenic drive
#17 Take your camera and go on a photo adventure
#18 Sit on the shore of the ocean, river, or lake, and just be – I did this the other day at the lake by my work, with a slice of gas station pizza. Watching the ripple of the water and the families of geese hunting for food was just what I needed that day.
