There are numerous ways to pamper oneself at home, including listening to relaxing music, watching an entertaining TV show, or sitting near a warm fire while reading an enjoyable book. Warm baths and spa treatments are other ways to pamper oneself and relieve built-up stress.
Additional ways to pamper oneself include calling up an old friend to catch up or have some hearty laughs, treating oneself to the movies or dinner, going shopping, visiting a coffee shop to read a book, or going for a relaxing bike ride. Taking some time to do absolutely nothing unapologetically is also a viable way to feel pampered.
With hectic work and home schedules, many people believe they don't have time to pamper themselves. Taking time to relax and unwind is necessary as a stress-management practice. Individuals can choose to devote 15 minutes or several hours to pampering themselves, as long as they allocate time in their schedules to do so.
Busy moms and dads should ask their spouses or friends to cover for them while they take some time for themselves. If this option isn't available, individuals in dire need of indulging in stress-relieving activities can pencil in the time to do so while the kids are in school, at day care or involved in extracurricular hobbies.
