Take Yourself on a Date

Okay, all of you single ladies out there……and not so single ladies.  It’s time to take yourself on a date (sorry fellas), but this post is geared to all of the amazing women out there who need a break and maybe a bit of alone time.  🙂 

Make Some Alone Time and Take Yourself on a Date

We as women spend so much time caring for others, whether it be our spouse, kids, grandkids, parents or employers, that it is time to stop playing tug-of-war and start taking care of the most important person.  Ourselves!  We have to start setting time aside for us.  Whether it be a few hours, a day or even a week, set time aside and take yourself on a date. Alone!  

It is important to make alone time so take yourself on a date and pamper yourself.
Set aside “ME” time at least once a week!

It is so important for us women to take some time out of our busy lives and focus on us. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune (we will keep that for our travels), as long as you carve out some time to spend pampering yourself.  If we don’t take care of ourselves, we sure as heck won’t be any good to anybody else.

Just One Tip: “Nurture yourself, and then proceed in taking care of others”

I know that taking yourself on a date might be a completely new concept to many of you. In fact, I bet most of you might not even know where to begin.  I am a seasoned pro and I have you covered with just a little bit of inspiration!

It is important to care for yourself before caring for others.  Take yourself on a date and blow some steam off at the gym.

Solo Date Ideas

Whether you are single or married and especially if you have children, it is imperative for your mental health to make some “me” time, and what better way to do that than to take yourself on a date?

The date doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, in fact some of my best “dates” haven’t cost me a dime. The idea is to just get out and do something that YOU enjoy, or if you prefer, you can even take yourself on a date while staying at home.

Are you needing some date inspiration?

Do you need some inspiration for solo date ideas, or you don’t know where to begin? You can start with these simple date ideas but the sky is the limited, just be creative.

  • take yourself on a date for a nice dinner
  • stop in for a cocktail at the local pub

  • wander the stores and buy yourself something nice
  • sleep in.….no alarms
  • volunteer
  • explore your hometown like a tourist

Taking yourself on a date is easy and it doesn't have to cost a lot.  Grab your bike or take a hike on a new trail and enjoy nature's therapy.

There you have it ladies!  It’s as easy as that!  If I have over-whelmed you with options, a fun thing to do is to write your date ideas on a piece of paper and then put the paper in a jar.  Pick one date out of the jar at least once a month.

Ultimately it doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you take the time to pamper yourself every once in awhile and take yourself out a date.

If you feel like taking yourself on the ultimate date, pamper yourself with a day at the spa.
