I’ve mentioned on several occasions that I’m following a strict budget and as such, it can become difficult to find ways to treat myself that don’t totally break the bank. I may have treated myself to yoga which was quite the expense, but there are other ways we can treat ourselves that don’t require a lot of money.
5 Ways To Treat Yourself When Living On A Budget
1. Buy a Coffee
While I make coffee at home every day, every once and awhile, buying a coffee is a treat. When you only do it from time to time, it feels special and isn’t expensive.
I don’t mean a year-long yoga membership, I mean rolling your mat out in the living room and spending 20 minutes for yourself.
3. Light a Candle
This may not sound like much but lighting a candle is one of the most relaxing things I can do for myself. It’s simple and it helps me relax and remember to breathe.
4. At-home mani/pedi
While it’s nice to go to a salon and have someone pamper you by doing your nails, doing them at home can be just as fulfilling. Maybe even call your best girlfriend to come over and paint each others nails or just hang out as you do your own.
5. Read a book
I get this may not seem like a treat but I assure you that it is! When you find that book that really pulls you in, every moment reading it is a moment of happiness and enjoyment.
It’s important for us to treat ourselves every now and again, regardless if we’re living on a budget or not.
