Todays piece of advice is: Realize that you can treat yourself without breaking the bank.
Self-care is hard when you’re on a budget, trust me I know. But sometimes the problem isn’t that we can’t afford it, it’s that sometimes we don’t think we deserve it or we forget about ourselves because we’re worrying about others.
When I’m in the store I always say to myself, “No you don’t need that…just save your money“. And maybe its true that I don’t absolutely NEED that item but sometimes it’s okay to get yourself a little something. As long as you’re not breaking the bank, make sure you treat yourself. If you’re one of those people that are always buying things for other people and never buying yourself anything you need to make a change ASAP.
And another thing, do something for yourself not only when you’re upset but also when you’re happy. I mean, have you seen that video of the lady with the mask yet? It doesn’t have to be expensive (but it can be if you can afford it). Get a massage on groupon, buy yourself those cufflinks you’ve been eyeing (for 3 months), get yourself that $2 chocolate dipped ice-cream cone.
Go ahead, do something that makes YOU happy!
