Going out on dates with your partner or meeting your friends over a cup of coffee are the easiest and the most frequent ways of unwinding and spending a quality time. However, have you ever thought of going out on a date with yourself? Because why not? Dates are meant for special people and who can be more special to you than yourself?
If this sound absurd to you, believe it or not self-date is a great way to spend quality time with yourself and have different experiences. You will not only get to unwind and relax but will also learn to know yourself better. And it’s these self-experiences that become part of your core memory as these are the way to discover and explore ourselves.
Here are some ideas on how you can take yourself out on a date:
Food is always a way to the heart
We are all secretly or not so secretly a foodie. If anyone buys your favorite food, you instantly connect to them. So, why not connect with yourself when you buy a treat for yourself from snacks to meals to desserts. Create a vibe that relaxes you and have a great meal. Fix yourself a drink and play your favorite music while you have a romantic date with you!
New you is the favorite you
Nothing can be a better date than taking yourself out and getting a makeover. It’s like a modification in you that makes you feel different and more in touch with yourself. Getting a haircut, changing your nails, a day well spent in the spa or even going shopping; are some ways to find your favorite new you. It’s also about doing something that you wouldn’t normally do, a discovery.
Meditation or Yoga
A couple of hours spent doing yoga or meditation in the most comfortable way that suits you doesn’t just help with improving your health but at the same time, there is a form of mental peace that is associated with this. With the help of meditation, you understand your mind and your sense organs better than ever. With the help of yoga, you understand your body and your breathing better. This is the best way to discover yourself.
Bathroom singing is great too
A bathroom singer and dancer with an imaginary audience? Well, why not turn this singing into a date? You have a whole house to yourself, a much better space for even a bigger audience, isn’t it? So, what’s stopping you from playing music loudly and singing as well as dancing the way you want, with a hairbrush as the mic and killer moves. Trust me, kill it in the charts!!
Take yourself out
Are you the kind of person who loves outdoor activities and is the most fun on a date as well? Then, going on a long drive with yourself, hiking, stargazing, bike riding, a long walk or even running are the best ideas to spend time with yourself and connect with the inner you. That’s the kind of excitement and discovery that brings you happiness.
