For some, having a rest day means one thing: Staying in bed for as long as possible. It may seem like it’s truly what you need, but why not make your day more meaningful? Even if at the end of it you’re tired, the sense of fulfillment should make it worth it.
Here are some things you can do on your free day:
Feel Like a Princess
There is no better way to spend the day than by getting pampered in a St. Petersburg day spa. Marilyn Monroe Spas recommends trying a new hairstyle, choosing a bold nail polish at the end of a manicure, or going for a massage session while thinking about where you want to have dinner. Go to your favorite spot and forget about your calories and worries for a day.
You don’t need to be a celebrity or have millions to donate to charity. A small act of kindness, such as packing a sandwich to give to the homeless, will go a long way in feeling good about yourself. If you don’t have the time to pack a meal, take a homeless person out for lunch and listen to their story. You’ll feel grateful for your own life after such a conversation, and your perspective on what truly matters will change.
Makeover the House
You can’t carry out a full renovation in a day. Not even experts can do that. You can, however, redecorate or declutter. Sometimes, adding more will not make a big difference, but going with less gives you more space and makes the room feel less cramped. Changing the wallpapers or curtains also go a long way. You can even repaint a room in a day.
The 24 hours you have can be put to good use if you find meaningful activities. These are just some ideas to get you started.
