Has anyone else felt like days are extra long and that you’re running on fumes? You’re not alone. Personally, I’ve noticed that I tend to feel my lowest when I neglect quality time to myself. It’s so easy to put self-care on the back burner when life gets a bit hectic, but I’m here to remind you that carving out alone time is the key to feeling like your best self. I truly can’t think of a better way to show yourself some TLC than partaking in a solo self-care date night—and chances are, you’re long overdue.
The older you get, the more you realize how important it is to do something for yourself (no matter how small). Similarly to how you have to prioritize intentionally dating your partner every day, you need to make time to date yourself. This means setting aside time to decompress from everyday stressors in order to replenish your energy and relax your mind and body. This can take form in various ways, such as going to a workout class, watching your favorite movie, taking a solo trip to Target, or even doing your skincare (a personal favorite). In case no one has told you this recently—You deserve all the alone time and space needed to fill your cup.
One of the easiest ways to squeeze in some self-care is by planning a solo night in. After all, there’s no better feeling than unwinding after a long day in the comfort of your own home. From the coziest loungewear to fun things to do, we’ve compiled a list of everything you’ll need to have the ultimate solo self-care date night. Here’s to prioritizing your overall well-being and making the conscious effort to do the little things that make you feel like the best version of yourself!
