7 Ways to Spend a Day by Yourself ...

By Merarri

If you are looking for a few great ways to spend a day by yourself, I’m here to help. I strongly feel that every girl should have a Me-Day, which is a day where you get away from your typical daily grind and only do things that you enjoy. So depending on your personality, there are many awesome ways to spend a day by yourself.

1 Pamper Yourself

Pamper YourselfAfter seeing my best friend glowing after her day at the spa, I knew this should be at the top of my list. When you feel overwhelmed with stress and need to relax, a spa is one of the best ways to spend a day by yourself. Take a mini-vacation from thinking of your problems while you are there. The goal is to stay present and enjoy the moment instead of entertaining a mind full of racing thoughts.

2 Hang out with Wildlife

Hang out with WildlifeSometimes we need a break from emails, text messages, phone calls and social media networks. A nature day is an excellent option when you need to get away from technology for a bit. Get in touch with nature by taking a walk in a park or hit the trails at a nature center. Observe the animals, plants, trees and stones along the way. Listen to the different melodies from nature.

3 Transform a Blank Canvas

Transform a Blank CanvasChoose a an artistic media that you have never tried before and create a picture that you can hang. Try experimenting with different media such as charcoals, pastels, paint or ink. Or create a collage by cutting out items from magazines, scrapbooking paper, photographs or postcards. Allow your creativity to flow and you may be amazed at what you can create.

4 Grab Your Favorite Book

Grab Your Favorite BookYou know that book that you have been meaning to read but have been putting it off? Yeah that one. Wrap yourself in the most comfortable blanket you can find and read that book. An awesome way to spend the day is settling in with a good book and getting lost in its pages.

5 Give New Life to Old Furniture

Give New Life to Old FurnitureLook around your place for pieces of furniture that have chipped or fading paint. Some possible makeover candidates include lamps, dressers, tables and shelves. An easy way to transform old furniture is to use a contrasting paint color to create designs. Painting designs like polkadots, swirls and hearts is a fun way to embellish furniture.

6 Movie Marathon

Movie MarathonOne of my favorite ways to spend a Me-Day is to escape in a movie marathon. Check out the latest titles in your local movie theater or camp out at home with a few rentals. I have found the perfect addition to this day is popcorn, theater candy and a soft comfortable pair of pj's even at the theater. Shutting off all forms of communication with the outside world is highly recommended so you aren't disturbed.

7 Catch up on Sleep

Catch up on SleepMany of us run around completely sleep deprived. Not getting enough sleep may seem harmless but its detrimental to your health. If you feel tired all the time and have a lack of energy, sleep deprivation could be to blame. So try shutting off the alarm clock and sleep in for the day because it can do wonders for rejuvenating your body and mind.

These are just a couple of choices that can help you enjoy your day off. Ladies what are your favorite ways to spend a day by yourself?
