Instead of slaving over a hot stove, or microwave, in my case, treat yourself to dinner, whether it be going out, if you feel up to it – or ordering in! Take the time that you would have spent cooking, and use it to do something that you love to do, a hobby that you enjoy, read a good book, or even take a nice hot bubble bath and light some soothing lavender candles. The point is to find what makes you happy. Find that, hold steadfast to it, and don’t let go. Oh, and enjoy that yummy food!
Binge Your Favorite Shows
If you’re staying in for the night, go ahead and binge watch your favorite television show or movies! Whether it be on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu or whatever! We won’t tell anyone! Movies and television shows can easily distract us, if even only for a short time, and take away our cares. We can shift the focus of our minds off of stress for a little bit and concentrate on what is going on in the telly.
It has been proven many times around that chocolate – most especially dark chocolate has massive health benefits. So, if the doctors say it’s good for you, I say go for it! Pick yourself up some delicious chocolate, and munch on it throughout the day. Chocolate also releases endorphins in the brain that sends signals to make us “feel good,” So go on, get to feeling good!
Get Some Extra Rest
Relaxing and rejuvenating oneself is just as important as anything else. Getting a little bit of extra sleep when you can grab it is a wonderful way to recharge yourself. Sneak in a nap while the kids aren't there! Even if it is just for an hour or two. Wrap yourself up into a fun little blanket burrito and drift off into dreamland. You totally deserve it!
