It’s Pamper Yourself Time: 8 Tips Busy Women Can Use

" It's Pamper Yourself Time"If you are among those women who work relentlessly without taking a break, you’ve come to the right place!

You obviously know that you’re not doing yourself any good by not taking care of yourself. Everyone needs a break every once in a while and you deserve breaks the most because you work hard to keep things running smooth.

And taking a break doesn’t always have to mean going away into the hills for weeks. So if you think that you can’t take a break because you just don’t have the time, you need to know what you can do to unwind from your daily hassles.

Here are some things you can do that won’t take up too much of your time but will revitalize you.

Take Your Time in the Bath

If you follow a hectic schedule day in and day out, probably you don’t get enough time to relax in the bath. Nothing can beat a long hot bath when it comes to relieving stress. A hot bath can also boost your mood, induce sleep, and relax your achy muscles.

Taking a hot bath means simply sitting back and relaxing. Do play your favorite music and light scented candles to make the most of your bath. Use essential oils in your bath to help you de-stress or feel refreshed.

Get a Manicure and a Pedicure

Running about and taking care of your loved ones can take its toll on your hands and feet. It’s difficult to think about dealing with dry skin, cracked heels, and broken finger nails and toe nails on regular days when you have so much to do. So get them done when you have time to spare.

Head off to a salon and sit back with your eyes closed while your hands and feet are taken care of by a professional. The whole thing won’t take more than an hour or two, and when you’re done, you’ll have gorgeous hands and feet to admire!

And a Facial Massage Too

Everyday stress can show on your skin in no time. You don’t want to be rewarded with fine lines, wrinkles, and acne for taking more care of the people around you than yourself.

Facial treatments and massages help deep clean your skin by removing dirt, grime, and dead skin cells. They also control sebum production, the excess of which can cause blackheads and acne.

A massage will help improve circulation and increase the flow of blood to the skin cells. This will give your skin a healthy glow and plump it, thereby reducing the appearance of wrinkles. And lastly, a facial massage will feel very relaxing.

Visit a Spa

If a facial massage can do you so much good, imagine what a full body massage can do! If possible, choose a spa that also has a sauna or a steam room. Saunas and steam rooms open up pores, and increase lymphatic and blood circulation. Furthermore, saunas can benefit people suffering from arthritis and migraines, and steam rooms can help those with bronchitis and asthma.

Just get in touch with a day spa and book your appointment for the most luxurious treatments and massages. Having someone fuss over you and take care of you will feel like a welcome change!


Meditation allows you to connect with your thoughts and feelings. It helps you reduce stress and anxiety, gives you peace of mind, decreases muscle tension, and lowers blood pressure.

Spend some time alone in the morning or evening when you can and meditate for a few minutes. It will definitely help.

Buy Something New

It can be a lipstick or a nail polish in a color that you’ve wanted to buy since quite some time. Buying new make-up or expensive moisturizers, lotions, or bath oils is sure to make you happy. You might even want to get yourself a trendy haircut!

If you love jewelry, consider buying a statement necklace or ring that you can flaunt. For a real treat, splurge on gold jewelry. If you already own gold but don’t wear it because it’s old fashioned, now is a good time to sell your gold and buy something that’s trendy.

Or you could simply go shopping for clothes, shoes, or handbags! But be sure you don’t resort to shopping for everyday items that your family needs. And no grocery shopping either; this shopping trip has to be all about you.

Dress to Kill

You probably spend most of your time in sweatpants or clothing that will help you get all your chores finished comfortably. Pamper yourself by wearing the clothes you love whenever you have to step out of the house.

Don’t forget to put on make-up and look glamorous. If you don’t have the time, just use mascara, eye liner, and lipstick.

And lastly,

Do What You Love

Needless to say, this should be your priority. Whether you want to go for a movie marathon watching your favorite flicks, go out with your friends, spend some alone time in your room doing nothing, read a book, or go on a date, just do it.

Do get enough rest too. Remember that if you don’t care of yourself, you won’t be able to take care of your loved ones as well as you do right now.

So what are you waiting for? Do whatever you can to fit a few of these things into your busy schedule. Daily, weekly, or monthly- decide for yourself and indulge!
