Happy Election Day! We are out of school but I have a packed day with voting early at the polls, our first college visit, driver’s permit test, and theater for one son.
So, Friday was my birthday and that was the inspiration for this post. But, I got to thinking that you shouldn’t necessarily wait until your next birthday to have a “me” day. If you just need a day you should take it!
There’s something different about being off on a weekday. When my kids were little I would take a day once a year guilt free when they were in school. I really believe your mental health is so important.
I highly recommend taking off on your birthday if you can. I planned this a long time ago. It’s not that I don’t love my job, but like I said, take off on your birthday if you can.
Plan some kind of beauty treatment. I got my hair cut and colored for the first time since last April. It could be a 10 minute neck massage, a mani, a pedi, or just a department store makeover.
Sign up for and take advantage of birthday coupons from favorite stores. Kellyann of thisblondesshoppingbag.com spent her birthday scooping up her deals! I didn’t do as well as she did, but I got a few. I’m mad I didn’t get my Nothing Bundt Cake offer! Maybe I lost it in my junk mail.
One of mine was from local Apricot Lane boutique. They give you a 25%off coupon and I got this leopard kimono.
We recently got a Kendra Scott store. This is my 50% off piece. I got this necklace for $42. I used money my parents gifted me. I think I heard about this from Lisa at Coast to Coast blog here.www.coasttocoast2.com
Treat yourself to a special drink, breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
It was a day that made me feel special and recharged my batteries. That is, until my husband called and decided it would be a great day for him to get new tires put on his vehicle and could I pick him up…
What do you like to do on your birthday or mental health day?
