Mental Health Day

Posted on: May 14, 2009

I’m a firm believer in pampering oneself. Or rather, myself. There’s nothing better than treating yourself – maybe some shopping, maybe a pedicure (which might be a good idea, now that I think about it…), even just a trip to get ice cream feels like a treat to me. But when you get to combine all those things to make for a spectacular day… that’s just fabulous.

Granted, I can very rarely afford to do that but today I got to do some of it – I had one more day of paid time off to use and decided to use it to take care of some errands.. then after that I got to relax on the couch, enjoying a Sex & the City marathon, and this was after sleeping in. And PF Changs (as pictured, I adore their dumplings) was the icing on the cake of a pretty good day.

Now I feel refreshed and ready to tackle the last 3 weeks of school.

So… how do you like to pamper yourself? What’s your idea of “a treat”?

Getting Starbucks. It’s so rarely in the budget anymore since I’ve been out of work. But I still treat myself once in a while.

Getting fish & chips while watching X files or some stand up comedy show is always good đŸ™‚

I think of a lot of things at relaxing or pampering. As the other poster suggested, Starbucks is always a relaxing treat! So are mani/pedis, and yoga for me.

I also firmly believe in the mental health day. Glad you were able to enjoy yours!
