The post today is centering around well-being.
One of the best decisions I’ve ever made for myself was to go on “dates” by myself. I occasionally go to a casual cafe or restaurant and order a drink and yummy food. This is basically the only time I have for myself throughout the day to get work done and or relax!
My life as a student with a job and social life can be very hectic at most times. It’s during a lunch break before class or something I have planned, that I can really just take a breather. 90% of the time I will be making my to-do list or going through what needs to be done for homework, etc.
It wasn’t until the other day that I sat down in a restaurant and told myself I’m just going to read my book. I NEVER have time to read for pleasure! I usually listen to audio books while I drive (which are amazing, don’t get me wrong) but it was something about just reading for no reason but my own choice that made me feel so at peace.
I dislike the stigma that going out alone will make you look lonely or something. When I have that rare time I get to just go out for myself I will take that opportunity in a heart beat!
This routine doesn’t have to be every day or every week – but when you feel like you need a pick me up that will strengthen your well-being – I think this could help!
Overall, I hope you all try it out. It has made such a difference for me this year that I started doing it. Make it a New Years goal to start taking yourself out on dates sometimes. I think you all will be pretty amazed at how refreshed you feel after!
