You deserve to treat yourself all year round but especially this summer! Summer craziness gets us all. Events pop up nearly every weekend, the weather is perfect for outdoor projects, and school is out for the masses. Fear of missing out tends to keep us busy, but we get burned out. So to encourage you to take care of yourself, here are three reasons you deserve some me-time this summer.
You'll Be More Productive
If you associate your lifestyle with "go, go, go!" all of the time, you might be lacking the motivation to keep up the crazy pace. Whether it's work, hobbies, or social time, always having your calendar full can mean you don't have the energy to put toward the things you want. Add a night for yourself to your calendar ahead of time so that nothing else can fill up that space. Knowing it's there waiting for you will help you power through that busy schedule because rest is just around the corner.
It's Not Selfish
Taking time for yourself is essential, especially if you're a parent or caregiver. To give your best to others, you need to take care of yourself first. There are many good ways to do that through healthy habits, but people often overlook spending time alone. Sometimes you just need a night to rest, run a bubble bath, watch a movie, and treat yourself to some macarons. If you feel more energized by adventure, take yourself on a new hiking trail or try out some restaurants solo and stop by Nikkolette's food truck for dessert.
You'll Love Yourself More
By taking time to pamper yourself, you're practicing self-love. People who practice self-love often feel more confident, more attractive, and more satisfied with their lives. So embrace slowing down for a night to practice some self-love, relax, and wake up the next day feeling refreshed and happier with yourself.
Nothing helps you focus on enjoying yourself more than something sweet to savor. Join our Macaron of the Month Club! We’ll send you a box of macarons every month so you always have a tasty to reminder you to pamper yourself.
