10 Fantastic Self-date Ideas

chill-1839867_960_720You have heard it said before that everyone is responsible for their own happiness because it is unfair to expect people to make us happy unless we learn how to gratify ourselves first. In a perfect system, our happiness would be other people’s responsibility, but we do not live in a perfect world, do we? So, it is our duty to take charge of our happiness, and everything else will start to fall into place. Part of learning to live happily on your own terms involves spending time alone, without the company or interference of others. On these days, when you have to be alone, here are 10 Fantastic Self-date Ideas that you can try:

  1. Go for a walk or hike- it can be very relaxing to unplug while enjoying nature. Nature can help inspire you in ways you did not know, and it can help clear your mind.
  2. Take a warm bubble bath- You can do this as you indulge in your favorite salts and oils. If you light candles, you can create a perfect atmosphere for a self-date to help you reflect, and obviously get clean.
  3. Go for a movie- To this day, this remains the perfect and most inexpensive idea for a self-date. The experience is not only liberating, but it is also quite pleasant when you do not have to share your snacks or hear other people’s opinions throughout the movie.

  5. Indulge in a nostalgic trip down memory lane- This will involve a bottle of wine and your old album. You will feel much better after the experience.
  6. Spend a night in a resort or hotel- It does not have to be an expensive hotel, it just needs to accommodate your budget.
  7. Dine and wine alone- while at the hotel, make sure that you reserve a table for 1 so that you can enjoy a moment of silence to yourself.
  8. Learn how to do something you have always wanted to do- It could be learning a new language, knitting or making a meal. Your experience will motivate you to do more in your life.
  9. Try Netflix- and just chill.
  10. Pay for a high-end photo shoot- You will thank yourself later, especially if you are in good shape now. It is important to commemorate important stages in life, and this is one way to do it.
