Spend The Afternoon In The Bookstore
Nothing beats perusing the aisle of your favorite book store. Pack a snack, grab a latte and make it a day surrounded by great literature of all genres. Pick up a few great reads that stimulate your mind to last all throughout the fall.
Visit A Local Garden
On a early weekend morning, head out to your local farmer’s market or community garden. Pick out a few blooms that make you smile and build your very own bouquet. The small treat will be something to put a smile on your face with each glance during the week and it’ll totally be worth it.
Pack A Picnic In The Park
Girl, no one knows you better than you so pack up a picnic and take yourself out on date! Hit your local park on a beautiful afternoon, take a great book or an assortment of your favorite magazines and just enjoy.
Treat Yourself To A Day Of Pampering
Everyone needs and wants a little TLC and a day spent pampering yourself is always the right idea.
Enjoy A Bike Ride Through The City
Getting your exercise on will always increase your mood!
Sit Outside And People Watch
There is nothing like the fresh summer breeze on a nice day blowing across your face. Hang out on a local bench and enjoy the warm air! Put in your headphones on a playlist that perfectly reflects your mood and just zone out.
Take A Cooking Class
Ending the summer on a high note, master the art of a great meal. Go to a cooking class and learn how to make a meal just for 1 and save the recipe for the days you want to indulge in something nice.
Go For A Long Drive
Fill up the gas tank and hit the road! Turn on your favorite tunes, talk to yourself (or a high power) and come up with a master plan. You never know where that drive on the open road could take you–literally and figuratively!
Enjoy A Last Minute Staycation
Didn’t bask in the summer vibe as much as you wanted to? Book a weekend stay at a local hotel and indulge in the amenities. Dine in the restaurant, enjoy a spa package, sip on a cocktail poolside. Who says you have to leave your city to have a vacation to remember?
Go See A Cheesy Movie
Some may call it weird but heading out to the matinee all alone is always a solid plan.
Take a Walk
Get those endorphins flowing by taking a stroll through your local neighborhood or park. Track how far you walk and congratulate yourself with each and every step!
