10 Reasons You Should Spoil Yourself

We all know life can get busy, and sometimes it can be easy to forget to set aside some “me time” and treat yourself to some well-deserved pampering.

But your friendly Wishart hairdressers are here to remind you that you deserve to spoil yourself from time to time – especially if you haven’t taken some time out for yourself recently! Here are 10 reasons you should spoil yourself...

 

#1 – It’s Healthy to De-Stress

Stress has been linked to all sorts of unhealthy and unpleasant conditions, including anxiety, stroke, heart attacks, rashes, high blood pressure, increased susceptibility to infections, and colds. It stands to reason, then, that if you can lessen the stress you experience by enjoying some relaxing “me time”, you can lessen your chances of experiencing the unpleasant side effects. So for the sake of your health, you deserve to spoil yourself! 

#2 – Relaxation is Good for Your Emotional Health

Have you ever noticed that it can be difficult to think rationally when you’re stressed? By indulging in a relaxing massage, facial, or other special treatment, you can calm down and think straight. This will help you make better decisions at work, at home, and at play.

#3 – You’ll Feel Revitalised

Life can be hard work sometimes, and occasionally it can be difficult to find the drive to tackle the tasks ahead of you. But we all know how much more energy and bounce we have when we feel revitalised! Take some time for yourself to enjoy a beauty or relaxation treatment, and you’ll be able to dive back into the daily grind with renewed energy, ready to tackle any task that comes your way.

#4 – A Change is as Good as a Holiday!

They say that a change is as good as a holiday, and who are we to argue? But a change can cost a whole lot less than a holiday would! Everyone needs the renewing and relaxing benefits of a holiday from time to time, but by treating yourself to a manicure, hair cut, or a new outfit, you can enjoy those benefits at a fraction of the cost of a trip away.

#5 – When you Look Great, you Feel Better

By treating yourself to a haircut, manicure, wax, or other beauty treatment, you’ll not only enjoy the benefits from taking time to relax – you’ll also look great afterwards, too. And when you feel like you look great, you tend to feel better about yourself and about life. What could be more positive than that?

#6 – You Work Hard

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a high-flying corporate, a retail worker, or a stay-at-home mum. Either way, you almost certainly work hard. And everyone who works hard deserves to splash out and spoil themselves!

#7 – It’s Good for the Economy

For the more practical among you, have you considered the fact that treating yourself to some “me time” will be good for the economy? By enjoying a new haircut, a manicure, or something else, you’ll be spending money in your local community, which in turn will boost the local economy. And by taking care of yourself, you’ll be better able to be productive at work – another economic benefit! So whether you’re married to an accountant, or simply like to be practical, this is the excuse to use to take some “me time”.

#8 – Your Body Will Thank You

When you spoil yourself with a massage, facial, or other treatment that affects both your beauty and your health, you’ll enjoy extra health benefits beyond relaxation and aesthetics. It’s important to look after your body, so use that rationale to justify treating yourself to a beauty and health treatment such as a cleansing facial or deep tissue massage.

#9 – It Can Make You a Nicer Person!

Stressed people are often more irritable, more critical of others, and have shorter tempers. By de-stressing, you’ll become less irritable, less critical, and more patient. Sounds good, right? By taking some time to spoil yourself and relax, you’ll be more pleasant to be around.

#10 – You’re Important

You (and your health and wellbeing) are your most important asset. We repeat: You’re important. And we all know that we need to take care of important things. So take some time to look after your physical and emotional health and lower your stress levels with some well-deserved pampering. You’re important, so you deserve it. Go on – treat yourself!
