After the turbulence, turmoil, and utter confusion over the past two years and more due to the impact of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, it is highly unlikely that you have had enough free time, and perhaps even free money, to spend on yourself.
With that being said, continue reading to discover four ways to treat yourself without breaking the proverbial bank.
1. Invest in Some Landmark Jewelry
The sheer beauty of investing in a quality and aesthetically beautiful piece of jewelry not only means that you have something you can keep, wear, and cherish for years to come but also something that will remind you of a certain time in your life.
Whether you choose a gorgeous pair of silver or rose plated earrings online, a delicate bracelet, or a chunky statement necklace, it will always remind you of the time when, through the adversity of the pandemic, you came out the other side stronger than before.
2. Take a Beginner’s Meditation Course
If you have never thought about learning the art of meditation, then perhaps a way to treat yourself is to learn the basics, especially if you are someone who periodically experiences lower than ideal levels of mood.
There is a myriad of truly wonderful benefits to practicing meditation, including but not limited to the following:
- The ability to look objectively at a problem or issue in your life
- An increase in self-awareness
- An ability to focus on the present and entirely ‘live in the moment’
- A boost in levels of creativity and enhanced capacity for imagination
- An increase in your levels of tolerance and patience
- A substantial reduction in negative emotions and feelings
3. Invest in a Brand-New Perfume or Cologne
Another great way to feel as if you are finally affording some time, and obviously a little money, on yourself and your levels of happiness and wellbeing is to invest in a new, luxury brand of perfume that you have never tried before.
It is important that you enjoy the scent on your own body and remember that perfumes and colognes always smell different on different people, so the best way to ensure you indulge in a scent that you absolutely adore is to go to the physical store and ask for a variety of samples.
A new scent will feel as if you are drawing a line under any past feelings or incidents that have been plaguing your psyche for a while and allow you to turn over that proverbial leaf.
4. Start a New Evening Class
If you feel as if your life and the routine and schedule in which your daily activities seem to have fallen into over the last few months, or even years, have become mundane, a great way to break out of the feeling of monotony and perpetual groundhog days is to start a new evening class.
Perhaps you have always wanted to learn a new language but have, for some reason, never got round to it, or maybe you have always wanted to learn the piano. Whatever the class, doing something for yourself will result in a renewed vigor for life and may even mean you make new friends in the process.
