Treat Yourself in February

After all the pampering you’ve given your loved one for Valentine’s Day last week, don’t forget yourself! Treat yourself in your Azure Villas apartment or elsewhere in Pembroke Pines, FL. Try or get inspired by these ideas this month.

Head to the kitchen (or the restaurant).

A hearty meal or a sweet dessert can lift your spirits and rejuvenate your body after a long day. Try that dish you’ve been wanting to try. Share it with a loved one to show off your masterpiece. Or simply relish it with your favorite movie.

A break from cooking can also refresh your spirits. If you’ve never dined out alone, try it this month at that fancy restaurant you’ve been imagining yourself at. Or bring a loved one to enjoy good food with.

Up your skincare routine.

Cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your skin can not only prevent problems in your skin, but they also aid in waking you up and helping you feel refreshed and ready for a productive day or a night of peaceful rest. Do a face mask, wear a gel bead sleep mask, or even deep condition your scalp. You’ll be surprised at how alive it helps you feel!

Cultivate a hobby.

The hours in the day all too easily slip away from us. Make time for the things you love doing this month. Play your favorite instrument. Go to the library or your favorite bookstore and read or buy yourself a new book. Work on your art — your passion. Bask in the joy it brings you and note your strengths and skills.

Update your closet.

Give yourself just enough retail therapy this month to help you feel excited about the things in your closet. Donate or sell gently used items you no longer wear. It may feel like a chore, but opening up space will help you feel all the more confident in indulging in a new outfit. Go thrift shopping to support local businesses and to go a little easier on the wallet and the earth.
